2017 Jeep Cherokee Review

When drivers in Richmond, New Baltimore, and the Detroit area are looking to escape the city and enjoy some off-road adventures, they’re going to need an exceptionally capable vehicle.

At Dick Huvaere’s Richmond Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram (CDJR), we believe the 2017 Jeep Cherokee fits the bill. And to show you, we’ve put together this detailed review. You’ll soon have no doubt just what this SUV can do.

Off-Road & Towing Capabilities

More often than not, Jeep is synonymous with off-roading. That’s because these vehicles have been specifically designed to veer off the beaten path. And the 2017 Jeep Cherokee is no different.

When equipped with Jeep Active Drive I, the Cherokee can navigate almost any road surface safely and with efficiency. This is in large part due to the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System, which alters gears according to your chosen terrain.

Additional stability and traction control features have been added to the SUV, as well. That way, no matter what kind of weather you’re driving through, your vehicle will have excellent grip.

That stability will even hold true when you’re hauling up to 4,500 pounds of cargo. Thanks to a rigid suspension and Trailer Sway Control, your vehicle can easily handle all that weight.

2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee: Interior

If you intend on spending a lot of time in your vehicle, then comfort is an absolute must. Luckily, the Jeep Cherokee is as spacious as it is strong. Passengers will have a total of 103.4 cubic feet to move around in, with 39.4 inches of headroom and 41.1 inches of legroom for drivers.

Cargo space is at an all-time high, too. Behind the first row, 54.9 cubic feet are available. And with the Jeep Cargo Management System, you’ll have plenty of extra nooks and crannies for storage. This way, you can stow plenty of gear inside the SUV, too.

In addition to ample space, front-sitting passengers will be able to relax in their low-backed cloth bucket seats. These both include 6-way manual adjustments, so you can configure seating according to your tastes.

Exceptional Jeep Performance

In addition to handling and comfort, power is still a cornerstone of the Jeep Cherokee. With an available 3.2L V6 engine under the hood, your vehicle can generate up to 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque.

Of course, efficiency is important, too. Your V6 is bolstered by Stop-Start Technology, which maximizes efficiency. This way, your SUV can still maintain 28 highway MPG and 21 city MPG.1

Several additional features have been added to aid in continued high performance. Heavy-duty engine cooling and an auxiliary transmission oil cooler will keep your V6 running at peak performance over the years.
