actively monitoring for wheel slippage, making it ideal for just about any road or weather-related encounter.

- Available exclusively on the Trailhawk trim, Jeep Active Drive Lock 4×4 system gives you a rear locker and low range for the ultimate in low-speed grip, plus a special Rock Mode you can toggle on the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System for rocky terrain and a neutral setting for flat towing behind RVs.

Available when you choose the Uconnect® 4C NAV with its 8.4-inch touch screen display, Off-Road Pages displays key off-roading stats, from wheel articulation and suspension height to transmission temperatures, vehicle GPS coordinates, and much more.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Safety always comes first, so it’s no surprise that the 2021 Jeep Cherokee comes packed with a long list of advanced safety and driver assistance technologies to complement its high-strength steel frame and robust array of driver and passenger airbags. Electronic Stability Control comes standard, giving you greater peace of mind over your Cherokee’s handling under adverse road and weather conditions. Other standard safety features include the LaneSense Lane Departure Warning System and Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking, which uses its radar sensors to help warn you of potential front-end collisions and even automatically brakes to a complete stop if needed.
The 2021 Jeep Cherokee also goes the extra mile with its optional driver assistance features, including rain-sensing wipers that adapt from light sprinkles to torrential downpours, headlights that activate automatically depending on lighting conditions, and available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, which lets you maintain preset following distances and brings your Cherokee to a stop to avoid collisions.

You’ll also have available ParkSense® Rear Park Assist with Stop and available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist with Full Stop to lean on, as both features use advanced rear sensors to detect obstacles and even apply the brakes when needed.
