The specific speed control of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk is a type of cruise control for tracking rocks at low speeds. By pressing the button, the Cherokee can fully take on the acceleration and braking tasks, effortlessly traversing a section of the rock filled course. Personally, I prefer to have more control in this type of situation, but even if it may not be very necessary for road managers, it is good to know that the technology is there for those who want it or for improve their driving skills.
Exterior and Interior
For the 2019 model year, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk has received a major update. There is no longer the controversial design of the stepped headlights with LED lights and flashing lights and the set of separate main lights just below. In contrast, the crossover has a single cluster with a more conventional look. As the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk has different bumpers to improve approach, exit and break angles, its fog lights are smaller LED units located closer to the main headlamp group.
Jump into the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk cockpit and you’ll find FCA’s Uconnect 4 Infotainment System. The unit of our tester did not include on board navigation, but an 8.4 inch touch screen with integration of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Like its predecessors, the latest version of Uconnect is easy to use thanks to its sensitive touch screen and shortcut buttons. Most functions, including air conditioning and heated / ventilated seats, are on the touch screen, but they are not hidden in hard to find menus. Android Auto gives you access to apps like Waze, Spotify, Google Maps, Pandora and Google Play Music. Our tester had a slight problem with Google Maps, who still thought we were in Moab, Utah, before realizing we were in Los Angeles. Instead, we used Waze to take us to the congested roads of Los Angeles, and it worked wonders, told us about the dangers of the road in advance and provided us with faster alternative routes to our destination. The 2019 Cherokee offers generous space for four passengers, but five passengers are in a hurry. The comfort levels of the front and rear passengers are respectable, but the lumbar front seats are a little aggressive, even if you hit them all the time. Otherwise, the front seats will keep you in place when you leave the sidewalk and start playing on the floor. The cargo capacity of the Cherokee 2019 is 25.8 cubic feet behind the rear seats or 27.6 cubic feet with the cargo floor lowered. Do you need extra space? Doubling the rear seats and cargo space extends to 54.7 cubic feet.
The most notable addition to the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk is a 2.0 liter turbo 4 available with 270 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque suitable for a nine speed automatic transmission. On the track, our tester reached 60 mph in 7.6 seconds and finished the quarter mile in 16.0 seconds at 85.9 mph. Erick Ayapana, editor of the associated road tests, said he liked the turbo engine to fit the transmission, which moved smoothly and maintained speed near the red line before changing. Leaving 60 mph took 139 feet. Ayapana has discovered that while the Cherokee dives under intense braking, it has excellent body control and a pedal feel. On the skidpad, the 2019 Cherokee generated 0.76 g of lateral acceleration. He finished number eight in 27.8 seconds with an average of 0.61 g. Editor in chief Chris Walton said the Cherokee had a good brake bite and was cornered more than expected during an off-road run. However, Walton also noted that the transmission takes time to respond in manual mode and that he would sometimes reject his shifts.
