Unlike the compact crossovers we get to see on the road today, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee in comparison to them is actually much more capable in treading through the off beaten paths. Till now the majority of people who go for such kind of vehicles limit its use mainly to the family excursions or daily commute through the work-week traffic, the Cherokee with the Jeep brand name can do lot more.
What has Changed for 2019
At the Fresno Jeep dealer showroom we were told that the 2019 Jeep Cherokee continues to run with its V-6 engine even for the new 2019 edition.It is the standard engine option that we see to be paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. That is where one can observe some mild updates that helps the sincere efforts of Jeep to reduce the total weight of this crossover. Compared with its last version of Overland that got tested through many fuel loops, the latest version of 2019 earned this time a 25 mpg on the highway whichgot improved by 1 mpg than before. This combination of power train even could net another 10 miles on the highway range. Both the results place the Cherokee at the mid-range for its capacity on saving fuel.
EPA Estimated Fuel Economy Rating
The 2019 Cherokee from the brand Jeep gets a new turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four packs to acquire more torque and better EPA estimates than its V-6 alternative. The EPA estimates that was done on its all-wheel-drive version was able to earn 21 mpg in the city drive and 29 mpg on the highway. Those are numbers that got 2 mpg better than the earlier V-6 one when driven with the all-wheel drive option and as a result was identical to that of the base engine. On the other hand, when paired with the front-wheel drive, the turbo four engine got an EPA estimation counting 23 mpg for the city drives and 31 mpg on the highway, and the difference was appreciable. Again, those were estimates that came out to be 2 to 3 mpg better in comparison to the front-wheel-drive V-6 power train option and were nearly identical with that of the base engine.
According to both the EPA and multiple real-world testing, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee has a fuel economy that is average in its class.
Other Reasons to Buy the Cherokee
Apart from the fuel economy that might not alone stand enough as a reason to buy the 2019 Jeep Cherokee, there are many other that might get your mind fixed on this crossover. When we got to see the Cherokee at the Fresno Jeep dealership showroom, the handsome exterior was enough to stick our gaze for quite a long time. Its optional power trains showed that they can tow up to 4500 pounds of weight while a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine again brought us back to the point where we were looking for greater fuel efficient vehicles, and the Cherokee did stand there with an improved efficiency in saving the fuel.
