2016 Jeep Cherokee Buyer's Guide

The Jeep Cherokee is a 5 passenger mid-size crossover SUV, though unlike most crossovers the Jeep offers models that aren’t out of place when the pavement ends (though they also offer FWD only models for those who don’t plan on trips into the woods). First launched as a 2014 model, the Cherokee receives a few minor updates for 2016, but keeps its divisive styling (though it does look a bit better in the flesh than it does in photos). Cargo capacity is decent, but not great, thanks to the four-wheel drive system that forces a raised cargo floor. The Limited models are perfect for those who want luxury, while the Trailhawk models are Trail Rated and ready for some serious off-road duty.

What makes it move?

Engine choices for the Jeep Cherokee include a 2.4 liter MultiAir 4-cylinder that makes 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque and a 3.2 liter V6 that generates 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque; both engines are backed by a 9-speed automatic gearbox. Front wheel drive models with the 4-cylinder are rated at 22 miles per gallon city, 31 highway, for 31 mpg combined, while all-wheel drive models with the same engine are rated at 21 mpg city, 28 highway and 24 mpg combined. Active Drive II models are a bit less efficient, while the V6 nearly matches (and sometimes exceeds) the 4-cylinders’ ratings.

Why buy the 2016 Jeep Cherokee?

Every Cherokee comes with the Uconnect system (with a 5.0 inch screen or 8.4 inch screen). 4x4 models receive the Jeep Selec-Terrain System with five settings (Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud, and Rock) that change 12 vehicle settings including the throttle control, transmission shifting, transfer case, traction control, and electronic stability control. Trailhawk models come with skid plates for the front suspension, fuel tank, and underbody as well as hill descent control and front and rear tow hooks. The available CommandView Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof helps get all passengers into the adventure. Towing capacity for the V6 model with the Trailer Tow Group is 4,500 lbs, other models can only pull 2,000 lbs.
