While the Jeep Cherokee makes a good family car, it does not have seven seats. Rather, it has five seats. Despite this fact, many families still find the Jeep Cherokee suits their needs.
The 2016 Jeep Cherokee earns high reviews for safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an important feature for families. The base model gets 22/31 city/highway gas mileage, while the V6 engine gets 21/29. Reviewers say the front seats are comfortable and the back seats are roomy enough for adults. The Jeep Cherokee also can fit three car seats across the back row, unlike many other five-passenger SUVs, which is another important feature for families with young children.
