Latest spy pictures of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee published by Auto Blog reveal significant changes to the fascia. The facelift gets a more conventional headlamp setup accompanied by minor updates to the rest of the exterior.
Unlike the split setup of the outgoing model, which features LED DRLs next to the grille with the actual headlight mounted on the bumper, the updated Jeep Cherokee features more conventional units flanking the grille. The rather sleek looking headlamps feature black bezels along with hockey stick style LED DRLs.
The spy media also provides evidence of a new flatter grille that replaces the peaked grille present on the current model. The signature seven-slot grille appears to be broader. At the back, the changes appear to be limited to a new tail lamp graphics, rear hatch mounted number plate, and increased dark grey finish on the rear bumper. Aside from the changes above, the rest of the exterior seems quite similar to the current Jeep Cherokee.
Images of the cabin shared by Auto Blog reveal a dashboard layout that seems to have been carried over unchanged. It features the same 8.4-inch touchscreen as the current Cherokee and the instrument cluster also looks identical.
FCA owned Jeep could unveil the 2019 Jeep Cherokee towards the end of 2017 followed by a launch early next year. The current 2.4 L I4 Multiair and 3.2 L V6 gasoline engines could be carried forward unchanged.
