2020 Jeep Cherokee Off-Road Features

If you live among landscapes that are anything like what we have in the La Crosse, WI area, you’ll know that going off the beaten path can be a lot of fun. Whether it is taking a trip into the wilderness for some camping or traversing the rustic roads to get to your favorite fishing spot, it is important that you are driving a vehicle that can handle such conditions. The Jeep Cherokee is particularly good at that, so take a look at some of the most notable 2020 Jeep Cherokee off-road features that can help you tackle the tough terrain. 

4×4 Handling 

The 2020 Jeep Cherokee is offered with available 4×4 iterations, which helps to make sure every wheel has enough power and grip to handle the gravelly off-roads or bumpy fields you might be driving across. The Trail Rated® Jeep Cherokee gets its 4×4 capabilities tested in five major areas: traction, water fording, maneuverability, articulation, and ground clearance.

The Jeep Cherokee 4×4 system makes sure that each tire has just the right amount of traction needed at the right time. The Cherokee was also built with high air intakes and unique water sealing to allow for some water fording if need be. The steering and suspension system provides exceptional maneuverability and articulation, which is especially useful when you encounter bigger obstacles on your off-road treks. The Cherokee was also built with a high enough ground clearance to make all of this off-roading easier. If the vehicle couldn’t handle these primary facets of off-roading, then it wouldn’t get Trail Rated®.  

Other ways the Jeep Cherokee handles rocky roads 

On 4×4 models, available Jeep Active Drive will automatically engage the four-wheel-drive mode based on some of the more unpredictable roads out there, so even if you don’t make the switch yourself, the Cherokee has you covered. Jeep Active Drive Lock, which is available on the Trailhawk model, includes a rear locker for more traction when you are driving off the beaten path and includes Rock Mode on the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System. 

If you like to seek adventures in the wilderness and on the road less traveled, the 2020 Jeep Cherokee may be right up your alley. Contact us if you are in the La Crosse and Viroqua areas today if this sounds like your kind of Jeep.
