Drive the Exciting New Jeep Cherokee Around New Orleans and Beyond

Jeep has designed a crossover with superior off-road capabilities and impressive towing power. The lineage of the new Cherokee appeals to those who love nature. Many Cherokee lovers view driving on the blacktop secondary to the ruggedness that off-road driving provides outside New Orleans. The Trailhawk trim is an aesthetic masterpiece to satisfy nature lovers and has Jeep fans excited about its drivetrain and equipment.

Each model of the new Cherokee offers several engine options that include a V6 with a four-cylinder option. The fleet of the new Cherokee offers an all-wheel drive. Off-road enthusiasts around Metairie will enjoy its impressive performance enhancements, including its safety features.


The new Jeep Cherokee is a subcompact SUV that adds slender LED headlamps and a slotted grille. It offers thick tires and a low bumper with red tow hooks. Roof rails come standard on many models, along with 17-inch alloy wheels. And when driving near Kenner, the all-terrain tires, offered in the Trailhawk model, will grip the terrain to improve the off-road experience. The Limited trim offers a panoramic sunroof that offers more natural light and fresh air to the cabin than the moonroof. Higher trims provide dark gray or black styling accents, a hands-free liftgate,  and a Class III receiver hitch.


The new Cherokee has a seating capacity of five. The small SUV comes with a seven-inch infotainment touchscreen that mates with the Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration. The six-speaker audio system provides clear and crisp sound for you to enjoy with your Satellite radio music and entertainment choices around Slidell.

The Latitude model offers a power-adjustable front seat. Additionally, the front seats offer heating capabilities to keep your warm during the chilly mornings around Westwego. Also, the leather-wrapped steering wheel has heating technology. The Latitude Lux offers a power-adjustable front passenger seat. The SUV also offers two USB ports to the rear of the Cherokee.

The Limited offers driver-seated memory settings along with dual-zone climate control. An auto-dimming rearview mirror is available that automatically adjusts the bright lights reflected in the mirror to reduce temporary blindness and driver fatigue. The Elite package only offered with the Limited trim offers an integrated navigation system to improve your journeys around New Orleans.


The base model Cherokee comes loaded with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The 2.4-liter engine produces 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. The Latitude Lux models have the 3.2-liter V6 engine as standard equipment. The 3.2-liter engine yields 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque. However, an optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is available that nets 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. All three engines copulate with the nine-speed automatic transmission. When towing cargo around Metairie and New Orleans, feel confident with the Cherokee's 4,500 pounds of maximum towing capability.
