It seems that the 2019 Jeep Cherokee will indeed get a fresh update, and that news by itself was enough to get us excited. Although automakers tend to vary a bit when they say update, we prefer t think of this ‘update’ as a makeover and are so looking forward to the same, as the new model is all set to be launched soon. Either way, the news got us going and soon we were searching for any information we could locate on the new model, from images to rumors and interviews and after analyzing the lot, we have got enough to prep this review for your convenience. So, let’s get to it, shall we?
This would be the first time since its debut in 2014 that the jeep would be getting a new makeover, but for what it’s worth, 2019 Jeep Cherokee certainly looks great and it seems to have been worth the wait. The new model comes with the same trims as before; the new Cherokee model comes with trail hawk, Cherokee in Latitude, Latitude plus, limited and Overland trims. Naturally, we expect each trim model to be physically distinct from each other, which only makes us all the more eager to take a look at the new model.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Jeep Cherokee comes with better-LED headlights than the odd six-eyed look that we had to tolerate until now; the new LED headlights are a lot better and make the jeep look normal.These headlights are integrated with LED daytime running lights, as well as Fog lights which are placed slightly below. The front fascia is more distinct now, with sculpted features but it still retains a smidgen of the old look that it is still instantly recognizable as a Cherokee.
The rear end gets the same treatment as the front but the side panels are more or less the same. It comes with three all-wheel-drive systems and is certainly outfitted for “off the road” trips. It has slightly larger wheelbase and wider tires, which should provide you with safe transport across most terrain and even in inclement weather.
This car comes with a seven-slat angled grille, the same as last year’s model but with the brand new front fascia and lights, it certainly works to enhance the new look. Some of the trims like trail hawk come with blacked out bumpers, wheel flares and even a black hood insert which certainly makes this trim stand out from the others.
The 2019 Jeep Cherokee comes with an updated interior; it comes with cooled and heated driver’s seat with plush padding and plush upholstery inside the jeep. It still contains a lot of plastic on the inside but this time around, it is tastefully done.
The dash curves very well and is nicely dressed up with the instrument cluster within easy reach along with a large touchscreen infotainment system, retuned steering wheel, along with an enhanced suspension which should provide you with a sweet ride.
