Engines and Towing Capacity
The new Jeep Cherokee is available with several different engines, each suited to different needs.
The base 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque is a strong, competent engine for daily driving. The low-end torque gives it a towing capacity of up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. The nine-speed automatic transmission with rear-axle disconnect feature ensure that this engine has maximum thrust in all-wheel drive.
Those looking for more grunt will find it with the 3.2-liter V-6 that produces 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque. This engine also uses the nine-speed automatic transmission and automatic stop-start for improved economy. With this configuration, the Jeep Cherokee can confidently tow up to 4,500 pounds.
For more performance, there’s also a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, paired to the same nine-speed automatic transmission. This engine is designed for energetic acceleration and exceptional off-road capability, as well as a 4,000-pound towing capacity.
Jeep Cherokee Towing Features
The Jeep Cherokee has the best towing figures in the compact SUV class, as well as some additional features that make towing safer and more convenient.
The Trailer Tow Group comes with heavy-duty engine cooling for the 3.2-liter and 2.0-liter engines to help them handle the stress and wear and tear of regular towing, along with an auxiliary transmission oil cooler to help the transmission perform at its peak and stay at the proper temperature. A Class III hitch receiver, 4-and-7-pin wiring harnesses and a spare tire are also included.
There are many advanced safety features available for the Jeep Cherokee as well. While these features are helpful in any driving situation, many of them have additional applications in towing. Blind-spot monitors and rear cross-path detection can help you stay aware of what’s happening around your vehicle and the attached trailer, which lowers the risk of a collision. Lane-departure warning, rain-sensing wipers and automatic high beams are some other features that improve awareness and visibility, regardless of whether you’re pulling a trailer or not.
