2018 Jeep Cherokee at Lakeland Chrysler Jeep Dodge

The 5-seat 2018 Jeep Cherokee redefines the mid-size SUV segment, delivering legendary Jeep 4x4 capability. For 2018, Jeep Cherokee stages all models as possible to obtain in either 4x2 or 4x4 except the Trailhawk-- which is intentionally 4x4 by default. People are certainly interested in the 2018 Cherokee because of its exceptional proficiency off of the main roads. On that theme, there are three options for 4-wheel-drive systems, depending on model choice: Jeep Active Drive I, II, and Lock. On top of those, the Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control system is available with up to 5-mode pre-sets (Sport, Auto, Snow, 'Sand/Mud', and Rock). All of these systems, when properly installed, gain for the Cherokee a best-in-class V-6 towing capability of 4,500 pounds as well as a 56:1 crawl ratio for low-range traction! Let's go over this vehicle's more defined specifications and its features down below!
