How Has the Jeep Cherokee Changed for 2019?

The return of the Cherokee nameplate a few years ago was greeted by celebration among the Jeep faithful. The Cherokee name has earned a steadfast following in the decades since its inception, after all.

After a few years of production, Jeep has decided to give the Cherokee a light update. Rather than redesign the vehicle from scratch, Jeep has reworked specific aspects of the Cherokee to please drivers.

First, let's take a look at what remains the same. Underneath, the 2019 Cherokee is unchanged. It uses the same architecture as before and retains the original 2.4-liter Tigershark and 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 engine options.

The most noticeable difference is up front. The 2019 Cherokee sports a reworked fascia with headlamps located further up near the seven-slot grille. Through some simple rearrangement, the Cherokee's rear cargo capacity has also been expanded to 54.9 cubic feet with the back seats folded down.

Another exciting development for the 2019 Cherokee is the addition of a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine option. This power plant makes 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. It's good for 4,000 pounds of towing and up to 31 mpg highway.

Stop by Suburban Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Garden City to see the updated 2019 Cherokee for yourself.
