What kind of power and handling will I get from the 2018 Jeep Cherokee?

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is offered with two capable engines. The base powertrain includes a 2.4-liter four-cylinder Tigershark MultiAir 2 engine, which produces 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. The 2.4L comes standard on all 2018 Cherokees, and offers impressive fuel efficiency. With the base engine, the Cherokee earns up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway! If you're looking for a little extra engine power, however, the Cherokee features an optional upgrade to a beefier 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 with engine start/stop technology. The V6 puts out 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque, and maximizes the Cherokee's tow capacity. Properly equipped, a Cherokee with the V6 engine can tow up to 4,500 pounds. With the exception of the off-road-oriented Trailhawk trim, all 2018 Cherokees come standard with front-wheel-drive, with the option to upgrade to one of the three available all-wheel-drive systems. The one constant in the Cherokee powertrain is a nine-speed automatic transmission.

What trim levels and features are offered for the 2018 Cherokee?

The 2018 Cherokee is offered in five main trim levels. The base trim is the Latitude, which is outfitted with standard features such as Bluetooth connectivity, xenon headlights, a rearview camera, 60/40 split folding rear seat, and a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment interface. Next up is the Latitude Plus, which has all of the Latitude's standard features as well as a larger, 8.4-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, keyless ignition and entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and ambient interior lighting. Next up is the Limited, which features leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped shift knob, smartphone integration, dual-zone automatic climate control, and some advanced safety features like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic detection. The highest trim is the Overland, outfitted with many ultra-luxurious amenities such as upgraded leather upholstery, real wood interior details, noise-reducing glass, a navigation system, and more.The 2018 Cherokee is also offered in a Trailhawk trim, which is designed for optimum off-road performance.

What makes the Trailhawk trim different?

The Trailhawk is a relatively new trim that Jeep is offering on a few of their SUVs, including the Cherokee, Grand Cherokee and Compass. The 2018 Cherokee Trailhawk features a Jeep Active Drive Lock 4x4 system with Selec-Speed Crawl Control, an additional inch of ground clearance (compared to other Cherokees), underbody skid plates, and red tow hooks. A matte-black hood accent sets the Trailhawk's exterior apart from the other trims, and its off-road-friendly features include hill ascent and descent control and a locking rear differential. On the inside, the Cherokee Trailhawk is similarly equipped to the Limited, and features cloth and leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, and Jeep's largest 8.4-inch touchscreen.
