As we head into Labor Day weekend, Jeep is rolling out a bunch of new info about its 2017 Cherokee lineup.
The big news is that while the Jeep Cherokee won’t get the new LED headlights that finally come to the Wrangler, HID (high-intensity) headlights will become standard on the entire lineup except the Sport.
Here are some of the 2017 Cherokee lineup’s other new highlights. (By the way, the 75th anniversary edition will only be built through December 2016.)

Jeep is loading up the 2017 Cherokee Trailhawk with more standard premium options this year. They include heated and ventilated front seats covered in Nappa leather. The Trailhawk will also feature an eight-way power driver seat, heated steering wheel, power liftgate, Keyless Enter ‘n Go, remote start system, and universal garage door opener.
2017 Cherokee Overland
Two new Cherokee Overland Packages will hit the lineup at some point. One is a Heavy Duty Protection Group with skid plates and a full size spare tire.
