Jeep revived the “Cherokee” name with its reborn crossover years ago, but it wasn’t anything like the original. In fact, it caused quite a stir in the community, especially with the daytime running lights and actually headlights separated completely, which gave the crossover a squinty-eyed look.
Those design cues will be long gone when the 2019 Jeep Cherokee makes it debut, and new spy shots show a much more conventional design. The headlight and daytime running lights are housed in one single unit this time around, which gives the Cherokee a much cleaner face. The grille still features a raked look, however.
At the rear, the crossover gets new taillights akin to the new Jeep Compass and the rear bumper looks as if it’s undergone a slight refresh altogether as well.
We know the 2019 Jeep Cherokee will enter production early next year, but its debut is still unknown. A safe bet might be the 2018 North American International Auto Show.
