The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is a compact SUV with enough power to make it an excellent off-road vehicle. When you need to tow a heavy payload, the Cherokee doesn't disappoint, with a V6 engine that can pull up to 4,500 pounds. The Jeep Cherokee's incredible versatility is one of the reasons it's a popular model at dealerships like the Niles Jeep dealer.
For 2019, the Jeep Cherokee gets refreshed styling that features a redesigned front end that aligns more closely to the attractive looks of the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Compass. The folks at the Niles Jeep dealership tell us that customers enjoy the Cherokee's updated interior, which now has higher-quality materials, a storage bin for phones and additional room for cargo. Also new is an available 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
The automotive press gives the 2019 Jeep Cherokee positive reviews, with the experts at Motor Trend writing: "By eliminating the polarizing front end, introducing a new engine, smoothing out the transmission, and adding desirable features including Apple CarPlay, the 2019 refresh has done a great job of sanding off the Cherokee's rough edges and improving its mass-market appeal."
