Performance Highlights from the 2018 Jeep Cherokee

You’ll be able to tow up to 2,000 pounds with the standard engine or a staggering 4,500 pounds with the available V6.

Engine Options

The standard 2.4L TigerShark Multi-Air makes up to 184 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque; the available 3.2L Pentastar V6 offers 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque.

High-Performance Features for Roads and Trails

Few vehicles are constructed around performance as fully as the new Cherokee, which makes unstoppable capability its watchword from the body structure through the powertrain. With front and rear independent suspensions and a high-strength steel structure for enhanced torsional rigidity, the vehicle feels extremely strong and controlled across all road surfaces, with Electronic Roll Mitigation and Hill Start Assist keeping you perfectly in command.

A sophisticated 9-speed automatic transmission uses its nine separate gear ratios to deliver expertly tuned performance regardless of whether you’re crawling up a slope or cruising between Hayward, Cumberland, and Rice Lake. Audacious power streams to all four wheels through either Jeep Active Drive I or Jeep Active Drive II to ensure responsive performance.

For truly groundbreaking off-road performance, explore the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Its Trail Rated badge signifies masterful ability in terms of traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording, and it entails a variety of exclusive capability features.
