    Cherokee doesn't have teh e torque so that means the 4 cylinder is good all around

    Ok, went to NAIAS today. A few comments, (most based off the TrailHawk Elite that was there, and that I spent a significant amount of time with, which may be the "hero" car from the press release pics):
    • Still really comfortable for me
    • The phone cubby in front of the shifter is bigger (deeper) than I expected
    • I like the rear LED plate lights
    • New USB plus for second row passengers
    • New overhead lighting for second row passengers, near the overhead grab handles
    • The revised center console that holds the new rear USB plugs eats in to rear seat leg room for the rear middle passenger
    • Rear load floor is no longer hinged, but rather it just lays in place (and thus, easily removable) but has lost the strap that holds it open from the roof
    • Rear seat no longer slides forwards/backwards in TH Elite
    • Storage rack in cargo area is gone, freeing up the space, still room under the rear floor (even with the full size spare) for "stuff"
    • Front passenger seat no longer folds flat (now power seat tho)
    • TH does not get the gloss piano black radio bezel
    • TH gets a dark grey accent colour on steering wheel, instead of the silver colour that was there before
    • Looks like the FCW button is gone from under the screen (possibly? This was on a TH without ACC)
    • No more locking fuel door

    I'm almost positive that the 2019 Cherokee still has a strap and hook to hold up the load floor. Perhaps it had been ripped out of the model you examined?

    I've been checking for that daily since the "reveal", so it would make sense that it went up today when I haven't been at a computer to check lol

    Here's a direct link: http://www.jeep.com/hostc/bmo/models.do?modelYearCode=CUJ201908

    It was a different floor than before, and not hinged at all, and didn't have the flaps at the back to cover any gaps made by sliding the seats forward.

    Those that still had the original floor had the strap I think

    ^Yeah, it didn't have that floor

    A dark interior, so you can't really see:

    The under floor storage is still nice in the TH with the full size spare:

    The cool thing about the revised floor for those models that don't have a full size spare tire, is that you can put the floor in a lower position and increase the rear cargo space.

    Sweet!

    Glad to see some media shots with the silver TH

    How might someone like me get access to the high res versions of those?

    I still find it weird that the FCW disable button is gone from the dash for 2019, leaving a blank button in an obvious spot, even on an Overland.
