of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee. Base trim shown.
Just one week after the updated 2019 Jeep Cherokee made its debut at the 2018 Detroit auto show, I got the chance to get behind the wheel to see how those changes translate to the road.
Our preview has a more detailed rundown of the 2019 Cherokee's changes, which are comprehensive. The exterior styling has been reworked to make the Cherokee appear more conventionally Jeep-esque, similar to the Compass and Grand Cherokee. There is also updated technology, improved cabin materials and a brand-new optional engine.
The changes are nice, but what held the previous model back in my mind was value. It was just too expensive to compete with like-sized and -featured competitors. Along with a chance to get behind the wheel, Jeep also announced pricing for the Cherokee's five trim levels (Latitude, Latitude Plus, Limited, Overland and Trailhawk).
The Cherokee's most exciting addition is under the hood. Joining the two carryover engines from last year is a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder (out of the Alfa Romeo Giulia) that makes 270 horsepower and 295 pounds-feet of torque. The other two engines are a 180-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder making 171 pounds-feet of torque and a 271-hp, 3.2-liter V-6 making 239 pounds-feet of torque. All three engines are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
