You are probably aware that Jeep currently works on the refreshed Cherokee. The new spy shots, however, are pointing out something hotter. Yes, it’s the vanilla flavor, so-called 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. The off-road trim is featuring some unique details, which will definitely make it better and perhaps more handsome from its predecessor.
The rugged vehicle sports updated front and rear ends, as well as new wheels. More precisely, the crossover is hosting a pair of completely new headlights, which are positioned a little bit lower and totally redesigned. The prototype is showing a slightly restyled front bumper, too, but the changes are fairly modest. Moreover, the most important difference is new fog lamps, which sit a bit higher than earlier. Of course, the variant has two red hooks on the front. But that’s pretty expected because we are talking about the off-road SUV. The rear hatch gets new, larger taillights and updated bumper, which has a red hook. The off-roader rides on new Y-shaped alloy wheels and that’s everything the Trailhawk gets new from the outside.
We haven’t seen the cabin of the 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk so far. However, it will likely host the same changes as the rest of the Cherokee family. More precisely, the crossover will get a new larger infotainment system and HVAC vent on each side. Jeep will likely add some better quality materials, as well as new upholstery.
Under The Hood
The carmaker will reportedly improve SUV’s performance. As far as we’ve heard, the 2018 Cherokee Trailhawk is going to get an updated all-wheel-drive system and new nine-speed transmission. Plus, Jeep will likely add a new mild-hybrid system which relies on a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The powertrain should be able to pump out 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. The vehicle will keep its V6 engine for now. Though, the option will get a start-stop system to improve fuel economy.
The crossover will make the official debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, so we should have everything about it very soon.
