Jeep is in the business of making impressive SUVs, and the Cherokee is a testament to it. Tough and rugged, it easily makes the transition from roughing it out in the wild to taming the city streets. With plenty of room for passengers and their gear, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is a great choice for the adventurous executive or carpool parent.
The 2019 Cherokee still has all the features that easily distinguish it as Jeep, such as the intimidating grille and tough-looking exterior, but some design elements have smoothed out the edges a little. This gives the exterior a more sophisticated look but doesn’t take away any of the Cherokee’s ruggedness. Drivers will have an option of six trims, which starts off with the Latitude as the base model. The other models in the range are the Latitude Plus, Altitude, Trailhawk, Limited, and Overland.
There are three different engines to choose from. The 2.4-liter I4 MultiAir engine is standard on the Latitude, Latitude Plus, and the Altitude. The 2.0-liter I4 DOHC DI turbo engine is an option for all trims except the Latitude. There is also a 3.2-liter V-6 24-valve VVT engine which is standard in the Trailhawk, Limited, and the Overland. All engines are paired with nine-speed automatic transmissions, however, there are a few additions to the transmissions of the Trailhawk, Limited, and the Overland.
While the Cherokee features a 15.9-gallon fuel tank, they haven’t released their emissions figures as yet. The Cherokee features some exciting figures under the hood, starting with the 270 horsepower and 294 pound-feet of torque for the 2.0-liter engine. The 2.4-liter MultiAir engine offers 184 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque and the 3.2-liter packs 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque.
Jeep takes care of even the smallest details and for the first three trims, the day/night rearview mirrors attest to that. The other trims rely on the auto-dimming rearview mirror. The Overland features a 5-year connection to SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link services. Apple Car Play and Google Android Auto capabilities are standard across the range, as well as USB Host Flip and a remote USB port. The first three trims make use of the Uconnect 4 system with the 7-inch display and the other trims the feature the Uconnect 4 system with an 8.4-inch display.
The ParkView rear backup camera and the Lock On Sync tire pressure sensor are standard safety features across the range. The Limited and Overland trims have the option of adding LaneSense lane departure warning and full speed collision warning with crash mitigation to their packages. The keyless entry with panic alarm and Keyless Go make it easier for drivers to leave potentially dangerous areas. Blind-spot and cross-path detections are available throughout the range. All speed traction control make those tricky bouldering trips a little safer and an array of advanced airbag systems keep passengers safe in the event of a collision.
