      2019 trailhawk 3.2 L baby... I searched all over ontario for a trailhawk with a 2.0 turbo but couldn't find any... after hearing about the issues, i'm quite happy with the ol faithful V6

      I bought a 2019 Cherokee Lat. Plus with 2.0 L turbo last year. A few months in, the floor would fill with water when
      it rained. They never could fix it or figure it out. Finally got my money back from Jeep after a long process.
      Beware, apparently mine not the only one with this issue.

      It’s not weird that 2.0 is a $500 option in the trailhawk when the base engine on the trailhawk is the v6 and the turbo is s $500 premium over the v6 in the latitude ($2200 vs $1700)

      Don Curt In reply to JaxT83

      Your 2 examples sound the same to me because the 2.0 is the turbo and 2200 versus 1700 is a 500 difference as well. Unless I'm missing something?

      Hey guys. My wife is a home healthcare nurse, meaning she has to go to patient’s homes in all weather, no days off due to bad weather, often going to rural areas, neighborhoods/driveways likely not cleared well. We are in Northern Illinois so significant snow/ice each year. She has to go out in all road conditions day and night. She has her choices narrowed to the Cherokee 4x4 or the Subaru Outback. Is one of these clearly better than the other? I ask as I know you have tested both. Thanks!

      I had the V6 in a 2017 and now in a 2019 4x4 Latitude. I bought the white--I know it makes no difference today in
      resale value BUT it looks cool and is visible--and a lot of the roads in Austin are not lit once you are out of the downtown, University of Texas area. I consider the 2019 with the 3.2 V6 almost a safety feature as the straight 4 is underpowered--
      if you are unfamiliar with the Jeep Cherokee try each one, especially getting on a highway. Try the Sand/Gravel setting in
      an appropriate area--it makes a real difference. I suppose I have the cheaper (ha ha) interior are my sales person
      is the manager of pre-owned vehicles, but my last Cherokee had 4 miles on it and this one had 345--they had to get it from another dealer. The restyling really makes this look more like the older Grand Cherokee with lots of facelift, I had a 2005 Laredo (rear wheel drive) which I don't recommend--I had light gray and was rear-ended once, and the rear wheel drive put me into a 360 degree spin. I never liked the limited slip differential, and this is what happens when part of the pavement is just a little wet but not the same as the other side. I was almost killed when a state road sign stopped my spinning--forward of the driver's side mirror. "nuff said about that." Love the looks and drivability of the new Cherokee--in 4x4 you have 4 settings including the gravel/sand/snow, but the regular FWD is sufficient. I'm getting around 20.5 mpg around Austin (some highways) with the V6.

      We just took ownership of a 2019 Overland Cherokee in the brownstone pearl and tan leather interior. It is a beauty :)We've had several Grand Cherokee but we no longer need the additional room.
      Since the 2019 Cherokee was restyled, we really liked the look and decided to downsize, somewhat! But, we still wanted all the bells and whistles and ordered an Overland. We really love it. The color is beautiful and the interior is very rich. I'm loving the blind spot alert :)

      +Don Curt In the past, we would buy white. But when I saw the brownstone in the brochure, it was a color that we had never seen on the road. So we went out of our comfort zone and ordered the brownstone pearl! It really compliments the tan interior nicely. Granted the Cherokee doesn't have to pick up that we were used to with the Grand but we are very happy driving it. We like the smaller size also. I have bad back issues and the Cherokee sets lower so it is definitely easier to get into/out. Our salesperson was wise in directing us to order the Overland package to get equal extras that we had in the Grand Cherokees. We also added the advanced safety option. I have not attempted the auto park yet ;-)

      V6 Trailhawk Elite. Sunroof/tow/cold/convenience packages. Got the premium speaker, which is a must for someone who values good sound. (i used to install my own stereos into every other car i've owned) I would get the same thing again in a heatbeat. This thing continues to amazing me in its capabilities. Will it out-wheel everyone ever...nope....will it follow a modest Wrangler down most trails...yes sir it will.

      The updates to all the little 'death by papercuts' things that they did for the '19s is what sold me. The nav being licensed from Garmin is nice too.

      StrykerV8 In reply to Joel Spivak

      +Joel Spivak Ok where to even begin here. I think it's important to note that the only reason you two are even arguing is because you instigated this. The question is why come here to shit on the new generation of jeeps that are nothing but a major improvement over a 19 year old SUV Jeep. The new jeeps do in fact drive better on the road, have better technologies and luxuries, and are more comfortable to just name a few things. Even the V6 Pentastar is proven and reliable. Why do you think Chrysler has used it for well over 8 years now and it powers the majority of there vehicles. Also it has instant Torque that is linear and consistent across the board. From 1500-4000rpm you get 100% Torque and plenty of hp. I know tons of people that have done well over 250,000K without any issues. It's a better modern day engine than your Straight 6 unless your definition is purely based on simplicity and potential millage. If that is the case then we might as well talk about Diesels, all the old 90's engines and even Toyota engines. So why are you here complaining about a Cherokee model that isn't even the Grand Cherokee.

      Oh by the way I used to own a 2000 Grand Cherokee in Shale Green Metallic, which I sold it in 2008. The very notion that my 2000 Cherokee even comes close to say for example my 2016 Grand Cherokee Eco Diesel Overland is short of ludicrous. Even the Cherokee KL in this video is in a completely different league than that old rust bucket.
      Your claim that It drives fine on the road is not the same as it drives as well or to the same caliber as the new ones. As mentioned by "John Q" the very simple fact that the 2000 Grand Cherokee's were Body on Frame SUV's meant that it's driving dynamic's were severely compromised. Also since you are behind the times, you fail to understand the many modern day innovations and engineering feats have made it possible for SUV's or even Jeeps to have similar handling capabilities as a sedan. Your excuse that "it's not a sports cars so who cares about it's cornering, performance and road mannerisms etc.. is a cope out.

      Last but not least I got a good chuckle when you claimed that during the Daimler Chrysler era 1998-2009 that Chrysler was known for reliability. Are you aware that 2000-2009 was one of the worst era's for Chrysler. Go ask anyone that hates and despises Chrysler and 90% of the cars they talk about were designed, manufactured and sold by Daimler Mercedes. Regarding FIAT, almost anyone that talks shit about Jeep or RAM saying it's nothing but a FIAT ends up regretting it as I simply make a fool of them. See they actually have no idea what has happened during the FIAT Chrysler merger = FCA. RAM for example has very little to do with the FIAT in terms of Engineering, platforms etc...The same applies to Jeep. Now I will admit that the Jeep Renegade is a travesty since that is an example of a FIAT child with the jeep badge. However that is the exception not the rule. FIAT owns Chrysler but there involvement is not what ignorant people think, instead if you truly understand the automotive world it's rather irritating to listen to others talk with authority when in fact all they are doing is parroting what they think needs to be said. Bare in mind the Jeep and RAM brand has only improved with FIAT's involvement = MONEY. RAM right now will be #2 in 2020 for Pickups and they are absolutely killing it compared to FORD. They are #1 when it comes to innovation, features and design. The Italians are the best when it comes to interior design and you see this with RAM and even Jeep. Just wait till 2020 when they refresh the Jeep line up. If you take a look at this Jeep, it's platform, engine and partial drive train are all from the Chrysler Jeep division and share no FIAT engineered designs. The transmissions on Jeeps come from ZF Germany. So Again where is FIAT's involvement or DNA found? The only place FIAT has had influence is with the Styling and they are one of the best in that department. The Cherokee KL is made up of 87% US parts and manufactured in Ohio with the Wrangler at the Jeep Plant.

      The only negative I see with FIAT is there Inline 4 engine which is crap and there minor tampering by introducing a FIAT European inspired model, such as the Renegade. As you can see they have been very careful and conservative testing the market. The end result is Americans don't want FIAT European cars. Thankfully most there vehicles give you 3 engine options. V6 Pentastar, 5.7 Hemi, the new Turbo inline 4 with 280hp. The V8 Hemi and Pentastar are great Chrysler engines. We now have the Jeep Pickup which I think is really cool since there has been a huge demand for one.

      FIAT or more specially Sergio Marconi<<--CEO of FCA(he died in June 2018 during surgery) is a legend for what he did for Chrysler after Mercedes destroyed and raped them. Go read about him and you will see even people that hate Chrysler admit that he was a legend and was short of a genius when you consider how he was able to keep Chrysler alive, all the while rebuilding Chrysler internally with the right people for it's future benefit. You do know Daimler sucked Chrysler dry of not only all there finances but they also destroyed there culture and hierarchical structure. Chrysler had 18 Billion in reserves in 1998 before the Merger. Mercedes in 2000-2007 were at there worst and surprisingly so was Chrysler(not a coincidence) not to mention Daimler had little cash reserve. So they sucked Chrysler dry and dumped them. When FIAT acquired them, Chrysler had no money, outdated platforms in a time were development of platforms became more complex and required over a minimum of 800 Million. Also when Mercedes owned them they refused to share alot of the technology which was silly. Not all but many of the Germans in a position of authority felt that Chrysler was beneath them(Of course when it came to there 18 Billion in reserves they had no qualms then) and fought to keep as much of there proprietary IP away from them or in a limited capacity. It had to be one of the worst mergers ever and Daimler was 80% at fault. The reality is they were motivated primary by greed and figured if things didn't work out they could dump the American brand and run with the money which they did.

      Oh and when people say FIAT is crap, remind them that FIAT also Owns Ferrari the worlds most recognize high performance exotic spots car. In Europe FIAT developed the most reliable Diesel car engine. Most of what people say here in America is based on the FIAT from the 80's-90's.

      Paul J rHey man, don't tell me my Jeep rides like shit on the highway! It's as smooth as any late model sedan! It's not a Cherokee, it's a Grand Cherokee! Just because the mileage is low for the year it's because I also have a 2007 Mercury grand MarquisLS! I alternate the two of them! I'm not looking down on the modern Jeeps, I've driven many of them, wasn't impressed! My Jeep has all new suspension giving it a fabulous ride! Yes it does not have the power or torque of the new ones, but For me 0-60 in 8 seconds is fast enough! It's an SUV, not a sports car! My Jeep has been completely rebuilt and restored to brand new! I did most of the work myself! I'm proud to drive her! Quality wise, Chryslers from 20 years ago were known for their reliability! Today, mention Fiat/Chrysler to any one savvy about the business, they are at the bottom for reliability! And that's a fact! You mentioned Toyota Camry! Are you saying Fiat/Chrysler is comparable to the Toyota line of cars and SUV's ? That's a joke if I've ever heard one! As far as a "Performance car goes, I also have a 1990 Lincoln MarkV11 LSC! It's got the 5.0 Mustang engine which I've done some modifications to.. And it will go 0-60 in 5 seconds! It's a gorgeous classic rare automobile growing in value every year! I'm not knocking anyone for purchasing a new Jeep wether it be the Wrangler, Compass, Cherokee or Grand Cherokee! They are all beautiful! I wish you, and all of our Jeep loving family members to enjoy the best off road vehicles ever!

      +Joel Spivak regarding what? Let's take a step back. What was the original point or issue you were making. Think about that for a second

      Now 169,000k is nothing buddy, so I was correct in saying that it's irrelevant you mentioning that your 19 year old jeep is tip top since by now you should have well over 800,000k.

      Nevermind how you conventionally avoided the main points to my counter argument. You know how the modern day jeep such as the one you are poo pooping and acting like your ancient Diamler Jeep is somehow just as good overall. Your body on Frame Cherokee drives like crap on the road-FACT. I mean I could list all the reasons why a newer more innovative Jeep excels in almost every category but as evidence by your last reply it would be pointless.

      Oh and guess what, I too am a Jeep guy and belong to many jeep forums and I go offroading with my friends when ever I get the chance.

      So why again are you here making a fuss? Please tell me you aren't one of those pretentious Jeep snobs that looks down at any thing modern jeep.
      You know the type that goes on about there obsolete, outdated, gas guzzling and mediocre performance that even a Toyota Camary puts to shame, Straight Six AMC design.

      What is sad about the Jeep community is 1/4 if them are there own worst enemy. Why can't you just appreciate the brand and the fact that the Wrangler is still in very high demand thanks to the bread and butter from the SUV line

Never mind the horrible fuel economy, poor/outdated engine performance, terrible road manners+handling, less comfort, more cabin noise , I mean the list goes on. I'm happy your 2000 Cherokee is still running but the reality is you must not have ever driven it much. The average person is ready to move to a new vehicle every 5-8 years and if you are a Toyota owner with those Half million mile engines I could see 12 years.

      Mike Jones In reply to Christian Thompson

      +David Grothen 3.2 unacceptable? Then you claim it was all high end power? That is not how the Pentastar works. The Penatstar is an interesting engine since it deleivers 98% of all it's torque in the low end. Yet you claim the power is all in the high end. You realize that the power of an engine is called Torque and the hp is sort of like how fast it delivers that torque. As mentioned by Stryker, if you look at a Dyno(that is where a car is put on a device with rollers to test it's HP and Torque.) it proves that the V6 delivers 98% of it's torque across the spectrum evenly at the low end. What more could you ask for since most engines in 20-40 thousand dollar cars require that you get the rpm's up high before the grunt of the Torque is delivered.


      Go look at any review of the 2.0 vs V6 and you will see that the difference isn't dramatic. Also the V6 is a proven and reliable engine while the 2.0 is brand new and unproven. It took Mercedes and then over to FCA, 7 years(2014) to make the Pentastar what it is today. This is usually the same for many other engines used from the competition.

      +David Grothen What are you talking about. The V6 has linear and consistent full Torque across the spectrum @1,500-4000 RPM. Not to mention it's a proven and tried engine that lasts. The 2.0 Turbo is new, unproven and we all know Turbo's reduce the lifespan of the engine and causes more issues down the line. Just ask Toyota since this is why they refuse to build or add turbo's to there engines. Turbo is a cheap tactic to please the EPA. Ask any mechanic regarding engines in general, Inline 4 or V6 and they will always tell you to go with the V6.

      We ordered a new Cherokee in June of 2015. It is at 80,000 km now and not one issue, we love it. I highly recommend one. Just a note in Canada the lower cost ones are called Sport, then the North, and then the Limited. A Tailhawk is also available. Also, the Cherokee is a heavier vehicle that an Escape, RAV4, and CRV. It is not fair to compare them. We found the Cherokee is much quieter inside. I would choose the V6 over the 4 cylinder, on the highway there is little difference in fuel economy.
