The all new 2019 Jeep Cherokee is here and Jeep has kindly given me the top of the line Overland trim. In this video review I talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the facelifted Cherokee, and I also go in depth about the Active Drive system that might seem confusing to buyers looking for an all-wheel drive midsize crossover

**CORRECTION** The Stelvio comes with an 8 speed transmission from ZF

      Thanks for a great review. Some others gave nasty comments about the review, I will try to help without the snide remarks. It is true that you spent too much time on the workings of the 4x4. It IS important, but you need to condense it. And you tend to show yourself while driving and talking; you may consider doing that with a voice-over while showing MUCH more of the interior (things like the stereo systems, more on the 8 inch u connect, etc. etc. ). In short, much less of you and more images and video of the vehicle and talking about sound, tow etc. packages available as well as real world considerations of gas mileage, engine differences, warranty coverages, etc.. Again tho, pretty well done, thank you.

      You can program the driver heated seat and wheel to turn on with the car if it is below 41 degrees and it will do that when you remote start it with the Key Fob or the Uconnect app (if you have the 4c/4c with nave), and the vented seats can be set to auto turn on when it is 80 or above outside and it will do that with remote start to (again wither activated through the key fob or the app) Sport mode dose change the shift point and pattern in addition to the 4x4 split (I own a 2019 Trailhawk elite) The point of a Jeep is not to be an Alfa, it dose not have an electronic suspension, so there would be nothing to change.

      The seat color is great, yet you are not really rolling unless the cup holders are illuminated. Try putting the auto button on then setting the climate to your likes. When you turn the Overland on using the remote start the seat warmers and heated steering wheel will turn on. What type of tires did your Jeep Cherokee come with. The tires are holding the road well.

      In regards to your comment on the throttle response, my 19' cherokee limited has the 3.2 v6 and when in sport mode, the throttle response is dramatically increased in my opinion. Might just be the engine option in your model.

      I know it's the cool thing to do in reviews to bring up 4 year old problems on something that has been fixed for 3 or more years now. There is nothing wrong with the 9 speed transmission, it doesn't have problems shirting or being responsive that's all in the programming. I have a Chrysler 200s with the same Transmission (well its the 2wd version but still) It has the sport mode you like and when I pop it into that it is very responsive both the throttle and the shift, it downshifts instantly sometimes 3 or 4 gears in a snap (it also tightens the steering). So again your beef with the Cherokee isn't the transmission it's the lack of real sport mode.

      We own a 2019 Overland Cherokee. In the settings, you can program the heated steering wheel and seats upon start. This is an awesome Jeep. We've had several Grands but decided to downsize but didn't want to sacrifice some of the luxuries and the Overland fit the bill perfectly. We love it!

      I have a 2017 Cherokee Trailhawk and cannot stand not having separate buttons for the heater and cooled seats. At least I can drag them down to access them any time, but in the summer I have to switch to the cooled and so on. I also have no issue using my gloves to change anything. Did the 20019 change the screen so you have to use your finger? As for the transmission mine was tweeked over 4 times until I didn't get totally jerked around, but I am still not a fan of it. Good review though! Thanks.

      Obvious mistakes as other have mentioned about the 3.6 vs 3.2 liter engine and 10 speed trans, etc. Also, no mention of the Trail Hawk Elite package.

      My Trailhawk has an "Auto-On Comfort Mode" which turns the heated steering wheel and heated driver's seat on automatically once it's 40 degrees out. You can even specify remote starts only or all starts. It seems to work even while you're driving as well.

      Worst car you will need a lot of maintenance after 5 years only one time per month at least it will breakdown

      Great review and nice to see the Overland with Napa as local dealers only have black black and black. I agree the price is closing into X3 territory..and that is a tough comparison. The 2018 19 X3 is gorgeous and handles perfectly much better suspension and engine and of course even fancier. I think there are incentives though so a $42k Jeep Cherokee overland probably out the door for 37 new. Question: Did you use the auto engine shutoff? That is how they get it to combined 25mpg. It's not bad on this car. Thanks!

      43k ??? My 2018 Grand Cherokee Laredo E cost me $30 k out the door! Anybody buying this Cherokee Overland for $40K could expect to lose $20k in depreciation the day they drove it off the lot. Also I am not a fan of unproven tiny turbo 4 engines pulling around heavy utility vehicles how long do you think that engine will last out in the real world with hit or miss maintenance? Luckily a normal aspirated 3.2 v-6 is available I still think FCA will need another 1-2 years to fix the issues of the 9 speed and make it shift as nice as the 8 speed in my Laredo.

      I just leased my Cherokee Overland for $42,700 with a risidual buyout at the end of 23,700. So yeah it's depreciating by 19k but that's over 3 years and putting 36k miles on it. As someone who works in the industry, I can tell you that a $40-50k SUV will typically depreciate by that much over the first three years regardless of make with the exception of Wranglers.

      I see TWO Sport Modes -- one the in the Select Terrain and another by sliding the Transmission to Left of Drive Gear and make the Cherokee Semi-Auto. To get everything that you have on the Overland in a Grand Cherokee, the price is $50K for Luxury II Package (to get the Dual Pane Sunroof) and Advanced Safety Package. The Grand Cherokee Summit that you showed is about $55K for V6. The Cherokee V6 is a V-config and not Inline. It is also 3.2L V6 and not the 3.6L V6 that come in many Fiat-Chrysler-Automobiles like the Grand Cherokee, 300, Durango, Charger, Challenger, and Wrangler.

      You should work on your facts before you post a video. The 3.6 v6 isn't available in the Cherokee, it's a 3.2. I stopped watching after you said the Alfa Romeo Stelvio had a 10 speed ZF transmission. ZF doesn't make a 10 speed. Your dislikes are subjective and total BS. Review a Toyota, I'm sure you'll have nothing bad to say about it because you're just one more automotive "journalist" who's a brainwashee.
