2019 Jeep Cherokee SUV has been unveiled in official images before its public debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on 16 January 2018. The new generation Cherokee has received a lot of visible changes to the exterior and Jeep says that the new SUV will boast a new, authentic and premium design, along with fuel-efficient powertrain options. Jeep Cherokee had been due to receive an upgrade and now the mid-cycle refurbishing given it rather a sophisticated appeal, on contrary to its previous 'wild' looks. The biggest change is at the front, which now no longer has the two-tier lighting system from the old Cherokee. It now has a single-light setup that's much closer to the new Compass. The images suggest the tail lamps are new as well, although it is pretty much the same on the inside with a large central infotainment screen and a number of buttons below it.

There is only so many details available about the next generation Jeep Cherokee, the rest has all been saved for the big unveil in Detroit. When Jeep says that the new Cherokee packs "even more fuel-efficient powertrain options", it could point to a plug-in hybrid system similar to that in the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid, or like the turbo I4 in the new Wrangler.

Engine details have been revealed yet, but the new Jeep Cherokee may be powered by Jeep's new 2-litre turbocharged diesel engine, along with the options of a V6 and the new 2.4-litre petrol unit. The mid-size SUV is to go on sale in international markets towards the end of 2018, after its debut at Detroit. So far, there is no official confirmation, the new generation Jeep Cherokee will likely make its way towards India.
