Jeep Cherokee revealed ahead of Detroit motor show

Ahead of its debut at the Detroit auto show next month, Jeep gave a sneak peek of its updated, Cherokee SUV Tuesday.

And anoraks will note that the bars of the signature seven slated grille are shorter and chunkier (another nod to the Compass) and that the number plate has migrated from the rear bumper to a restyled tailgate.

Off-road-focused Trailhawk variants are expected to retain more muscular styling, with the inclusion of tow hooks, black cladding on the bumpers and wheelarches, all-terrain tyres and an increased ride height.

FCA will reveal more information during the Detroit auto show, formally known as the North American International Auto Show.

It's not a full redesign of the current Cherokee that debuted for the 2014 model year, but the changes straddle the line between subtle and distinctive.
