2021 Jeep Cherokee in Griffin, GAWhen you're searching for a family-friendly SUV that prioritizes capability, the 2021 Jeep® Cherokee is a winner. This five-seat SUV has an impressive lineup of engines and 4x4 systems that provide different levels of capability for adventures in and around Griffin, Georgia. Here's a closer look at what to expect from the Jeep® Cherokee's capabilities.

How much power does the Jeep® Cherokee have?

There are three different engine options for the 2021 Jeep® Cherokee. The base powertrain is a peppy 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 engine. This standard choice delivers 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque, all while managing an efficient 31 mpg on the highway.*

Next in line is the available 2.0-liter turbo engine. This upgrade option increases the power and capability of the 2021 Jeep® Cherokee without sacrificing fuel economy. Like the 2.4-liter engine, the 2.0-liter turbo engine delivers up to 31 mpg on the highway, and 23 mpg in the city.* However, it increases the horsepower and torque significantly, boasting 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. 

The most capable engine in the Jeep® Cherokee lineup is the available 3.2-liter Pentastar® V6 with engine stop/start technology. Although its 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque is not far from the output of the turbo engine, the Pentastar® V6 offers the best towing capacity in its class.

How much can the Jeep® Cherokee tow?

All three Jeep® Cherokee engines offer a generous towing capacity for drivers. The standard 2.4-liter can tow up to 2,000 pounds, while the 2.0-liter turbo engine doubles that for a 4,000-pound towing capacity. For the best-in-class towing, choose the Pentastar® V6, which tows up to 4,500 pounds. 

How do the Jeep® Cherokee's 4x4 systems work?

Whether you want adventure or just extra control, there's a Jeep® Cherokee 4x4 system to meet your requirements. The Active Drive 4x4 system turns on four-wheel-drive when conditions are slick. Active Drive II is great for outdoor play, and features a two-speed power transfer unit torque management. Active Drive Lock is available on the rugged Trailhawk® and delivers the most impressive off-roading of all.
