Jeep Cherokee 2019 – Updated car gets fresh new design and more efficient engines

Jeep Cherokee 2019

The new Jeep Cherokee 2019 has debuted at the Detroit Auto show 2018.

It has launched with an updated design that greatly improves its styling, when compared with the outgoing car.

Among the styling upgrades is an all-new front fascia, hood, LED headlamps, daylight running lamps and fog lamps.

The updated fascia is perhaps the best update of the new car giving it a rounder, smoother and more appealing front-end design.

It is also an update that makes the car fit in more closely with the rest of the current model range.

In addition to this, there are five new wheel designs which include a 19-inch Overland set and a lightweight handsfree power lift gate.

A number of new powertrain options have been added to the Cherokee.

These include, an all-new 2.0-liter direct-injection turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque.

This unit is equipped with nine stop-start (ESS) technology to optimise fuel economy and minimise greenhouse gas emissions.

At the top of the range is the 3.2-litre Pentastar V-6 engine with ESS technology delivers 271 horsepower and 239 lb.-ft. of torque and best-in-class towing capability of 4,500 lbs.
