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

Kia Sorento Real Gas Mileage: Pros

2013 0 I average about 22-25 miles/gallon, but only if I use a fuel addative every 5,000 miles. If not I get at best about 21miles/gallon. see full Kia Sorento review

Average fuel economy at 22.5 MPG is lower than expected but still not bad. see full Kia Sorento review

Always want more MPG but it is at least 25% better than my 2006 Ford Explorer. After 15K miles of highway, city and occasionally pulling a 5'x10' trailer, I'm averaging exactly 20.9 MPG. see full Kia Sorento review

I average 22 mpg in mosty city driving. Not bad for its size and weight. see full Kia Sorento review

For a rather large crossover the fuel economy is absolutely amazing, check it out, it speaks for itself, and in the frist month we are getting exactly the rated efficiency, very pleased. see full Kia Sorento review

Horrible fuel especially in stop and go traffic. I drive approximately 30 miles per day and within a week the take is nearly empty. see full Kia Sorento review

The window sticker said it would get 29 mpg on the highway. I did a 500 mile trip and averaged 25 mpg. On my last 5 vehicles I averaged 2 to 3 mpg more than the window sticker when on the highway. Something is wrong with this picture. see full Kia Sorento review

Not been brave enough to calculate fuel economy yet, but my Audi A6 1.9tdi used to return 33mpg whilst towing. I doubt the Sorento will get near that even solo! see full Kia Sorento review
