In addition to the new design, among the major new features of the 2019 version are the new generation of Uconnect multimedia system, which has gained touch screens with zoom function and connectivity with Android Auto and Apple Car Play. "The transmission has gained new software, the trunk is 9% larger and the car is on average 70 kg lighter, varying according to the version and configuration", details Aquino. "It's more modern and more premium", summarizes the brand manager.
Available in 6 versions (Sport, Longitude FWD, Longitude 4x4, Limited 4x4, Overland 4x4 and Trailhawk 4x4), the 2019 Jeep Cherokee arrives with greater comfort and convenience, providing the versatility of an everyday car with a surprising dynamism on the road. All of which is the result of independent suspension on all four wheels and high torsional rigidity of the body. There are two consecrated engine options: the Pentastar V6 3.2 and the MultiAir2 Tigershark 2.4. "The Cherokee stands as the most capable SUV on the market, and perfectly blends the best of both on-road and off-road worlds. It is a reference both in sophistication and luxury as well as in off-road capability", said Tania Silvestri, director of the Jeep brand in Latin America.
"The 2019 Jeep Cherokee has more than 80 safety features available, including cameras, sensors and radar. There is also the frontal collision warning system and the adaptive cruise control", reports Aquino. Another novelty in this year's model is a parallel and perpendicular parking assistance system with almost no driver intervention (semi-automatic).
