The adventurous drivers of Hamilton, Madison, and Smyrna need a capable SUV that can tackle any kind of terrain that challenges it. They also need a stylish and sporty vehicle that can conquer the concrete jungle, as well. The Jeep Cherokee has a refined style that will turn heads, and it has the capability that you have come to expect from a Jeep.
Our team at University Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has put together these reviews of the Jeep Cherokee. Here, you’ll find information on the performance of this SUV, as well as interior comfort and available technology.
Jeep Cherokee Specs
The Cherokee is outfitted with the 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine. It delivers 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. With a 9-speed automatic transmission at its side, this SUV delivers a smooth ride. It also gives the Cherokee great fuel-efficiency. It gets an EPA-estimated 21 MPG city and 29 MPG highway.
You can upgrade to a 3.2L Pentastar® V6 engine. This engine gives the Cherokee a little more kick. It cranks out 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. Plus, Stop/Start technology cuts off fuel flow and turns the engine off when the vehicle is brought to a stop. This works to save fuel and reduce emissions.
The Cherokee is also available with a 2.0L turbo engine. It produces 270 horsepower and turns the torque up to 295 lb-ft of torque. Pairing this engine with the 9-speed automatic transmission increases towing capacity and helps it get great fuel economy.
The available Jeep Active Drive I 4×4 System includes a rear axle disconnect feature that only engages when there is a need to improve vehicle efficiency. There is also a brake lock differential. It works to provide great traction and control no matter what terrain or road conditions are in front of you.
The available Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System gives you even more control with four selectable driving modes. There is Snow, Sport, and Sand/Mud. Plus, there is an Auto mode for your everyday drives to work!
Jeep Cherokee Interior
Wherever your adventures lead, the Jeep Cherokee will keep you connected on your way. The standard 7-inch display with Uconnect® 4, is equipped with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Once you connect your compatible smartphone, you’ll be able to blast your favorite tunes through the available nine amplified speakers with a subwoofer.
Even when you go way off the map, you won’t lose your signal. The Cherokee is outfitted with an available 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. It has a range of 50 feet and can connect up to eight devices.
You’ll have plenty of space to store everything you need for the next adventure with this SUV. The 60/40 split-folding rear seats give you access to a maximum cargo capacity of 54.9 cubic feet!
You can take on every adventure during the cold winter months, too! The Jeep Cherokee offers an available heated steering wheel and available heated front seats.
Safe on Every Adventure
New Jeep Cherokee models have great safety features that are designed to give you and your passengers peace of mind, while also making you more confident behind the wheel.
The steel frame makes this vehicle lightweight and gives it better dynamics, but its foremost function is crash protection. The robust design is a bolster that protects the vehicle’s occupants. Plus, the eight standard airbags work together to provide the ultimate protection to passengers.
This SUV has a handful of available safety features that will help you be more aware while behind the wheel. There is the optional Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Path Detection, which work to keep watch over those hard-to-see places. Plus, the available Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking alerts you if you’re approaching another vehicle too rapidly. It can even help you apply the brakes in emergency situations.
The available Parallel and Perpendicular Park and Exit Assist system brings city sophistication to your trailblazing SUV. It recognizes open parking spaces, and with the push of a button, will begin to steer your Cherokee into the space. The guidance system will also direct you on when to brake and accelerate.
