2016 Jeep Cherokee in actionThe 2016 Cherokee, available now to car buyers in Melville and Indian Head, is available with two engine options and plenty of off-road capability to boost your adventures and tackle the most rugged journey. Take an in-depth look at the 2016 Jeep Cherokee engines in this handy guide to the efficiency and power that each powertrain can muster.

Quality Powertrains

The 2016 Jeep Cherokee was built tough and sports two engine options that provide ample power to bring the beast to life. Each engine is available on all Jeep Cherokee variants, giving Indian Head drivers plenty of options.

The 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir I-4, the smaller of the two options, was designed with fuel economy and strong performance in mind. It can pump out 184 hp and is coupled with a class exclusive 9-speed automatic transmission to harness all that power and give the driver the great handling and responsiveness that Jeep is known for. The Tigershark I-4 can also tow 907 kg, making towing a boat or jet skis a snap. To further improve overall efficiency, 4×4 models feature a rear axle disconnect, a first in the industry. Depending on model options, the Tigershark engine has been rated at up to 10.9 L/100 km in the city and 7.7 L/100 km on the highway, making it an attractive model for Melville drivers who want power and added fuel economy.

The next option, a 3.2L Pentastar VVT V6 can put out an impressive 271 hp, and is complemented by the same 9-speed automatic transmission and stop/start technology for dependable power when you need it most. 2016 Jeep Cherokee drivers who choose this option can take advantage of the best in class 2,041-kg towing capacity.

Go Off-Road

Built on a solid foundation of high-strength lightweight steel and aluminum front and rear suspensions, the Jeep Cherokee can deliver a responsive and comfortable off-road experience. The 2016 Cherokee features 3 4×4 systems to improve your off-road experience:

  • Jeep Active Drive I – Ideal for all climates, this system includes a rear axle disconnect that only engages 4×4 when needed.
  • Jeep Active Drive II – Adds a low range for rock climbing and a neutral mode for activities like towing large vehicles.
  • Jeep Active Drive Lock – In extreme conditions, this system includes a locking rear differential for low-speed power.
