The Cherokee has a nine-speed automatic transmission, and is the only kind of SUV with that. If you don’t have 4×4 capability with the Cherokee, you could use rear-axle disconnect to make for great fuel efficiency, as not much energy will escape from the SUV when using it. A Cherokee might give you 31 miles per gallon (mpg) highway. Traveling 500 miles on one tank of fuel is possible, as the tank holds over 15 gallons of the substance that will get you to your destination. A 3.2-liter V-6 engine is available and coupled with a stop-start feature for each 2016 Cherokee Sport. Another engine you might have is the 2.4-liter I-5 MultiAir2 Tigershark, which can give you a maximum of 171 lb-ft of torque and 184 horsepower. Cherokees present prospective buyers with different available four-wheel drive (4WD) units: Active Drive I with a power transfer unit, Active Drive II for good climbing ability, and Active Drive Lock for nice off-road ability. The SUV provides a 56:1-crawl ratio with low-range traction. The vehicle will tow up to 4,500 pounds (lbs) worth of equipment behind it. This SUV has nice on-road capability, particularly with Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus that may allow somebody to travel straight on interstates and similar roads without needing to steer. There is a Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control system with five different configurations: Auto, Rock, Sand/Mud, Sport and Snow. Essentially, the 2016 Cherokee transports occupants to their destinations efficiently!
Exterior & Interior
The SUV offers ten exterior colors and an 8.7-inch ground clearance.
