New 2019 Jeep Cherokee Highlights and Changes


Among the many SUVs available on the market, few have gathered a following as strong as Jeep’s Cherokee brand. A bold decision to change the iconic headlamps backfired and this new image shows Jeep has refreshed the 2019 Jeep Cherokee. Now a distinctly different design has transformed various areas both inside and out of this beloved vehicle.

New Engine + Upgrades

With a brand new engine choice, the 270 horsepower, 2.0-litre turbo four engine, owners will have another option with an engine that boasts strong performance for a vehicle that maintains its unique power, stylish comfort and off road capabilities. This engine pairs with the TorqueFlite nine-speed automatic transmission, which has revamped software to allow for more refined shifting while driving.

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee maintains independent suspension with three different 4×4 systems available for the newest Cherokee version. A lighter vehicle overall, Jeep finds ways to continue shaving off weight, while making the vehicle just as powerful. While the knowledge of the towing capacity of the 2.0-Turbo engine is unknown, the V6 engine allows up to 4,500 pounds of towing capacity.

Further Design Upgrades

Starting with the front of the vehicle, the headlights have changed immensely, returning back to their original elongated and wider look and going away from the narrow, smaller headlamp that was on the last Cherokee model design.

The new 2019 Jeep Cherokee also receives design changes to the rear of the vehicle by moving the license plate from the bumper to the liftgate, adding updated taillights. The taillights have stayed in the same spot, but now have a small underline light under them. Other changes include updating the exhausts tips while refreshing the rest of the front of the vehicle a further upright hood that creates a smooth look from front to back of the entire 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

Aside from changes made to the headlights and the small changes to the rear of the vehicle, the new 2019 Cherokee design is fairly similar to the last Cherokee design, which first came out in 2013. This new generation has come a long way with an even sleeker, modern design that should continue to attract customers.

Modern Tech Interior

The interior also has been revamped. Less plastic is noticeable inside the cabin space. Not much more space was added the interior, but a better infotainment system is a welcomed upgrade. The new available 7-or 8.4-inch touchscreen that uses the latest UConnect system responds faster to users, which offers a much better user experience. Finally adding Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionalities, 2019 Jeep Cherokee owners will enjoy more standard modern amenities.

Differences and Similarities: Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and Durango SRT

jeep 2018

The 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk and Durango SRT are two powerful luxury SUVs with great features and enough engine power to satisfy anyone. So which one is for you? Let’s compare these two vehicles to see if one meets your needs better than the other. If you want to get a closer look and take them both for a test drive, both models are available at Miami Lakes Automall.

With a starting MSRP of $62,995 (plus destination fee), the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT provides a 475-hp 6.4-liter HEMI V-8, with all wheel drive (AWD) through an eight-speed automatic transmission. Complete with gaping front air intake, 20-inch wheels and 4-inch tailpipes, the Durango SRT has an aggressive muscle-car inspired look that matches its roaring strong HEMI engine.

Though the Dodge Durango SRT is powerful, the 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has an even stronger engine. The Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has a starting MSRP of $85,900 (plus destination fee) and it is equipped with a 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine that provides up to 707-horsepower. Thanks to the powerful engine, the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has an incredible 0-60 mph acceleration time of just 3.5 seconds and it completes a quarter-mile in a mere 11.6 seconds. Not bad for a midsize SUV.

One reason for consumers to pick one model over the other is seating capacity. The 2018 Dodge Durango SRT can seat the driver and six passengers and the Jeep Grand Cherokee is only suitable for five passengers plus driver.

Leather interior comes standard for both vehicles, as most luxury vehicles will include, but the finish is what makes both brands quite nice. The SRT Interior Appearance package provides rich painted accents, micro suede headlines, carbon-fiber trim and an impressively stitched dashboard cover; a first for any Durango model.

Buyers looking for a performance SUV that also has great towing capabilities may be more inclined to go with the Durango SRT. While the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk has an excellent maximum towing capacity of 7,200 pounds, the Dodge Durango SRT has an increased max towing capacity of 8,700 pounds for towing capabilities.

 There’s no doubt the reason you’d want either of these upscale SUVs is to provide a luxurious, powerful driving experience. The place you can go to test one for yourself is Miami Lakes Automall, where you can comfortably test drive a 2018 Dodge Durango SRT and Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.

An all-new 2017 Jeep Compass is coming out and it looks better than ever. The new Compass model is a slightly larger version of the Jeep Renegade, and people are loving it! Check out all the new features.

Some exterior features of the standard base model include an all-new modern design, chrome accents, and a seven slot Jeep grille with bright and attention-grabbing HID headlights.

The 2016 Compass models have two engine options and it is likely that they will also be available with the 2017 Compass models as well. The standard engine is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that averages 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

New 2017 Jeep Model Highlights


2017 Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot

Aside from the exterior style, the 2017 Jeep Patriot and Compass models have similar specs and very few changes were made to the 2017 models. The Jeep Patriot has a more boxy and rugged look, whereas the Jeep Compass looks similar to the Grand Cherokee, but it is a smaller compact SUV.  

Both models are equipped with a 158-horsepower 2.0-liter I-4 World gas engine, that give both models an excellent fuel economy of 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. The 2017 Patriot and Compass lineups have been condensed from five trims to two, the Sport and Latitude trims. Since buyers have different needs, the Patriot and Compass models are available in three drivetrain configurations – standard front-wheel drive, available Freedom Drive I or Trail Rated Freedom Drive II 4×4 systems.

2017 Jeep Renegade

For the 2017 model year, all Jeep Renegade trims have received a couple upgrades. The Jeep Renegade is still equipped with a standard 1.4-liter MultiAir turbo engine and the 2.4-liter Tigershark engine with MultiAir2 paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission is also an available option to buyers, but it is standard on the Renegade Trailhawk. That engine configuration makes the Jeep Renegade the most fuel-efficient Jeep available with an average of 24 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

Since the Renegade Dawn of Justice Edition and 75th Anniversary Editions are no longer available in 2017, the Renegade lineup will now only consist of four trims, including the off-road Trail Rated Jeep Renegade Trailhawk. All 2017 Renegade trims will have Keyless Go standard on all trims (late availability) and HID headlamps (late availability) and automatic high-beam headlamps will be an option to buyers. Finally, the Renegade Limited will have standard passive entry.

2017 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited

As one of the most popular models made by Jeep, the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited haven’t received many upgrades or changes for the 2017 model year. The Wrangler is a two-door SUV with seating for four people, and the Wrangler Unlimited is a larger four-door model with seating for up to five people. Read the rest of this entry >>
