Under the Cherokee's Hood
Did you know that the 2016 Jeep Cherokee is quite unique because of its standard nine-speed automatic transmission? Its nine-speed automatic transmission makes overdrive and auto-manual available. The fact that the Cherokee has a nine-speed automatic will make for a smooth trip to your destination! A V-6 3.2-liter engine is available for every 2016 Cherokee Sport, and comes with a stop-start feature. Another engine you may have for the Cherokee is the 2.4-liter MultiAir2 Tigershark, which may provide you with a maximum of 171 lb-ft of twist and 184 horsepower. A Jeep Selec-Terrain traction control system is available with five configurations: Auto, Sport, Rock, Sand/Mud and Snow (when the need presents itself!). These SUVs present prospective buyers with multiple available four-wheel drive (4WD) systems: Active Drive I with its power transfer system, Active Drive II to get nice climbing capability, and Active Drive Lock to have good off-road capability. Essentially, each 2016 Cherokee efficiently transports people to destinations!
This SUV offers an 8.7-inch ground clearance and ten colors. Up to five people can comfortably fit in this SUV. Back passengers can use rear beverage holders. The touchscreen's Drag and Drop menu allows the driver to personalize the SUV's touchscreen for getting access to features used most frequently, examples of which might be Travel Link, Yelp or cooled or heated seating. As indicated earlier, the SUV has Do-Not Disturb, which might be used with Cherokee's Uconnect screen to send automatic text message replies to those texting you and callers to voicemail. Those who want to ignore their cellphones while driving will be happy to have Do-Not Disturb. Siri Eyes Free--a voice command feature--together with Apple iPhone 4s and newer iPhone models, works to allow drivers to send text messages and do other things while keeping eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
Who made the nine-speed automatic transmission?
