Here's some clips my brother and I off-roading in a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk at Rocks and Valleys off road course. This Jeep proved to super capable with its low range, locking differential, and many off road modes.

      Nope they had both a 2.4L 4 cylinder and a PENTASTAR 3.2l v6 in all models including the trailhawk. Easiest way to tell, single vs dual exhaust tips.
      The new ones come with a turboed 2l 4 cylinder

      Lock the rear Dif and select snow/mud mode to transfer power to all wheels at all times. You'll have a blast without much effort! The Cherokee TH is quite capable. Nice job!

      Great video. That is about as hardcore as most would ever do or experience on a typical camping trail ect.

      Great video for beginners having fun. Reminds me of me and my kid brother when we were young. I would take him out places because he couldn’t drive yet. Looks like you guys have a good relationship.

      Is this the turbo? If so how did you feel about using a turbo on the trail? Have any issues with lag or unpredictable power delivery when you were crawling?

      The turbo is not avilable till late 2019 I think he said this was a 2017. So It would have to be a 3.2 L

      I didn't see anything hardcore in this video, but I will admit a lot of these obstacles would stump most crossover vehicles. Props to you for actually taking one of these highly capable crossovers off-roading, most of the ones I see here are pavement queens.

      Yeah it was about as "hardcore" as I could go being alone (with no one to pull me out of trouble) and avoiding any damage since this car is leased. Definitely felt it needed to be tested though.

      The trailhawk can do 98% of what a Wrangler can, but it’s the last 2% that makes or breaks it off road. Things like a big rock or big rut wouldn’t be such an issue with a wrangler. You can’t really lift these jeeps that much. 2” with a full skid plating you’re still gonna bottom out a lot.

      They come stock with skid plates, and you can lift it 3inches plus put bigger tires on to give you even more ground clearance, theres actually a decent amount of aftermarket stuff for these KL models!

      I'm pretty sure you can get more then a 2 inch lift. They make a 4 inch for the renegade!

      Jordan Cousland I’ve driven JKs. You can make a trailhawk do almost everything a JK can in a pinch. It’s not easy but it can be done. Except stuff like deep ruts, big rocks, or anything that requires clearance. That’s what sets it apart. I’m not saying the trailhawk is better, I’m just saying that’s all people need for a mall cruiser.

      Amazing for an American SUV. That is a true rock crawler. I'd like to see someone try that with any other "comparable" like a Rav 4, Subaru Forester, Ford Escape etc. Really, i'd like to see that and how much of a fail it would be. There is one video out there where someone takes a Cherokee Trailhawk over Black Bear Pass into Telluride. Yes, that's the one that comes down next to Bridal Veil Falls. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTvszGzrwHE Check it out.

      You should consider a lift and some rock rails. The TrailHawk becomes nearly unstoppable with those two things.

      Michael Miller Actually, the proper way to make your Jeep unstoppable is to trade it in for a Toyota.
