When people think about off-road, people think of Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. Producing vehicles that are rugged and sturdy but also able to offer up smooth, comfortable driving experiences, Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has set the bar pretty high. In keeping with that gold standard, the 2018 Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Cherokee is top of its class in every department. If you want something that can seamlessly switch to city driving to off-road and back again, the new Cherokee is right for you.
This crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV) is a perfect blend between urban versatility and rural stability. It is great for the everyday commutes and chores of Bismarck families, but also excels at exploring other parts of Bismarck ND during vacations or road trips. With the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System, you get four modes to choose from in order to get the best control in different terrain: Auto, Sand/Mud, Sport, and Snow. The Cherokee’s innovative Active Drive 4x4 system works in tandem with the Brake Lock Differential in order to further improve control – regardless of exterior weather or road conditions.
There are two engine choices for both 4x2 and 4x4 models. The 2.4 liter (L) Tigershark Multiair 2 engine will get you 184 horsepower (hp) and 171 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque, while the 3.2 L Pentastar V6 will put out 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. The Cherokee is no slouch in the towing department - the 2.4 L engine (with a nine-speed automatic transmission) can tow up to 2,000 pounds (lbs). The 3.2 L engine (nine-speed automatic), equipped with the Trailer Tow or Trailer Tow Prep Groups, is capable of towing up to 4,500 lbs. If you want to haul your bike/ATV/boat out for a nice weekend away from the city, the new Cherokee is ready and able to do the job.
Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram has always made safety a top priority in their vehicles, and the Cherokee is a sign of that. A body composed of advanced high-strength steel minimizes collision damage and enhances occupant protection. There are 10 airbags in total, including passenger and driver front knee airbags and full length side curtain airbags. In regard to safety tech, this SUV has some of the best available, including the Blind Spot Monitoring system, which makes use of dual radar sensors to detect if another vehicle enters your blind spots. If so, visual and audio warnings will alert you so that you can take the necessary precautions. Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking also uses radar sensor to detect if you are approaching another vehicle too fast and will alert you via a noise. If you are not applying the necessary amount of brake pressure, Advanced Brake Assist will add additional pressure in order to prevent impact. LaneSense Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist alerts you through video and auditory cues in the event that you accidentally drift from your lane and, if you don’t respond, will autonomously correct your course. The Parkview Rear Backup Camera helps you back into those tight spots by providing you with a clear image and guide lines.
