    Pics are there. It's an odd layout on mobile.

    Maybe they are getting blocked for some reason. I can't see them on my PC.

    I’m especially impressed with the back view.

    There’s no need for renderings and spy shots now.

    Just as they did with the Wrangler, Jeep has pre-launched the Cherokee, presumably to avoid being buried under an avalanche of pickup truck news in Detroit.

    [​IMG]

    The company has not yet announced any actual information, just these images. The silver car is the Limited; the red one is the Trailhawk.

    [​IMG]

    The Limited is the top of the line for luxury features, while the Trailhawk is the only one truly off-road-capable. In the first generation of the “KL” series, the Trailhawk was, according to insiders, capable of conquering the Rubicon Trail, at least as it was re-created by Chrysler shortly after acquiring AMC (to make sure that Jeep had a standard test run).

    [​IMG]

    The rear end no longer has a large, featureless area, and the tail-lights, at least on the Limited, are clearly piped LEDs. It appears that the headlights have been moved up to a more conventional location, while their former housings now contain fog lights — at least, in the Limited. The Trailhawk has fog lights in a completely new spot, possibly to avoid trail damage.

    What can we expect for the 2019 Jeep Cherokee?

    Read the whole post here.

    I actually don't care for it as much as the original. Quite generic. The back especially is overly busy, and reminds me of recent Hondas.

    ETA; I take that back, the back reminds me more of Toyotas.

    I think the back is *MUCH* better. Doesn't look half-finished, like someone forgot to finish designing it.

    As for the front, I think it's better, but it still has that funky angle in the grille I don't care for. The grille should have been rounded or flat, versus having that weird angulation. My two cents are free, here, of course.

    You could almost say the grille was inspired by the Wrangler JL. ;)

    The front, I could get used to. The back? Ugh.

    The first thing I saw in the JL was the angle in the grille and then how it was reduced compared to the KL, and not so awkwardly protruding.

    What an improvement!!!

    Some photos of the old for comparison purposes.
    [​IMG]

    The front looks a lot better in the new one.

    [​IMG]

    Some slight differences in the plastic surrounding the infotainment screen. The new one looks nicer IMO.

    [​IMG]

    The rear end is a tremendous improvement.

    It may not have such a unique design, which it means it is more generic. But in this case, I think that was an improvement.

    I like what they did, given the constraints.

    Im not tjinking this is a home-run, but I do hope sales improve.

    Quick photoshop... it's not exactly Granite Crystal but the red didn't do the Trailhawk justice.
