What are the Jeep Cherokee Engine Options?
For the 2022 model year, the Jeep Cherokee features five trim levels, and three powertrain options. The standard engine is a 2.4-liter inline-4, which delivers 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. This is the engine that comes standard on the Altitude, Latitude LUX, and X trim levels, and comes with standard front-wheel drive. Once you reach the more athletic Trailhawk trim level, you’ll find a robust 3.2-liter V6 rated at 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with all-wheel drive featuring the Active Drive II 4X4 system, and the Trailhawk also has a 4,500-pound maximum towing capacity. The third available engine option is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4, which kicks out 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. All three of these engines pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission, and although the first two trim levels come with standard front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive is available across the board. In terms of capability, the Cherokee offers the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System with multiple drive modes to toggle through depending on the current road conditions. The Trailhawk also comes with hill-descent control, steel underbody skid plates, and off-road suspension to help you stay in control while you’re out on the trails!
What are the New Features of the Jeep Cherokee?
As we mentioned above, the 2022 Jeep Cherokee features five trim levels in its lineup. New for 2022, Jeep is offering an air filtration system for the Cherokee, which can remove airborne particles like dirt and dust, leaving the cabin feeling fresh! The Cherokee also provides several different methods for keeping all five passengers at a comfortable temperature. First is dual-zone automatic climate control, which allows both the front and rear to control their own temperature. The Cherokee also offers a heated steering wheel for a comfortable grip, and heated and ventilated seats so that you can stay comfortable no matter what the temperature is outside! When the rear seats are in use, the Cherokee’s rear cargo area offers you over 28 cubic feet of space. This increases to a whopping 54.7 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded flat! The second-row bench has a 60/40 split, so you can fold down one half at a time, and get the space you need. You can even enjoy the available dual-pane panoramic sunroof when you opt for the Sun and Sound Group!
What Tech Features does the Cherokee Offer?
Part of what makes the 2022 Jeep Cherokee feel so sleek and modern is its tech features! The Cherokee comes equipped with the Uconnect 4 infotainment system, with either a 7-inch or 8.4-inch touchscreen! With this system, you can enjoy Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as integrated navigation with the available Uconnect 4C NAV. One handy feature is the available SOS button, located on the lower corner of your rearview mirror. In case of an emergency, you can simply press the button and automatically call first responders and roadside assistance to come and help you out! When your Cherokee is equipped with Jeep Skill for Amazon Alexa, you’ll be able to access your vehicle’s functions using hands-free voice commands! This can really come in handy for searching a destination on your navigation device, because you can simply say the address out loud, and keep your attention on the road. The Cherokee also has a robust standard safety package, with a wealth of advanced safety features. These include LaneSense lane departure warning, electronic stability control, blind-spot monitoring, and much more!
