2017 Jeep Cherokee at Puente Hills Jeep

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee holds up to its reputation as one of the top crossover SUVs that provides a comfortable on-road driving experience while also offering a superior off-road experience.  Some of the highlights of the 2017 Jeep Cherokee include an optional V6 engine for more power and towing capability, three different four-wheel drive options, advanced infotainment system equipped with touchscreen, five trim levels that offer advanced off-road options, and a competitive fuel performance. This vehicle allows the driver to pursue the thrill of the off-road experience without sacrificing the desire for a sleek-looking, comfortable vehicle.  

Under the Cherokee's Hood

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee offers options for all different types of drivers.  For the driver who has no need to tow, the 184-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is a perfect choice.  Gas mileage for the four-cylinder front-wheel drive option is estimated at 25 mpg (21 city/30 highway). For the driver who enjoys more power or who will be hauling a load, the 271-hp 3.2-liter V6 engine is available.  The V6 has a 4500-pound towing capacity, and, per Edmunds testing, a V6-powered Cherokee Limited with Active Drive I went from zero to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds.  Clearly, the V6 can hold its own.  For the extreme adventurist, the Trailhawk model does not disappoint. It comes equipped with a specialized four-wheel drive system and has wider 17-inch all-terrain tires, tow hooks, hill ascent and descent control, a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen with USB connectivity, smartphone-app integration, and several other specialized features.  The Overland model takes the off-roader to the highest comfort level with high quality interior features.  Some of these include: a leather instrument panel, heated leather power seats, power liftgate, wood trim, a navigation system, upgraded Alpine stereo, Bluetooth, and HD Radio. All models are outfitted with a nine-speed automatic transmission, not typical for most mid-size SUV competitors. Suspension is smooth and the Cherokee offers more comfort than one would expect in an off-road capable vehicle. Its Selec-Terrain system uses the vehicle's stability control, brakes, traction, and engine-management system for added security and traction on various road conditions.
