Envisioning the 2018 Jeep Cherokee

by David Zatz on

For the next Jeep Cherokee, Susan Rand and “DarkSky” considered what the phrase “a more traditional front that is still unique” might mean. Sources claimed that the body would remain essentially unchanged.

Since the “headlights below the DRLs” aspect of the current Cherokee is the most radical change from the norm, both renderings swap the two positions, putting the headlights up high, with integral DRLs, parking lights in a separate area, and then fog lights at the bottom, where the current headlights are.

The oddly unfinished look of the current model would, in DarkSky’s renderings, be resolved by moving the license plate up from the bumper. This transforms the tailgate, whether it’s the more sculpted version below or the simpler version in the second image.
