2019 Jeep® Cherokee is ‘fun to drive’ and easy to park

When the Jeep® team began work on the 2019 Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Cherokee Engineering Manager Rich Silbert said they “really touched everything and tried to think of everything.”

Silbert provided that assessment as he recently took to the road in a new Cherokee Overland to highlight some of the new features and amenities in the most capable midsize SUV available.

Some of the new features available on the Jeep Cherokee include:

  • A 2.0-liter turbo engine with 400 N•m (295 ft-lb) of torque with 270 hp
  • The front and rear of the vehicle have been “rethought”
  • The license plate was moved up to the liftgate
  • The hands-free liftgate is operated by making a kicking motion under the bumper to open
  • Park assist and unpark assist
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Five USB ports

“I think this one fits more into the Jeep stable,” Silbert said.

Hello from the Motor City! I’m Edward Cardenas and I’m multimedia editor for FCA US. As a lifelong Detroiter, I have been surrounded by the automotive industry. I’ve had members of my immediate and extended family work in the industry. I’ve covered it as a journalist and advocated for it as a communications professional. I have also experienced the thrills of the industry while riding in a race car at nearly 200 miles per hour. Having this breadth of experience, I look forward to drawing upon my experiences to bring a wide range of stories, photos and videos about Chrysler, FIAT and Alfa Romeo to FCA Digital Media. When I’m not covering my brands, I’m spending time with my wife and two boys.
