The Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk is a five-door, five-seat medium SUV, and it's only available in automatic 4x4 guise.

The $48,450 Trailhawk sits above the $35,950 Sport, the $41,950 Longitude and the $46,950 Limited, which uses the same engine.

Updated for 2019 with new front and rear bumpers, LED lights front and rear, and a composite bonnet and tailgate, the Trailhawk comes with cloth/leather trim, heated, vented and powered seats, auto headlights and wipers, 18-inch alloys, sat nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

It also comes with a dual-range transfer case, taller suspension, underbody protection, three locking diffs and a bespoke terrain mapping program.
