2018 Jeep Cherokee - Janesville, WI

The Performance Traits of the 2018 Jeep Cherokee Make it a Great Janesville Buy

Janesville rightly earned the moniker of Wisconsin's Park Place or City of Parks thanks to the town's incredible 2,590-acre park system. The green spaces within the city's limits include greenbelts, golf courses, community parks, swimming pools, cross-country ski trails, boat launches, and oh so much more. Simply put, Janesville is a place for the outdoors-lover, the thrill-seeker, the adventurer -- a place where the 2018 Jeep Cherokee is a natural fit.

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is a compact SUV that serves nicely as a rugged, dirt trail adventure vehicle as well as family hauler and comfortable commuter. It's a handsome vehicle that's well-suited to the extreme weather and road conditions frequently found in this part of Wisconsin. But don't just take our word for it, check out the following key performance traits that make this year's Cherokee such a strong buy for Janesville residents:

2018 Jeep Cherokee Performance Traits Janesville SUV Buyers Will Love

Acceleration & Power

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee comes standard with a 2.4 four-cylinder that delivers a respectable 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. Also available is a bit beefier 3.2-liter V6 engine that boosts those numbers up to 271 horsepower and 239 lb-feet of torque. Both of these engine options come standard with a nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Both engines likewise feel solid on both neighborhood and highway roads, offering drivers more than enough confidence when revving up to pass.

Looking for a vehicle with some power capabilities? Every model of the 2018 Jeep Cherokee comes equipped to tow, but the amount changes depending upon your engine and trim. Both engines also offer the ability to tow your favorite toys at amounts upwards of 2,000 pounds on the four-cylinder and 4,500 pounds on the V6 -- which is more than enough to take the pop-up camper or your favorite state campground or the jon boat to the lake. 

Handling & Steering

However, if what you're looking to do with your next vehicle is have some fun on the back roads and feel ultra-confident come winter, then consider upgrading to the all-wheel-drive Jeep Cherokee. The 4x4 version of the Cherokee simply outshines its class competitors when it comes to off-road capabilities. It's a fun vehicle to drive and, with the model's advanced traction control, one of the safer options when it comes to tackling the bad weather and road conditions common in this part of the country.

Overall, the Jeep Cherokee offers exceptional steering and handling control. Drivers will enjoy a steering system that is well-weighted and responds predictably both on pavement and dirt roads. This is not an oversensitive vehicle that jolts with every twitch of the wheel.

When it comes to suspension systems, again Janesville buyers have some options to choose from. The standard suspension is great for concrete driving and easily absorbs those bumps and imperfections you are likely to encounter in your day-to-day driving. But if what you're looking for a superior off-road experience, then ask about the 2018 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk trim. This trim model includes a special off-road-oriented suspension tuning with a locking rear differential and hill ascent and descent control for the best in trail driving performance.
