What’s New for the 2019 Jeep Cherokee?

The Jeep Cherokee’s powertrain has undergone a complete transformation for 2019. This year’s model comes with an all-new available 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Jeep introduced the engine to provide a strong, durable engine — 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque — with improved fuel economy when compared to the V6. The engine also improves the Cherokee’s 0-to-60 time.

The front of the Jeep Cherokee got a redesign for 2019 with a brand new front fascia and lightweight aluminum hood. The 2019 Cherokee also comes with premium bi-LED projector headlamps, daytime running lamps, and fog lamps.

But despite its front redesign, you can rest assured that the new Cherokee will sport the iconic Jeep grille.

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is available in six exterior colors: Blue Shade, Sting-Grey, Velvet Red, Firecracker Red, Olive Green, Hydro Blue, Light Brownstone, Granite Crystal, Billet Silver, Diamond Black Crystal, Pearl White, and Bright White.
