Sorry the Hat is only about 6% and quite short about 1/3 of great bear hill on the Coq.
The big killer roads in the province are the Duffy at 13 on either end and the Bella Coola HILL.
The Coq can noticeably raise coolant temperature though.

Whatever

My point was, 2.4 litre i4 4 x 4, handles the hat with a camping trailer at 90kph, with no strain ... I think 6 cylinder 3.2litre will handle the Coquihalla with no problems. It's not that awful. I did it several times in a v6 chevy S10 blazer with no problems whatsoever, oh! and a Subaru GL 1800 wagon (1.8l flat four) but if the thought of over heating your modern Jeep 3.2 litre frightens, you could maybe stick to the lowlands. Perhaps move to Southern Ontario. Leave the mountains to the big folk.

No question any cherokee can make it up -- even 90 year old grandmother can do it in her S10 weaving around and past the prairie chickens that forgot to shift down for the hill and boiled over, or the Porche turbos that still blow up below the snow shed because of poor driver engine management. Count the scorch marks on the asphalt leading up to great bear each one marks the end of someone's fancy turbo :-))

On a serious note the *?* ! Road is closed for the night and avy control again tonight

It will save you a night stuck out on the coq.
It is closed often enough on my monthly run into kamloops
