The Refreshed 2019 Jeep Cherokee Brings Many New Features to Brockport Area Drivers

The Jeep Cherokee has remained a strong contender in the compact crossover segment and is easily the most capable pick. For the 2019 model year it received an appreciated refresh, and designers left no stone unturned. We at Castilone Chrysler Dodge Jeep are going to review the changes on the 2019 Jeep Cherokee and give a brief overview of the various trim levels. Then when you come into our Batavia, NY showroom you'll have a solid idea of which trims you want to take out on a test drive and speak with our finance center team about! Ready? Let's get started.

Changes Under the Hood for Performance Around Albion, NY

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee still has a 3.2L V6 engine with 271 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque and a 2.4L with 180 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. The previous Cherokee's engine lineup was missing an option with high amounts of torque, which is why there's now an all-new 2.0L turbocharged engine! It has 270 horsepower- one less than the V6-but the torque comes in at 295 lb-ft. The added torque is perfect if you want to tow up to 4,500 pounds, plan on regularly having a car full of passengers and their gear, or just like having additional getup when driving around a busy town like Clarence, NY.

The turbocharged engine comes with an 8-speed transmission, and the remaining two engines still have the previous 9-speed, though it has been refined.

Jeep Cherokee Exterior Updates for 2019

Due to its price-point and size, for many dealerships the Jeep Cherokee was the most popular Jeep model on the lot. However, we won't pretend there weren't articles floating around for years about the "polarizing" front-end look. The headlight design and pinched bumper were admittedly a turnoff for some interested parties who, despite the crossover's capabilities, went with another brand's option to get a more contemporary look.

Jeep heard the grumbles and gave customers what they wanted: a new fascia and updated hood. Now, they didn't go all soft on the Cherokee and it still rocks a rugged look, but the new front-end has received more thumbs-up and sales. Other updates to the exterior include an available hands-free liftgate that opens with the wave of a foot, and there are five new wheel designs to take for a spin around Brockport.

Interior revisions

Within the last year several Jeep vehicles have gotten full redesigns and refreshes, and a major change for all has been upgraded technology and materials. The Jeep Grand Cherokee is still the top-pick if you want a completely luxurious SUV, but we also like that the other models have a more refined image too.

If you're looking to upgrade your current Cherokee-or have checked one out in the past but decided to pass on it-you'll notice there's less hard plastics and more upgraded and soft-touch materials. The center console also has a new layout which provides better storage space for smaller items and access to plugs. Speaking of space, this model year's is the most spacious with 24.6 cubic feet of space with all seats up and 54.9 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. You can even fit an entire golf club bag across the trunk area, which you couldn't do before.

Technology wise, all trims now come standard with at least a 7-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integrations. If you don't have an iPhone or Android there's still Bluetooth for calling and music streaming, and the infotainment system has been improved.

Five Trims for Brockport Drivers to Choose From

With five trims there's enough options for a wide range of budgets, but also not so many that shopping becomes overwhelming.

  • Trim 1 (base): Latitude
  • Trim 2: Latitude Plus
  • Trim 3: Limited
  • Trim 4 (off-roader): Trailhawk
  • Trim 5: Overland

At our dealership we tend to carry the Latitude, Limited, and a few Trailhawk models. If you're interested in the Latitude Plus or top-rated Overland but do not see them in our inventory, contact our Batavia sales staff and we can find one for you.

Highlights of the base Latitude include a backup camera, fog lights and auto on/off headlights, 7-inch touchscreen, and 17-inch wheels. The Latitude Plus offers more refinement and technology. There's a leather-wrapped steering wheel, premium cloth and vinyl seats that have blue stitching for an eye-catching contrast, and for advanced safety technologies there's standard blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts.

The Limited is the most popular at our dealership, and it provides Le Roy shoppers with a near perfect balance of financial value and premium appointments. There's Nappa leather-trimmed seats, a larger 8.4-inch touchscreen, and the aluminum wheels are polished for extra flair. To help aid the standard rearview camera there's park sense and rear parking alerts. If you have room in the budget we suggest getting the optional hands-free liftgate!

If you're a shopper after higher levels of capability, there's no secret the Trailhawk will provide a ton of off-roading fun. This trail-rated option has skid plates, a tuned exterior that takes approach angles into consideration, off-road minded crawl ratio, Selec-Terrain® technology, and the Uconnect Off-Road Pages program that provides instant information on the vehicle that make for informed, fun, and safe off-roading! If you're looking to get away from the usual Albion streets and onto bumpy trails, this is the trim to choose.

Last up is the luxurious Overland. Its 19-inch wheel designs are extra striking, the Nappa seats not only get warm but also ventilate for hot summer days, and there's Zebrano wood accents on the steering wheel that provide a snazzy touch.

We think you'll love the refreshed 2019 Jeep Cherokee model has much as we do and cannot wait to show it off. Stop into our dealership this week to check out our selection and go on a few test drives!
