What’s New for the 2018 Jeep Cherokee?
Due to its success in previous models, the 2.4 L Tigershark engine hasn’t been changed much for the 2018 Jeep Cherokee. Featuring four cylinders, this compact engine yields about 185 horsepower and slightly over 170 pound-feet of torque. Having the Flex Fuel label and MultiAir 2 technology, the Tigershark engine could be powered by E85 fuel. Also having a rich heritage, the 3.2 L Pentastar engine makes an applauded comeback into the powertrain. This V6 engine can unleash more than 270 hp and approximately 240 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, this six-cylinder engine can automatically stop and start in response to traffic movement. You can tow a 4,500-pound trailer with the Pentastar powertrain. The Tigershark engine offers a standard towing capacity of up to 2,000 pounds. Consisting of a nine-speed gearbox, an automatic transmission is installed in the Cherokee. This dynamic transmission is tuned to create a wide range of gear ratios for crawling on steep and rough terrains. In fact, the Cherokee can achieve a maximum crawl ratio of 56:1, which is ideal for navigating remote landscapes. As an entry-level 4×4 system, the Active Drive I delivers part-time engagement of all the wheels. The Active Drive II system is engineered to handle tougher drives in demanding conditions. Both of these drivetrain configurations come with four modes that are managed by the Selec-Terrain Control. For example, you can activate the Sand/Mud Mode or the Snow Mode to confidently handle unpaved trails. The Active Drive Lock essentially adds the Rock Mode to the Selec-Terrain Control, which is managed by an electronic dial.
Inside the 2018 Jeep Cherokee, you’ll also notice plenty of new and improved installations, such as the Uconnect 3C console. This patented multimedia system has an 8.4-inch touchscreen that reacts to gentle taps and swipes. A GPS navigation system with 2-D maps and 3D city views will guide you to any destination. SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link are readily available to deliver supplemental directions in real time. Speaking of SiriusXM Satellite Radio, you could tune into more than 150 entertainment channels on a premium sound system by Alpine. A media hub in the central console also includes an SD card reader, USB port and auxiliary jack. Traditional wireless Bluetooth is another feature that lets you sync a mobile device with the Uconnect 3C suite. Replacing a conventional analog instrument cluster, the Driver Information Digital Cluster Display receives plenty of data from the infotainment system. This high-resolution display shows tire pressure, fuel level, off-road settings and many other parameters.
