No significant changes for 2019.With a distinctive blend of off-road chops, decent highway manners and around-town maneuverability, the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee is designed to meet the needs of a wide range of shoppers looking for an upscale midsize SUV.

PROS
Plush interior with plentiful luxury and technology
Enough off-road ability to conquer practically any trail
Available V8 engines offer substantial power
Impressive tow ratings for the class

CONS
Firm ride quality may disappoint, even with air suspension
Limited cargo capacity compared to top rivals
Underwhelming acceleration with base V6

The 2019 Jeep Compass stays true to the brand’s off-road formula, but bends toward usability rather than capability.

Pros
Handsome exterior
Generous, standard 7.0-inch touchscreen
Rugged Trailhawk option
Good customization options
Respectable fuel economy, for now

Cons
Indecisive 9-speed automatic
Active safety features a spend-up option
Mixed crash-test scores
Three will fit in the back in a pinch, literally

The 2018 Nissan Kicks is a high-riding compact hatchback, but its spec sheet doesn't look very thrilling.The 2018 Nissan Kicks is a far more conventional crossover than its Juke predecessor. That doesn't mean it's a dullard in the looks department, though.

Pros
Distinctive styling
Standard automatic emergency braking
City-size dimensions

Cons
Decidedly short on power
No AWD?
Could be a great value

Replacing the Juke at the small end of Nissan’s SUV lineup, the Kicks is a cheeky entry into the subcompact-crossover class. The sole engine is a 125-hp four-cylinder mated with a CVT and front-wheel drive, so it loses the turbocharged Juke’s fun factor, but it attempts to make up for that with more interior space and plenty of features. Forward-collision warning and autonomous emergency braking are standard, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are optional. It goes on sale in June 2018.
Despite the jump in size, Nissan hasn’t seen fit to augment anything under the hood. In fact, it has done exactly the opposite by installing a naturally aspirated 1.6-liter inline-four in the Kicks as the sole powerplant. It produces a paltry 125 horsepower and 115 lb-ft of torque, down 63 ponies and 62 lb-ft compared with the Juke’s turbocharged 1.6-liter unit. Further sapping the fun, the Kicks comes only with a continuously variable automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

Nissan has introduced the newest member of its lineup, the 2018 Kicks, which slots into Nissan's SUV lineup below the Rogue Sport. It hits dealerships in summer 2018.

We're not sure what the introduction of another small utility vehicle means for Nissan's existing subcompact SUV, the Juke. There's no official word from Nissan yet on the Juke's fate, but if I had to guess, it's just a matter of time before the Kicks ... well, kicks the Juke to the curb.

The Kicks will be offered in three trim levels: Kicks S, Kicks SV and Kicks SR.
