Jeep Cherokee Reviews

Car and Driver said the 2019 Cherokee is “easier on the eyes, even easier to drive.” U.S. News agreed, saying it has “commendable off-road abilities and a smooth ride on paved roads.” Car and Driver agree, saying they made “the kind of change that rights a wrong.” Below is what the top automotive critics are saying about the new Cherokee.

  • Edmunds: “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.”
  • Car and Driver: “While the Cherokee’s nose job is technically a simple restyling, it’s the kind of change that rights a wrong, accompanied by a sense of relief to finally see it corrected. The Cherokee’s new LED headlamps are standard, and while the grille’s seven slots are still chamfered, they’re blunter and stronger-looking.”
  • U.S. News: “If you’re looking for an off-roader that can also serve as a comfortable daily cruiser, the Cherokee is the right compact SUV for you. All Cherokees equipped with four-wheel drive come standard with the Selec-Terrain system, which allows you to choose from five terrain settings for various road conditions. “
  • Kelley Blue Book: “…obvious advantage of the Trailhawk for example. Its exceptional off-road prowess is reason enough to buy a Cherokee. The standard Cherokees are also solid off-road machines, and generally more confident in the rough stuff than their competitors. There’s the 4,500-pound towing capacity as well, which doubles many others in its class. The new turbo engine has the makings of a hit. With the new styling, the Cherokee is even pretty.”
