I test out the new 4cyl turbo engine in the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and compare it with the V6 in my 2015 Trailhawk. Which would you choose???

      Engine looks like someone hit it with a hammer and it spit up oil.

      I’ve been doing a fair bit of off roading already in my Trailhawk 2.0t, and I’m happy. It’s a freaking mountain goat with 2 inch lift and bigger tires.

      Oh nice! Yes the Trailhawk is pretty impressive off-road. Here is my latest adventure. https://youtu.be/ZRFxQpJ9MR4

      CarGuy11 Is it mandatory to use premium fuel, or just recommended?

      The turbo 4 is slightly more efficient but uses premium fuel.

      My turbo gets the listed ~29mpg now that spring has hit on the highway and that is NOT on premium. Not sure if that would make it any better.

      I had a V6 for a weekend and it was notably worse. 2-4 worse on the highway.

      I just got a 2019 trailhawk v6. I really didn’t want the turbo because it’s their first year with it. Who knows what kind of problems you’ll have with it down the road. Plus I tow a motorcycle sometimes and the v6 is rated higher for towing even though it has less torque. Probably because you have to rev the turbo so high to access the torque.

      CarGuy11 that’s interesting. I wish they would have slapped a turbo on a V6. That would be badass. But then they’d have to put the zf 8 speed in there. This 2.0 turbo trend that they’re all doing now is kind of depressing to me.

      Nice congrats! The tow rating is lower on the turbo because of the heat generation of the turbo under boost.

      I did notice the lag when I tested them vs the 3.2. It's taken years for them to get the 3.2 to communicate effectively with the 9 speed ZF. Looks like they are just beginning with the 2.0. Downshift PLEASE... The 3.2 in Sport mode is plenty good for us.

      God, I bought a 2015 trailhawk and it was terrible. It would NEVER downshift from 3rd unless you came to a complete stop and it wouldn’t go unless I floored it. Then it would skip 2nd and slam into first and bark the tires. I took it back to the dealer for them to fix it after two weeks and they wouldn’t do anything. 2 weeks later after I was in a really dangerous situation because it wouldn’t downshift I went back to the dealer again and sat in there for 6 hours until they gave me most of my down payment back. Then I just bought a 2019 trailhawk. The transmission functions WAY better than the 2015. I was seriously about to lawyer up. Jeep refuses to acknowledge the software bug with the downshifts on the older ones. They’re trying to avoid a massive recall.

      Yep your right on, the trans is less willing to downshift in the turbo.

      Loving my V6 trailhawk. My first ride with bells and whistles. Can someone tell me if the auto-dimming rear view mirror is activated if the power button on the mirror is illuminated. Or does it mean it’s disabled when it’s illuminated? Thanks!

      We bought the 2019 trailhawk with the 4 turbo. Seems to work the very best. Great on fuel and lots of torque. No complaints here.

      Are you using premium or unleaded fuel to get that mpg?

      @Redfour5 Thanks for that site. I don’t like to comment much on fuel economy unless I experience in my daily drive since I typically get worse fuel economy due to Pitt hills, traffic & weather.

      +CarGuy11 There is a website called fuelly.com that has real people mileage over time and you can break it down by vehicle and engine. From that, it does appear to get ever so slightly better mileage.

      CarGuy11 We get a combined around 25 mpg (us) highway between 28-29 , city around 23-24. Pretty respectable given its capabilities relative to others in the category. We’re happy any ways. I think the non trail hawk models get better mileage due to reduced drag.

      I'm accustomed to seeing your Vet videos. Watching this one, you seem so disappointed as if in the back of your mind your saying "4cyl turbo? This is cute. Where's my Stingray". I'm that way while in other vehicles, minds always thinking of the C5 and Grand Sport.
      Good vid, fun to watch. Thanks to your bro for letting you share his Jeep with us!

      Premium fuel on this turbo engine according to the owners manual is recomended not required. So you do not have to use it. If your test drive would have included highway passing situations you would have defintely felt a one to two second delay from both the transmission downshift and the turbo lag. This 9 speed still takes its time to downshift even on the 2019 model.

      I'd line my tuned 3.2L Cherokee against any new Turbo KL. None of the magazine tests have shows the Turbo 4 to actually be faster than the existing V6's
