What separates the capability of the Cherokee?

All of the power and the adventures and the fun that you're guaranteed to have in the 2018 Jeep Cherokee is only possible because of the hearts that drive it. The base engine is a 2.4-liter Tigershark Multiair 2 which bumps 184 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque throughout the vehicle while offering a driving range of 474 miles. For some improved power, there's an optional 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 that produces 271 horsepower and 239 lb.-ft. of torque while boosting your towing capacity of up to 4,500 pounds. Either of these engines can find a second life of increased performance if the owner chooses to add on the Jeep Active Drive 4x4 system, the Active Drive II, or the Active Drive Lock. The Active Drive I comes with a rear axle disconnect and a traction management system that offers four modes: Auto Snow, Sport, and Sand/Mud. The Action Drive II continues the efficient trend with an added low-range and neutral mode and the Action Drive Lock further adds on a mechanical rear axle.

What Cherokee trim is best for me?

Everyone faces a unique set of challenges throughout the week and the Jeep Cherokee offers five different trims to provide you with the features you need to make those challenges a walk in the park. It all begins with the standard trim, the Latitude, which is loaded with top-notch standard features like 17-inch wheels, xenon headlights, height-adjustable front seats, sliding and reclining rear seats with 60/40-split folding seatbacks, a folding front passenger seat with a storage compartment inside the seat cushion, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera. For those looking to really dominate difficult terrains check out the Trailhawk (standard all-wheel drive, wider tires made for all-terrain, greater ground clearance, suspension tuned for performance, hill ascent and descent control). But maybe you spend most of your time in the city, try the most comfortable Limited (built up with a larger driver information display, leather upholstery, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control). Or maybe you spend most of your time on long road trips, no worries just look into the Overland which maximizes travel distance as well as providing its own unique interior and exterior qualities.

What safety features are available with the 2018 Jeep Cherokee?

Jeep's versatile legacy seeps into the Cherokee's frame where high-strength steel has been forged into a hearty structure, maximizing both adventure (via weight distribution) and protection. Lining the structure is an absurd insulation of ten advanced airbags.On top of this standard set up, owners will have the opportunity to option on a long list of available safety and security features. Some of the highlights of the optional features are the preventative Blind Spot Monitoring and LaneSense Departure Warning systems. With Blind Spot, drivers will be made aware by audible and visual warnings of the entrance of another vehicle into either of the Journey's blind spots. Similarly, LaneSense keeps track of the Journey's place within its own lane and alerts the driver, again both audibly and visually, if they begin to sway out of it. In the case that a driver fails to respond the system will begin to help correct course.
