A polarizing design is replaced by an aesthetic that fits into the rest of the Jeep lineup.
For 2019 the Jeep Cherokee got a heavily refreshed front fascia.
The base 2.4-liter Tigershark inline-four-cylinder engine and the optional 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 carry over largely unchanged from the previous Cherokee.
New for 2019, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is available with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.
All Cherokees come with drive modes for Sport, Mud/Sand and Snow, but the Trailhawk gets an additional Rock mode.
If taking the rough route is your jam, the Cherokee is your kind of crossover.
The 4x4-only Trailhawk trim comes with a 1-inch lift, a locking rear differential and skid plates.
Driver assistance aids carry over from the old Cherokee. Blind-spot monitoring is standard on higher level trims, or available as part of an option package on lower trims.
Lane departure warning, park assist, adaptive cruise control with full stop-and-go capability and forward collision warning and braking are all part of an optional technology package on higher trims.
The 2019 Cherokee's interior doesn't change much, which is good, because it's a fine mix of form and function.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on both the base seven-inch or optional 8.4-inch touchscreen.
The 2019 Jeep Cherokee Latitude starts at $23,995. Scroll through for more photos of this seriously capable crossover.
