Jeep Cherokee adopts more conventional styling

2019 Jeep Cherokee

Jeep will unveil the 2019 Cherokee at the upcoming 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, so we'll have details then. The facelift sees the narrow-slit lights gone in favour of fuller headlamps with DRLs, joined by the American brand's iconic seven slot grille in-between that features across its line-up. 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 hardcore Trailhawk version shows the same distinctive red tow hooks upfront outside a unique honeycomb black bumper, Firestone clad black alloys and black roof rails and accents on the exterior trim, along with the "trail rated" plaque that adorns all off-road tested Trailhawk variants.

The rear of the crossover has also had some cosmetic enhancement, such as the large slab of a rear hatch now being nicely broken up with the registration plate mounting position, which delivers a tail that looks a lot less bulky than it does today. The SUV also comes with a new rear bumper with silver rear diffuser and dual chrome-tipped exhaust. So, say goodbye to the polarizing split headlight design that made the Cherokee truly a standout model in the Jeep range - for better or worse - and say welcome to the new face that has a much more conventional look.

Fans might notice more wide-open headlights, among other changes. Globally, the mid-size SUV will go on sale towards the end of 2018, after its debut at Detroit, and while there is no official word on it yet, we do expect the SUV to reach the Indian shores as well.
