  • 2019 Jeep Cherokee's New Face Revealed Ahead Of Detroit Debut

Set to make its official at the 2018 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Jeep stated that the updated Cherokee will have an authentic and more premium design, along with a more fuel efficient powertrain. While the 2019 edition of FCA's compact SUV, which slots right between the Compass and the Grand Cherokee in the Jeep lineup, will only be officially unveiled in January, early images have been leaked as a teaser of things to come.

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. Throw in more-conventional foglights below, and the new face splits the difference between the 2014-18 Cherokee and the redesigned Compass. New taillights still mounted high on the tailgate round out the changes outside.

There's a clue to that in the one and only interior shot, where the rev-counter is redlined just above 5500rpm, significantly lower than on the four or six-cylinder engines of the current Cherokee - but exactly the same as for the two-litre turbopetrol hybrid four recently introduced on the new Wrangler. Its V-6 engine option produces 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque.

Until then, we'll bring you all of the latest Jeep news as it unfolds in Detroit next month.

A rival to SUVs like the Land Rover Discovery Sport and higher-spec versions of the Volkswagen Tiguan, the next Cherokee trades the distinctive design of the outgoing vehicle for a look that's more similar to its siblings.
