What's New for 2019: Jeep

November 13, 2018

It'll be hard for Jeep to follow up on last year. For 2019, America's off-road brand redesigned its Wrangler to be more comfortable in town and more capable where there's no cell service.

This year, the newsmakers are the popular Cherokee and Renegade crossover SUVs. Both models see newly optional turbo-4 engines added to their lineups—a 2.0-liter in the Cherokee and a 1.3-liter in the pint-size Renegade. 

Otherwise, Jeep mostly shuffled trim packages around its lineup. Enthusiasts can look forward to a new Jeep pickup truck based on the Wrangler that's due any day.
