2022 Jeep Cherokee
There are a lot of iconic or very recognizable platforms on the Jeep roster, broadly available at the Southside Dodge showroom. The 2022 Jeep Cherokee will arrive with a number of upgrades and aesthetic changes that will allow it to stand apart from previous versions as well as other vehicles in the small SUV class. Independent online reviews have praised the 2022 Cherokee for its strong performance scores from the broad range of available powertrains, well-mannered suspension that is effective on most road surfaces and its very user-friendly infotainment system. Follow along with Southside Dodge as we take a closer look at this innovative platform.
Unique & Refined Exterior
The 2022 Jeep Cherokee offers a unique silhouette. Designers have further refined that outline with updated changes around the entire crossover SUV. However, the 2022 Cherokee retains the automaker’s iconic seven-slot grille design and sleek LED headlights.
Jeep models are known for their off-road prowess, and the 2022 Cherokee falls firmly inside that concept. However, it also has a long list of user-friendly features, including a hands-free power rear liftgate. Owners of the 2022 Cherokee with this feature will be able to easily load the rear of the SUV while their hands are full simply by having the keyfob in the pocket and making a kicking motion at the rear bumper. You can also close the liftgate if you have your hands full using the same motion.
Southside Dodge customers looking for a 2022 Cherokee model with extra style should take a look at the Altitude trim. In addition to offering V-6 performance, owners of the current Cherokee Altitude will get:
- Leather-faced black seats
- Blacked-out exterior badging
- 18-Inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels

Driver Information Display
Every 2022 Jeep Cherokee that becomes available at the Southside Dodge showroom is going to be well-equipped with impressive technology.

Drivers can switch between available information using a button on the SUV’s steering wheel.
It doesn’t make much sense to take the 2022 Jeep Cherokee out for an adventure if the SUV’s occupants can’t experience everything. The available Sun & Sound Group offers the Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof and Alpine Premium Sound System.
