Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk V-6 4×4 2014 Review
Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk V-6 4×4 2014 Review. In Jeep’s point of view, was to release the new Cherokee in four strengths: Sport, Latitude, Limited, and the Trailhawk model pictured here.
Eager to prove the new car-based Cherokee is no pansy, Jeep took us to Wrangler territory and sent us over Hell’s Revenge and Fins and Things, a pair of challenging slickrock trails in Utah’s canyon country near Moab. As the off-road-focused model of the bunch, the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk V-6 4×4 2014 lifts by one inch the Cherokee’s all-independent suspension of front struts and a four-link rear, for a total of 8.7 inches of clearance. Unique front and rear fascias offer improved approach and departure angles of 30 and 32 degrees, respectively, and the three bright-red tow hooks (two front, one rear) are the real deal, with each rated for 8250 pounds.
Making its debut in the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk V-6 4×4 2014 is an optional 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6, which shares virtually everything with its 3.6-liter sibling save for bore size. With 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque, it’s got a hearty leg up on the four-cylinder units found in the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, leaving only the 2.0-liter EcoBoost Ford Escape in the ballpark with its 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. It’s quiet and gutsy, and, paired with the new Chrysler/ZF nine-speed automatic transmission, the combo feels like it has as much oomph as anything in the segment.
Even as this new Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk V-6 4×4 , highly styled crossover offers far more on-road refinement than Jeep’s Cherokee of yore, it surely provides a better, if software-based, off-road package, too. That might not be important to today’s crossover shopper, but it’s awfully important to Jeep, absolutely to Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk V-6 4×4 2014.
