I was mistaken. You can get the Active Drive II transmission on a Cherokee, with the standard 4 cylinder, although reports from owners of that combination report very anemic performance.

Also with the V6, you also get "Active Shutters" and Stop/Start technology.

Stop/Start, will stop the engine when you stop at a traffic light, and start it back up when you take your foot off the brake and hit the accelerator. This "feature" can be overridden by pushing a button on the dash, but only until the next time you start the car. At that point it reverts to Stop/Start process on.

Would like to be able to disable this feature, until I decide to turn it back on.

On the plus side, Cherokee owners are saying the optional V6 has plenty of power.

Since my honda was totaled, I need to get a replacement car, and the 2015 Cherokee is on the top of the list.

Love the cherokee...

Our 93 has 440K miles on second motor...

Past company car was 2014 with heated seats and v6 thst ran like striped a%# ape.

But transfer cases not same as old with computer controlled systems.

Be sure dealer produces factory document specific to your model that indicates 4 down towing with process that you can live with.

Better yet have DEALER install package...they own warranty that way.
