Redesign in 2018 or 2019?

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

Driving the Jeep Cherokee from All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant is a great pleasure, however, fans of the Cherokee have been wondering when the next full redesign will be done. Initial reports suggested that 2018 will be the year that we see a new Jeep Cherokee, but we are not entirely sure. We want to share the latest gossip on what we can expect to see and when we can expect to see a redesign.

According to reliable Allpar source oh2o, buyers waiting for a fully refreshed Jeep Cherokee may need to hold off until the 2019 model year. The 2018s are starting production a little early, and ordering for the 2019s is expected to start in January 2018.

oh2o reported that the 2019 Cherokee will have the fourth-generation UConnect system and the Hurricane four-cylinder engine. The current 2.4 and 3.2 liter engines will still be sold, as well.

“DarkSky’s rendering shows how the company might make the Cherokee look a little less unusual, while still keeping it different from other Jeeps. The grille is based on that of the Renegade; the main difference, though, is the less unique forward lighting. In back, we expect the large expanse of curved steel to be changed, as well.”-allpar.com

Not making the new Cherokee right off the bag makes sense, in terms of reducing risk. Instead of dealing with a new car and new plant, the company can just change the plant, making the existing car; that would also reduce the demand for new Cherokees until the plant is moving at full speed.

Personal Thoughts on the Jeep Cherokee

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant

The 2017 Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Florissant is a really powerful and impressive SUV. We don’t know if you have had an opportunity to drive one or own one, but you will really want to drive a Cherokee after you read the person thoughts that we got from Edgar, a new Cherokee owner that we had the opportunity to talk to!

What did you buy?: I just purchased a 2017 Cherokee Latitude a few weeks ago, and continue to be impressed. To put it in perspective, I also have a 2016 Honda CRV and can make a good comparison now.

What kind of pricing did you get and do you think you got more value with the Jeep Cherokee?: I had shopped both cars and negotiated rock bottom deals on both. Both cars ended up within $100 of each other, Latitude for the Jeep and EX for the CRV. But compare what I got in terms of value: Power: the 6 cylinder engine of the Jeep is is much more powerful and smooth than the 4 cylinder in the Honda..a 90 hp difference..advantage Jeep. Convenience: The Jeep has Power tailgate, Much better/larger LCD Infotainment System, Remote Start, More Adjustable and comfortable power front seats Auto Mirror, integrated 911 system etc not on the CRV. The CRV came with heated seats and the blind spot camera, both nice things but not of the value of the Jeep. Utility: The Jeep came with Roof Rails, Tow package (can tow 4500 lbs!), and full size spare. Honda did not include roof rails at that price point or tow hitch, and can tow only 1500 lbs if so configured. Advantage Jeep. Design: The Jeep has a unique outdoorsey presence about it, with off color stitching. The CRV is just kind of ‘blah’.

It is nice to see someone really take the time to compare their vehicles, and we are always happy to see more people fall in love with the Jeep Cherokee!

Jeep Cherokee: A Wonderful SUV

Jeep Cherokee at All Star Jeep Dealer near Illinois

Spring is officially here in St. Louis, as the ridiculous amount of rain we have gotten over the last few days can attest to. (We hope that all of our readers are safe and sound, we know that the flooding has been incredibly dangerous. Please do not drive on flooded roads, the signs are posted for your safety.) Springtime makes us think of rebirth and of the history of our favorite automobiles. Today we want to take a look at the start of the Jeep Cherokee that is always available at All Star Jeep Dealer near Illinois.

The first Jeep Cherokee, launched in 1974, was simply a two-door version of the Jeep Wagoneer. In 1977, the Jeep Cherokee, still a low-end version of the Wagoneer, was available with both two and four doors.

After ten years, a new and completely different Cherokee was brought out, which would revolutionize American SUVs. This new Jeep Cherokee had a shorter wheelbase than the original, and a shorter length – seven and 21 inches respectively – helping it to check in at a svelte 3,100 pounds, a thousand pounds less than the Wagoneer-based model, around the same weight as a Plymouth Valiant. “The new Cherokee was more economical, and easier to drive both on and off road. Again, both two and four door models were available; a pickup version called the Comanche was built on the same assembly line. In front, a multi-link front suspension with a track bar and coil springs was used, with recirculating ball steering; traditional leaf springs held up the rear.”-allpar.com

The first two generations of the Jeep Cherokee were the beginnings of the wonderful Jeep Cherokee we know and love today. Learn more about the Cherokee at All Star today!
