2019 Jeep Wranger or 2019 Jeep Cherokee – Which One Fits Your Lifestyle the Best?

October 10th, 2019 by

The Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Cherokee are well-known across the country for their variety of powerful, comfortable, and safety-securing features. We’ll compare the two for the 2019 model year below so that you can get a firm idea of their similarities and differences. 

The Power Under Their Hoods

The Cherokee for 2019 bears a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, generating 180-horsepower and 170 pound-feet of torque. It is available with two other engines. The first is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder with start-stop technology and a turbocharger that produces 270-horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The second is a 3.2-liter V-6 generating 271 horsepower and 239 pound-feet of torque.

The Wrangler for 2019 is equipped with a Pentastar 3.6-liter V-6 engine which generates 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It is available with auto start and stop and hybrid technology. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged eTorque engine generating 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque is also available.

The Comforts of Their Interiors

Relax in any of the Cherokee’s five black, gray, or brown perforated leather trim seats. Use the voice-activated interface to listen to your favorite music, find your way with the navigation system, or browse your infotainment system’s apps. Take in the sights and sounds around you through the use of the CommandView Dual-Pane Panoramic Sunroof. In connectivity, the Cherokee is king.

The Wrangler has cloth and leather seating options, with heated front seats available. It has an advanced dash display that allows you to check your navigation system with the same glance that you watch your speed and gas levels with. The impressive Alpine Premium Audio System includes a 552-watt 12-channel amplifier, a rear subwoofer, and nine speakers. Active noise cancellation reduces the prevalence of unwanted sounds in the Wrangler. If you are a music-loving driver, this is the one for you.

The Safety in Their Designs

The 2019 Cherokee boasts an engine immobilizer, so it is tough to steal. It is also equipped with parking sensors, a rearview camera, and a fuel-theft prevention device to keep your gas where it should be. It features high-tech safety systems like lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and parallel and perpendicular parking assistance. That last feature is impressive — most vehicles with similar parking features have parallel or perpendicular parking assistance, not both.

The 2019 Wrangler comes with an array of air bags and supplemental air bags to maximize impact reduction. It guards itself with a theft-deterrent system that will alert you if your vehicle is being tampered with. More high-tech options include blind spot monitoring, cross-path detection, and rear parking assistance safety systems.

Both of these well-known vehicles have a great deal more to offer than we can cover here, but with the help of the experts at Ray Laethem Motor Village, you can discover them all. Take a look at their impressive inventory today. They’ll help you find the perfect one to take home.
