There's no doubting the fact that the 2023 Cherokee crossover is a good-looking car, especially when you compare its face to the alien-looking design it had before Jeep facelifted it. Wheel size is 17 inches on both trims, and 18s are available optionally on the Altitude Lux. LED headlights are standard across the lineup, as are LED foglights and roof rails. A dual-pane panoramic sunroof is available on both trims. The Trailhawk is differentiated by extended black lower-body and -bumper cladding, red tow hooks in the front bumper, and a black hood decal.
The newest Jeep Cherokee remains a compact crossover SUV but has slightly larger exterior dimensions in comparison to competitors like the Toyota RAV4. However, the dimensions differ slightly from model to model. The wheelbase, for instance, is 106.6 inches on the Altitude Lux and 107.1 on the Trailhawk with a lockable 4x4 system. The latter trim is shorter overall at 182.9 inches compared to the 183.1-inch length of the Altitude Lux. The width is 73.2 in. on Altitude Lux and 74.9 in. on the Trailhawk, while heights are 66.2 and 67.8 inches, respectively. Given that the Cherokee is actually capable of off-roading, the Trailhawk has 8.7 inches of ground clearance and approach, breakover, and departure angles of 29.9, 22.9, and 32.2 degrees, respectively.
With a variety of configurations, the curb weight of the Cherokee can be as light as 3,710 lbs but as heavy as 4,260 lbs on the 2.0T-equipped Trailhawk.

The Jeep Cherokee SUV's bold styling grabs attention, and while Jeep used to offer its compact SUV in a wide range of colors that appealed to both the young at heart and those that like an understated look, these have been cut down to just five low-key choices for both 2023 trims. These are the no-cost Bright White and four $495 options: Diamond Black Crystal, Granite Crystal Metallic, Sting-Gray, and Hydro Blue.
