Jeep Cherokee Gets Its Compass On

Jeep Cherokee Gets Its Compass On

The Cherokee will debut in full at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 16. Then, there is a new, more fuel-efficient engine line-up, the details of which will be revealed next month.

The upcoming Jeep Cherokee gets an updated front more in line with the other Jeep siblings. It looks as though the current Cherokee's split headlights have now been merged into single units on either side of the grille, which has resulted in a much more conventional nose than it has at the moment.

Firstly, the new-gen model comes with an all-new face with a larger and more stylish set of headlamps with integrated turn signal lights and stylish LED daytime running lights. Well let's keep the trail-rated Trailhawk version with blackened hood aside for now. Completing it all are what appear to be new alloy wheels although the ones seen here appear to be for the Limited trim.

Toyota employees step up for Salvation Army
If you'd like to donate money or items you can go to the Salvation Army Headquarters on South Washington in Bismarck. Suggs said there are around 2,000 employees (including on-site supplier workers) at the Blue Springs plant.

Perhaps just as importantly, thanks to the licence plate holder moving up from the bumper to a position just below the crease on the tailgate, Jeep has eliminated the acres of blank space that once dominated the Cherokee's rear end. The SUV also comes with a new rear bumper with silver rear diffuser and dual chrome-tipped exhaust.

The Auburn Hills, Michigan-based automaker released four photos of the SUV that showed its new design, wider headlights and some other changes. What we do know is that the 2019 Cherokee will gain some new engine options, which will likely include the turbocharged 2.0-liter "Hurricane" engine found in the all-new Wrangler JL.
