Under the Cherokee's Hood
A 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is standard on many 2017 Jeep Cherokees. This engine is rated at 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard with this engine, as well as with the available 3.2-liter V6 that creates 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. Both engines offer the choice of either front- or four-wheel drive. However, if you get the Trailhawk model then you will automatically get four-wheel drive. Two different four-wheel drive systems are available: Active Drive I and Active Drive II. In Edmunds testing a Cherokee Limited with the V6 engine and Active Drive I could accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour (mph) in 7.4 seconds. An available towing package can let you haul up to 4,500 pounds behind the great SUV.
