2018 Jeep Cherokee Trim Level
Posted on March 15, 2020
In 1984 Jeep created the Crossover SUV category with the introduction of the XJ series Cherokee. Over the past 34 years Jeep has continually refined the Cherokee, adding comfort, convenience, and safety features but never losing sight that any vehicle that carries the Jeep name must feature class-leading off road capabilities. The ultimate expression of that philosophy to date is the 2019 Jeep Cherokee.
To meet a broad range of customer needs and provide the highest levels of customization to buyers, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee is available in five separate and distinction models with a variety of engine, drivetrain, and interior options.
Rather than list each model we here at Caledon Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram have broken down the major component systems of the Cherokee, explain the differences, and then provide a summary of which models offer that feature.
