Compact crossovers are notoriously great vehicles when it comes to traversing the concrete jungle. On paved roads and in cities they do very well for themselves. Their mixture of SUV like size and car-like maneuverability make them a great choice. However, here in Bemidji and the surrounding International Falls, MN area we know that we need a vehicle that can handle more than a paved road. That’s where the 2018 Jeep® Cherokee comes in.

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee is the smaller counterpart to the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee and both offer something that other SUVs or compact crossovers don’t: off-road ability. This makes the Jeep Cherokee one of our favorites here at Bemidji Chrysler Center because it means that it can handle winter weather. From icy roads to large snow banks, the Jeep Cherokee can handle it all while keeping you warm and cozy inside its plush cabin.

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee gets a few notable upgrades for this current model year. Among them are a new base trim which is the Jeep Cherokee Latitude, standard 17-inch wheels, roof rails, and high-intensity-discharge (HID) headlamps. The all-new Tech Connect package includes the Amazon Alexa voice-recognition software which you can use for various vehicle functions including remote stop/start.

Additionally, an optional V6 engine combined with an off-road focused all-wheel-drive system means that you’ll always have enough power and traction for even the worst winter conditions. In terms of looks, the 2018 Jeep Cherokee is elegant and sleek. It features the new front-end styling that keeps the iconic seven-slotted grill while adding more angles for a leaner, more aerodynamic appearance.
