Like all significant manufacturers, Jeep is also taking care of its SUV array and we currently found the all-new Compass which comes as the replacement for the current Patriot and Compass models. For the 2018 model year, we must also see the redesigned Wrangler as well as this model based pickup truck. But probably, Truck would not stop there as heavily refreshed or even all-new Jeep Fantastic Cherokee must arrive for the 2018 model year. Nevertheless, Fantastic Cherokee’s smaller companion, 2018 Jeep Cherokee should also be under revision and evolve in many aspects.
NEW FOR 2018:
Truck reintroduced the Cherokee nameplate for the 2014 model year and this compact crossover SUV must enter to the 2018 model year with the upgrades on almost all fronts. Truck hasn’t hinted what it has in cards for this model but it is expected that Cherokee might receive the mid-cycle update. The changes should be visible inside and out plus a new engine option could possibly be available.
2018 JEEP CHEROKEE: DESIGN CHANGES
When Truck returned the Cherokee model on the road, it made a departure from the Jeep’s unique front conclusion design with the specific snout form that changed Jeep’s normal upright design. This shift undoubtedly created this model unique among different Jeeps and now we expect that 2018 Jeep Cherokee will again make some changes on mode’s front fascia. Actually, the most of the changes for the new model year should be on model’s front end. Some new sort of the seven-slot grille and headlights will refresh Cherokee’s experience plus the reshaped front bumper.
The new version of this model should also provide freshened taillights and new rear bumper. Nevertheless, the model will likely keep on in same proportions and overall shape.
INTERIOR CHANGES AND FEATURES:
Interior of the next Cherokee is expected to evolve with the fresh products and updated features. It is also probable that Truck would provide an additional trim solution with specific design touches, replaced seats and high-end features.
On the other give, all trims will soon be well-equipped and more common functions should really be available. All models will have the tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, keyless access, LED DRLs and taillights, etc. The latest Uconnect infotainment system must be the standard feature on all designs except the base Sport model. The buyers will have a way to get the leather upholstery, energy and hot front seats, intelligent climate get a handle on, unique interior and exterior decorations and more on upper trim levels. The Trailhawk can come with off-road themed exterior and upgraded off-road hardware.
The new Cherokee may also be available with the latest active security systems. The model will include the adaptive cruise get a handle on, street departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning and intervention, etc.
2018 JEEP CHEROKEE: PERFORMANCE
When it comes to running choices of the new 2018 Jeep Cherokee, we expect that Truck could make some changes. The base models is going to be powered by the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine but it might get energy and torque boost. In its recent sort, this engine provides 184 hp and torque of 171 pound-feet.
The option for this engine should remain a 3.2-liter V-6 which should also see some changes over the current 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. Nevertheless, some options also suggest that the new Cherokee may also add a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It should have the power potential which could reach 300 hp.
On the other, all 2018 Cherokee models will probably get a nine-speed intelligent transmission. The front-wheel travel will soon be common and all-wheel travel optional. The model may also be available with the more capable four-wheel travel process for significant off-roading.
2018 JEEP CHEROKEE: AVAILABILITY, PRICE
Truck must disclose the new 2018 Jeep Cherokee during the first half of this year. Then, we may have more accurate information regarding model’s features. The new Cherokee should go for sale by the end of the year. Anticipated price is from about $25, 000.
