The 2023 Jeep Cherokee lineup is being reduced as it prepares to end production

Posted on
  • The 2023 Jeep Cherokee lineup includes only two models: the Altitude Lux and the Trailhawk.
  • A 180-hp 2.4-liter inline-four is the base engine, and a 270-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four is optional.
  • Jeep says it’s preparing to end production of the current-generation Cherokee next month.

Jeep has greatly reduced its Cherokee lineup for the last model year of the current generation. The 2023 Cherokee is now available in Altitude Lux and Trailhawk trim levels, and the only engine options now are the naturally aspirated 180-hp 2.4-liter inline-four and 270-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four; the previous 3.2 liter V-6 engine has been dropped.

Prices start at $39,290 for the Altitude Lux and $42,890 for the Trailhawk, and both come standard with four-wheel drive. That’s a big jump from the 2022 model’s base price, which starts at $31,590 for the front-wheel-drive Altitude; even the 2022 Altitude 4×4, $6200 less than this year’s Altitude Lux model, which gets extra equipment including leather seats, heated steering wheel and remote start. The Trailhawk, which previously had a 3.2-liter V-6, got a $3,750 price increase from last year.

We previously reported that the Belvedere, Illinois, plant that makes compact SUVs will be idle after February 2023. Jeep later told us that the Cherokee under construction now is a 2023 model. Reports that Cherokee production may move to Mexico after the Illinois plant is idle suggest that the Cherokee’s replacement maybe coming soon. The current generation KL Cherokee has been on sale since the 2014 model year and is too late to replace.
