Jeep Cherokee MPG

Well-known for its off-roading capabilities, the Jeep Cherokee can power your drives throughout Watkins Glen, Elmira, and Corning. The Maguire Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram of Watkins Glen sales professionals want you to be happy behind the wheel of your next car.

We understand that some of that happiness can depend on how often you're going to the pump to fill up. Fuel economy is important to every driver. In this space, we're taking a closer look at Jeep Cherokee miles per gallon statistics, to prepare you for the road ahead.  Contact us today to schedule a test drive!


As the Jeep Cherokee has six trims to select from, each one has its own style and personality. There are three engines available, so you can customize your drive and the feel of it, too.

The base 2.4-liter engine has dual variable valve timing technology, and a flow-control valve intake manifold. Mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission, it's able to deliver 180 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. A new engine on the Cherokee is the 2.0-liter turbo, which delivers 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, increasing towing capability in the process.

If we've saved the best for last, it's indeed the most powerful Cherokee engine. The available 3.2-liter Pentastar® V6 engine includes engine stop/start technology, which saves fuel on every trip. It's capable of towing up to 4,500 lbs., too.

Fuel Economy

One thing you'll need to consider is whether you'll be driving the Jeep Cherokee in its 4x2 or 4x4 setup. The two-wheel drive Jeep Cherokee has four wheels, with two being driven. The 4x4 means all four wheels are in use, for increased traction. This can affect MPG, as you might expect.

Here is what you can expect of the Cherokee when it comes to fuel economy:


  • 2.4-liter engine: 22 MPG city/31 MPG highway
  • 2.0-liter turbo engine: 23 MPG city/31 MPG highway
  • 3.2-liter V6 engine: 20 MPG city/29 MPG highway


  • 2.4-liter engine: 21 MPG city/29 MPG highway
  • 2.0-liter turbo engine: 21 MPG city/29 MPG highway
  • 3.2-liter V6 engine: 19 MPG city/27 MPG highway

Visit Our Service Center

There are a few factors capable of affecting your Jeep Cherokee MPG. Staying up to date with oil changes is important. If the oil isn't changed and the oil filter is blocked, it can cause the vehicle to work harder.

Similarly, tire pressure is something you'll want to keep track of. If the tires are not inflated to proper pressure, the car will have to work harder. If they're out of alignment, the tires may pull against the motion of the car, with added strain reducing gas mileage. Schedule a visit to our service center, and let our maintenance professionals take care of any Jeep Cherokee oil change, tire rotation, or another service.
