The new 2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude LUX promises a new level of comfort, luxury, and safety, combined with unmatched capability in the midsize SUV segment.

Standard safety and security features on Jeep Cherokee Latitude LUX models include:

The Cherokee Latitude LUX comes standard with the 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with stop-start engine technology and high-efficient nine-speed automatic transmission. As the only V-6 engine in its class, the Cherokee Latitude LUX delivers 29 mpg highway and best-in-class towing capability (up to 4,500 pounds). The 2.0-liter I-4 turbocharged engine, one of the most technologically advanced engines in the automotive industry, is optional.

For unmatched 4×4 capability in all weather conditions, the Latitude LUX comes standard with the Jeep brand’s renowned Selec-Terrain traction control system, which allows the driver to choose between five modes for optimal on- and off-road performance.

The rear-axle disconnect seamlessly switches between two- and four-wheel drive for full-time torque management and does not require input from the driver.
