Exterior – 2019 Jeep Cherokee

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee’s split lighting is no longer available. Now, on the 2019 model, you will find solid eagle-eyed headlights for better visibility.

Many drivers loved the forward front design, but some felt it was a bit too much. Therefore, Jeep has installed a new front fascia in the 2019 model for a better look.

Jeep has responded to many requests by upgrading the engine. Some might view it as a downgrade because the 2019 model decreases the amount of horsepower it produces. The numbers went from 184 HP to 180 HP. This change was probably done to increase overall off-road performance. Slower means more control. Customers have the choice of getting the 2 liter turbocharged engine running on 4 cylinders that produces 270 horsepower. Lightweight materials provide better driving dynamics with a direct injection and 56 more pounds of torque than the 2018 version. There is also a nine-speed automatic transmission for controlling the FWD and AWD. The Trailhawk has all-new skid plates that protect the underside and a raised height to accommodate the 17-inch wheels sporting the off-road tires. Overland has chrome tow hooks installed while the Trailhawk has better looking red hooks that are bright enough to see at night.
