The new 2019 Jeep Cherokee made its debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show boasting a new design, along with the addition of an all-new, advanced 2.0-liter direct-injection inline four-cylinder engine that enhances performance and fuel efficiency. It comes with a choice of three innovative 4x4 systems: Jeep Active Drive I, Jeep Active Drive II and Jeep Active Drive Lock, which have been enhanced for unmatched 4x4 capability for all weather conditions. The rear-axle disconnect technology results in reduced energy loss when 4x4 capability isn’t needed, while improving fuel efficiency.
Under the bonnet, the all-new 2.0-liter direct injection turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine with Start&Stop joins the 3.2-liter Pentastar V-6 and 2.4-liter PZEV Multiair2 Tigershark I-4 available in the Cherokee lineup. All engine options can be fitted to the nine-speed automatic transmission.
The new Cherokee features an extensive new exterior design that highlights a completely fresh appearance and includes a major restyling of a number of signature components such as the front fascia, bonnet, LED headlamps, daylight running lamps and fog lamps. The updated interior receives a fresh touch with new Satin Chrome and Piano Black high-gloss accents while remaining a practical and comfortable environment.
It will be introduced in Europe in the second half of 2018. More detailed product specifications for the vehicles offered in the European region will be available closer to commercial launch.
