New 2016 Jeep Cherokee at Fitzgerald Auto Mall in Lexington Park, MD

Jeeps have rolled off of assembly lines for over seventy years, and have experienced a number of renovations throughout their time to appeal to potential buyers' desires and needs. Allow me to introduce you to the 2016 Jeep Cherokee, a very durable SUV that is just right for offering plenty of room for passengers and their belongings due to how it's a sport utility vehicle (SUV). The Cherokee was named Four Wheeler Magazine's "2015 Four Wheeler of the Year," and throughout 2014 over a couple million Cherokees were bought in North America's car dealerships. The 2016 Cherokee comes out of FCA's Toledo Assembly Plant in Toledo, Ohio, and is due to arrive at dealerships by 2015's third quarter. There are new features for 2016's model: Siri Eyes Free, Do-Not Disturb and Drag and Drop are new technological features for Cherokees with touchscreens. Rhino Clear Coat and Light Brownstone paint colors, partially-renovated steering column tilt, a new instrument cluster and somewhat-changed front seats are new features for 2016, too. 2016's models include Limited, Sport, Latitude and the Trail-Rated Trailhawk.

How the Cherokee Runs

The Cherokee has a nine-speed automatic transmission, making it the one type of SUV with that. You may use real-axle disconnect if you do not have 4x4 capability, as rear-axle disconnect causes little energy to escape from the SUV, resulting in great fuel efficiency. Going 500 miles on one tank of gas is possible because the tank holds over 15 gallons of gas. A Cherokee may give you 31 miles per gallon (mpg) highway. A 3.2-liter V-6 engine is available and comes with a stop-start feature for every 2016 Cherokee Sport. One engine you may also have is the 2.4-liter I-5 MultiAir2 Tigershark, which may give you up to 184 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of twist. The SUV provides a 56:1-crawl ratio with low-range traction. The Cherokee will tow up to 4,500 pounds worth of equipment behind it. Cherokees present prospective customers with different available four-wheel drive (4WD) systems: Active Drive I with a power transfer system, Active Drive II for good climbing capability, and Active Drive Lock for off-road ability. There is a Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control unit with five different configurations: Auto, Rock, Sport, Sand/Mud and Snow. The SUV has nice on-road capability, especially with Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus that may allow someone to travel straight on highways and similar roads without steering. Essentially, the 2016 Cherokee gets people to destinations efficiently!


The SUV offers an 8.7 inch ground clearance and ten exterior colors. A liftgate will help you transport rear cargo. As mentioned above, the SUV has Do-Not Disturb, which could be used with Cherokee's Uconnect screen to send automatic replies to texters and calls to voicemail. Do-Not-Disturb is there for those who would prefer to ignore their phones when driving, and would want callers and texters to know they are not available. The touchscreen has a Drag and Drop menu to allow a driver to customize their SUV's touch screen to have access to features used often, examples of which might be Yelp, Travel Link or cooled or heated seating. There is a voice command feature, Siri Eyes Free, that coupled with Apple iPhone 4s or newer iPhone models, works to allow drivers to send texts and make calls, provides people with very specific directions, and lets drivers select songs for listening pleasure, amongst other things when having hands on the wheel and keeping eyes on the road ahead. Rear passengers will be able to use convenient rear beverage holders.

Are there steering-wheel mounted audio controls?

Are there delay-off headlights?

Do you offer online service appointment scheduling?

Safety & Final Notes

Blind-spot monitoring will look for "blind" spots that you will not be able to see when looking ahead from your driver's seat. A backup camera will help you leave parking spaces or driveways.
