      Charokee trailhawk owner want to get lift the car
      If only jeep manufacturer design a bigger tire, a higher lift intended for trailhawk, it will be a big plus for the jeep cherokee trailhawk.

      I wouldn't mind having a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk for selling one with a turbo that's fine but also would buy the V6 Trailhawk I just had to choose between one of those two

      Why isn’t anyone doing a review on the slightly more affordable Latitude Plus?

      Jeep is hitting the market of those who want utility with creature comforts without the flashy name badge. This is a HUGE demand in 2nd and 3rd world emerging markets where European brands are too dangerous for some to drive.

      More plastic, less steel, more cheap electronic gadgets and gimmicks and less quality.
      ........
      They use a new refrigerant that catches fire, a plastic tailgate
      that is easily breached by a rear impact, and it uses soy based
      wiring that rats and squirrels love to eat.
      ........
      They burn more oil than grandpa's old Rambler so you need to buy oil by the case.

      Someone here has no idea how cars are built. You actually believed that crossover tailgates actually do anything for safety in a crash? Make it out of AR500 steel and it still wont make a lick of difference.

      I was looking to get a 2019 Cherokee, but my spouse said no as she knew others with Jeep problems (Liberty) ended up with a Ford Edge. BTW we have the same name! Do you have any relatives in Wisconsin? We may be related some how...

      Another question is the 2.0L Turbo I-4 that’s in the Cherokee the same engine as the Alfa Romeo Stelvio? (De-tuned 10 hp?).

      Detroit area dealers are selling the 2019 Trailhawk Elite (loaded) for around $30,000. I've leased the previous generation (2016) Cherokee and that transmission is smooth as silk. Plus the gearing on freeway driving yielded well over 25mpg at 75mph, as the RPM's were in the 1500-1700 range at that speed. Arguably one of the best buys in that price range for an all-weather SUV.

      The Trailhawk is around $30,000 plus tax in the Detroit area. And that's with the $3000 "Elite" package which includes dual front power seats plus a bunch of other options. Arguably the best value out there for a small SUV that's got this kind of performance. I leased a 16 Cherokee Limited, loaded, with the 3.2 and was impressed with the performance of the engine and the 9 spd trans, which worked flawlessly. Gas mileage was good too: 20mpg around town and near 28 on the Freeway.

      Another great review, Steve. I appreciate how you give attention to a vehicle's off-road prowess in approximate proportion to the degree with which its drivers are likely to use those capabilities, and don't neglect to discuss how a capable off-road vehicle will function as a daily driver.

      Crap, it's gone up another $5k from just a few years ago.. 1st was avail at $30k, then the renegade showed up and the Cherokee TH jumped to $35k; now w/the compass it jumps another $5k. Thx but no thx. Jeep is going to price themselves out of sight. Does this mean GC and Wrangler prices are up too? Well I never saw a jeep in my future but I doubt I'm not missing much. Cheers.

      $26k is too much for a base model Cherokee. Jeep has become too expensive across their entire model range and has lost the uniqueness that always made them stand out above others.

      I owned a 4Runner once and I had to get rid of it within a few months because of all the problems it had. I currently own a 2014 Cherokee Trailhawk and after over four years of hard driving, on and off road, it has not needed a single repair.

      Trevor Doyle In reply to Trevor Doyle

      Billy Sou and I would take the Toyota because it fulfils what I value most in a car. Reliability. I am willing to trade a little refinement and tech for the knowledge that I will have to put my car in my will because it is going to last that long and then some. I cannot say that about a Jeep or any other FCA product.

      Billy Sou In reply to Trevor Doyle

      The 4Runner would be the Grand Cherokee’s more rival based on size and to the Wrangler in off-road capability. And I would take the Grand Cherokee due to the fact the 4Runner looks so dated currently. However, it’s off-road chops is just as capable as any Trailhawk edition of Jeep or Wrangler.

      I know two people that have cherokees and they both hate them due to some very questionable reliability. One leaked water in through the sun roof and another kept having to take theirs back to the dealer because the infotainment kept breaking.
