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. A redesigned rear bumper and what appears to be elongated exhaust pipe finishers complete the revisions at the back of the 2019 Cherokee. The rest of the front bumper and grille also look a bit softer and rounder, but there's still a hint of the wedge-y pointy look of the previous generation that helps keep the crossover immediately identifiable as a Cherokee.
So far Jeep is withholding any detail on the new Cherokee until it is revealed next month at the Detroit Auto Show.
Perhaps the most obvious change when looking at the images of the new Cherokee is the front fascia that now has a much stronger resemblance to other Jeep models, such as the Compass and the Grand Cherokee.
Although Jeep has revealed the crossover's design nearly a month ahead of its in-the-flesh debut, the company is keeping details about the car's drivetrain and specifications under wraps for now. The rear also gets new taillights, that look similar to the Jeep Compass.
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. The fog lights now sit in the spot where the current design has its lower headlight component and the headlights are one solid unit.
"The most capable mid-size sport-utility vehicle (SUV) boasts a new, authentic and more premium design, along with even more fuel-efficient powertrain options".
