Which Cherokee does Edmunds recommend?

The best reason to buy the Cherokee is because you want a small SUV that can go off-road, so we recommend the Trailhawk for its exclusive features and surprising capability. It also looks cool. But if off-roading isn't your thing, the Limited offers a nice feature set for the price, and access to more options. We highly recommend the new 2.0-liter turbo engine, which is more fuel-efficient than the lackluster base 2.4-liter engine, and delivers near-V6 horsepower and towing capacity. We think buyers who plan on serious towing should still opt for the V6 with the towing package, though.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

7.8 / 10

If you want a small SUV that can tow or go off-road, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is worth a look. Thankfully, that look will be much more pleasant this year, too. Jeep has given the exterior styling a much-needed refresh and included some upgrades in the cabin and under the hood.

Beyond the obvious changes to the Cherokee's sheet metal, Jeep has added a few nice interior upgrades, such as a storage bin for phones in the center console and a few upgraded trim options. There's also a new optional turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that's more powerful than the Cherokee's base four-cylinder and more fuel-efficient than the optional V6 engine. You can read more about it in our 2019 Jeep Cherokee First Drive.

The Cherokee still doesn't offer as much cargo capacity as rivals, and even with the new 2.0-liter engine, fuel economy falls a little short of class leaders. The ever-practical Honda CR-V remains an easy choice for buyers who don't need the Cherokee's particular strengths thanks to its exceptional cargo space and efficiency. If you're going to be spending most of your time on the road, the Mazda CX-5 both feels more upscale inside and is more engaging to drive.

Overall, though, the Cherokee's off-road and towing capabilities along with its 2019 improvements make it a solid choice for a small SUV.

What's it like to live with?

Edmunds' editorial team acquired and lived with a 2014 Jeep Cherokee for a year, putting 22,000 miles on the odometer. We tested the Cherokee's off-road capability, on-road comfort, cargo space and more. There are some differences between the 2014 and 2019 worth noting — the 2019 model received a styling refresh and some interior updates and added an optional turbocharged four-cylinder engine. But the 2019 is in the same generation as our test Cherokee, so many of our observations still apply.

2019 Jeep Cherokee models

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is a small crossover SUV offered in five main trim levels. The Latitude is the base trim, and the Latitude Plus adds premium equipment, but you have to go up to the Limited and off-road-focused Trailhawk trims to get standard safety equipment. Finally, the top-of-the-line Overland comes with all the interior and exterior amenities.

Standard on the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 180 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. You can also get an optional 3.2-liter V6 that makes 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque or a 2.0-liter turbo that makes 270 hp and 295 lb-ft. A nine-speed automatic transmission is standard with all engines. The Latitude, Limited and Overland are available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, while the Trailhawk comes standard with all-wheel drive.

Standard equipment highlights for the Latitude include 17-inch wheels, automatic xenon headlights, heated side mirrors, height-adjustable front seats, 60/40-split folding rear seatback, a folding front passenger seat with a storage compartment inside the seat cushion, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, a USB port, a new 7-inch touchscreen interface and a six-speaker audio system. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration is standard across the range for 2019. There's also a variant for 4WD models called the Upland, which adds black exterior trim and all-terrain tires.

The Latitude Plus trim adds keyless ignition and entry, leather inserts in the upholstery, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Satellite radio is standard as are two extra USB ports. The Altitude variant includes 18-inch wheels and gloss-black exterior trim.

The Latitude Plus has one notable package available, the Comfort and Convenience package, which adds features such as an auxiliary household power outlet, dual-zone climate control, a power liftgate, auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote start, and a universal garage door opener.

The Limited trim includes the Latitude's Comfort and Convenience package, and also adds 18-inch wheels, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, a power front passenger seat, leather upholstery, an upgraded driver information display in the gauge cluster, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, and an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The High Altitude version adds 19-inch wheels, body-colored body accents, dark gray exterior trim and a navigation system.

These three trim levels all come standard with the 2.4-liter four-cylinder. The turbocharged 2.0-liter and V6 engines are available as an upgrade for the Latitude Plus and Limited trims.

The range-topping Overland comes standard with the V6, with the option to add the 2.0-liter, and has its own 18-inch wheels, unique body-colored exterior trim, cornering lights, sound-deadening windshield and front windows, driver-seat memory functions, a leather-wrapped instrument panel, wood steering-wheel inserts, upgraded leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable passenger seat, sliding rear seat, a nine-speaker audio system, a navigation system and HD radio.

The nine-speaker stereo and sunroof are available as standard features in lower trim levels.

The off-road-themed Trailhawk comes with an advanced all-wheel-drive system (Active Drive II with Active Drive Lock) and also boasts slightly wider 17-inch wheels and all-terrain tires, increased ground clearance, off-road-oriented suspension tuning, a locking rear differential, hill ascent and descent control, skid plates, tow hooks, unique exterior trim, and unique cloth and leather upholstery. Its equipment otherwise largely mirrors the Limited trim level's equipment, though it lacks the power liftgate, remote start, and auto-dimming rearview mirror. These are part of the Trailhawk Comfort and Convenience package. As on the Overland, the V6 is standard while the 2.0-liter is optional. Navigation is available for both the Limited and the Trailhawk. The Trailhawk Elite adds most of the Overland's features.

The more advanced Active Drive II AWD system from the Trailhawk is available as an optional extra on AWD-equipped Latitude Plus, Limited and Overland Cherokees.

Many of the higher trims' features are available on lower trims via optional packages or as stand-alone extras. If you're planning on towing, equip your Latitude Plus, Limited or Trailhawk trim with a Trailer Tow group package. This package includes a stand-alone transmission cooler, Class III hitch, trailer wiring harness for both four- and seven-pin systems, as well as a full-size spare. V6-equipped models also receive additional engine cooling.

Jeep also offers the Technology group package on the Limited, Trailhawk and Overland trims. Included in this safety-oriented package is forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, traffic-adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, automatic wipers, auto high-beam headlights, and an automatic parking system that works on both parallel and perpendicular spots.

Comfort7.5
Interior8.0
Utility8.0
Technology8.5

Driving

7.5
We're pleasantly surprised by how well this Jeep steers and handles on the pavement, given the brand's association with off-road prowess. The V6 in our test vehicle pulls strongly when called upon but lacks low-end response. A new turbo 2.0-liter engine is offered, which outperforms the V6.

Acceleration

7.5
This V6-powered Cherokee has decent top-end punch but is lackluster off the line. Its nine-speed transmission's sluggish responses are partly to blame. The Cherokee fails to match the top Ford Escape and is just slightly quicker than the Honda CR-V, both of which have smaller turbo four-cylinders.

Braking

7.5
The pedal has a good amount of effort and response, making it easy and predictable to stop smoothly in everyday driving. It needed 128 feet to stop from 60 mph — marginally better than average for the class — but showed good stability under hard braking.

Steering

8.0
The steering is nicely weighted, feels direct, and even transmits some of the road texture to the driver. Bigger bumps are nicely filtered out. It's well-balanced all around, and there's a good sense of center when driving on the highway, so you're never chasing the wheel when going straight.

Handling

8.5
Handling is unexpectedly sporty. Despite its 4,000-pound curb weight, low-rolling-resistance tires and higher center of gravity, the Cherokee handles better than some sedans. Its body motions feel well-controlled with not a lot of body roll, even at higher speeds.

Drivability

7.0
Most people will find this nine-speed gearbox's shift quality agreeable and much improved over earlier efforts. It's slow to respond when attempting three-point turns, though. The stop-start system isn't too intrusive. Sport mode holds lower gears and turns traction control off — odd but cool.

Off-road

7.5
Jeep Active Drive II is available on Latitude and includes 4-Low mode, increases ride height by an inch, and has a crawl ratio of 48.3:1 when equipped with the V6 engine. For real off-road ability, check out the Cherokee Trailhawk — it's one of the most capable in the class.

Comfort

7.5
The Cherokee does a fine job of softening harsh roads, but it's less adept at controlling the ups and downs of smoother undulating roads. We found the seats to be comfortable even if they don't provide a lot of lateral support. The climate control system is both effective and easy to use.

Seat comfort

7.5
The seats have soft cushions, which helps make up for relatively flat bottom cushions, and the center sections have breathable upholstery. There's a decent amount of padding on both inboard and outboard armrests. Lateral support is on the meek side, which is forgivable for an SUV.

Ride comfort

8.0
The Cherokee's ride is pleasant. It's not a luxurious experience, but the suspension effectively filters out sharper road imperfections. Deep undulations reveal a lack of damping — the car takes its time before settling — but it still provides a pretty nice compromise between compliance and control.

Noise & vibration

7.0
There's an average amount of road and ambient noise that penetrates the cabin, and some wind noise as well. It's not particularly distracting, but we wouldn't call it quiet. We experienced no real interior creeks or rattles during our time with the car.

Climate control

8.0
The system maintains temperature well, and the controls are easy to locate and adjust. Some functions such as the seat- and steering-wheel heaters are located in the touchscreen, requiring an extra step but pop up immediately when you start the car — a nice touch. Seat heaters get toasty quickly, too.

Interior

8.0
The high-mounted cabin is easy to climb into and see out of, and there's ample headroom. Backseat passengers will appreciate the generous legroom. However, those who struggle to see small type might want to upgrade to the larger infotainment screen.

Ease of use

7.5
This Jeep is not only easy to use, but it's also easy to figure out thanks to a straightforward Uconnect system and large, easy-to-wield knobs and buttons. The touchscreen is small compared to many others available, and it could be a challenge for those who rely on large screen text.

Getting in/getting out

8.0
Entry/exit is aided by large-ish door openings and seats that are at an ideal height for slipping in. There is a moderate stepover, but anybody buying an SUV should expect as much. People with longer torsos will have to duck under the roof rail but will find plenty of headroom once inside.

Driving position

8.5
There is a generous amount of seat height adjustment, which should suit a wide range of driver types. The fore-aft slide adjustment range is also good and accommodates long-legged drivers. The steering column has an adequate reach-and-tilt range, and the armrests are set at a comfortable height.

Roominess

8.0
There's plenty of space to stretch out in front with seats that are suitable for larger frames. Sitting behind a 5-foot-9 driver, a person of the same size will find more than enough legroom and ample headroom. The middle seat cushion is on the firm side as is typical but could fit an adult passenger if needed.

Visibility

8.0
Visibility is good all around. The view straight back is free of obstructions, and the generous glass — including the small window at each rear flank — also helps to minimize blind spots. You can turn on the rearview camera manually and have it stay on for a few seconds, even if you're at speed.

Quality

7.5
There are nicer cabins out there, but the Cherokee's isn't unappealing. All control knobs have soft detents and rubberized knurling, which makes for easy and pleasant adjustment. Some may say the hard plastic trim has a ruggedness to it, but frankly it looks a bit cheap compared to materials in segment leaders.

Utility

8.0
Despite the trunk's small volume dimensions, its layout is clever and useful. There's a good variety of cabin storage options for common items. For those who tow trailers, an optional tow package increases the Cherokee's capacity to a useful 4,500 pounds.

Small-item storage

8.0
There's a decent amount of miscellaneous storage throughout the cabin — a couple of nooks designed for smartphones, a dual-level armrest bin, a deep glovebox, and door pockets that can hold larger water bottles. A bonus compartment is located on top of the dash, and the standard sunglass spot is overhead.

Cargo space

7.5
The adjustable load floor is handy — it can be level with the folded rear seats or dropped down for more space. Liftover height is manageable, and there's plenty of usable space despite a somewhat intrusive suspension. Its 24.6 cubic feet makes it one of the smallest trunks in the segment.

Child safety seat accommodation

8.0
Isofix anchors are clearly marked and easy to access between the rear seatback and the bottom cushion. Likewise, the rear tethers are also easy to access on the back of the seats. Good rear legroom means rear-facing seats have a better chance of fitting.

Towing

5.0
Properly equipped, the Cherokee can tow up to 4,500 pounds, which is best in class. The tow package includes seven- and four-pin wiring harnesses, auxiliary transmission cooler, a Class III hitch, a full-size spare, heavy-duty engine cooling and trailer wiring. It also requires one of the two engine upgrades.

Technology

8.5
The array of technology in the Cherokee is impressive. Many of the advanced driver aids are optional, however, and the standard infotainment screen is small by modern standards. The upgraded audio system delivers great sound, and there are lots of ways to keep many mobile devices charged.

Smartphone integration

8.5
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, and the interface is nice, even if the icons are on the small side. There are two front-cabin USB ports — one in front of the shifter and one inside the glovebox — as well as two 12-volt sockets and an auxiliary outlet. In back there's a 115-volt socket and two additional USBs.

Driver aids

7.5
Not a lot of driver aids are offered, but on the ones it has, such as blind-spot monitoring, the alerts can be configured to be audible or visual only. The manual camera activation is a nice touch, too. Adaptive cruise or lane keeping assist is available on higher trims.

Voice control

8.5
The menu is pretty straightforward, providing prompts that are helpful in guiding you through available commands. You can make calls, tune to a radio station, and even set the climate control system all through voice commands. A longer hold will call up Siri if you have your phone plugged in.

2 out of 5 stars, Beware of 2019’s
Brian Andrew,
Latitude Plus 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 9A)

On 06/11/18 I purchased a 2019 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Plus 4x4. On 06/21/18 I noticed the rear passenger taillight was allowing moisture in it resulting in condensation to build up inside the taillight. (Replaced under warranty on 08/22/18) on 07/08/18 - 07/09/18 - 07/10/18 I ran into an issue with the transmission shifting hard and then displaying a message on the dash that stated “service transmission, restart in park at zero speed” forcing me to coast to a stop and place the vehicle in park and restart it in order to have the transmission work again. (Diagnosed on 07/11/18 and valve body solenoid learn and performed quick learn under warranty) On 07/15/18 AppleCar Play wouldn’t launch on either my iPhone X or my partners iPhone 8 both operating iOS 11.4.1, the USB ports wouldn’t recognize either phones being plugged into them and then the transmission shifted hard while driving between 65mph-55mph to Cumberland, MD from Pittsburgh, PA through the Laurel Highlands. On 07/20/18 the radio went into theft lock mode while driving asking for a 4 digit pin and then the transmission wouldn’t upshift or downshift properly resulting in a message again flashing on the dash stating “service transmission, restart in park with vehicle at zero speed”. On 07/25/18 the vehicle bucked me hard into an interaction upon taking off from a stop light to the point where I put the vehicle in park and got out to check for damage bc I thought the driver behind me had rear ended me. On 08/02/18 the radio went black for about 3-4 minutes while driving then ran through its startup / loading screen as if I had just gotten into the vehicle and started it. On 08/03/18 the radio froze while driving displaying “please wait.....” in red in the middle of the screen and wouldn’t allow you to select anything on the screen. On 08/04/18 the radio randomly started making its own selections on the screen as if you were touching the menus and selecting things. The vehicle also shifted hard while slowing down around 35-45mph. On 08/07/18 the radio restarted itself after driving for about 10 minutes after its rebooted itself it again started selecting menus as if someone was touching the screen and making the selections. On 08/11/18 the vehicle again had transmission issues. When the cruise was set at 65 mph on a flat area of open road it rev’d up to 4,000 RPM and stayed that way for about 1 minute. It again hard shifted when taking off from a stop at an intersection. (On 08/15/18 the rear drivers side taillight began to allow water into the taillight resulting in a buildup of condensation. (Replaced under warranty on 08/22/18) 08/17/18 radio again restarted itself while driving and coming to a stop at a stop light. (finally got this on video occurring and a replacement radio is on order due to the radio not accepting an update that is available and the dealership feeling it’s an issue with the unit) 08/18/18 transmission shifted hard twice while driving up an incline on Donahue Rd driving between 45mph-50mph on my way from Latrobe, PA to Pittsburgh, PA. On 08/18/18 the drivers seatbelt became difficult to latch into the buckle and the dashboard would not recognize when the seatbelt wasn’t clipped in resulting in no warning message / light to display on the dash. (defective buckle replaced under warranty on 08/22/18) 08/22/18 Dealership takes measurement of oil due to concern of oil consumption and orders a replacement engine due to oil loss / consumption. An appointment is schedule for a new engine to be put in on 09/05/18 along with another leaking taillight to be replaced, radio to be replaced and the transmission to be looked at again. I am beyond frustrated with this experience and am asking that Jeep give me a replacement vehicle due to the effect the service history, engine replacement and not getting a resolution / proper diagnosis for this transmission yet will have on the resale of my vehicle down the road. I have all documents from my service visits as well as videos and pictures of things when they occurred and it was safe to take / record the issue/concern. This was my first brand new vehicle purchase and now I am questioning whether it was the right decision. PLEASE JEEP HELP ME! #Jeep #Cherokee #FCA

2 out of 5 stars, 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited-4,000 miles
Jazz1,
Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 9A)

Well while getting two recalls services at the same time a third issue blew up as I was leaving Dewey Jeep in Ankeny, IA. Low and behold the engine warning light and the automatic engine kill at stop (for extra gas mileage) cam on. The SUV jerked forward and I knew there was a problem. Turns out the fuel injector wiring was somehow abraded. I'm wondering if this happened during the recall service. I'm wondering how they could have driven the SUV and not have noticed the warning lights/icons as well as the stalling out of the SUV?

2 out of 5 stars, Not been very satisfied.
Allen,
Latitude Plus 4dr SUV 4WD (2.4L 4cyl 9A)

So I have a 2019 Cherokee Latitue plus with the 2.0T motor. This SUV gets up a lot faster than I expected. It is comfortable with good tech stuff. I am a former ASE mechanic so I have a pretty good idea of how things on vehicles work. We bought ours August of 2018, with in a month it started making a hissing noise from under the dash. Did not think to much at first, but it kept getting louder and louder. So shortly after that I got 2 recall notices in the mail, so I called to make an appointment. 3 weeks out, yes 3 weeks. So I said ok fine and while you have it for thr recalls please look into the hissing noise as by then I knew it had to do with the HVAC system. Took it in and what do you know the dealership did not order the parts for the recall! They did check the freon level and it was low. Took another 3 plus weeks to get the recall parts in and get that handled. Now about a month or maybe a little more goes by and the hissing noise is back. Took it back in, took them 2 weeks to find and fix the slow leak behind the dash. That was almost 2 weeks ago, and yesterday the check engine light came on! It's fun to drive but this has gotten old very fast! One more issue and I will be looking into the Lemon law! It may have 7000 miles on it now maybe.

1 out of 5 stars, 2019 Jeep Cherokee with less than 1000 miles.
Christian Corder,
Latitude 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 9A)

Vehicle stalls out for no good reason. i have yet to take it back to the dealer to be looked at, but from what I've gathered on forums, I am not the only one that has encountered my specific issues with the vehicle. i bought this jeep with 21 miles on it and it already is beginning to sound like an old vehicle with engine problems. always sounds like it wants to bog out when leaving a complete stop. the transmission doesn't seem to know when to switch gears. just an all around mess. we will see what the dealer finds, but from what I've read it doesn't seem like anyone has gotten a straight answer as to what might be happening.

2019 Jeep Cherokee Unveil

2019 Jeep Cherokee Unveil

SPEAKER 1: It's got got a new look, a new two-liter turbocharged engine under the hood, and a refreshed interior. This is the 2019 Jeep Cherokee. Up front you've got the new headlights, the new grille, out back, new taillights and a new tailgate that moves up and down with the swipe-under-foot motion in the back. And on the inside, we've got a refreshed dashboard, new screen, Apple CarPlay and the Android Auto capability. And underneath is the two-liter turbocharged engine, the same one that's shared with the Wrangler. It's got 270 horsepower, 295 pound feet of torque. Jeep says that will improve fuel economy and also make it faster 0 to 60. But you've still got the optional V6 engine, which makes this Jeep Cherokee capable of towing up to 4,500 pounds, which is a class-leading number. The Jeep Cherokee is one of the more comfortable vehicles in its class and it's also one of the most capable off-road. As you can see behind me, there's the Trailhawk model of the Cherokee, which has more aggressive approach and departure angles for off-road capability. Let's also take a look inside and see just what's been updated on the dashboard and with the new touchscreen. The big update is this new 8.4 inch Uconnect touchscreen. It's got Apple CarPlay, Android Auto connectivity, and pretty much everything else is the same. The design is a little bit different here with the vents, but all these buttons, knobs, pretty familiar to anybody that's been in Cherokee before. So you've got the updated center console. And this is one of two new two-tone color schemes for the interior. It gives the Cherokee a premium feel on the inside. And when you're on the highway, we expect this one will be just like the 2014 Cherokee we tested, which is quiet, comfortable, and got a good ride. When the Cherokee was redesigned in 2014, we bought one for a year-long test. We're big fans of the ride comfort and the way it rode on the highway. So we're looking forward to getting behind the wheel of this new, refreshed 2019 Jeep Cherokee. For more information, go to edmunds.com or subscribe to our YouTube channel.

When the Jeep Cherokee was redesigned in 2014, it had looks that were controversial to say the least. The grille and headlights were the most hotly debated design cues, and for 2019, the folks at Jeep have addressed those issues. The Jeep Cherokee gets a midcycle refresh for 2019, with a flatter front grille, new headlights, new taillights, and some updates beneath the surface, too.

Jeep Cherokee vs. the competition

Jeep Cherokee vs. Jeep Compass

The Jeep Compass is both smaller and less expensive than the Cherokee. It's a comfortable SUV on the road, and its 59.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space is actually more than the Cherokee's. However, the Compass isn't as competent off-road, even in Trailhawk trim, and has no engine upgrades available, so it's neither as good to drive or as capable to a tow vehicle.

If the Compass is the Cherokee's little brother, the Grand Cherokee is its big sister. The Grand Cherokee is larger and has both a higher towing capacity and more off-road capability. In higher trims, it's also a very well-equipped vehicle. If you're choosing between these two vehicles, it's mostly a question of how much capability you need and whether the Grand Cherokee is worth the extra money considering your needs.

Jeep Cherokee vs. Ford Escape

The Ford Escape is a zippy compact SUV that makes a great on-road runabout. It features Ford's user-friendly infotainment system and technology interface and a good amount of cargo space. The Escape can be an entertaining small crossover, especially when equipped with its own 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, but it can't touch the Cherokee for off-roading or towing.

More about the 2019 Jeep Cherokee

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee receives a much-needed revision to its exterior styling and a few desirable interior upgrades. We've always felt the Cherokee was the best small SUV for buyers who needed to tow or go off-road. In fact, nothing else in the little Jeep's class is as capable at either function. But its funky exterior styling always soured the experience a little, so we're glad to see a less polarizing design.

On the inside, the 2019 Cherokee gets an improved base infotainment system, with a 7-inch touchscreen, an extra storage bin for phones or other small items in the center console, and some minor upgrades to interior trim pieces. These changes are small, but they do make a positive quality-of-life difference.

While only the Cherokee Trailhawk is considered "Trail Rated" by Jeep, all trims are available with Jeep's Active Drive I all-wheel-drive system. The Latitude Plus, Limited and Overland trims can be optioned with the Active Drive II all-wheel-drive system, which has low-range capability and includes an off-road suspension package. The Trailhawk is equipped with Jeep's Active Drive Lock, which furthers the Cherokee's off-road potential. Otherwise, all trims come standard in a front-wheel-drive configuration.

The 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine (184 hp) is standard, and a 3.2-liter V6 engine (271 hp) is optional except in the Overland 4WD trim, which comes standard with the V6. For 2019 there's also a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that's torquier than the V6 but more fuel-efficient than the base engine. Of course, no matter what drivetrain you option, it's fed by a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Most of the trim differences come down to luxury and features. The Latitude is the base model, but it still comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights, roof rails, tinted glass, and the Uconnect 7-inch display system that features six speakers and USB and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Latitude Plus gets you keyless entry and push-button starting, satellite radio, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, and a power driver's seat.

The Trailhawk comes standard with the Active Drive II four-wheel-drive system, which incorporates low-range capability with a locking rear differential. It also includes all-terrain tires, more ground clearance, red tow hooks, different front and rear fascias to improve approach and departure angles, and skid plates to protect the underside of the car, and of course, the instantly recognizable matte-black hood decal to reduce hood glare at high hill-climbing angles.

The Limited and Overland trims move the Cherokee toward the luxury side of the equation and feature leather seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, a bigger driver information in the gauge cluster, and various convenience features such as dual-zone climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, blind-spot monitoring and remote start.

Overland trims feature additional upgrades, such as full leather package with wood accents, heated and ventilated power driver and front passenger seats with memory function, body-colored front and rear fascias, and 18-inch polished aluminum wheels.

With so many ways to go, it's critical you get your Cherokee just right for maximum enjoyment. Let Edmunds help you find and select the perfect 2019 Jeep Cherokee for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Jeep Cherokee SUV?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
