Meet the 2019 Cherokee

by David Zatz on

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.

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

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).

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?
