The forthcoming 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk is a compact crossover SUV that brings plenty of uniqueness. The base Cherokee is a perfect in-town vehicle like its rivals such as Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.

Two engine choices, great tow rating, nice-looking and comfy interior and perfect exterior design are just some of the Trailhawk’s advantages.
The 2019 model will get the restyled front part and the interior will gain more upscale materials. On the other hand, we would like to see Trailhawk with less weight and more cargo space, but besides that, this is one perfect SUV. Generally, this off-road variant increases ride height, it uses an all-wheel drive as standard and is all about roughness and toughness.
