Shop the new 2019 Jeep Cherokee: cargur.us/nzJsR

After more than a decade of sales under the Liberty model name, Jeep returned its Cherokee to the U.S. market for the 2014 model year with a very different and controversial look. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee debuts a new, more traditional front end as well as a new engine and optional hands-free liftgate. The new Cherokee makes the Grand Cherokee’s look and feel available in a more compact, less expensive package, and the Trailhawk trim can almost match the Wrangler’s off-road capabilities.

The Cherokee lineup offers 3 engines, including a 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder and a 3.2-liter V6 that have been available in past versions. The new engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four with 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque that improves mileage and towing capacity, but also requires premium fuel. All engines use a 9-speed automatic, and most trims are available with front-wheel or 4-wheel drive, but the Trailhawk and Trailhawk Elite are available only with 4-wheel drive.

      you did not give the trailhawk justice. The roads you drove on are what we take to get to the trails.Next time get it muddy.

      A lot of these car reviewers drive Ferrari and Mercedes and then they get in a "regular humans car" and complain that it isn't as luxurious or isn't that fast as they are used too....they are just spoiled.......I went from a 2012 Pickup to a Jeep Cherokee and I love it !!! I am 100% happy with it.

      My wife owns a 3.2L 2014 Latitude. Never had a problem. Best car she's ever had. Won't let me update it.

      Among the sea of boring SUVs, the Cherokee stands out especially the Trailhawk version possessing true off road capability. Very few vehicles have a locking rear diff and low range. Behind the wheel, there is a robustness and refinement about it. What impressed me about the 2019 Trailhawk I test drove were the NVH levels and ride quality even with AT tires; Its on par if not better than the Audi A4 Allroad I currently own. Don't be misled, the Cherokee is a well designed, well thought out product that has a place in the marketplace. A true go anywhere vehicle that has me rethinking my garage.

      My wife is picking up her new one later today but I gotta ask.....Who's the bright designer who placed the antenna between the luggage racks? And who placed the fuel door on the passenger side? Most if not all gas stations around here you have to keep to the right of the pumps! I guess if the hose is long enough we'll havta drape it over the roof, avoid the antenna and fuel up! I guess the designer is from the UK!

      CapeAnnImages, yesterday, I pulled up to the pump in my 2015 Cherokee, and right there, one lane over was an earlier Ford Freestyle, with the fuel filler on the right hand side.

      Gloucester, Ma with its narrow streets is where I live and what side of the pumps you pull up is dictated on the traffic patterns , the gas station layout and the short fuel hoses that makes it difficult. And in some cases annoying for other drivers pulling in.

      +CapeAnnImages Bizarre. In Canada and the parts of the US I havee been to
      (West coast and along the border) it is expected that you line up according to what side the tank is on, and pull all the way forward when you do.

      I'm in Gloucester, Ma Cape Ann which most is an island, just the other day I took my wife's Jeep to get gas and purposely pulled up to the right side of the pump and the hose was too short! If I pull up to the left side of the pumps I get those evil stares from drivers who either have to wait or try the wrong side of the gas pump island.

      I don't get all the hate out there for the Cherokee Trailhawk. It made it through the Rubicon Trail, and have seen it in more than one video handling stuff you would never see on most trails. The transmission problem was fixed years ago.

      I have a 2017 Trailhawk since brand new and haven't had one problem yet. I hunt and fish, I have taken it on cart tracks and aside from some scratches, not one complaint! Take it from someone who actually owns and uses it for what it is designed, this is a great vehicle.

      I wish it had more ground clearance. But getting some rock sliders would help. Glad they put all that underneath protection so it can get scratched up. For the harder stuff it has Lockers in the rear. Some BF Goodrich ko2 or something like that would make it a better offer roder.

      Ivan Vojt, I’ve owned a 2015 2WD Cherokee Latitude for four years, and now have 2019 4WD Cherokee Latitude in the driveway right next to the older one. Not had a problem with either one.

      Everyone I know who owns one of these has had transmission problems. Long term reliability on this SUV sucks. FCA should've fixed this since it first occurred in 2014. 2017 models are having transmission failures. Jeep dealerships now have a dedicated phone line for transmission failures. You should be able to get one these brand new from the dealer $10K below MSRP.

      Troy V, I’ve had a 2015 Latitude 2.4L 2WD for four years, and liked it so much, I bought a 2019 Latitude 2.4L 4WD, and now We have two. My next move will be to train off the 2.L 2WD for a 3.2L 4WD next spring, with leather seats and the towing package.

      I’ve had nothing but good experiences with them, and plan to keep my soon-to-be loaded, V6 4WD Cherokee a long time.

      My wife has a '14 Cherokee, it certainly has had far fewer issues than my "luxury" German sedan. No transmission problems. We take it everywhere and frankly, I prefer it to mine. And it only has the pokey 4 cylinder engine.
