The saying goes, “Out with the old, and in with the new.” But when it comes to a new model, what if you want to keep some of the old? The new 2019 Jeep® Cherokee solves this dilemma by keeping the best features of previous Jeep models, while adding upgraded driving features and a frontend facelift that’s been turning heads. If you’re looking for new Jeep models near Woodbridge, NJ, come into Sansone Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM, and check out the newest in crossover SUVs.
Let’s start with the obvious. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee has a re-designed nose that drivers have found particularly appealing. Gone are the squinty headlights, which have been replaced by a fuller frontend look reminiscent of previous models.
What’s really impressive is under this new exterior. Pop open the hood, and you’ll find a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, producing 170 lb-ft of torque and 180 horsepower with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The engine upgrade remains: a 3.2 liter V6 cranking out 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft torque. Jeep has added a new engine option, though, in the form of a 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharge inline-4 engine that delivers 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.
Along with its standard terrain traction control system, the Jeep Cherokee allows drivers to choose between three different four-wheel-drive systems, capable of handling both the morning commute and a weekend outdoor getaway. Active Drive I comes standard and is fully automatic. Active Drive II has a two-speed power transfer unit that includes low range and torque management, and Active Drive Lock adds a locking rear differential for better off-road handling.
With all this power and off-road capability, the creators of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee have not forgotten about fuel efficiency. With an estimated 23 mpg city and 31 mpg highway, you won’t be sacrificing at the pump, whether going to work or taking a summer road trip.
