2017 Jeep Cherokee at Reedman Toll Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM Springfield

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee is a little bit of a dream to drive or ride in, and a nice change in a world of bumpy riding trail-oriented vehicles. The midsize, 5-passenger Cherokee has two new Overland Packages becoming available later in 2017, both standard with an Alpine audio system and (HID) headlamps (minus the Sport model), floor mats, and a wood-trimmed steering wheel made by Zebrano. For 2017, standard on the Trailhawk model, you will find Keyless Enter 'n Go, a power liftgate, a garage door opener, a power 8-way driver seat, Nappa-leather heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, a remote start system, and a lot more.

Under the Cherokee's Hood

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee has as standard a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that goes fast enough at 184 horsepower and grinds out 171 pound-feet of torque. Available (on most models) is a 3.2-liter V6 engine that ratchets up to 271-horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive (both engines) is up to you, depending on what you need on any model besides the Trailhawk, as that is only 4WD. A 9-speed automatic is standard in the 2017 Cherokee. There are 3 four-wheel drive system choices to put into your Jeep: the Active Drive I system, the Active Drive II system, or the Jeep Active Drive Lock. A towing package (available) lets V6 models get up to a 4,500-pound towing capacity. A FWD Cherokee with the 2.4-liter engine is EPA-rated at 25 mpg combined (21 city/30 highway). The front-wheel drive V6 engine maintains a finding of 24 mpg combined (21 city/29 highway).

Design of Jeep Cherokee

The crossover 2017 Jeep Cherokee brings 5 trim levels to the forefront and is a 5-passenger SUV. Those models are the Trailhawk, Latitude, Limited, Overland, and the Sport. There are three Special Edition models of the 2017 Jeep Cherokee: the High Altitude, the more basic Altitude, and then the 75th Anniversary Edition (made through Dec. 2016). The Trailhawk has hill ascent and descent control, a locking rear differential, a huge driver information display with color graphics, skid plates, all-terrain tires, tow hooks, wider 17-inch wheels, increased ground clearance, satellite radio and Jeep's 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen interface. The Sport starts things off in the right direction with 17-inch steel wheels, remote keyless entry, Bluetooth and auxiliary audio input, an SD card reader, sliding and reclining rear seats with 60/40-split folding seatbacks, and much more. The Latitude brings the attitude with light alloy wheels, and also adds automatic xenon headlights, a rearview camera, roof rails, fog-lights, LED interior lighting, and a 115-volt outlet. The Limited model has standard alloy wheels that measure in at 18 inches, keyless entry and ignition, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Overland gets a nine-speaker audio system with a subwoofer, a power-adjustable passenger seat (with 4-way power lumbar), acoustic enhancements on both the front windows and the windshield, and a power liftgate!

Any and all of these models, in their various configurations, have standard front- and rear-seat side airbags, stability and traction control, side curtain airbags and front knee airbags, and even antilock disc brakes. A rearview camera is standard (available on Sport). The Latitude trim gets itself access to the 'Safety/Convenience Group' package. The Overland, Limited, and the Trailhawk models are able to unlock the available 'Technology Group' package with its automatic high beams, a forward collision warning and mitigation system, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, a lane departure warning system, rear parking sensors and an automated parking system. All Cherokees with the 8.4-inch touchscreen can employ the Uconnect Access system to enable automatic crash notification, emergency on-demand roadside assistance, stolen vehicle assistance, and remote door unlocking. The IIHS says that the 2017 Cherokee scored at 'Superior' for its optional forward collision mitigation system. In government crash tests, the Cherokee got an overall rating of 4 out of 5 potential stars, with 4 stars for total front-impact protection and 5 stars for total side-impact protection. All in all, a very good rating for a very good vehicle!
