“If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” No doubt there are certain situations in which this old adage rings true. Just don’t ever mention it to anybody at FCA HQ. From the leadership team to designers to engineers and so on, each person at 1000 Chrysler Drive is always and actively engaged in developing new and better products, even when current products are still exceptional. Progress simply doesn’t happen otherwise.
Take the evolution of the Jeep® Cherokee. What was and has been an extremely capable midsize SUV since its debut in model year 2014 is now even better. Credit for that goes to a more premium design and an all-new, advanced available 2.0-liter direct-injection inline four-cylinder engine engineered to enhance both performance and efficiency.
“A stunning, more premium design and the addition of our new efficient 2.0-liter turbo engine make the new 2019 Jeep Cherokee even more desirable in the mid-size SUV segment,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global. “In addition, Cherokee builds on its benchmark 4×4 capability and on-road dynamics with refinement and style, a host of new attributes, powertrains and the latest technology that is perfectly situated for consumers worldwide.”
Available in five different trim configurations – Latitude, Latitude Plus, Limited, Overland and the rugged Trail Rated® Trailhawk, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is manufactured in the United States at the Belvidere Assembly Plant in Belvidere, Illinois. Look for it at your local BusinessLink dealership starting in the first quarter of 2018. And, in the meantime, enjoy this replay of its official unveiling at the North American International Auto Show in January.
