If you’re a lover of driving dynamics of the last Jeep Cherokee but you’re not a huge fan of its exterior design, just wait a few months: The Cherokee is bringing a lot different styling to the front and rear fascias. Prototypes of the remade SUV have already been saw testing.
We’re expecting to see bigger, chiseled headlights placed on the front, more than the top of the front fenders in addition to a remade grille and bumper
When it comes to engines, the 2018 model could debut a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine good for around 300 hp that will also power the all-new 2018 Wrangler, in place of or in addition to the 2.4-liter four-cylinder currently found underhood. This engine, dubbed “Hurricane,” is believed to be receiving final calibration in 2018 Wrangler mules and is expected to be paired with a new eight-speed transmission, as well as a six-speed manual.
As for the updated Cherokee, we expect to see it in the metal late this year or early next year as a 2018 model.
