New 2016 Jeep Cherokee at Monroeville Chrysler Jeep for Pittsburgh, PA
The 2016 Jeep Cherokee crossover SUV boasts genuine off-road credentials worthy of the Jeep name. Even in its most formidable trim level - that being the rugged Trailhawk - the Cherokee surrenders nothing in the way of comfort or handling. When the need arises, however, the Cherokee's low-range mode and three different 4-wheel-drive systems permit everything from light off-roading to rock crawling through passes unnavigable by most Cherokee rivals. Yet, for all its rough and tough bravado, the Cherokee's interior is a luxurious oasis of modern design and technology. Toss in the available V6 engine and standard 9-speed transmission, and you get a compact-crossover SUV unlike any other in the segment.
Under the Cherokee's Hood
Powered by a standard four-cylinder engine, reviewers say the Cherokee can struggle to get up to speed. For peppier acceleration, they recommend the available V6 engine, though some note that it takes a toll on fuel economy. The base 2016 Cherokee gets up to 22/31 mpg city/highway, which is close to average for the class. Equipped with a V6 engine, the Cherokee earns 21/29 mpg city/highway. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard, and most auto writers say it shifts quickly and smoothly. Reviewers appreciate the Jeep Cherokee's plush highway ride and think it absorbs road imperfections well. However, they agree that its soft ride quality contributes to its heavy handling and note that some rivals feel more composed around turns. Although they find its steering to be accurate, reviewers would like more feedback from it through the steering wheel. The Cherokee earns praise for its extensive list of available off-road features, including three four-wheel drive systems. A Selec-Terrain system also comes standard with all four-wheel drive models and allows drivers to select between five settings to maximize traction. Test drivers agree that apart from the Jeep Wrangler, the Cherokee is one of the most capable off-road SUVs in the class.
Design of Jeep Cherokee
From design's standpoint, 2016 Jeep Cherokee doesn't stray too far away from the brand's strategy. While it's slightly unconventional for a compact crossover, people used to Jeep's hallmark cues won't find anything out of the ordinary with it. Except, perhaps, for those thin headlights which really poke the eyes. Rest of it is more or less standard. Frontal fascia features trademark bar grille as seen in larger Grand Cherokee, while bumper sticks out a little bit. Squared off fenders and neatly creased midsection panels make Cherokee's profile, while roofline extends a great deal and only finishes after a sharp decline. Tailgate, at the end, offers tail-lights straight at window's edge, together with another sturdy bumper.
