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

Jeep Cherokee Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
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. see full Jeep Cherokee review

The 3.2 V6 doesn't boast the best fuel economy for a vehicle that is relatively light and very aerodynamic. see full Jeep Cherokee review

The Compass has the fuel economy of a 4 cylinder sedan, with the comfort of an SUV. Yet those 4 cylinders put out approx 172 HP, more than enough to get the vehicle hussling down the road at a good pace without feeling gutless. see full Jeep Compass review

Compared to the 13 mpg avg of our 04 Dakota, it was a no brainer. see full Jeep Compass review
