Yes, it is a powerful and beautiful Jeep Cherokee! Top of the line model Overland starting at only $36,745 MSRP.
According to Jeep, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Overland offers the best 4×4 and All-Weather Capability on its class.
Jeep is one of the most prestigious brands part of the FCA group, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. This brand is the result of 75 years of legendary heritage, producing authentic SUVs with great capability, craftsmanship and versatility.
The Jeep brand lineup includes the Cherokee, Compass, Gladiator, Grand Cherokee, Renegade and Wrangler, producing a full line of strong vehicles with a sense of security to handle any adventure.
Most Jeep models sold outside the U.S. are available in both left and right-hand drive configurations and with gasoline or diesel powertrain options.
The Cherokee a Real Native American Jeep
Jeep and Cherokee are car names that we all know since we can remember. Probably your dad, your uncle or maybe your grandpa owned a Jeep or a Cherokee. This vehicle is named after the Native American Cherokee tribe.
The Cherokee is the younger brother of Jeep’s most successful Grand Cherokee, made already during several generations, since 1974.
The Cherokee is a good competitor in the mid-size SUV segment offering a wide range of trims and options with good power and comfort for its segment.
Even if the Cherokee has been manufactured during several generations, Jeep keeps refreshing its image and adding new features that makes the Cherokee look like a new kid on the block.
The 2019 Jeep Cherokee has been updated with a new exterior style with larger headlights, some interior upgrades, such as a storage compartment for phones, and featuring a new more powerful turbocharged 2.0-liter engine.
The 2019 Cherokee line offers 8 trim levels, starting with the Cherokee Latitude priced at only $25,490, and continuing with the Latitude Plus, the Altitude, Upland, TrailHawk, Limited, High Altitude, and finally ending with the top of the line Overland at $36,745 MSRP, the one that I am driving today with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder (I-4) engine Optional included and 4×4.
Premium Model Overland
The Cherokee Overland trim was introduced to the Cherokee family at the New England International Auto Show. The idea behind the Overland was to expand the lineup delivering a new Cherokee model with a high level of luxury and strong capability. The Overland is inspired by the Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland model.
The Overland may be the premium top of the line trim, but its price is very low and attractive for a fully loaded Jeep Cherokee offering the best of the best. Overland drivers can enjoy a more luxurious package loaded with premium features and tons of standard equipment.

Would you say “I do”
The 2019 Overland offers premium features with a good level of luxury, even if this Cherokee can take you on any off-road, it is better associated with the characteristics of the city than the adventures and power of other SUVs.
You can feel secure with a Jeep. I would never forget how I was hit in the back by another car while making a stop sign driving through New England on another Jeep Cherokee. I walked outside of the car to check the damage, and nothing absolutely happened, not even a scratch on the rear bumper. These cars are built to last, and are stronger than many other cars.
The best reason to say “yes I do” and buy the 2019 Cherokee is because you want a small SUV that can drive off-road and take you everywhere with confidence, for a reasonable price near $37K.
Some of the main competitors of the Cherokee are the Toyota RAV4, the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5 and the Ford Escape, but each car is unique with its own advantages.
