JEEP® ACTIVE DRIVE I 4X4 SYSTEM

Jeep Active Drive I features a single power transfer
unit (PTU) which is fully automatic and delivers
seamless operation in and out of four-wheel drive
at any speed. The system does not require any driver
intervention or feedback and is ideal for those who want
an SUV with an all-weather-capable 4x4 system that is
easy to use. Jeep Active Drive I offers balanced torque
distribution with brake traction control.
The four-wheel-drive performance results from a fully
variable wet clutch housed in the rear drive module.
The clutch supplies the proper amount of torque for any
driving condition, including slippery conditions,
aggressive starts and dynamic driving. Sophisticated
algorithms enable the system to contribute to the driving
dynamics while interacting with the electronic stability
control (ESC) system when approaching the traction limits
of the road surface.The rear axle disconnect feature only
engages the 4x4 system when necessary for improved
fuel efficiency.
SELEC-TERRAIN® TRACTION CONTROL
All the 4x4 systems of the Jeep Cherokee feature the
Jeep brand’s renowned Selec-Terrain traction control system
with four modes (Auto, Snow, Sport and Sand/Mud). Selec-Terrain
allows the driver, with a push of a button on the Selec-Terrain
dial, to choose the on- and off-road setting best suited for
optimum performance on any particular surface and is designed to
optimize the four-wheel-drive systems for unsurpassed control and
capability. Selec-Terrain electronically coordinates and optimizes
up to 12 systems on any terrain providing enhanced vehicle control,
including: drivetrain control module, electronic brake controller,
ESC, transmission controller, powertrain controller and Selec-Speed
Control (Hill-ascent and Hill-descent Control).
REAR AXLE DISCONNECT
The Jeep® Cherokee is also the first mid-size SUV to feature rear-axle disconnect, resulting in reduced energy loss when 4x4 capability isn’t needed and improving fuel efficiency. The rear-axle disconnect seamlessly switches between two- and four-wheel drive for full-time torque management and does not require input from the driver.
