The 2016 Jeep Cherokee
provides a choice of three innovative 4x4 systems for best-in-class 4x4
capability in all weather conditions. The Jeep Cherokee is the first
mid-size SUV to feature rear-axle disconnect, resulting in reduced
energy loss when 4x4 capability isn't needed - improving fuel
efficiency. The rear-axle disconnect seamlessly switches between two-
and four-wheel drive for full-time torque management and does not
require input from the driver.
The Jeep Cherokee offers best-in-class V-6 towing capability of 4,500 pounds.
Available on the Cherokee Sport, Latitude and Limited models, Jeep Active Drive I features a single power transfer unit (PTU), which is fully automatic and delivers seamless operation in and out of four-wheel drive at any speed. The system does not require any driver intervention or feedback, delivers yaw correction during dynamic events and improves both understeer and oversteer conditions.
Available on the Cherokee Latitude and Limited models, Jeep Active Drive II includes a two-speed PTU with torque management and low range. The 4-Low mode locks the front and rear drive shafts for low-speed power or towing. Low range provides a 2.92:1 gear reduction. The gear reduction allows for enhanced climbing ability as well outstanding crawl ratios for severe off-road conditions. The 2016 Jeep Cherokee with Jeep Active Drive II gives the off-road adventurer a ride height that is increased by an inch, and a crawl ratio of 56:1 when powered by the 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark I-4 engine and 47.8:1 when powered by the new 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 engine - up to a 90-percent improvement versus the outgoing model.
Jeep Active Drive Lock includes all the features of Jeep Active Drive II and adds a locking rear differential for superior low-speed power for severe off-road conditions. Jeep Active Drive Lock is standard on all Trailhawk models .All 4x4 systems feature the Jeep brand's renowned Selec-Terrain traction control system, which allows the driver to choose the on- and off-road setting for optimum performance. Up to five customized settings are offered: Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud and Rock. Through the use of algorithms that enable unsurpassed control and capability, Selec-Terrain electronically coordinates and optimizes up to 12 systems on any terrain providing enhanced vehicle control including: drivetrain control module, electronic brake controller, electronic stability control (ESC), transmission controller, powertrain controller and Selec-Speed Control (Hill-ascent and Hill-descent Control).
