The Jeep Cherokee’s future never looked so uncertain. The last model of the 2023 Jeep Cherokee recently traversed across the automaker’s Belvidere plant before it shut down. So what does that mean for the 2024 Jeep Cherokee? Will the SUV face discontinuation, or will it be remodeled or replaced?
Is the Jeep Cherokee Discontinued?
The American automaker has yet to disclose whether the Cherokee is discontinued. Nonetheless, there’s no confirmation of a replacement model. With no assurance of a future model, this raises concern for a few enthusiasts since the Belvidere plane in Illinois is shut down.
Production for the Cherokee’s 2023 model year has come to completion, so any enthusiasts who fantasize about owning the SUV should turn that dream into a reality. In addition, the 2024 Jeep Cherokee may never come to fruition. However, there’s also a possibility that the SUV may reemerge as something we never anticipated.
The Jeep Cherokee KL debuted in 2013 and, by 2018, inherited a ton of modifications. The American automaker has alluded that the Cherokee needs a replacement. In other words, Jeep may be eliminating the Cherokee.
The CEO of Jeep, Christian Meunier, stated that the midsize SUV segment continues to expand. Yet, as the midsize segment grows, the Cherokee stays the same size and afloat in a wavering SUV ocean.
What about the 2024 Jeep Cherokee?
So will there be a 2024 Jeep Cherokee? The future of the subcompact SUV remains uncertain. However, if the Cherokee reveals a 2024 model, it may display a few refinements with the same engine options. The 2025 Jeep Cherokee will be redesigned as the vehicle transitions to its next generation. Regardless, the vehicle may inherit an electric powertrain.
So far, we’ve only received confirmation of two new electric SUVs from the off-road automaker. The future ruggedly capable Jeep Recon and Wagoneer S will enter assembly by 2024. In addition, the EVs will cruise on the STLA platform for its large vehicles. The Stellantis platform supports electric and hybrid powertrains. Therefore, the upcoming Jeep Cherokee may be more extensive.
The head of Jeep Brand North America, Jim Morrison, stated that the Cherokee would be bigger and better than ever. However, Morrison made no mention of anything else concerning the Cherokee. Additionally, the code name for the project may be KM, and it may offer a third row similar to the Jeep Commander and Grand Cherokee L.
