Here’s the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Redesign & Changes vs 2018 Jeep Cherokee

The past couple of years has seen the biggest changes in the Jeep Cherokee SUV since its return to Poughkeepsie, New York a few years ago. The 2018 edition revised to model lineup to the Latitude, Latitude Plus, Trailhawk, Limited & Overland to give you more upgraded features for your money.

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee also introduced Amazon Alexa as a Uconnect skill through the Latitude's Tech Connect Package. This skill enables you to:

  • Start & stop the engine via voice commands
  • Lock & unlock the car doors
  • Send commands directly to NAV-equipped models
  • Monitor the vehicle’s vitals like the fuel capacity and tire pressure level

In addition to Alexa, you can also get an Amazon Echo Dot device and 3-month memberships to the Amazon Music Unlimited Family Plan and Audible when choosing this option. The Tech Connect Package was foreshadowing to the many updates that you can get in the 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

Something New Under the Hood

Both engines from the 2018 Cherokee, the 2.4L Tigershark MultiAir 4-cylinder and the 3.2L Pentastar V6, are still offered for the 2019 edition. However, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee introduces a 3rd engine option: the all-new 2.0L direct-injection turbocharged inline 4-cylinder that delivers 270 horsepower (nearly equal to the V6) and 295 lb/ft of torque.

In terms of performance, you can get fuel economy rated at up to an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city, making it the most gas-saving Cherokee engine in the lineup. The engine stop-start technology that’s onboard minimizes greenhouse gas emissions to help improve your carbon footprint.

The 9-speed automatic transmission that’s in the other 2 engines also come in this all-new option as well to help with efficiency.
