An inline 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is standard. The powertrain produces 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. All of the Cherokee models in our Budd Lake inventory also have nine-speed transmissions. Front-wheel drive is standard and four-wheel is optional.

For more power under the hood, some might prefer a Cherokee equipped with the optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The 3.2-liter V6 engine is another option having a rating of 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque.

New owners also have the option of choosing the SUV with the Jeep Active Drive I, the Jeep Active Drive II or the Jeep Active Drive Lock 4WD system. Each option enables drivers to select a mode that accommodates different terrain types. By opting for a tow package, the Cherokee tows 2,000 to 4,500 pounds depending on the powertrain chosen.


The exterior of the SUV combines smooth curves with sharp lines and angles to give the Cherokee an updated look while reducing the vehicle's overall boxy appearance. The front end keeps Jeep's slotted grille, which has undergone refinement. Fierce-looking narrow headlights flank the grille on either side. Flared wheel wells and an undulating body design accent the vehicle's sides. The angular rear features a tailgate top spoiler. Matte-colored body cladding surrounds the entire lower region of the body.


The new Cherokee seats up to five passengers comfortably with plenty of head and legroom. The round gauges on the instrument panel create a retro vibe. Storage space behind the rear seats spans 25.8 cubic feet. The space expands to 54.7 cubic feet by folding the rear seats.
