The 2017 Jeep Cherokee is a rarity, combining true family-friendly comfort with an action-packed performance. The Cherokee seats get a big gold star for comfort. Up front, wide, nicely bolstered cushioning and adjustable lumbar support are just what you need to battle rush-hour traffic in complete comfort. The second-row reclining seatbacks are easy to operate. They let passengers stretch their legs a little further – an advantage for tall passengers or anyone who plans to spend a few hours on the road.
The 2017 Jeep Cherokee doesn’t slack when it comes to in-cabin technology, either. It’s tough to find fault with the Uconnect infotainment system, which includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen with intuitive menus and large buttons that don’t require extra effort to operate. Voice controls are equally useful, when you can’t take your eyes from the road or your hands off the wheel. The Cherokee cabin also includes some innovative comfort features, including ventilated front seats that keep you feeling crisp and cool as you make your way to your destination.
These days, most crossover SUVs have switched to all-wheel drive technology, which gives you impressive traction over icy roads but not a whole lot of trail action. The 2017 Jeep Cherokee stands out in this segment with true off-road capabilities, thanks to its Active Drive II four-wheel-drive system. It includes low-range gearing, so making your way through territory consisting of everything from sand to snow to oversized rocks is a done deal. The Cherokee includes other performance features to help you take advantage of the trail, including hill ascent and descent control which increase precision on steep grades. When you need that extra layer of precision – say, over an especially rocky overpass – put the Cherokee’s locking rear differential to good use. Add the tow package to tow up to 4,500 pounds of fun to your favorite adventure spot.
When you’re making your way through mountain territory, you’ll be content knowing that the 2017 Jeep Cherokee puts safety first. In crash tests, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Cherokee its top score of “Good.” The forward collision mitigation system with automatic emergency braking earned a rare “Superior” from the IIHS. This technology detects an oncoming accident and acts swiftly to help you avoid or mitigate damages – a feature that’s simply priceless. The Cherokee also offers blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. When you’re cruising a crowded highway, the system gives you a heads-up about any vehicles that might be lurking in your blind spot, effectively helping you avoid an avoidable accident.
The Cherokee Overland pairs wild adventure with high-end polish and comfort. Exclusive features, unique body-color exterior trim, give the Overland some on-road swag. In the dead of summer, the Overland’s ventilated front seats feel like an absolute dream. You’ll never dread leaving your Jeep in a hot parking lot, because it’s so quick to cool down. The Overland also includes a nine-speaker audio system with a booming subwoofer, creating the basis for a high-quality highway singalong.
The 2017 Jeep Cherokee is more than a go-anywhere SUV – it’s got enough comfort and modern technology features to please even the most demanding family of five. Its four-wheel-drive performance takes you where other family-friendly crossover SUVs simply can’t, with plenty of power to tow, while giving you roomy accommodations for up to five passengers.
