Drove a Trailhawk V6 a few weeks ago, and was very impressed. The headlights are weird looking, but other than that I love the looks. The car is light-years better and more refined than the old Cherokee. It rode more like a Eurocar than a SUV. It's on my short list, for sure.
"The design dispenses with the framed grille altogether in favor of a meeting of the hood and the composite bumper, midface, in a prognathic underbite."
Yeah, had to look that up too.
The 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk rides and handles wonderfully, despite its unfortunate appearance (Wall St. Journal - free link when I posted this)
Any reports on the Trailhawk mpgs??? V6 or I4, like to get an idea of the real world numbers
The early consumer reviews here are outstanding, but I see you've already found them. One owner is reporting 28.5 highway and 22.5 in mixed driving for his V6 out in the real world. Not many reports, but fuelly.com is showing ~21.3 mpg for the V6. Hard to tell, but I assume they mean in mixed driving.
For non-real world numbers, that WSJ link says "EPA fuel economy: 19/27/22 mpg" for the V6. And it says "The front-drive, four-cylinder Cherokee rates a 31 mpg on the highway."
The LA Times got 20.5 mpg mixed driving over 300 miles of testing in a loaded V6.
Edmunds has the specs too.
The automatic hand brake sounds a bit funky.
Gas mileage so far for my Cherokee Latitude V6: approx. 19 city and 28/29 highway. This is less than other cars I've owned, but well worth the trade off. I love this car! Also, I've only had the car for seven weeks and from what I read, the mpg may improve.
