New 2016 Jeep Cherokee at Hoffman Automotive Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram in Hagerstown, MD

Jeeps have rolled off of assembly lines for over seventy years, and have experienced a number of renovations throughout their time to appeal to prospective buyers' desires and needs. The Jeep Cherokee was named Four Wheeler Magazine's "2015 Four Wheeler of the Year," and throughout that year over a couple million Cherokees were bought in North America's car dealerships. Allow me to introduce you to the 2016 Jeep Cherokee, a very tough SUV that is just right for offering plenty of space for passengers and their belongings due to how it's a sport utility vehicle (SUV).

How the SUV Runs

The Cherokee possesses a nine-speed automatic transmission, making it the one kind of SUV with that. You may use real-axle disconnect if you do not have 4x4 capability, because rear-axle disconnect causes little energy to escape from the SUV, resulting in nice fuel efficiency. Going 500 miles on a single tank of gas is possible because the tank holds over 15 gallons of gas. A Cherokee may provide you with 31 miles per gallon (mpg) highway. A 3.2-liter V6 engine is available and comes with a stop-start feature for every 2016 Cherokee Sport. An alternative engine you may have is the 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark, which may give you up to 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of twist. The SUV provides a 56:1-crawl ratio with low-range traction. The Cherokee will tow up to 4,500 pounds worth of equipment. Cherokees present prospective customers with different available four-wheel drive (4WD) systems: a power transfer system-equipped Active Drive I, Active Drive II for good climbing capability, and Active Drive Lock for off-road capability. This SUV has nice on-road capability, especially with Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus that might allow someone to travel straight on highways and similar roads without steering. There is a Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control system with five configurations: Auto, Rock, Sport, Snow and Sand/Mud. Essentially, the 2016 Cherokee efficiently gets people to destinations!


The SUV offers an 8.7 inch ground clearance and ten paint colors. A liftgate will help you transport rear cargo. As indicated above, the SUV has Do-Not Disturb, which could be used with Cherokee's Uconnect screen to send automatic replies to texters and people calling you to voicemail. Do-Not-Disturb is there for people who would prefer to ignore their phones when driving, and would want callers and texters to know they're not available. The touchscreen's Drag and Drop menu allows a driver to customize their SUV's touch screen to have access to features used frequently, examples of which might be Yelp, Travel Link or cooled or heated seating. There is a voice command feature, Siri Eyes Free, that together with Apple iPhone 4s or newer iPhone models, works to allow drivers to send texts and make calls, provides drivers with specific turning directions, and lets drivers select songs for listening pleasure, amongst other things when having hands on their wheel and keeping eyes on the road. Rear passengers will be able to use convenient rear beverage holders.
