What powertrain options do I have with my 2017 Jeep Cherokee?

Two available engines form the 2017 Cherokee's impressive powertrain lineup and emphasize power and efficiency. The standard 16-valve 2.4-liter Tigershark MultiAir 2 can achieve up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway when mated to the available nine-speed automatic transmission and can travel up to 474 miles on a single tank. The optional award-winning 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 engine, meanwhile, produces 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque, while still maintaining fuel efficiency with integrated start-stop technology. With the V6 engine, the 2017 Cherokee has a towing capacity of up to 4,500 pounds. Three available four-wheel-drive systems build on each other to provide increasing levels of capability. Jeep Active Drive I features a rear axle disconnect for improved efficiency and a Selec-Terrain Traction Management System with four modes: Auto, Snow, Sport and Sand/Mud. Jeep Active Drive II adds on low range and neutral modes for extra traction and the ability to be towed flat behind an RV. Topping off the 4x4 lineup is Jeep Active Drive Lock (standard on the Cherokee Trailhawk) which enhances the Selec-Terrain system with an additional Rock mode, as well as adding a mechanical rear axle lock.

Available chrome details include dual chrome exhaust tips and give the Cherokee a luxurious feel. On the interior, the Cherokee's cabin is versatile and comfortable. Driver and passenger comfort is enhanced by a spacious interior with ample leg room. Premium cloth and leather upholstery combine with available power and heated seats for optimum riding comfort. For maximized cargo-loading capability, both the passenger and 60/40 split rear seats fold flat to allow for multiple seating and load-floor configurations, and up to 54.9 cubic feet of cargo space. In addition to this, available roof rails allow for additional cargo and gear to be loaded on top of the vehicle.
