Engine Stop-Start Technology

Each of the engines offered with the 2019 Cherokee has been equipped with the innovative Engine Stop-Start technology. Commonly referred to as ESS, this system works to intelligently maximize fuel economy and reduce emissions without interrupting the smooth and engaging ride quality. This system monitors the speed of the vehicle at all times. When the brakes are fully applied to bring the Cherokee to a complete stop, the fuel flow is cut, and the engine is turned off. However, this is nearly undetectable as the vehicle's batteries maintain other systems, thereby not interfering with the in-cabin comfort. When the brake is released, the transmission and engine quickly and seamlessly restart.
