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 offers 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 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 Trailhawk® 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.
The 2019 Jeep® Cherokee features impressive capability with three innovative available 4x4 systems designed to help you adventure boldly and freely.
Master ice, slush, and heavy snowfall without losing your cool. Jeep® Cherokee vehicles equipped with an available 4x4 system feature a Jeep® Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System with Snow Mode. Snow Mode minimizes slippage and oversteer and enhances stability, preventing wheel spin during winter conditions.

The Cherokee offers a choice of three engines—the 2.4L Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine, the available 3.2L Pentastar® V6 engine and an available 2.0L Turbo engine for outstanding efficiency and an impressive power boost.

The capable Jeep® Cherokee can tow up to 4,500 pounds so you can trailer all kinds of gear. With standard Trailer Sway Damping, you’re ready to tow and go. If your Cherokee is equipped with the available Jeep® Active Drive II 4x4 System or available Jeep Active Drive Lock 4x4 System, you can add the available Flat Tow Wiring Kit to tow your vehicle behind an RV.
ON-ROAD PERFORMANCE AND SUSPENSION
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.
TRAIL-READY WITH TRAILHAWK®
The Jeep® Cherokee Trailhawk® was engineered and equipped for limitless exploring and discovery. Powerful capability, Trail Rated® stamina and off-road-ready features make any adventure in the Trailhawk possible.
Tow hooks are an essential off-road accessory for helping out other less-capable vehicles. Trailhawk® is equipped with two standard tow hooks in the front and one in the rear.
A standard 1-inch suspension lift gives you room to crawl over large rocks, logs and more. Standard skid plates provide protection for the underside of the vehicle so you can tackle intimidating obstacles without worrying about underbody damage.
51.2:1 CRAWL RATIO
Jeep® Cherokee Trailhawk® gets an impressive 51.2:1 crawl ratio when equipped with the 2.0L Turbo I4 engine for better control when off-roading and navigating over obstacles.
