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

      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.

      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.

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

      about 10 months 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.

      It's a SUV why the hell would you want a sport mode??? You want sport get a sport sedan. Good grief. 271HP isn't enough? The 2.0L turbo isn't worth it. No significant fuel efficiency benefits. The Grand Cherokee with the HEMI is well over $50k so the argument for an alternative to the KL is absolutely absurd, seriously you are ways off.

      about 11 months ago
      DJAZTHETAFREQ In reply to Przemek Lodej

      The 2 liter turbo makes 70 more ftlb of torque than the 3.2 V6 and is 160 lbs lighter. It gets 2 more miles to the gallon as well. The handling benefits of a lighter engine make a huge difference as I have driven both. As for 2.0t SUVs .... you don't follow the industry much. They dominate now and are amazing frankly. Audi, FCA, BMW all use them. Tows 4000 lbs and hey 29 mpg. That is worth the $500 upcharge. It sounds great at idle and crusing but a bit rough around town.

      Larry Smith In reply to Przemek Lodej

      You're an idiot. The turbo makes more torque and more importantly turbocharged engines lose less power with altitude increases than normally aspirated or supercharged engines. If you live in a sea level shithole, the V6 is fine. At 5000 feet, you're down 15%, 10000 ft. 30%.

      Yesterday being Sunday, I took a ride to a couple of dealers on central L.I. N.Y. who's websites showed 2019 Jeep Overlands in stock. The rep. at the dealer in Patchogue was not fluent in what the incentive was, nor was he aware that there was a vehicle in the back of his lot. I searched and located it myself (looked like it had been through a dust storm and seagull attack). Next I drove to Smith Haven, where customers were sitting in a cramped showroom apparently waiting for their turn to see a salesperson. I caught the ear of an employee outside, asked where all the new stock was. The reply was "scattered in various locations up and down the main thoroughfare. "Stop inside, wait and see a sales person who could drive you to find the car." Last Sunday, in the freezing cold, I drove to the (closed on Sunday) Southampton dealership to search for their Overland which was nowhere to be found although appearing on their website. Spoke with representatives at Jeep, including an incentive specialist last week to find that they both stated they have nothing to do with the Jeep Corporation website. I asked them to "pass up the food chain" that the calculations involving incentives not only change from day to day, but don't sync up as one traverses from web page to web page. Furthermore, the corporate website seems to never be in sync with dealer websites. So the answer if buying a car is to visit a dealer. For me, that is going to a low pressure dealership like the loyal one I have been a customer to since the early 70's (Mullen Motors, Southold, N.Y.). All their vehicles are lined up "neatly" by brand and type with window stickers on each in a modest lot. That's one of the reasons why they have been voted #1 in the country buy their customers. Additionally, they provide the best service around - customer satisfaction first.

      FCA dealers have really dropped to low quality, it is the same all over. Jammed lots and hard to get a sales person. The incentives are terrific though. If the could somehow get their reliability to match the higher prices they would see Jeep print money. They are so close but cannot seem to get the basics to last for 100k. Even Ford figured that out.
