Off-Road Performance

The 2021 Jeep Cherokee has a 4×4 drive system that’s controlled by the Active Drive technology. Using sensors to monitor road conditions, this advanced drivetrain automatically engages all wheels when necessary. Paired with a two-speed unit that transfers and manages torque, the Active Drive II 4×4 system is also optional for this Trail Rated model. In some situations, this sophisticated driveline locks the front and rear driveshafts to optimize traction. Optional on the 2021 Nissan Rogue, the Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is no match for Jeep’s patented Active Drive hardware. Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat Fort Walton Beach is a dealership that also invites you to explore the 2021 Cherokee’s Active Drive Lock technology. Exclusively engineered for the sporty Trailhawk model, this drivetrain comes with a rear locker and the Rock Mode. When enjoying our online test drive in this Trail Rated SUV, you can select other settings from the Selec-Terrain Traction Management System. Besides boosting off-road handling, this technology has the Neutral Mode for towing. The 2021 Rogue offers five options from the Drive Modes, but the Cherokee is still the clear winner in off-road performance. Additionally, this robust model has much better articulation, water fording and ground clearance than the Nissan competitor.
