Distinctive Features of the Jeep Cherokee

The IIHS also points out that the “Cherokee gets Good scores in most tests, but merits only a Marginal in the tough small-overlap front-impact test. That keeps it from any Top Safety Pick awards.”

Despite the presence of a few aspects that the jeep needs to improve on in order to keep at par with their competitors, there are a few distinct features that intrigue prospective buyers. The jeep is motorised by a comprehensive V-6 engine. It is an automatic nine-speed with a roof that is panoramic. It has a dual-zone control for climate that is automatic.

The jeep has an audio system of about 506-watt with screens that are free of lag and a smart connection option. There are also data services present in the car that can be obtained for free every month.

Pros of the jeep

The jeep has a guaranteed dependability both on and off the road due to its solid handling and ride. Another plus is the presence of a system that facilitates the hanging of shopping bags. The jeep can also be remotely started and stopped by the use of software that recognises your voice.

It consists of an array of finishes that are made of materials that are high quality. The buttons and switches operate as desired and the noises in the power train are properly filtered. These features give the jeep a posh and luxurious look as well as feel.

Cons of the jeep

In as much as the jeep is trying to keep up with its competitors it is still ragging behind in some aspects that its competitors are making a priority such as cargo space and fuel consumption. The jeep consumes large volumes of fuel, it has a constrained space to put your cargo.

The design also makes the space narrower such that the drivers that are huge will be in contact with the door. Drivers who are tall might also have a tough time driving due to the steering wheel design that tilts it away at the top. The head rest on the seats is also positioned too much in the front direction which makes them uncomfortable.
