Under the Cherokee's Hood

The Jeep Cherokee this year can drive nearly 500 miles on one tank of gas which is quite remarkable.

Design of Jeep Cherokee
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. Another newer bit of technology is Engine Stop Start which turns the engine off when the vehicle is stopped to help conserve gasoline. This doesn't change anything on or off in the cabin and it allows the engine to resume fully when needed. This feature also is designed to be turn off at the press of a button if not wanted. 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.
