The Jeep Cherokee is well-known for its off-roading capability, but it's more than just a capable off-roader. When you're on pavement, the Cherokee is fun to drive, thanks to its infotainment offerings and smooth ride.

Dimensions are something you'll need to consider prior to driving a car in Ithaca, Binghamton, and Cortland. Will the Cherokee be a good fit in your garage? Do you have enough space to store cargo? These are the questions that need answering, and when you know more about the Jeep Cherokee dimensions, you'll have those answers.

Jeep Cherokee Exterior Measurements

The Jeep Cherokee measures in at 183.2 inches long, with an overall width of 73.6 inches in certain models, and 74.9 inches with the Jeep Active Drive lock setup. As the Cherokee carries various setups, including 4x2 and 4x4, there are different dimensions depending on the model you purchase.

For instance, ground clearance may be something you're considering if you do a lot of off-roading. In the entry-level Jeep Cherokee 4x2, you'll have up to 6.1 inches of ground clearance. However, with the 4x4 with Jeep Active Drive Lock, you'll get 8.7 inches of ground clearance.

If you're thinking about fitting the Cherokee in your garage, it carries an overall height (with roof rack) of 68.3 inches, though the 4x2 checks in at 66.3 inches. Going through a stream with the Cherokee? You'll be able to pass through up to 20 inches of water while persevering along to your destination.
