3 Things That Make Us Excited About The 2019 Jeep Cherokee

2019 Jeep Cherokee (11)

As part of an extensive freshening, Jeep’s midsize SUV, the Cherokee, is getting a slew of new updates, tech, and even powertrain. This only makes us want to reach into our pockets and check if we’ve got money to pay for the humongous price tag we’re sure the 2019 Cherokee will come packaged in.

1. Powertrain

The Jeep Cherokee gets a new powertrain courtesy of an optional turbocharged inline-four engine that could produce 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Other options available are the standard 2.4-liter I-4 engine that delivers 180 horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque and a naturally-aspirated 3.2-liter V-6 that churns out 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque.

All of these three engines are combined with a nine-speed automatic transmission with a new operating software that promises to improve performance. To increase fuel efficiency, Jeep also equipped the engines with a stop-start technology.

2. Exterior

The Jeep Cherokee’s famous front fascia has been redesigned to make way for daytime running lights and LED headlights that have been infused into a single unit. The stacked design on the previous model was a popular favorite, but Jeep decided its time to forego that layout.

Aside from the front fascia, there’s also a refreshed hood and the seven-slot grille. In the rear, the liftgate design offers an optional hands-free automatic opening feature that you can activate with a mere foot wave under the bumper. There’s also a new set of rear lighting, which is a thin red band of LED lighting that signals the stop, turn, and backing lights.

3. Interior

There’s three inches of additional cabin width in the new Jeep Cherokee. This extra space now has 27 additional cubic feet for the cabin. Those who complained in the past about not being able to fit their golf clubs can now rest and be merry.

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee will be available to the US market during the first quarter. There are no pricing details as of now.

Top 4 Things Revealed By The New 2018 Jeep Cherokee Spy Shots and Rumors

New spy shots of the 2018 Jeep Cherokee emerged online once more. This time, the prototype seems to be shedding more of its camouflage, which gives us a better idea of what to look forward to in the vehicle.

Here’s what the new spy shots and reports revealed to us about the new Cherokee:

1. Design

The new Cherokee seems to be a mere update of its current generation model. The same form and body lines that adorned the existing model of the vehicle were carried to the upcoming SUV. However, the covered areas of the 2018 version of the auto hint where the major updates will take place.

Basing from the camouflaged portions of the new Cherokee, it will get redesigned bumpers and lighting. On the other hand, the wraps in the grille and rear hatch might not necessarily mean restyling. Instead, the covered areas likely hide the real identity of the vehicle before its official unveiling.

2. Engine

Information about the new Cherokee remain heavily guarded. According to the source though, the SUV will probably be equipped with Jeep’s new petrol-fed 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which will also be utilized by the new Wrangler.

The post added it is possible too that Jeep will carry over the current 2.4-liter four-cylinder, 3.2-liter V6 and 2.0-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engines of the Cherokee for the updated model. The engines might be reconfigured to offer a boost in their outputs.

At present, the four cylinder unit produces 130 kW and 299 Nm of torque. The V6 has 200 kW and 316 Nm of torque. The four-cylinder diesel gives off 125 kW and 350 Nm of torque.

3. High-Performance Model

There are rumors that a high-performance version of the 2018 Cherokee will follow in the form of a Trackhawk model.

4. Arrival

The 2018 Cherokee is expected to be unveiled at the Los Angeles Auto Show in December.

5 Most Powerful American Cars and SUVs Today

Earlier, we have discussed how automotive experts wanted the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon banned from the roads. They are worried that its ridiculously high output might trigger reckless drivers. That is subject for debate though.

For now, let us take a look at where the Dodge Demon falls under the 5 most powerful American cars and sport utility vehicles today based on an article from Fox News Auto.

1. 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon

Unsurprisingly, the Demon falls into first place, thanks to its 6.2-liter V8 engine that can produce up to 808 hp. As if that’s not yet high enough, the source said that pumping the vehicle with 100 octane race gas can raise its output to 840 hp.

2. Dodge Challenger/Charger SRT Hellcat

The Hellcats each carry a 6.2-liter V8 unit. The engine packs 707 hp. The Challenger model is capable of getting a top speed of 199 mph while the more aerodynamically-built Charger can take up to 204 mph.

3. 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

4 Key Features Of The 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT

The emergence of crossovers and SUVs is a matter of practicality for most Americans. Since they can haul more people and have better space than sedans, crossovers and SUVs have obviously become a favorite for many Americans.

It’s no surprise that manufacturers are adding sportiness and sexiness to these compact vehicles to widen the genre and market reach.

Mild Facelift For 2014 SRT

The model first came to consciousness as a 420-horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, which ran from 2006 to 2011. The second generation came about in 2012. It was a 470-horsepower machine with an abbreviated SRT suffix. By 2014, it received a mild facelift, as well as a new eight-speed automatic transmission with launch control.

Since that year, it received an update of five more horsepower and 5 lb-ft of torque for a grand total of 475 and 470, respectively. This 2017, the Grand Cherokee SRT will undergo slight touchups cosmetically.

Handsome And Luxurious Interior

In the past, the Grand Cherokee SRT couldn’t win comparison tests because its interiors are basic and unassuming. Compared with other vehicles with this much power in the market, the Grand Cherokee SRT would feel like one of your everyday cars.

This year, the Grand Cherokee SRT has been fitted with saddle-colored hides, microsuede leather headliner, carbon-fiber trim, and a batch of other options, most of which come with a hefty price tag. You can opt for these: a panoramic sunroof ($2095), a dual-screen rear-seat entertainment system ($1995), and a premium audio system (also $1995).

You may also get it with a trailer-tow package for $995, as well as an $895 set of Pirelli P Zero Run Flat summer tires in $1295 set of 20-inch wheels, and $1295 Brembo brake calipers,

Speed And Power Like No Other

The Jeep’s engine can go 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds. If you want to go 30-to-50 mph, that would be 2.9 seconds while 50 to 70 took 3.2 seconds. These aren’t astounding numbers, but the best thing about the Grand Cherokee SRT is that you won’t feel just how fast you’re going. It has such a good suspension system that handling it is such a breeze.

It has multiple driving modes: Snow, Tow, Auto, Sport, and Track. The front/rear torque distribution varies depending on the driving mode.

Cheaper Than Other High-Performance SUVs

At $78,455, the Grand Cherokee SRT is way more affordable than its other rivals from Porsche, Land Rover, and Mercedes-Benz.
