What’s new in the 2019 Cherokee design?
Jeep presents a new modern sleek styling to the 2019 Cherokee, design cues calling to its big brother’s grand presence and authority, the upscale Grand Cherokee.An all new hood, front fascia, LED headlamp and fog lamp layout provides a smooth, aerodynamic silhouette without forgetting its Jeep roots.Still present is the brand’s signature seven-slot grille, with the Cherokee’s round headlight projection evocative of those classic round headlamps found on Wranglers.Speaking of Wranglers, nothing is quite like that brand-famous open-air freedom, and the Cherokee mirrors this with large windows and and a huge available dual-paned power sunroof to bring the outside in.The interior has been refined to include greater space within the trunk, now totalling 25.8 cu.ft while the 60/40 rear seat is still up.Other smart storage has been added throughout the vehicle, too.There’s the discrete phone slot of the front console, strategically placed next to the USB ports for easy charging, and an adjustable trunk floor that can either provide more height to the standard storage space or provide a discreet under-floor bin.The second-row also slides, providing passengers with greater legroom or cargo with more area.
How does the new powertrain compare to the other engines?
Bringing back the powertrains of last year that you know and love, the two engines found in 2018 models are enhanced with all new efficiencies and power.And, for 2019, a new powertrain is added to your options!All powertains come with a standard automatic nine-speed transmission, and give you the choice of either front- or all-wheel drive configurations.First up is the 2.4L inline four cylinder engine, carrying over from last year with added fuel economy to bump up its mpg to 22/31 city/highway.This engine generates a reliable 171 lb-ft torque and 180hp, better suited for those whose adventures take them more towards the steel jungle.Those who want to journey away would be very pleased with the available 3.2L V6, the engine standard in the off-road specialized Trailhawk.This elevates performance to 239 lb-ft torque and 271hp, rated to tow up to a best-in-class 4,500 pounds when properly equipped.New for this model year, Jeep has included an available turbocharged 2.0L inline four-cylinder for those who want to specialize more in economy compared to power–though this system packs plenty of that as well!It matches the V6 in horsepower, and generates a larger 295 lb-ft of torque for a better distribution throughout the nine gears.It can tow a good 4,000 pounds, too, which is nothing to laugh at.Its maximum fuel efficiency comes with the front-wheel drive configuration, and supplies drivers with 23/31 mpg.
Tell me about Jeep’s best-in-class AWD performance!
The Cherokee’s four-wheel drive systems set the benchmark for midsize SUV performance, providing drivers with best-in-class Trail Rated capabilities and superb on-road handling.All Cherokees are equipped with one of Jeep’s Active Drive systems; Active Drive I is standard within the base models.This next generation rear drive module reduces weight while enhancing the vehicle’s efficiency and performance.Active Drive II comes standard within higher trims, providing a two-speed Power Transfer Unit and low gear range torque performance.This is paired with the Trailhawk’s exclusive Drive Lock to mechanically lock the rear differential when torque should be distributed to other tires for up to a 51.2:1 crawl ratio.This system can even dedicate 100% of torque to one tire for continuous traction and forward momentum.Each 2019 AWD Jeep Cherokee comes equipped with a Selec-Terrain traction control system with up to five customizable modes that expertly tweek performance numbers to handle an array of common terrains and weather.There’s Auto, Snow, Sport, and Sand/Mud standard, with the Trailhawk supplying an extra Rock mode.
