  • FCA shows off newly-designed Jeep Cherokee ahead of Detroit auto show

Spy photos already made it fairly clear that the refreshed 2019 Jeep Cherokee featured a new nose with unified headlights, but Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has now confirmed these suspicions by releasing the first official images of the updated SUV. Jeep designers have effectively swapped out the front fascia of the 2019 Cherokee with a more Jeep-like graphic. Jeep says it'll show more fuel-efficient engines for the Cherokee at the NAIAS in January too.

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.




And anoraks will note that the bars of the signature seven slated grille are shorter and chunkier (another nod to the Compass) and that the number plate has migrated from the rear bumper to a restyled tailgate. Well let's keep the trail-rated Trailhawk version with blackened hood aside for now. Unfortunately, those folks who hated the new look were the loudest, so the 2014 Cherokee was met with a fair amount of negativity based strictly on the front end design. Completing it all are what appear to be new alloy wheels although the ones seen here appear to be for the Limited trim. The SUV also comes with a new rear bumper with silver rear diffuser and dual chrome-tipped exhaust.

Fans might notice more wide-open headlights, among other changes. The current Cherokee comes with either a 2.4-liter I4 or a 3.2-liter V6, so we'd expect something small and turbocharged to debut in the 2019 Cherokee when Jeep finally announces it.
