The 2019 Jeep Cherokee is a heavily revised version of what many consider to be the most off-road-capable compact crossover on the planet. It sacrifices some interior room and carrying capacity in its quest for superior off-pavement prowess, but that’s what makes a Jeep a Jeep, isn’t it? Jeep aficionados are more than willing to make that trade.
When it comes to off-pavement challenges, the 2019 Cherokee is able to negotiate terrain you shouldn’t even attempt in most crossovers. And that is only part of the Cherokee’s personality. Not nearly as purpose-built an off-roader as the Jeep Wrangler, it is also a perfectly competent five-passenger grocery-getter and commuter car.
