The handful of images that Jeep released Tuesday show a 2019 Cherokee with angles baked into its seven-slot grille, headlights and LED running lamps integrated into a single unit, and revised taillights.
The Jeep Cherokee returned to the brand's lineup for the 2014 model year after a 13-year hiatus. The odd styling has often cast a big shadow over an otherwise respectable vehicle, something FCA is addressing with the refreshed 2019 Cherokee. The rest of the front fascia also looks a little softer and rounder than on the last version, but there's still a good amount of the pointy and wedgy look of the current model to keep this new one instantly identifiable as a Jeep Cherokee.
Fans might notice more wide-open headlights, among other changes. For 2019, Jeep will be adding even more fuel-efficient powertrain options to the lineup.
The Italian-American automaker on Tuesday released four images of the SUV ahead of the vehicle's formal unveiling next month at the Detroit auto show.
To go along with these changes, there's also a new bonnet, a redesigned front bumper, and lightly tweaked front quarter panels.
Jeep released a few photos of the 2019 Cherokee ahead of its Detroit auto show debut, and lo and behold, the freakish stacked-headlight design is gone. The fog light placement appears to vary based on the trim. Plus, Jeep's U.S. arm also features a picture of a Cherokee Trailhawk, which may or may not come to the United Kingdom armed with a chunkier body kit and a V6 petrol.
