2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Poughkeepsie NY
The Jeep Cherokee, little brother to the award-winning Grand Cherokee, has been impressing our customers since its return to the Hudson Valley in 2013 because of its capability, affordability and feature lineup.

There are so many options to choose from for this compact crossover SUV that you might not know where to start. That’s why we’re here to help by breaking down all of the available amenities for the Cherokee, which is offered in 10 eye-popping colors.

3 4x4 System Options

Though there are 4x2 models available, many (if not all) of the Jeep Cherokees that come to our Poughkeepsie dealership location are equipped with a 4x4 system to handle the harsh weather we get in the winter and changing conditions from pavement to grassy or wooded areas.

There are 3 available 4x4 systems that each give you different benefits:

  • Jeep Active Drive I: monitors wheel slippage for rain, mud, heavy snow & inconsistent gravel to automatically apply the right amount of torque for maximum control
  • Jeep Active Drive II: adds a low range & neutral mode to help for extra low-speed traction driving & flat towing behind an RV
  • Jeep Active Drive Lock: Trailhawk-exclusive 4x4 system that includes a mechanical rear axle lock & Selec-Terrain Traction Management Rock mode

No matter which 4x4 system you choose for your Cherokee, you’ll be able to handle any adventure whether you hit the open road or take it off road.
