1. Car Buying Advice | 2021 Jeep Cherokee Trim Level Guide

The Jeep Cherokee is one of the most iconic compact SUVs ever made, and the 2021 model year combines the same versatility and practicality this nameplate is known for. The 2021 Jeep Cherokee is offered in five different trim levels with a starting MSRP of $27,455. If you're in the market for a compact SUV that offers the legendary Jeep Trail Rated off-road capabilities, four-wheel drive comes standard on the rugged Trailhawk model and is optional on all other 2021 Jeep Cherokee trim levels for an extra $1,500.

2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude

With the starting price of $27,455, the 2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude comes fully equipped with standard features that include full LED headlights and daytime running lights, 17-inch wheels, cloth seats and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The Latitude and Latitude Plus trim levels are powered by a 2.4-liter Tigershark inline-four that produces 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque.

2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Plus

Moving up from the base trim level, the 2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Plus adds more content to go along with a starting price of $29,525. Standard features on the Latitude Plus such as fog lights, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, and there's also an available Altitude Package that adds more style through black interior and exterior accents including Gloss Black 18-inch wheels.

2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude LUX 

The newest addition to the Cherokee lineup is the 2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude LUX trim level, which is priced starting at $30,875.

2021 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk

With a starting price of $36,330, the 2021 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk comes standard with four-wheel drive, bigger tires, more ground clearance,  and a unique look with distinctive red tow hooks front and rear.
