2019 Jeep Cherokee Review
As the compact SUV class gets more and more competitive, the new Jeep Cherokee needs only minor advancements to its technology and features to keep it at the head of the pack. The 2019 model offers all the performance and rugged capability of the previous model, along with some new styling and interior amenities that allow it to stand out in this crowded segment.
Drivers in Mansfield, Attleboro and Norton can learn more about what’s new for the Jeep Cherokee with our in-depth 2019 Jeep Cherokee review.
2019 Jeep Cherokee Updates
The new Cherokee model sticks with some of the bold styling elements of the original but softens some of the edges for a more appealing overall design. New fog lights, LED headlights and sculpting on the hood and front end give it a more conventional appeal, without compromising the aggressive, daring style that hints at its capability.
Inside, the Cherokee interior keeps the majority of the design cues from 2018, while adding some impressive new features like a 7-inch Uconnect touchscreen and more upscale materials throughout.
New Jeep Cherokee Performance
The new Cherokee also gets a major engine update for the new model year. A 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four that produces 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque is available for the new model, in addition to its existing engine options. The base 180-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four and the 271-horsepower, 3.2-liter V-6 are still part of the Cherokee lineup. Power is shuttled to either the front wheels or all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission as well.
The Cherokee uses a MacPherson strut front suspension and a four-link rear suspension for improved handling and off-road capability. This upgrade reduces the overall weight of the new Cherokee, as well as giving it the necessary tuning for both sharp corners and the rapidly-changing off-road environment. All Cherokee trim levels are capable trail vehicles, but the Trailhawk model is specifically designed for capability, including such features as reshaped bumpers for better angles, tow hooks, a blacked-out hood and a locking rear differential.
New Jeep Cherokee Safety
Based on previous Cherokee models, the 2019 Cherokee is likely to perform well for its crash tests. Its structure is strong and resilient, and all models come with front-impact and side-impact airbags, hill-start assist, a rear-view camera, trailer-sway control and electronic stability control for additional safety.
Optional advanced safety features include forward collision warning and mitigation, which is a feature designed to detect and mitigate a potential frontal collision, and lane departure warning, which helps you maintain your position in your lane with the help of sensors and a guidance system. Rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring are also optional.
