Under the Cherokee's Hood
The engine selections for the 2016 Jeep Cherokee consist of a base and an upgrade. The base is a 2.4-liter inline 4 cylinder Tigershark with 184 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque. The upgrade version is the 3.2-liter V-6 with 271 horsepower and 239 lb.-ft. of torque. Both get excellent gas mileage and offer either all-wheel or front-wheel drive. The V-6 Pentastar also has the ability to tow up to 4,500 pounds.

Design of Jeep Cherokee
The premium model of Cherokee offered is the intensely capable Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk which is extremely proud to be the most capable SUV in the segment. Off road ability is certainly front and center in this offering with skid plates, differential lock, tow hooks and a one-inch lift from the factory are featured. The design angles of the Trailhawk are for situations occurring off road. The Trailhawk is Trail Rated meaning it meets certain criteria when it comes to ground clearance, traction, articulation, water fording and maneuverability. Jeep Active Drive transitions the vehicle in and out of four-wheel drive automatically when conditions dictate. Steering corrections are also helped by this technology during tough conditions. Another jump up brings you to Jeep Active Drive II which is part of the Cherokee Latitude and Limited and comes with two types including torque management and low range allowing for better climbing. The height of the ride is also increased by an inch. The Jeep Cherokee can tow all of the way up to a maximum of 4,500 pounds which is best-in-class. When the 4x4 ability is not required the vehicle can disconnect the rear axle to increase fuel efficiency.
