2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited 4X4

An Automotive Love Affair
By Joe Mavilia

Overview:

This is the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Limited. But from my experience it is not ‘limited’ off road. I’m sure other competitors are capable but Jeep emphasizes off road prowess. I’ve had great off road trips that Jeep just exudes confidence in that environment.

General Information:

It is assembled in- Belvidere, Illinois, USA; Parts- US/Canada 69%, Mexico 20%; Engine & Transmission– USA; Classification is- Small SUV; Cars from Jeep- Cherokee, Compass, Commander, Grand Cherokee, Liberty, Patriot, Renegade, Wrangler, Wrangler JK, Wrangler JK Unlimited and Wrangler Unlimited.

Handling & Performance:

Jeep delivers all that I expect in performance. It’s fast and responsive and a good size for all around driving needs. I always find when I drive my large F350 Ford truck I appreciate smaller vehicles, where you can go to the market and take up only one parking space.

Styling:

Jeep is the official the Icon to designate going off road and generally displays a consistent view of its rich heritage.

Fit and Finish:

Very good.

Cost:

Equal to the competition and if you opted for the technology group, an upgrade in luxury, a full sunroof, you’d add $7,000.

Conveniences and comfort:

As equipped (below) I’m a happy camper, but if I were using your money I would add every option, but since I’m using mine I would include crash avoidance and adaptive cruise control with Stop and Go capability. That would add about $1,000. The rest I could do without.

Consumer Recommendations:

A lot to choose from because SUV’s are so popular. In addition, they are profitable for manufacturers, so you can deal effectively – so test drive all to find the best for your sensibilities.
