2018 Jeep Cherokee Delivers Boundless Performance

2018 Jeep Cherokee performance surpasses expectations whether conquering the backcountry or swinging through the city thanks to:

  • Two Available Engines
  • Selec-Terrain Traction Management System
  • Three Available Jeep® Active Drive 4×4 Systems
  • 56:1 Crawl Ratio
  • 9-Speed Automatic Transmission

All Jeep nameplates have big shoes to fill and high expectations to meet, and the latest Jeep Cherokee is more than fit to do so.

2018 Jeep Cherokee Performance Highlights

Trail Rated® Badge

Seeing the Trail Rated badge on the Trailhawk® trim guarantees masterful performance in terms of traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording.

Three Available Jeep® Active Drive 4x4 Systems

Choose from Jeep® Active Drive I 4x4, Jeep® Active Drive II 4x4, or Jeep® Active Drive Lock 4x4 systems.

Jeep® Active Drive Lock 4x4 with Four-Wheel LOW Mode

Need to crawl over rugged terrain? Choose the Trailhawk® trim for Selec-Terrain Traction Management ROCK mode and a mechanical rear axle lock.

Engine Options

A standard 2.4L TigerShark makes up to 184 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque, while an available 3.2L Pentastar V6 makes 271 hp and 239 lb-ft.

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee Promotes Go-Anywhere Performance

The new Jeep Cherokee never shirks, whether you need to tow up to 4,500 lbs., achieve up to 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, or head into the backcountry. On street or highway, the Cherokee’s front and rear independent suspension complement its high-strength steel structure for a confident ride even at high-speeds or through tight corners. On top of that, Electronic Roll Mitigation and Hill Start Assist maintain flawless control through every journey.

When you’re pitting yourself against the toughest conditions Mother Nature can throw at you, the following handling and utility features have your back:

  • 9-Speed Automatic Transmission: Nine separate gear ratios excel whether you’re cruising the highway or crawling through a rock field outside Poway, CA.
  • Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System: Allows you to cycle between four modes: Auto, Snow, Sport, and Sand/Mud.

If off-roading is your focus, consider the Trail Rated® Trailhawk® for:

  • Off-Road Optimized Approach and Departure Angles
  • Additional ROCK Selec-Terrain® Mode
  • Skid Plates
  • 56:1 Crawl Ratio
  • Available 1-Inch Suspension Lift

Earning critical acclaim while outpacing the competition, like the Ford Escape and Chevrolet Equinox, the Jeep Cherokee feels in a class of its own. Whether you’d like to discuss financing or schedule a test drive, turn to Jack Powell CDJR today.
