The New 2018 Jeep Cherokee | Mississauga, Brampton
They say everything must change eventually, and the 2018 Jeep Cherokee is no different. Industry watchers say the beloved competitor of the Audi Q5 and BMW X3 will soon reveal a brand-new look. But don’t panic: she’ll retain that rough and tumble attitude that Jeep fans from a way back have come to count on.
The upcoming tweaks will include a redesigned front end, but the legendary Cherokee seven-slat grille will definitely remain. Don’t mess with an icon, right? Sharing some distinct design notes with the new Jeep Compass, we’ll likely see rounder, less angular headlights, new bumpers front and back, and an upturned lower portion on the front end. That notorious off-road vibe will be reflected in the exterior look; word on the street is that the vehicle’s rear end will also undergo a bit of a redesign, too.
Worried about too many changes to that classic Jeep interior, Mississauga and Brampton drivers? Rest easy. The new 2018 Jeep Cherokee interior remains pretty much unchanged from the outgoing model. Instead, enjoy some updates in the tech and connectivity options. The Uconnect infotainment system will feature the very popular Apple CarPlay and Android Auto options. We've come to see those tech tools as essential features for those of us navigating the busy streets in Brampton and Mississauga, or taking the family away for an adventure.
Power-wise, it looks as though the 140 hp 2.0-litre and 185 hp 2.2-litre diesels will continue to be very popular. And the ample 3.2-litre gas engine will stick around for the Trailhawk model, everyone’s off-road sweetheart. The Cherokee has always been known as a bit of a tough guy, and we’ll see it hanging onto that four-wheel drive and Jeep’s Selec-Terrain off-road system. The brand’s future includes some developments in the gas-electric hybrid market, probably with the next generation of Jeep Wranglers and the plug-in Jeep Yuntu. If there’s one thing Jeep knows, it’s how to stay old-school while also embracing change.
