2019 Jeep Cherokee at Efird Dodge Chrysler Jeep

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee re-formats its traditional Jeep design and directs straight at the future of both the on- and off-roading boundaries. A freshened-up front and rear design, augmented LED headlamps and taillamps, partnered with five wheel designs make for a hard bargain to ignore. Get up to 19-inches of water on the side and you're still going to be fine, with features like more sealing around the electrical and body components, as well as a raised air intake. It also rocks great articulation due to its unibody construction with independent suspension on every corner. The ground clearance is excellent for off-roading, but not so high as to ruin the on-pavement drive, which in today's world is the mark of an exceptional all-around vehicle!

What are the four-wheel-drive and powertrain options in the 2019 Jeep Cherokee?

The 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 engine (with ESS) musters 271 horsepower and 239 lb.-ft. of torque that can attain a towing number of 4,500-lbs (best-in-class). A brand new 2.0-liter direct-injection turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque is here for the 2019 year, and it also has engine stop-start (ESS) technology. The proven 2.4-L Tigershark MultiAir2 engine (with ESS) churns 170 lb.-ft. of torque, hefts 180 horsepower, and is paired up with a 9-speed automatic transmission (as all the engines are). Three tested and tweaked four-wheel-drive systems are found in the 2019 Jeep Cherokee! The Jeep Active Drive I brings an augmented rear drive module, the Jeep Active Drive brings a 2-speed Power Transfer Unit (PTU) and a low-range gear reduction capability. These dual systems are purchasable on the Latitude, Latitude Plus, Overland, and Limited models. The 3rd system, standard on the Trailhawk model, is titled Jeep Active Drive Lock and it adds a mechanically-locking rear differential as well as a 5-Mode Selec-Terrain traction-control system (Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud and Rock). An independent suspension with struts up front and an independent multilink suspension out back certainly enable incredible articulation, and up to a 51.2:1 crawl ratio can be achieved in the 2019 Cherokee!

What do the models bring in terms of features for 2019?

There are five models: the Limited, Latitude, Latitude Plus, Overland, and the Trailhawk. A contemporary Uconnect system with pinch-and-zoom capability is the fourth-generation for this system, and it works very well. It has app compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus, drivers can select either 7.0" or 8.4" touchscreens (NAV available on 8.4"). One of the core design elements is the signature waterfall hood and also arguably Jeep's seven-slot grille-- but they complement each other equally regardless. Overland trims have new chrome steel tow hooks as standard. There is also an electable dual-pane sunroof, and an optional handsfree liftgate. Impressively, the rear cargo room gets over 27 cubic feet, and there are new options for cabin hues: Dark Sienna and Storm Blue. There are 12 exterior color options, ranging from traditional to groundbreaking. Jeep also revised the center console slightly that houses the front media center hub (which now allows drivers to scroll through user-friendly graphics using a button on the steering wheel, as an available option). The 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk model has steel protective skid plates, higher fender flares, lifted ride height, enhanced Active Drive Lock, an anti-glare decal on the hood, and standard red tow hooks.

Is security strong in the 2019 Jeep Cherokee?

There are more than 80 advanced safety and security items within the 2019 Cherokee mid-size sport-utility vehicle, like LaneSense Lane Departure Warning-Plus, Electronic Roll Mitigation, and Rear Cross Path detection. There are 8 airbags as standard and the entire vehicle rides on a 65 percent high-strength steel basis to begin with, which is new in 2019. Active and passive points of interest for safety are Forward Collision Warning-Plus, Blind-spot Monitoring, Adaptive Cruise Control-Plus, SOS button, ParkSense Parallel/Perpendicular Park Assist, Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and ParkView rear backup camera with dynamic grid lines. With an on-screen alert or audible chime, the ParkView system will bring the driver's attention to obscured objects behind the vehicle. With all this and more, it's certainly time to get excited about a 2019 Jeep Cherokee!

Final Thoughts on the 2019 Jeep Cherokee

The Jeep Cherokee, in summary, is a powerhouse on the trails and a tough contender on the highways as well. With three popular four-wheel-drive systems, an all-new turbocharged 2.0L engine, a new front fascia, five fresh wheel designs, and the street-cred from previous years' capability benchmarks-- you would be very smart to consider this vehicle in your lineup to test out when it hits dealerships!
