The evolution of Jeep Cherokee, the most capable mid-size sport-utility vehicle (SUV) and the model which established the category, boasts a new, authentic and premium design which is true to the Jeep DNA and introduces additional comfort and functionality features for all occupants. The 2019 Cherokee delivers everyday practicality with outstanding ride and handling characteristics, independent front and rear suspensions, world-class body torsional stiffness, advanced engine options paired with an enhanced nine-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual gearbox and an array of safety and security systems, including Active Forward Collision Warning, Active Lane Departure Warning and Adaptive Cruise Control Plus. For 2019, Jeep Cherokee features a new exterior design which takes on the premium side of the brand yet stays true to iconic Jeep styling. The new exterior highlights a completely fresh appearance with a new fascia, lightweight hood, LED headlamps, daylight running lamps (DRL), fog lamps and taillamps and is complemented by an updated interior which has been redesigned for both comfort and convenience. The updated interior of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee receives a fresh and elegant touch while remaining a practical and comfortable environment. Premium hand-sculpted forms tie signature Jeep design cues and high-quality materials together with precision craftsmanship. A driver-oriented cockpit, loaded with easy-to-use, useful technology and clever, thoughtful storage features, provides occupants everything they need for any adventure they undertake.

Rear cargo capacity has also been improved and now offers additional, convenient storage space that can easily accommodate gear for every day adventures. Access to the cargo area is easier thanks to the availability of the hands-free power liftgate operated by making a kicking motion under the bumper to open. The 2019 Jeep Cherokee also receives the latest UconnectTM systems, delivering communication, entertainment and navigation features. Depending on the trim, Jeep Cherokee can be equipped with UconnectTM 5.0-inch or the new UconnectTM 7.0-inch, UconnectTM 8.4-inch and UconnectTM 8.4" NAV, which include enhanced processing power, faster start-up times and touchscreens that display high-resolution graphics. The system allows the driver to control many onboard features, including climate and audio, directly through the UconnectTM display.

Jeep Cherokee models equipped with the UconnectTM 7.0, 8.4 or 8.4 NAV systems also include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. To those customers looking for the pleasure of enjoying the open-air driving experience that only Jeep can ensure, the 2019 Cherokee continues to offer the CommandView dual-pane power sunroof, available as an option on all trim levels. CommandView extends from the windshield to the rear of the vehicle allowing for perfect views both on- and off-road. Available with a choice of three all-wheel drive systems (Jeep Active Drive I, Jeep Active Drive II and Jeep Active Drive Lock) that have been enhanced for unmatched 4x4 capability for all weather conditions and rear-axle disconnect technology that improves fuel efficiency when 4x4 capability is not needed, the Jeep Cherokee maintains its place as the benchmark mid-size SUV. More information on the 2019 Jeep Cherokee will be available on the Jeep media website immediately after the Jeep press conference on March 6.
