"Reducing fuel consumption, it features stop-start technology, with shuts combustion down when sitting in traffic or at a red light. Additionally, this four-banger is fitted with a twin-scroll turbocharger and an electrically operated wastegate. Premium features like piston-cooling oil jets, plasma-coated rings, sodium-filled exhaust valves and a two-stage oil pump should make it feel very refined. Hollow, fabricated camshafts save 3.5 pounds over similar cast units."

What could go wrong?

I think it is a good evolution for the Jeep Cherokee to offer more options.

For me, I love the way my 2017 Jeep Cherokee Latitude looks. CarPlay would of been nice, but Siri Eyes Free with the Uconnect 3C 8.4" integrates extremely well. I just added a vent cell phone holder next to the head unit and viola I now have Apple Maps (which I prefer after Google maps steered me incorrectly towards Canada through a roundabout when I wanted to go to the Peace Arch on the US Side, not Canadian side) and everything from music, to my phone I use the uConnect 3C screens.

I am used to the Uconnect 740N from my prior 2013 Chrysler 200 and that integration was a lack of, it kinda worked but it was going from one familiar device to an alien head unit that kept it's own identity. At least with Siri Eyes Free, I can press once for the Uconnect commands and twice for Siri.

Looks the same to me. And never considered it ugly. Far from it.
Start/stop tech? Should have added a permanent off switch.

Shaky.... you dirty dog.... Now I have to go scrub my eyeballs and brain with bleach! Looks like the inside of a friggin' spaceship to me. One of the many reasons I love the look of the classic old school XJ's. lol.

The 2019 doesn't look any different from my 2014 except for the tail lights. Improvements would definitely have to be under the hood.
