Is the Jeep Cherokee Good in Snow?

Let’s be real for a second. Living in Ottawa, we’re no strangers to the snow. It snows an average of 88” every year. That’s a lot of white powder that piles up on the roads and often becomes compacted as plows and salters attempt to clear it off and away.  As such, we need vehicles that can handle this cold and icy terrain without fishtailing, skidding, or losing traction overall.

So, is the Jeep Cherokee good in snow? Short answer: yes. Long answer: yes, for many reasons. Not only is the Jeep Cherokee good for off-road driving, it also handles well in the snow, meaning you can get where you need to go, no matter how snowy or icy the roads may be. Let’s take a look at why the Jeep Cherokee is a great vehicle for winter in Ottawa.

4×4 system: Driving off-road and in the snow requires precision control and traction, which the Renegade provides with a superior 4×4 system. Actually, the Cherokee has two 4×4 systems, one low-power that lets the front wheels handle most of the heavy lifting (saving gas), and the Active Drive 4×4 for when you need comprehensive control.

Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System: Designed with snow in mind, the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System ensures you have total traction while facing harsh weather conditions and subpar roads.

Cozy interior: One of the most important features of driving in the winter in Canada is guaranteeing you have a safe and comfortable ride. The well-insulated and sealed Cherokee makes sure you ride in comfort from A to B with cushioned seats, excellent warmth, and optional upgraded entertainment systems.

Facing Ottawa winters is a tough challenge for drivers, and you need to make sure you have the right vehicle for the job, otherwise, it could cost you money, or even the wellbeing of yourself and your loved ones.
