Under the Cherokee's Hood

The fact that it has this will make for a smooth trip to your destination! A V-6 3.2-liter engine is available for every 2016 Cherokee Sport, and comes with a stop-start feature. Another engine you might have for the Cherokee is the 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark, which may provide you with up to 171 lb-ft of twist and 184 horsepower. These SUVs present prospective buyers with multiple available four-wheel drive (4WD) systems: Active Drive I with a power transfer unit, Active Drive II to get nice climbing capability, and Active Drive Lock to have nice off-road capability.

This SUV offers an 8.7-inch ground clearance and ten colors. Back passengers can use rear beverage holders. Up to five people total can comfortably fit in this SUV. The touchscreen's Drag and Drop menu allows a driver to personalize the SUV's touchscreen for getting access to features used most often, examples of which may be Travel Link, Yelp or cooled or heated seating.
