Monday’s Cherokee rendering

by David Zatz on

What would the week be without a rendering of the next-generation Jeep Cherokee? With a “more conventional” face and more finished rear, the midsize Jeep is reportedly to keep its basics intact, and to still look fairly unusual on the street.

As for functional differences, since the current model is electronically current, we’d wonder if it will be the first target for the Hurricane turbocharged four-cylinder engine, perhaps in its lower output form, likely around 240-280 hp. This would provide V6-like power with better gas mileage.

We also wonder if Jeep has invested in replacing the current AWD system, with its efficient but perhaps unwise dog clutches, with a more conventional setup. The Cherokee’s system has not been used on the Renegade or Compass.
