Tech features are plentiful, and the interior is both refined and functional. To learn more about exactly which features we love in the Cherokee, keep reading!

Under the Cherokee’s Hood

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee’s prowess starts under the hood. Two engines are available; standard is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder capable of producing 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. Alternatively, a 3.2-liter V6 is available, offering ample power for this crossover. It releases 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are linked to Jeep’s go-to nine-speed automatic transmission. Both front-wheel and four-wheel drive are available for the 2017 Jeep Cherokee, and the Trailhawk trim comes exclusively in four-wheel drive. Jeep offers two four-wheel-drive systems, Active Drive I and Active Drive II. Both offer the coveted Selec-Terrain dial for optimal navigation of any terrain or weather. Sport, Latitude, and Limited trim levels offer Active Drive I, while the Trailhawk and Overland trims offer Active Drive II, which provides low-range gearing, an extra Rock mode on the Selec-Terrain dial, and a locking rear differential. When properly equipped, the 2017 Cherokee can also tow an impressive 4,500 pounds.
