2018 Jeep Cherokee facelift unveiled

The Jeep Cherokee facelift has been revealed ahead of the car's full debut at the 2018 Detroit motor show.

The company has retained the semi-slanted grille design from the current car, but, from what we can see, the latest version is shorter, has a smaller spacing between the slats, and a less aggressive rake angle.
