The 2017 Jeep® Cherokee delivers signature style and powerful capability

Jeep® drivers are a demanding bunch. They want signature design, advanced technology, innovative engineering and a ride that’s equal parts thrilling, safe and capable. Thankfully the 2017 Jeep® Cherokee delivers all that drivers crave.

The 2017 Jeep® Cherokee comes in seven trims: Overland, Trailhawk® High Altitude Limited Edition, Limited, Latitude, Sport Altitude Limited Edition and Sport.

Iconic design

There is no mistaking a Jeep®. The distinctive seven-slot grille catches the eye while the sculpted, aerodynamic exterior is accented with bold details like trapezoidal wheel arches and Cherokee bezels. The Cherokee’s LED daytime running lamps contribute nicely to the recognizable look of Jeep®. Drivers can also opt for the available high-intensity discharge headlamps for brighter night driving. Dual chrome exhaust tips with the available 3.2-liter Pentastar® V6 engine make quite the exit.

The stylish design of the 2017 Jeep® Cherokee spills over into the interior, which is filled with smart details, luxurious materials and spacious comfort. And the interior’s good looks are more than just eye candy—the Cherokee offers drivers a standard 60/40 split-folding rear seat with reclining and fore-aft adjustment capability and an available fold-flat front passenger seat that conforms to whatever and whomever you need to move. The available CommandView® dual-pane power sunroof opens up for an expansive view. Available heated front seats and steering wheel plus available all-weather floor mats up the ante on comfort and function.

Integrated technology

The 2017 Jeep® Cherokee offers several levels of Uconnect® Systems to keep drivers connected to their compatible mobile devices, entertained by music and on the right path due to advanced and intuitive navigation technology.

The available Uconnect® Access allows drivers to monitor their vehicle even when it is out of sight, while the available Bluetooth® connectivity is ideal for the modern driver. The 2017 Jeep® Cherokee also features an advanced sound system with the available Alpine® Premium Audio System that is decked out with a 12-channel, 506-watt amplifier that funnels incredible sound through nine speakers.

Drivers will have all the information they need with the available customizable seven-inch Driver Information Digital Cluster Display with steering-wheel mounted controls.

Power player

The 2017 Jeep® Cherokee offers not one, but two out-of-this-world power sources for drivers—the available 3.2-liter Pentastar® V6 engine that generates 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque and the 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine that generates 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped, the Jeep® Cherokee fueled by the 3.2-liter Pentastar® V6 engine can tow up to 4,500 pounds.

Maximum safety

It’s no surprise that the 2017 Jeep® Cherokee is outfitted with impressive safety technologies, but even the most loyal Jeep® consumer will be blown away by the Cherokee’s 70 available active and passive safety and security features. These include the available LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist, Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking and Blind Spot Monitoring system.

Parking has never been easier thanks to thoughtful and ingenious features like the available ParkView® Rear Back Up Camera; available ParkSense® Front and Rear Park Assist System, which pulls information from four sensors throughout the vehicle; and the available Parallel and Perpendicular Park Assist system, which eliminates the stress and minimizes potential impacts of parking. Plus, drivers can call for help when they need it the most with the available 9-1-1 call button.

The 2017 Jeep® Cherokee is engineered to handle tough terrain, versatile enough to fit your needs, powerful enough to make driving fun again and built with superior safety technologies.
