The Cherokee is refined for 1997. Minor exterior changes update the styling. The front end receives a new grille that is more rounded than the previous model. On the sides there are new integrated wheel flares. In the rear there is a new hidden-hinged liftgate. The interior styling has been updated and is now modular in construction to facilitate RHD versions of the Cherokee. Interior changes also include updated door panels and an improved HVAC system.
