The Jeep Cherokee will finally get a set of cosmetic revisions, nearly five years after it was first shown with its controversial front-end styling. New headlights are likely to be the most noticeable revisions.
Meanwhile, the grille is expected to be more like the one seen on the 2017 Compass. The rear end is also made to look more conventional, with the license plate moved up from the bumper and the highly revised taillights.
Inside, Jeep will offer upgraded infotainment systems and higher-grade materials in order to make the Cherokee more refined than the less expensive Compass. Under the hood, however, the Cherokee might add a high-performance Trackhawk model using the 2.0-litre turbo four that's destined for the 2018 Wrangler.
The 2019 Cherokee is expected to be unveiled in early 2018, possibly at the Detroit Auto Show.
