2017 Jeep Cherokee at Monroeville Chrysler Jeep for Monroeville, PA

The Jeep Cherokee returns for the 2017 model year with some equipment revisions such as standard xenon headlights on every trim but the base Sport.  The Cherokee carries on the Jeep legacy of having exceptional off-road ability. At the same time, its on-road driving dynamics are impressive enough to be an every day driver for work or family, as well as a perfect vehicle for long road trips.  For 2017 the Cherokee comes in five trim levels: Sport, Latitude, Trailhawk, Limited and Overland. Read on to learn more about the 2017 Jeep Cherokee.

2017 Cherokee Power and Handling

The standard engine for the Cherokee is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. Also available is a 3.2-liter V6 engine that bumps the numbers up to 271-horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. You can opt for 4WD on all trim levels (with 2WD coming standard), but the off-road oriented Trailhawk comes only with 4WD. A towing package is available as an add-on; it enables V6 versions to get 4,500-pounds of towing capacity.  To increase off-road ability you can get Jeep's Active Drive II system. This technology features low-range gearing and a locking rear differential along with an additional Rock mode for the Selec-Terrain dial.

Design of Jeep Cherokee

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee trim levels will offer a varying level of features, but even the base Sport is well appointed.  Standard goodies include keyless entry, an SD card reader, Bluetooth and auxiliary audio input, sliding and reclining rear seats with 60/40-split folding seatbacks, 17-inch steel wheels, and more. The Trailhawk is geared toward the off-road driver and has hill ascent and descent control, a locking rear differential, tow hooks, a heated steering wheel, power liftgate, Keyless Enter 'n Go, a remote start system, heated and ventilated front seats covered in Nappa leather, a power eight-way driver seat, a universal garage door opener, wider wheels, and increased ground clearance. The Latitude adds automatic xenon headlights, light alloy wheels, LED interior lighting, roof rails, and fog-lights. The Overland takes things to the top of the line with a leather-wrapped instrument panel, power front driver and passenger seats, a new Jeep steering wheel with Zebrano high-gloss wood trim, standard Alpine premium audio system, Bluetooth, Navigation, HD Radio, SiriusXM Travel Link, a standard memory driver's seat, and Berber floor mats.

What type of headlamps are in this vehicle?

New for 2017, high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps are standard on all trim levels (excluding Sport).

Why are there 3 four-wheel drive systems?

The Freedom Drive II is more for actual off-roading, steeper inclines and log/boulder traversing, for instance. Jeep Freedom Drive I 4x4 is an available full-time, active 4-wheel-drive system with a lock mode that gets drivers a stronger ability to handle rough weather and low-traction conditions, especially on general, everyday roads. And only the Trailhawk can add the Jeep Active Drive Lock system, which adds to the Freedom Drive II with a mechanical rear-axle lock and is Jeep "Trail-Rated" so you can drive off-road with more confidence!

Conclusions

The 2017 Cherokee offers a long list of standard, as well as available safety features. These include front and rear-seat side airbags, side curtain airbags and front knee airbags, anti-lock disc brakes, and stability and traction control.  A standard rearview camera occurs on all except Sport, but it's available as a choice to add on. The Latitude model can add on a 'Safety/Convenience Group' package. The Trailhawk, Limited, and the Overland models allow access to the 'Technology Group' package with its blind-spot monitoring, a forward collision warning and mitigation system, rear parking sensors, auto high beams, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warnings, and an automated system for parking. The IIHS says that the 2017 Cherokee gets a 'Superior' score for its forward collision mitigation system (available). In government crash tests, the Cherokee got an overall rating of 4 out of 5 potential stars, with 5 stars for total side-impact protection and 4 stars for total front-impact protection.
