The Trailhawk version of this mid-size crossover features 4-wheel-drive with a rear locker and an extra inch of ground clearance. With 8.8 inches between you and the dirt, the Trailhawk will see you through wintertime trouble. A 184 horsepower, 2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder or a 271 horsepower, 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 can be slotted under the Cherokee’s hood.

With the Cherokee’s MSRP starting around $27,645 for a 4×4 Latitude, the Cherokee offers up an affordable proposition to buyers. Its off-road cred will see owners through most tricky winter situations.
