The 2019 Jeep Cherokee: A Fresh New Take on a Compact Favorite

November 8th, 2018 by

There are a lot of good reasons to buy a compact SUV as you consider options for a family car like the Chrysler Pacifica vs. Honda Odyssey, or configurations available for the 2019 Jeep Compass: They often offer a “just right” level of space and can feel more comfortable on the road than some of their clunkier cousins. Unfortunately, there’s also a lot of reasons not to buy compact models. What they gain in smooth handling, they lose in power and versatility. You’re not going to be able to do as much in a compact SUV.

Unless, of course, you’re driving something like the 2019 Jeep Cherokee.

Refreshed for 2019, the Jeep Cherokee delivers a new design that delivers an experience more solidly grounded in “Jeep.” It looks more like the rest of its Jeep siblings and, more importantly, it delivers options designed to improve its on-road versatility. It has more cargo space than previous-year models, as well as options for all-wheel drive and the Jeep Selec-Terrain traction management system.

It also offers the powerful Cherokee Trailhawk trim. Implementing a range of tweaks and features, it elevates the Cherokee from a good SUV to a great one. Its upgrades include a higher wheel-base to help tackle tougher terrain. It also gains access to a powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine. Capable of 270 horsepower and 295 pounds-feet of torque, it’s one of the most robust compact powertrains available in Lafayette and Logansport.

If you’re a West Lafayette driver that want the perks of a small model without sacrificing the extra ability that made SUVs popular in the first place, consider a 2019 Jeep Cherokee.
