Exterior Features

Premium Design

Demanding attention on and off the road, the 2021 Cherokee is an SUV that presents a design that fits in expertly on city streets and getting dirty in the mud. That signature Jeep 7-slot grille is framed by aerodynamic LED headlights, pushing the entire vehicle forward. It all leads back to a curved body that ends in a stylish rear that makes any adventure even more flashy, smart and functional over every curve.

LED Illumination

The LED lighting in the Cherokee is advanced, whether it’s day, night or in bad weather, your Cherokee will always lead you on the way. The standard LED headlights, on every model, do their job cutting through the day or night, and look good, too, with their slim modern design. Available fog lights make short work of any mist or fog that may impede your drive.
