2018 Jeep Cherokee at Buhler Chrysler Jeep Dodge

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is a serious off-roader with three options of its four-wheel-drive systems, dual engine choices, and its own inherent traction system! This capable 5-seater is also a seasoned captain of the road, with excellent passenger comfort and a quiet ride, plus all the safety features one could want built-in as well. The Jeep Cherokee rockets skywards with five trim gradations for 2018, with a keen attention to installing more accommodations despite the consolidation from previous times. There is an exceptional 54.9 cu-ft of cargo volume within this vehicle when the back seats are folded, that many will appreciate. Also new, the mid-size SUV Jeep Cherokee can be either 4x2 or 4x4 on four out of five of its models, with the Trialhawk understandably 4x4-only as that's what it's made for.

What powers the 2018 Jeep Cherokee?

There's a lot going on under this hood, like a standard 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir2 I-4 engine that attains 184-horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque for all models (besides Overland trim). The standard on the Overland trim is a 3.2L Pentastar V-6 engine with VVT that makes 271-horsepower and a 239 lb-ft of torque and allows engine stop/start functionality. The 2.4-L engine is estimated to get up to 30 mpg on the highway, while the 3.2-L V6 sees best-in-class 29 mpg on the highway! There is a standard 948TE nine-speed automatic transmission with any engine selection. The V-6 utilizes an industry first rear-axle disconnect when 4x4 is not needed, saving fuel. The three 4x4 systems to look into are the and Jeep Active Drive Lock, the Jeep Active Drive I, and the Jeep Active Drive II. Separate to those, Jeep also put in the Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control system with up to 5 pre-set modes (Sport, Rock, 'Sand/Mud', Snow, and Auto). The 2018 Cherokee not only achieves a 56:1 crawl ratio for superior low-range traction but also gets a best-in-class V-6 towing maximum of 4,500-lbs!

Can you go over a few of the features of the 2018 Cherokee?

The trim lineup is made up of the Latitude Plus, Overland, Limited, the Latitude, and the dirt-road-loving Trailhawk. The 2018 base-model Latitude includes 17-inch aluminum wheels, body-color door handles/mirrors, roof rails, (HID) headlamps, fog lamps, and a reaview back-up camera. The Latitude Plus trim involves the benefits of a SiriusXM Radio, an 8.4-inch Uconnect radio & color touchscreen, standard ambient lighting, Passive Entry/Keyless Go, an 8-way power driver seat with power 4-way lumbar support, and audio mounted controls on a leather steering wheel. With the Limited models, owners can obtain as standard a power liftgate and some excellent assistive security functions! The Trailhawk model also has those identical safety features as standard but also throws in a dual-zone Automatic Temperature Control, among other items.

Safety and security. Are these areas integrated into the 2018 Cherokee?

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee touts safety with ten airbags as standard, a security alarm, Trailer-sway control, Keyless Entry with panic button, and Hill-start Assist. Electronic stability control is the umbrella covering functions such as an integrated vehicle stability management system, a 4-channel ABS, all-speed traction control, Brake Assist, and Electronic Roll Mitigation. Blind-spot Monitoring is available, which assists drivers in the prevention of accidents with vehicles in other lanes. Assistive safety technologies are in certain models, and those options consist of Adaptive Cruise Control w/Stop & Go, LaneSense Lane Departure Warning, and a Full-speed Forward Collision Warning with Crash Mitigation (within the Technology Group).
