2018 Jeep Cherokee Performance Specs

When you choose the 2018 Jeep Cherokee, you have the option of two engines. The standard 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir® 2 I4 engine generates 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. This engine will get you an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 21 MPG city and 28 MPG highway.

While the standard engine is optimized for efficiency, an upgrade to the 3.2L Pentastar® V6 engine will help you reach this SUV’s maximum towing capacity of 4,500 pounds. It does this by producing a powerful output of 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines are partnered with a nine-speed automatic transmission for a clean acceleration.

Cherokee Handling Capabilities

As you head for the hills, you’re going to want a healthy level of handling to help you conquer the tough terrain ahead. That’s something you’ll find the Cherokee delivers.

With three 4-wheel drive (4WD) systems available, the Jeep Cherokee is fully optimized for off-road adventuring.

The Jeep Active Drive I, Jeep Active Drive II, and Trail Rated® Jeep Active Drive Lock 4WD systems each provide their own level of drive modes and torque management for improved traction control and optimized performance.

The Cherokee also includes the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System with each 4WD system, which includes up to five drive modes:

  • Auto
  • Snow
  • Sport
  • Sand/Mud
  • Rock

Rock mode is available with the Jeep Active Drive Lock system and improves the low capacity in the Jeep Cherokee to help you overcome even the harshest terrain.

Safety Technology

When you head back on-road and merge with the rest of the driving public, you can feel safe knowing that the Jeep Cherokee is equipped with available safety technology that has your back, side, and front.

As you cruise down the highway, the LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist will ensure you stay on your intended path of travel by issuing a warning or activating autonomous steering if it catches you drifting.

Meanwhile, Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go watches out ahead of you and automatically adjusts your cruising speed when approaching a slower-moving vehicle up ahead.

Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-Path Detection watches your back, and your sides, as well, by providing an auditory warning if another vehicle enters your side or rear blind spots.
