Final Thoughts on the 2018 Jeep Cherokee

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee re-vamps the mid-size SUV market, bringing storied Jeep 4x4 capability. People are absolutely enthusiastic about the 2018 Cherokee because of its remarkable surety on any road condition. That's made possible by access to three options for 4WD systems, contingent on model selection: Jeep Active Drive I, Jeep Active Drive II, and Jeep Active Drive Lock. There is an 'off-­road' suspension that is accessed via the Active Drive II system, or, the Cherokee will be a very-capable 'normal-duty' in the suspension. The Lock system is for the Trailhawk model specifically. Remember too that the Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control system is an option with up to five-mode settings (Auto, Sport, Snow, 'Sand/Mud', and Rock). All of these systems combine to achieve a best-in-class V-6 towing amount of 4,500-lbs as well as a 56:1 crawl ratio for low-range traction! For 2018, Jeep Cherokee comes in either a 4x2 or 4x4 configuration, except the Trailhawk-- which is 4x4-only (as that is its central focus). Yeah, it's definitely time to look into this reliable powerhouse, come on over to Legacy Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM as soon as you can to get further information on it. We'll see you here!
