You typically find one of two engines underneath the hood of a used Jeep Cherokee. The first is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that delivers 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque.

The Sport, Latitude models will come with Jeep Active Drive I, a system that requires no input from the driver and comes with the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System.
