  • 2019 Jeep Cherokee finally corrects the headlamp horror

Jeep has unveiled its updated Cherokee medium SUV ahead of its public debut at the Detroit motor show next month, shedding the divisive styling of the current model.

Official images of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee SUV have been released and as expected the new-gen model comes with a host of changes. The range is topped by a Trailhawk with a 3.2-litre V6 petrol that outputs 268bhp. Jeep hasn't revealed anything other than these images, so we'll have to wait until the full debut in January to find out about any mechanical changes.

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.

The hardcore Trailhawk version shows the same distinctive red tow hooks upfront outside a unique honeycomb black bumper, Firestone clad black alloys and black roof rails and accents on the exterior trim, along with the "trail rated" plaque that adorns all off-road tested Trailhawk variants. The SUV also comes with electrically operable ORVMs, side cladding, and some bold character lines.

Currently, with 8 Cherokee trims available - from the entry-level Latitude with FWD to the more capable Overland - Jeep has only offered a single 2.4L I4 MultiAir engine across the board. The cabin, on the other hand, borrows its cues and colour pattern from the new Compass, with slightly different dashboard design that gets larger aircon vents, a better-equipped centre console and steering wheels and possible slightly larger and more comfortable seats.
