Look out for fresh versions of the Wrangler, Renegade, Compass, Cherokee, and Grand Cherokee.
Jeep may be a quintessentially American marque, but Fiat Chrysler has turned it into a global powerhouse. In fact it's sales rose by a massive 56 percent in Europe just last year, making it the region's fastest-growing automotive brand. So we're not surprised to see that it will be well-represented at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show next week. We just weren't expecting it to showcase so many new trim levels and special editions.
Not the least of them, to hear FCA tell it, will be the Trailhawk version of freshly updated Cherokee (pictured in red).
Though we saw that version (alongside the others) at the Detroit show in January, Jeep says it'll mark the model's debut at the Geneva show. Worldwide or otherwise, the new Cherokee is the latest to get the Trailhawk treatment that has turned each vehicle in the company's lineup into a proper off-roader.
Alongside it, Jeep will also showcase the new S versions of the Renegade, Compass, Cherokee, and Grand Cherokee, adopting a decidedly more "metropolitan” approach than the rugged Trailhawk. Each is done up in white with black trim for an almost stormtrooper-like look, and comes bundled with a long list of optional extras.
Joining them will be the Night Eagle edition of the Compass, done up in Laser Blue with blacked-out roof, wheels, and other trim. Jeep and Mopar will also show off two specially equipped examples of the new Wrangler (yet to be revealed). One is based on the Rubicon in Hella Yella with black trim, upfitted with such off-road goodies as a 2-inch lift kit, snorkel air intake, rock rails, and more. The second is a Wrangler Sahara in Ocean Blue with chrome trim for a more "urban” vibe. Rounding out the lineup is a Renegade Limited (pictured) in teal and matte grey trim.
