It's a new, sunny day for the 2021 Jeep Cherokee. The excitement's building for Jeep lovers throughout Ithaca, Binghamton, and Cortland, NY, who can expect the Cherokee's contemporary style with some throwback flair and more standard safety features. Is it better than the rest? That's for you to decide when you visit the Maguire Family of Dealerships.

Jeep Cherokee Interior Space and Comfort

Let's look at what you can get for the inside of your Cherokee. From the available soft premium leather-trimmed bucket seats that can come with heat or ventilation to the available CommandView® Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof, this Jeep can be a cabin of comfort. Complete your cabin furnishings with an optional leather steering wheel with heat and a leather-wrapped shift knob to match.

Connect with Jeep Cherokee Technology

Keep connected with the standard Uconnect® touchscreen that spans 7 inches across. The available Uconnect® 4C NAV, with its 8.4-inch touchscreen, can also be added to your Jeep. These screens enable you to choose streamed apps from your smartphone with help from Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ integration. Use your voice to make your requests-including when you want to hear something different pumping through the available Alpine® Premium Audio System.

Jeep Cherokee Safety Systems

In the latest model of the Cherokee, these four safety systems now come standard. They include:

  • Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path Detection
  • Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking
  • Electronic Stability Control
  • LaneSense® Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist

You're protected on all sides and get a visual and audible nudge if you drift out of your lane. If you want to relax a little and not fight the traffic, the optional Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go will allow you to preset a distance from the cars ahead of you while keeping up with the flow.

Jeep Cherokee Performance/Engine Skills

There are plenty of reasons to select the Jeep Cherokee, one major one being the effective performance you can achieve. Two engines give you the power. The 2.4L I-4 engine issues 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the 3.2L V-6 engine issues 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. Each comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission, with some trims featuring FWD or 4X4 drivetrains.

These differing drivetrains mean varying fuel efficiencies. For instance, the smaller engine charts an EPA-estimated 22 MPG City/31 MPG Highway with FWD, and with the 4X4, it offers an EPA-estimated 21 MPG City/29 MPG Highway. The larger engine charts an EPA-estimated 20 MPG City/29 MPG Highway with FWD, and offers an EPA-estimated 19 MPG City/27 MPG Highway with the 4X4.

If you're feeling the Trailhawk, it offers an EPA-estimated 18 MPG City/24 MPG Highway.

For towing purposes, your Cherokee can haul up to 2,000 pounds, with a payload of 1,000 pounds. You can opt for the available Class III receiver and Trailer Tow Wiring Harness, too, for towing ease.
