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

      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.

      This is not a car it's a Jeep Cherokee. All the luxury brand suvs have a sport button, but they handle much more like cars than trucks.

      Its possible they could adjust the firmware to alter the shifting and sport mode. The best thing would be to tune it yourself.

      Can you use regular 87 octane fuel in the new 2.0 Turbo engine?

      about 1 year ago
      DJAZTHETAFREQ In reply to Nick F

      It is turbocharged high compression. Yes premium fuel is required or it will knock. And drop power way down. No seriously turbocharged car runs on regular gas.

      They say it takes “premium” but who’s really gonna put that in a Cherokee... it shouldn’t be over 89 grade if anything. Premium in an American car is nuts. Even the super expensive Cadillac XT5 takes regular unleaded.. just because it’s a turbo 4 it needs premium...? I don’t agree with that.

      $42k for luxury trim on this to be honest is not bad. consider my dealer gave me the new BMW X2 XDrive 28i for a loaner vehicle last weekend and that MSRP is at $42,750 with just the convenience pkg (keyless entry, heated seat/steering wheel, lumbar support) and that was it. It also didn't drive any different than the X1. the only thing surprising was the X2 actually has good rear leg room.

      X2 is nice but is in reality a station wagon. The Jeep really will handle snow and bumps.
