Exterior Changes

The front end of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee, while still possessing the signature seven-slot grille, has a new look that standard LED headlights bookend for a sense of style and improved visibility. Other changes, like the composite rear liftgate and aluminum hood, cut down on weight for increased performance while the beloved Trailhawk trim has an approach angle just under 30 degrees, which helps drivers looking to explore uneven roads.

Additionally, there are several factors and features that make driving more convenient, like the larger windows that let you see more and the heated exterior mirrors and windshield wiper de-icer that Kentwood, MI drivers are sure to praise in the winter. Plus, it has a hands-free liftgate for when you're loading up the rear with bags from a shopping trip.

Interior Comfort

Car shoppers will notice a few differences when they get into the cabin as the 2019 Jeep Cherokee caters to passenger comfort even more than past models. It has a wider cargo space that fits hockey bags more easily while other convenient storage spaces are perfect for smaller items, and rear-seat passengers can slide their seats when they crave more legroom. To top it off, optional, exquisite seating surfaces and features like the dual-pane panoramic sunroof give off a nicer, more natural cabin feel.


Engine Options and Performance

The Jeep Cherokee has many design aspects to thank for its renowned capability, but you can't forget the potent engine options, of which there are three.

  • A 2.4-liter four-cylinder
  • A 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder
  • A 3.2-liter V6

None of these engines will disappoint those looking for thrills on or off-road, and each comes with an impressive 9-speed automatic transmission, but there are some differences, like the turbo four-cylinder having the most torque, 295 pound-feet, or the V6 having the highest towing capacity, 4,500 pounds.

More than the engines, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee has a several 4x4 systems that are great for poor-traction conditions whether that's due to snow and ice or mud and gravel. Even when on paved roads around Wyoming, MI, the new dampers and smooth-braking systems make for rides free of discomfort.


 Safety and Technology

We've discussed some of the new technology that drivers can find in the 2019 Jeep Cherokee, but it's far from all of it. Drivers will still find available safety features like blind spot monitoring, but previous systems receive upgrades, like the Full-Speed Forward Collision Warning with Active Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go. Plus, the Jeep Cherokee now uses the sensors of these features to help with parallel and perpendicular parking with the Automated Parking feature.

The re-tuning of these and other tech features, like the Uconnect system, as well as aspects for adventures, like the Select-Terrain® Traction Management System with Snow Mode, make the 2019 Jeep Cherokee one of the smartest vehicles on whichever road you choose to explore with it.
