New 2017 Jeep Cherokee at Stones Town & Country Motors for Rexburg, ID

The new 2017 Jeep Cherokee will undoubtedly impress customers. Previous Cherokee years have earned acclaim for a sophisticated on-road performance, innovative technology, and ability to go off-road, and these remain strong characteristics of the 2017 model. The excellent powertrain options have been created to maximize fuel economy and power, and the available Uconnect system is both the easiest to use and most innovative system on the market. For 2017, the Cherokee has seen some minor yet exciting updates. For example, this is the first full model year that Jeep has offered the high-end Overland trim on the Cherokee. In addition, every trim with the exception of the Sport will feature xenon headlights.

The Cherokee's Great Design

The five-passenger Cherokee has earned praise for its gorgeous design, which is both sporty and sophisticated inside and out. There are five main trim levels offered, and the standard trim is called the Sport. It features exterior highlights like LED running lights and taillights, 17-inch steel wheels, and the convenience of remote keyless entry. The interior is comfortable for the driver and features cruise control, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and technology like a six-speaker audio system, 5-inch Uconnect touchscreen, an SD card reader, and an auxiliary audio input. The unique Trailhawk model features off-road-oriented suspension tuning, increased ground clearance, skid plates, a locking rear differential, and tow hooks, not to mention leather upholstery and the 8.4-inch Uconnect system. The available Overland trim is unbelievably sophisticated, with a sound-deadening windshield, wood steering-wheel inserts, ventilated front seats, and upgraded leather upholstery.

Under the Hood of the Cherokee

The standard powertrain configuration of the Cherokee features a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, which will produce 171 lb-ft of torque and 184 horsepower. Additionally, Jeep offers a 3.2-liter V6 with the Cherokee, and it can deliver 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. Coming linked to both of the engines is a nine-speed automatic transmission, and drivers will have the choice between three different drive systems. The first drive system comes standard, and it is a front-wheel drive option. Two of the optional drive systems are four-wheel drive, and they have been engineered for all-weather performance, and can even go off-road. However, the off-road Trailhawk trim will also receive its own four-wheel drive system that has a locking rear differential and low-range gearing for an incredible performance when going off the pavement.
