Whether you’re commuting or vacationing, the 2019 Jeep® Cherokee will provide you with powerful, agile performance. Its muscular powertrain options, dependable handling and all-terrain capabilities won’t let you down.
The 2019 Jeep® Cherokee provides three capable, powerful engine options. The 2.4-liter Tigershark® MultiAir® 2 comes standard. It makes 180 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque, and it’s capable of towing up to 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. The available 3.2-liter Pentastar® V6 delivers 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. In combination with special towing equipment, this engine can tow up to 4,500 pounds. Finally, there’s an available 2.0-liter turbo engine, which offers 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque along with 4,000 pounds of towing capability. Each of these engines comes paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The 2019 Jeep® Cherokee provides sure-footed handling in driving situations of all kinds. Its Jeep® Active Drive I 4x4 system works with the Selec-Terrain® Traction Management System to provide stability and agility no matter the road conditions. Selec-Terrain® adjusts the Cherokee’s performance based on four standard selectable modes — Auto, Sport, Snow and Sand/Mud. The Cherokee is also equipped with several other standard features that enhance handling. Independent front and rear suspensions, All Speed Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control, Trailer Sway Damping and Electronic Roll Mitigation keep the Cherokee under control even when the surrounding conditions aren’t cooperating.
If you’re looking for proven off-road performance, the 2019 Jeep® Cherokee’s Trailhawk® and Trailhawk® Elite trims are the way to go. The Trailhawk® is designed with a 1-inch suspension lift for higher ground clearance, skid plates and tighter maneuverability to help it tackle challenging terrain. It’s equipped with an upgraded Active Drive Lock 4x4 system that includes a mechanical rear axle lock and a Selec-Terrain® Rock mode for especially rugged conditions. The Trailhawk® also features special sealing and a higher air intake so it can drive through up to 19 inches of water.
The 2019 Jeep® Cherokee is an SUV you can count on. It’s equally at home on the highway or off the beaten path, it handles reliably in the roughest of conditions and it’s built to deliver rugged power and towing capability when you need them most.
