If you are thinking about buying a Mid-Sized crossover SUV, the Jeep Cherokee makes a lot of sense especially is you are going off-road. The Traihawk is immensely capable in the dirt.

Jeep has made several changes to the 2019 Cherokee for this mid-cycle refresh. Prices range from $24,545 for the base Latitude FWD trim up to $37,995 for the Overland 4x4. The model seen here is the Trailhawk 4x4 which starts at $33,695. The updated front styling is more in-line with the rest of the Jeep line-up like the Compass and Grand Cherokee.

Under the hood is the $500 optional turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque. This engine is faster and more fuel efficient than the 3.2 liter V-6. The transmission is a 9-speed automatic.

The Trailhawk has a number of key distinguishing characteristics that make this one of the few crossovers on the market that can truly go off-road. The redesigned front and rear bumpers allow for improved approach and departure angles. This model also has an off-road tuned suspension and a raised ride height giving you 8.7 inches of ground clearance. You also get Jeep’s Active Drive Lock AWD system that includes a rear locking differential and low range gearing.

      4:04 Well okay, that's what the sales video says, but what it also does is it attracts more heat into the engine bay, which is exactly what you'd want to prevent. I'd rather have a bit of glare off road than pulling in more heat into the engine bay anytime the sun shines. Good review otherwise.

      MotorScotti I hardly think the decal on the hood is adding any significant heat to the engine bay. Mine runs cool as a cucumber whether its sunny or not. Sheesh, some people will think of any stupid thing to try to refute a youtube video.

      Can you explain why all different engines have the same fuel consumption?. I had the 3.6 v6 pentastar grandcherokee... Now I have a 2.4 tigershark 2015 cherokee (4wd) and you tell the 2.0 turbo has 22 mpg... All the same... So whats the benefit of smaller engines?!

      it has more torque and is lighter.... so better handling I also believe the turbo i4 has a wider torque band and show up with a much faster 0-60 speed

      I picked up my 19 Wrangler Sahara Majito Green a month ago. I LOVE it. I had a Kia Sorento and my wife a Mazda CX-5. On Saturday we're picking up her new 19 Cherokee Limited with Technology package. 2 Jeeps.. I would NEVER have thought. Always Japanese or Korean. Screw practical, I wanted a top of the line Wrangler and my wife a Cherokee. Like so many people say, you only live once. So we think.

      I have a '16 Trailhawk. If I could only own one car in the world, it's the Trailhawk - warts an' all. I am a hunter. I don't look for offroad. Most of the time, I am on pavement. But here is a car that can handle offroad when I run into it, and behave nicely when I'm driving around like everybody else.

      Cherokees are fwd/AWD now?

      about 1 year ago
    • Heath Weber
      Heath Weber In reply to Umbrace Titan

      Actually, you cant switch. They are always in on demand four wheel, with a FWD bias. In other words, if the car is driving normally, it will basically be FWD. If it senses a loss of traction, it will kick power to the rear. The Trailhawk also has 4x4 low, which is full time 4x4, and a rear diff locker that locks both rear wheels together.

      All the changes to the 2019 Cherokee are definite improvements even the cosmetic design changes. And if indeed Jeep has worked out all the bugs with the nine speed transmission, then this is a definite contender. But I won’t buy one till I’m fairly sure of that.

      Nice summary about the car, though the front and rear changes you criticised were highlights that prompted me to buy a 2019. Sold my 2016 Cherokee Trailhawk to buy a 2019 back in March, something I thought I'd never do in my life, sell a car after only a couple years. "You only live once," was my rationalization. Anyway, very pleased with my stock 2019 Cherokee Trailhawk Elite, no regrets. Handles great on unpaved roads in nearby national forests and amazing on sketchy unpaved roads around Death Valley NP, dry or muddy. Plus very comfortable rides on highways and freeways getting to those destinations.
