2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited Beats Out Other Mid-Size SUV Options


The mid-size SUV market is one of the most competitive segments, and of all the models, the Jeep Cherokee Limited offers some of the best standard features. Jeep redesigned the Cherokee for the 2019 model year and it is quite impressive, and although it’s very new to the market, Miami Lakes Automall has a great selection of 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited models available. Not convinced its for you? Here are some of the standout features the Cherokee Limited offers that three other similarly midsize SUVs don’t.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited v. 2018 Toyota RAV4 XLE

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited comes standard with 18-inch polished aluminum wheels, an 8.4-inch touchscreen, Nappa leather seats, and heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Unfortunately the Toyota RAV4 XLE doesn’t offer features that are quite as nice. The Toyota RAV4 XLE has 17-inch alloy wheels, a 6.1-inch touchscreen and it doesn’t feature Nappa leather seats.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited v. 2018 Chevy Equinox LT

The Jeep Cherokee Limited and Chevy Equinox have both recently been redesigned, and the Cherokee Limited definitely has more modern features. The Cherokee Limited has an 8/4-inch touchscreen, which is 1.4 inches bigger than the touchscreen offered in the Equinox LT. Additionally, the Cherokee Limited also has a power liftgate, park assist, and Nappa leather. The Chevy Equinox LT doesn’t have any of those features, and those are definitely pretty desirable for buyers that want an SUV that has a mix of luxury and tech.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited v. 2018 Honda CR-V LX

The Honda CR-V LX is definitely a very popular mid-size SUV, but that doesn’t mean it is the best out there. The Honda CR-V is equipped with LED daytime running lamps, 17-inch alloy wheels, a remote entry system, and a 5-inch color LCD screen, which are fairly average features. The Jeep Cherokee Limited has a larger touch screen, larger wheels, a remote entry system, a rearview camera with park assist. The Cherokee Limited also has Nappa leather seats, front heated seats and a heated steering wheel, which means that of these three mid-sized SUVs, the Cherokee Limited is the only option that comes standard with those seating features.

What Other Features Does the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited Have?

In addition to all of the features above, the Jeep Cherokee Limited comes standard with a 2.4-liter I4 MultiAir engine, which gives the Cherokee Limited a great balance between power and fuel economy. The Cherokee Limited has excellent convenience features including several power outlets that make it easy for drivers and passengers to keep their devices charged, cargo tie down loops, which help keep items secure in the trunk, a full-length floor console and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.  In addition to the 8.4-inch touchscreen, the Cherokee Limited also has Uconnect 4, which is the most advanced and up-to-date infotainment system offered by FCA. Uconnect 4 allows drivers to control a number of car functions and also provides access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a number of other apps.

Jeep Changed the Wrangler Lineup for All-New Wrangler JL


Jeep introduced the all-new next-generation 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL in late 2017 and the new model included a lot of changes to the Wrangler’s features and lineup. While we have discussed the Wrangler JL’s new features a few times, we haven’t discussed all the changes made to the Wrangler JL lineup, so here are the updates.


The Wrangler JK (the generation prior to the Wrangler JL) lineup consisted of several trims, and although the number of trims gave consumers a lot of options, some consumers felt overwhelmed trying to determine the differences from trim to trim. To avoid confusion, Jeep reduced the Wrangler JL trim lineup to just four different trims, and each of the trims is also available with upgrades and options to give consumers more variety when designing their new Wrangler.

The new trims include the Wrangler Sport, Sport S, Rubicon and Sahara trims. The Wrangler Sport, Sport S, and Rubicon trims are available with a two-door or four-door Wrangler, and the Sahara is only available with a four-door model.


Another change to the lineup that Jeep made to help reduce confusion is that four-door and two-door Wrangler models are both called “Wrangler.” Previously, Jeep called four-door models the “Wrangler Unlimited” and two-door models the “Wrangler,” but a lot of consumers referred to both the four-door and two-door models as a “Wrangler” anyways.  

Ground Clearances

Another major change to the lineup is that now all Wrangler trims have the same industry-leading ground clearance and off-road angles. The new ground clearances and angles are a ground clearance of 10.9 inches, a departure angle of 37 degrees, an approach angle of 44 degrees and a breakover angle of 27.8 degrees. Additionally, all Wrangler trims have water fording capabilities of up to 30 inches.

2018 Jeep Wrangler JL

The Jeep Wrangler JL is the most advanced and most capable Wrangler ever and the changes made to the lineup will definitely be appreciated by consumers. Other highlights of the new Wrangler JL include the addition of two engine options, a 270-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine, and two transmission options, a six-speed manual transmission and an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Wrangler JL also has new roof options, including a power sliding option, as well as an upgraded Uconnect system, which provides enhanced entertainment options.

Want to see all of the awesome new traits on the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL, come to Miami Lakes Jeep. We have a large new state-of-the-art building and a huge selection of Jeep Wrangler models.


2019 Jeep Cherokee Arrives to Miami Lakes Automall, Here’s a Closer Look


The all-new 2019 Jeep Cherokee debuted in January, and the new models have arrived at Miami Lakes Automall, so now we know even more details about the new model and the new 2019 lineup. Here’s a closer look at the new 2019 Jeep Cherokee, you can view the new models for yourself at our location in Miami Lakes.


The all-new 2019 Jeep Cherokee lineup consists of six different trims, the Latitude, Latitude Plus, Limited, Overland, Trailhawk and the Trailhawk Elite, which is the newest trim to join the lineup. The Cherokee Trailhawk and Trailhawk Elite are only available with four-wheel-drive, but the other four Cherokee models are available with front-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive.


There are three engine options on the Cherokee lineup. The standard engine on most of the Cherokee trims is the 2.4-liter I-4 MultiAir engine, which produces 180 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. The other two engine options are the 3.2-liter V6 engine and the all-new 2.0-liter four cylinder engine.

The 3.2L engine produces 271 horsepower 239 lb-ft of torque and it comes standard on the Cherokee Limited, Cherokee Trailhawk and Cherokee Trailhawk Elite, but it is an available option on other Cherokee models. The 3.2L gives the Jeep Cherokee a best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 4,500 pounds.

The newest engine on the lineup is the 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 engine and it is powerful and a little more “green” than the other engines. The 2.0L engine produces 270 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque and it features engine stop-start technology, which improves fuel economy and reduces the amount of greenhouse gases emitted. The 2.0L engine is an available upgrade on all trims, except the Cherokee Latitude.

Ground Clearance

Now that Jeep has added the specs of the entire Jeep Cherokee lineup to their website, we know the departure angle, approach angle and breakover angle of all Cherokee trims. The Cherokee Trailhawk and Cherokee Trailhawk Elite have a ground clearance of 8.7 inches, a 29.9-degree approach angle, a 22.9-degree breakover angle and a 32.2-degree departure angle. The other Cherokee trims have an 18.9-degree approach angle, a 19.5-degree breakover angle and a 25-degree departure angle.

Infotainment System

The tech inside the Jeep Cherokee has been upgraded and now the base Cherokee trims, the Cherokee Latitude and Cherokee Latitude Plus, come standard with a 7-inch touchscreen and Uconnect 4. The other Cherokee trims are equipped with an 8.4-inch touchscreen and Uconnect 4, but buyers can upgrade to Uconnect 4C with navigation if they want. Uconnect 4 is compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and it includes a backup rearview camera, built-in radio options and there is the option of hands free calls or texts.

Gadgets for Your Vehicle for Camping Trips


Not every vehicle comes with everything they drivers want or need for a camping trip. When you don’t find what you’re looking for, there’s options to make your upcoming camping trips even better. We’ll give you suggestions on what car gadgets and items will make your vehicle or camping experience enhanced, so before your trip you can ensure you’ll have a great time. Let’s take a look!

Heavy-Duty 12-Volt Car Extension Cord Don’t Leave Home Without It

Need to power something in the wild? Extension cord might make things easier which you can find them online ranging up to 12 feet long or more. Simply plug in your heavy-duty cable into your vehicle’s 12-volt outlet, (which can generate up to 180 watts or 15 amps) and you’ll be able to power any device. From making your camping experience a little less rustic and a little more modern, you can keep anything you need charged. If you need to power your hair blower to inflate your air mattresses, or just to use a hair dryer, we recommend including at least one extension card in your vehicle. You can find this item online for less than $13.

Roof Rack

Free up some precious space inside your vehicle with a roof rack. You can easily get around 20 cubic feet of extra space in your vehicle with the right roof rack. As long as the items are tied down properly and don’t weigh too much. Just ensure that there’s no chance what you put on your roof rack could fall off. A roof rack system also looks cool and can make the difference between having comfortable room in your interior or not. They are relatively inexpensive as well and your passengers will thank you.

Flash Light

If you think your iPhone or Android smartphone light is strong enough, then you’re obviously not thinking about the wildlife (you’ll want more light) or the battery life of your device (you’ll want more of that, too). Having extra batteries is also important. You’ll feel better at night with one or two or a battery-powered lantern. Considering how cheap flashlights are, it’s something you should have on any camping trip.

Car Vent Clips

After a day of being outside or more, you’ll want to have your vehicle smell great since you and your guests probably won’t. Make the drive home easier with a fresh car vent clip, plus they are also cheap. You won’t have to pay more than $4 for a good one. You want to enjoy the view of nature, not smell like it. Best investment on the list!

Emergency Roadside Kit

Included in every first aid emergency kit is bandages, alcohol wipes, pain medicine and adhesive bandages. There’s no reason to not have one with your vehicle should any cuts or scrapes happen to someone on your camping trip. Having to leave your campsite for a simple cut shouldn’t ever happen, be sure to be prepared as this is another cheap item to own that makes a world of difference when needed.

Car Organizer

If you’re traveling with kids, this item is perfect for ensuring nothing is lost. Simply hook one up to the back of your passenger or driver side seat. Car organizers provide space for books, Blu-Rays, iPads, napkins, snacks and more. Prevent distractions for you and your passengers by using a car organizer, which can range from $25 to $60 depending on what style you go with.

The Right Vehicle For Your Road Trip

There’s no doubt that having the right vehicle is even more important the supplies. With a brand like Jeep, you’ll be able to go on an adventure almost right away when you go with the ultimate Jeep off road vehicle that makes camping trips a breeze in the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Complete with an engine that cranks out 707 horsepower, high performance powertrain and skid plates to protect the undercarriage of your Jeep, you won’t want to end your camping trip!

Expect to find the right vehicle for your upcoming camping trip with the professionals at Miami Lakes Automall. We have a entire Jeep catalog of new and pre-owned Jeep vehicles that will make your summer camping adventures extraordinary!
