TRAIL RATED® TOUGH
The Jeep® Cherokee Trailhawk® proudly wears the Trail Rated® badge—signifying its ability to perform well under various off-road conditions. It carries on the Jeep Brand tradition of having legendary traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation and water fording abilities.
For off-roading, traction is key. You want every wheel working to drive the vehicle forward. Cherokee features three available Jeep® Active Drive 4x4 systems that help to ensure the right tire has traction when it’s needed.
HIGH AND DRY
Don’t let a little H20 get in your way. Your Trail Rated® Jeep® Cherokee Trailhawk features additional electrical and body sealing along with a high air intake to help you to navigate streams and flooded underpasses that stop others cold
Jeep® Cherokee gives you the maneuverability to choose to steer around or crawl over obstacles like rocks or logs.
Good articulation allows the wheels to travel or flex. The better they flex, the better they can maintain contact with terrain to provide traction. Take a look under the Cherokee and you’ll find a unibody construction with independent suspension at all four corners.
UP AND OVER
Good ground clearance helps you pass over obstacles like rocks or logs. It’s measured at three points: approach angle, breakover angle and departure angle.
TRAILHAWK® TAKES ON THE TRAILS
The Trail Rated® Trailhawk® has a powerful appearance and the capability to back it up. Standard skid plates, aluminum wheels and additional capability features look great and give you the freedom to Go Anywhere. Do Anything.®
The 2018 Jeep® Cherokee features impressive capability with three innovative available 4x4 systems designed to help you adventure boldly and freely.
JEEP® ACTIVE DRIVE I
The available Jeep® Active Drive I 4x4 System features a rear axle disconnect feature that only engages when necessary for improved efficiency. A Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System gives you all-weather capability in four modes: Auto, Snow, Sport and Sand/Mud. A standard Brake Lock Differential works with the advanced 4x4 system to provide outstanding capability for anything Mother Nature sends your way.
JEEP® ACTIVE DRIVE II
The available Jeep® Active Drive II 4x4 System includes all the features of the Jeep Active Drive I 4x4 System and adds a low range and neutral mode for added capability. The 4WD LOW mode is great for extra low-speed traction and neutral mode enables available flat towing behind an RV.
JEEP® ACTIVE DRIVE LOCK
The Jeep® Active Drive Lock 4x4 System is standard equipment on the Cherokee Trailhawk®. It has all the features of the Jeep Active Drive II 4x4 System but also includes a mechanical rear axle lock and Selec-Terrain® Traction Management ROCK mode.
Front and rear independent suspensions provide outstanding on-road driving dynamics and a fun-to-drive experience. The Cherokee body structure is made of high-strength steel which provides excellent torsional stiffness for a strong, lightweight vehicle architecture. It all adds up to superb handling and an exceptionally quiet cabin.
EFFICIENCY IS STANDARD
