More refined exterior styling, a new turbocharged 2.0L engine, and new tech features make the 2019 Jeep Cherokee more appealing to compact crossover buyers. While the Trail Rated Trailhawk trim gives you nearly 9" inches of ground clearance and a real 4WD system for those who actually plan to use their Cherokee off road. However, those who plan to keep it on paved roads will find that its on-road dynamics continue to place it behind rivals and its frustrating 9-speed transmission still needs further improvements in shift response and smoothness.

      I just spent weeks test driving all sorts of crossover SUVs from Honda, Toyotas, Mazdas and Nissans with their AWD crap. You want real off roading 4x4s? Then Jeep is the original and all the rest are wannabes. Just leased a 2019 trailhawk for my daughter. Good ride, spacious, safe, all the toys etc. The 2L DI Turbo is the same engine they put in their Alfa Romeos sport sedans and SUVs. The Jeep is no doubt heavier, but honestly who buys a Jeep to go 0-60 in x seconds. That's what my Jaguar XJL Supercharged is for.

      Watched this review while sitting in a Cherokee at the dealer. (I’m going to start doing This more) the interior portion of this vehicle is biased and not truthful (cheap feeling materials ) touched everything he did at the same time and same way he touch and poked and everything is very well built.

      Is driving with flip flops allowed in the US? In Brazil, where people use a lot of flip flops, it's strictly prohibited because it can cause serious accidents....

      My 2019 2.0T's transmission was wonky at first. But the car must have broken in because it's very smooth now except for when I'm screwing around in sport mode. Used to driving an Audi sedan, so I may have driving habits the Jeep techs aren't used to... Oh yeah, and why doesn't he test the thing off-road? Same old "heres the buttons, here's the acceleration, here's the interior" rubbish. Misses the point.

      WHICH ONE IS IT??
      12:55 'the ride is rough and loud from the tire and drumming noise.'
      16:49 'the ride is very comfortable, quiet, and calming.'
      18:36 'the infotaiment system frustrated me *a little bit* .'
      18:46 'I wanted to punch the infotaiment system in the face.'

      I concur this is a very honest review, good job.
      The insurance company covers a V6 model to me during me car repair.
      pros: masculine look, easy to use in-car system, good eye sight.
      cons: the transmission doesn't feel smooth at all, and can't feel the acceleration after 100km/h.

      I like all his videos on cars but he doesn't really understand what it is about Jeeps. When he first starts the video he says the trail rated badge is because of the tires, later he also mentions the 4X4 options. The trail badge means it has skid plates to protect against rocks, also has the air filter in a position to stay dry for water crossings, a transfer case for lower gearing to crawl out of places you get stuck in with regular gears. On the Cherokees you have the option to electronically lock rear end to a posi. Watching his videos I know he likes the Porsche and BMW's for powerful motors, Jeep is made for trails first and being comfortable on paved roads second. I love my '98 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 318 motor, it is so comfortable on and off road. It takes care of me in Colorado for the last 20 years. Once you own a Jeep, you learn to appreciate what they can do. If you just want to drive on the streets buy a Honda, hehe. Sorry, I had to throw the last part in, no offense to Honda lovers. I can take my Jeep up mountain trails over boulders with ice and my Jeep doesn't slip but if I have to get out and unlock a gate, I can barely keep my feet under me.

      Grand Cherokees are bigger with more luxury and options with interior, 4X4, motors. If you don't know you need to go to a dealer and have them explain it to you. I am looking at the Overland models, more specific the High Altitude, with 19 speakers, air shocks that you can raise and lower the vehicle. The trail hawks are a cheaper version of the Overland Jeep which is the more off road version of Jeep, then the High Altitude and Summit are the more luxurious version of Overland. Also look at all the videos of the different models on your computer. I don't think I want a 4 cylinder in a Jeep, 6 cylinder is the smallest I would go. I have a '98 Jeep Grand Cherokee now with the v8, 318 motor and I love it.

      Why would you be surprised a 2019 SUV has a lot of tech? “It has lane assist FCW ETC , which I was surprised to see in .. THIS car “ is it Because it’s a chrysler??? You are a VERY mean person when it comes who FCA products when fca has had these tech features since 2011. Come on times have changed they’re not with Daimler anymore. Move on people. Their back on the map 100% and people only give them credit for those stupid SRT cars.

      AND... lastly, I had a 90 Wrangler new, a 92 Wrangler new, a 95 Wrangler new, a 97 TJ Wrangler new. Consumer Reports hated them. Yet, all 4 were really reliable oddly enough. Bunches of rattles that drove me nuts, otherwise they held up really well and I put over 50K miles on each one while I was in sales at the time. Then I had Toyotas, Hondas, Range Rovers, Ford and Chevy pickups. A Mini Countryman, even a couple of Mazda's and Kia Sorrento SXL-V6. After all that, I just purchased a new 19 Wrangler Sahara Unlimited 6CYL. Auto, 8spd. I love it and I'm enjoying it more then any of the other cars and trucks I ever had. I'll take the FCA risk. You only live once and I'm going to enjoy this. Then again, we may live more then once, there's a lot to be said for reincarnation. HA.

      My 19 Wrangler has the 8spd. tranny. It's amazingly good, shifts excellent, smooth, perfect. I can't understand why the 9spd is so mismatched. We have a Mazda CX-5. Great car, but we want something different this time, per usual. Drove the Honda CRV, Toyota Rav4, Ford Escape. Now a 19 Cherokee. The Cherokee feels the most comfortable, most well appointed, quiet, tranny seems to have been much improved. It really was the nicest of the bunch. Hopefully reliable!. I think this may be our next choice for her. 6cyl. ONLY. EDIT: Picked up our 19 Cherokee Limited on Saturday. Tranny is VERY smooth, no issues, 300 miles. Perfect. Love it.

      The 9 speed is garbage. I have a 2014 with the V6. Ive had several tranny ecu updates. Still poor. High number of recalls. Leaky sunroof. Sub par for the $30K price bracket. High depreciation rate. Avoid it!

      Hard to believe they can get 40k for that rig. Looks so cheap on the inside. If I really wanted a SUV that I was going to take off road it would be a 4Runner. It will still be running in 10 years. Wouldn't bet this will be.
