Jeep Cherokee Calgary
Powertrain, Performance and Fuel Economy
As standard, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee comes with a 2.4L 4-cylinder gasoline engine producing 180 horsepower and 171lb-ft of torque. While this is ample power for everyday driving duties, things start to get a little more interesting with the two higher engine options.
First, a 2.0L I4 turbo engine ramps up the power to 270hp and 295lb-ft, while a 3.2L V6 mill offers 271hp and 239lb-ft of torque. The turbo option in particular makes the Cherokee a prime candidate for adding off-road adventuring to its more workaday family duties.
All engine choices are paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, with a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive. For improved handling under changing conditions, the optional Selec-Terrain traction control system has five customisable modes, including automatic, snow, sport, and off-road.
The FWD 2.4L option boasts fuel economy figures of 10.8L / 100km in the city and 7.6L / 100km on the highway, while the 4WD V6 option comes in at a thirstier 12.9L / 100km (city) and 9.9L / 100km (highway).
Interior Comforts and Technology
The Cherokee offers all the interior comforts you'd expect from a modern five-seater SUV. The infotainment system is controlled by a 7-inch touchscreen, with Bluetooth connectivity and smartphone integration through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Higher-level options include a larger 8.4" screen, additional USB ports, and an expanded audio system with satellite radio to add to the standard AM/FM option.
As far as interior space is concerned, the Cherokee seats five passengers in comfort, with 104cm of leg room in the front row and 102cm in the rear. There's up to 1557L of cargo space with the rear seats folded, falling to 708L with all five passengers on board.
The entry level Cherokee is equipped with standard safety features including a back-up camera, tire pressure monitors, and a parking aid system. Moving up the trim levels adds active safety systems including blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, lane departure warnings, and a forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking.
