2019 Jeep Cherokee ditches squinty headlights for good

2019 Jeep Cherokee ditches squinty headlights for good

The current Jeep Cherokee, when it was launched, was frowned upon or its squinty split headlamps. So when Fiat-Chrysler flung the covers off the 2019 Jeep Cherokee facelift, the frontal change wasn’t unexpected.

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee shows off a look that mixes traits from both the bigger Grand Cherokee as well as the smaller Compass. The quirky twin headlamps gave way to a more conventional setup. The fog lamps are placed low down in the bumper for the lower versions and right below the headlamps in the Trailhawk version. The grill-in-hood design is retained for another generation. Changes at the rear are not so flashy. The license plate is now mounted on the tailgate instead of the bumper. Apart from that and a few other minor changes to the tail lamps and rear skid plate, there is nothing much to write home about. The interior is carried over from the older model with minimal changes.

Jeep says that the 2019 Jeep Cherokee will be offered with a more fuel-efficient mill under its hood. So expect something small and turbocharged to show up closer to its launch. It certainly will be smaller than the 2.4-litre inline-4 and 3.2-litre V6 engines that the current-gen Cherokee comes with.

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee will be fully revealed at the 2018 Detroit Motor Show slated to happen in the next month. More details about the SUV will be available closer to the same.

  1. Whoops “3.6 L…currently” or 3.2? A little research goes along way.
