Time to distill all the hype about the new Jeep Cherokee. Here are the truly impotant features for 2019 and what they mean to you. Is the new 2.0L TDIG engine the best engine for you or should you stick to the super fuel efficient 2.4L TigerShark, or the tried and true 3.2L V-6.

      I bought it in July. The tranny is fine no issues at all. The handling and ride quality is great I love it. I want to see how it handles in the snow this year

      How do like the on-road handling of the Cherokee so far? Still happy you bought it? Is the transmission still behaving?

      Other than the quality and comfort and ride and handling. It would be the ability to go both on road and off and knowing my Jeep can get me where I want to go.

      Bob Quattrini then just keep your miled out the booty current Jeep and hush. If you don’t want a new one it’s simple, don’t buy one. Nobody really cares about your opinion anyway.

      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!

      Gloucester, Ma is where I live and what side of the pumps you pull up at is not regulated, it's 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.

      I have a 2017 Cherokee with V-6 and get 23-25 MPG around town and 33 MPG on the highway. I still don't like the 9 speed trans. as it is too many gears for this small of car. Got power to tow but the trans can't figure out what gear it's suppose to be in. They can get rid of the start-stop feature as I get better mileage with it off.

      I like what Jeep has done with the 2019 model. I'm somewhat concerned with the integrity of the 9 speed auto transmission

      At a dealer in the suburbs of Chicago. The key was that I scoped out exactly what I wanted during the last few days of the month, then on the last day of the month, a few hours before they closed, I went back to deal. Seeing that they were expecting 2019s to arrive any day and the Sales reps wanted to make his numbers, it turned out to be an excellent strategy. Also, my trade had low miles and I paid cash.

      I know Jeep calls this a midsize SUV, but for all intents and purposes, its a compact SUV. If you want midsize, you want the Grand Cherokee.

      Yep. The cargo capacity and interior volume is significantly, and I mean significantly smaller than the new CRV and even the new 2019 Forester and Rav4. The Cherokee is indeed a compact SUV with a rather smaller cargo hold and footprint albeit it with real off-road potential.

      Jeep has introduced a new inline four cylinder engine for the Cherokee. Memories of the underpowered four's of the past still leave me feeling queasy. Are you be ready drive a four-banger 4x4 SUV or is a six-cylinder your engine of choice?

      I own the 4, and its a major upgrade to the 6. Little buzzy at high speed, but the 6 cant touch it for power and speed, not to mention the savings in gas. You wont be disappointed.

      The advertised numbers on the 2 liter turbo are actually quite impressive. It has more torque than the V6.
