Multiple complaints about the nine-speed automatic transmission, peaking around the spring of 2015. Not reflected in the stats because in many cases there has been no hardware-based solution.

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Jeep Cherokee

2015 Jeep Cherokee Gas Mileage: Neutral
2014 When I was especially easy on the new Cherokee's gas and brake pedals, its trip computer reported averages as high as 31.8 in suburban driving. I observed suburban averages around 27 more often--still quite good for a powerful all-wheel-drive crossover. The clunky nine-speed automatic deserves a lot of the credit, as it keeps engine speed below 1,500 rpm when cruising at up to 55 mph. The Jeep Cherokee V6 AWD's EPA ratings are much better than those of the GMC Acadia V6 AWD, 19 mpg city, 27 mpg highway vs. 16/23. But they're not quite as good as the Escape's (21/28) much less the Forester's (23/28). Note that the Jeep is most competitive in highway driving, where the transmission's three additional ratios enable a much taller top gear. In city driving the much smaller turbocharged engines have an edge, especially when hitched to a CVT (as in the Subaru). full 2014 Jeep Cherokee review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Jeep Cherokee

2015 Jeep Cherokee Gas Mileage: Pros
2014 4dr SUV 271-horsepower 3.2L V6
9-speed shiftable automatic AWD
For being a vehicle that weighs over 4,000 pounds it is hard to complain about the as mileage. I do mostly highway driving or driving on back roads with 45-55 MPH speed limits. When I drive aggressively I get approximately 25-26 MPG. Under my normal driving conditons I have calculated just shy of 30 MPG. This is without the vehicle being entirely broken in yet, so the mileage may even still increase over the next few months. Sport mode will decrease the mileage, as it changes the shift points and holds lower gears longer. More fun at the expense of more gas used. No real suprise there. If you do a lot of city driving and are worried about gas then I do not recommend the Cherokee. With first and second gear being so tall, this thing uses a lot of gas in stop and go driving. Any decent amount of highway driving balances this out though. full 2014 Jeep Cherokee review
2015 Jeep Cherokee Gas Mileage: Cons
2014 4dr SUV 271-horsepower 3.2L V6
9-speed shiftable automatic AWD w/low range
The 3.2 V6 doesn't boast the best fuel economy for a vehicle that is relatively light and very aerodynamic. full 2014 Jeep Cherokee review
