The 2016 Jeep Cherokee delivers the on-road driving dynamics, features, fuel economy and 4x4 capability that mid-size SUV customers desire.
New for the 2016 model year are Rhino Clear Coat and Light Brownstone exterior colors and driver comfort enhancements to the steering column tilt, instrument cluster and front seats. Also for 2016 models equipped with the 8.4-inch touchscreen, Uconnect is introducing new features that include the all-new Drag and Drop menu bar, Siri Eyes Free and Do-Not Disturb.
The Jeep Cherokee is the first midsize SUV to feature rear-axle disconnect, resulting in reduced energy loss when 4x4 capability isn't needed -- improving fuel efficiency. The rear-axle disconnect seamlessly switches between two- and four-wheel drive for full-time torque management and does not require input from the driver. Cherokee offers best-in-class V-6 towing capability of 4,500 pounds.
All 4x4 systems feature the Jeep brand's renowned Selec-Terrain traction control system, which allows the driver to choose the on- and off-road setting for optimum performance. Up to five customized settings are offered: Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud and Rock.
The 2016 Jeep Cherokee boasts numbers that make the difference customers care about: fuel economy of up to 31 mpg, more than 70 safety and security features, numerous industry and segment "firsts," a nine-speed automatic transmission, a 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 engine with 271 horsepower and 239 lb.-ft. of torque, a 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark I-4 engine with 184 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque, nearly 500 miles driving range on a tank of gasoline and three new, innovative 4x4 systems that deliver legendary Jeep capability including crawl ratios of 56:1 with the 2.4-liter engine and 47.8:1 with the 3.2-liter engine.
