Not only would you save money by avoiding depreciation costs by choosing a used car, but Jeep Cherokee models since 2011 have similar features to those in 2019 as they belong to the same generation of vehicles. Though the technical features are comparable, creature comforts can vary wildly even within the range. From 2014 onwards, the interior got an upgrade where ergonomic seats and stylish materials were used to make it feel more luxurious. From 2016, the performance was upgraded with tuned steering and suspension, as well as more economical fuel economy.
