One of the joys of being a Jeep® dealership is the annual arrival of the Jeep Cherokee at Mann Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT of Richmond. Each year outdoes the year before it, and the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is no exception.
The 2019 Jeep Cherokee shares a lot with the model it’s replacing. The familiar lines — now with more of a pronounced family resemblance to the Jeep Compass and Jeep Grand Cherokee — are back. So are the same engine choices, though we suggest the 271 horsepower V6 engine over the smaller 184 four-cylinder engine; the power difference is pronounced.
There’s also quite a bit that’s new. It starts with not one, but two, new trims. The Limited X trim gets distinct front and rear fascias, a striking black interior, and a number of trim-specific accents. There’s also a new Overland trim, which simply piles luxury features atop the usual strengths we’ve come to expect from new Jeep SUVs.
Much of the technology is also updated. This includes a refreshed UConnect infotainment system (which, we’re happy to report, includes Android Auto™ and Apple Car Play™). Even more important are the updated safety features. Familiar features like ParkSense, ParkView, and LaneSense Departure Warning are back. But we’re also seeing a new Plus designation on the Forward Collision Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control features, denoting improved performance over previous iterations.
Going off-road? This Jeep SUV won’t disappoint, especially if you opt for the rough-and-ready Trail Rated Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Towing? With the right trim and tow package, you can tow a maximum 4,500 pounds. There’s a lot more to see, but you’re better off seeing it in a showroom, or getting behind the wheel, instead of pixel-peeping.
