2022 Cherokee Key Safety Features

Jeep provides a fair amount of standard safety features on the Cherokee. All cars come standard with eight airbags including dual front knee bags, and the usual slew of acronyms for various braking, stability, and traction assists. Recently, Jeep made a range of driver assists standard on all models, so every Cherokee now has blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency collision braking and full-speed forward collision warning, lane departure warning and lane keep assist, and a rearview camera. The Technology Group package adds adaptive cruise control, auto high beam headlights, side distance warning, and Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist. It's standard on the Limited and optional on the Trailhawk.

2022 Cherokee Reliability

No recalls affected the 2022 Cherokee, but the 2021 model was recalled twice for issues including front lower control arms that may fracture and a transmission oil cooler hose that could leak. 2020 models were also recalled, this time for a faulty rearview camera display image and a steering rack gear that could fail.

On a positive note, the number of complaints by owners is also relatively low and the latest J.D. Power Quality & Reliability score is a stellar 82 out of 100, which bodes well for ownership.
