Jeep Cherokee Gets Its Compass On

2019 Jeep Cherokee finally corrects the headlamp horror

2019 Jeep Cherokee finally corrects the headlamp horror

Lots of manufacturers are now rushing to reveal previews of vehicles that will be refreshed or all-new at the upcoming 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January. Having said that, based on these official images, we can deduce a thing or two about the equipment, features and other offerings of the new Cherokee. The squinty, four-eyed face of the old vehicle has been swapped out for a much cleaner front end with sharp LED DRLs and Jeep's classic seven-slat grille.

Off-road-focused Trailhawk variants are expected to retain more muscular styling, with the inclusion of tow hooks, black cladding on the bumpers and wheelarches, all-terrain tyres and an increased ride height. In trailing only the Grand Cherokee and the Wrangler, the modern Cherokee has been Jeep's third-strongest-selling model over the past few years, with more than 150k examples sold during the first 11 months of 2017. The SUV also comes with electrically operable ORVMs, side cladding, and some bold character lines.

Perhaps just as importantly, thanks to the licence plate holder moving up from the bumper to a position just below the crease on the tailgate, Jeep has eliminated the acres of blank space that once dominated the Cherokee's rear end.

Engine details are yet to be revealed, but we expect the new Cherokee to come with Jeep's new 2-litre turbocharged diesel engine, along with the options V6 and the new 2.4-litre petrol motor.

As you can see in the image above, the split headlight design of the current Cherokee is gone and in its place is a far more traditional layout.
