2022 Jeep Cherokee Brings V6 Power to Vegreville

May 23,2022

When it comes to performance, active families want an SUV that can comfortably seat passengers and haul a trailer or boat with ease. With the 2022 Cherokee from St. Paul Dodge, Alberta drivers get the versatility they crave. Compared to the 2022 Mazda CX-5, the Jeep offers an available V6 engine, bringing superior under-hood power and strong towing abilities. The 2022 Cherokee Sport comes standard with a 2.4L Tigershark engine and a nine-speed automatic transmission that achieves 180 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque with a maximum towing capacity of 907 kg (2,000 lbs). However, stepping up to the North trim equips the 2022 Cherokee with a 271-hp 3.2L Pentastar V6 engine with 239 lb-ft of torque and a nine-speed automatic transmission. With this block, the Jeep SUV can tow 2,041 kg (4,500 lbs) to confidently pull a camper or watercraft. The 2022 Mazda CX-5, on the other hand, only offers a 2.5L four-cylinder engine that generates 187 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the Cherokee's available 3.2L V6, the CX-5 delivers a much milder hauling experience with a maximum 907 kg (2,000 lbs) towing capacity. Ready to try the new Cherokee in person?
