Grand Cherokee copy VW Cross-Blue

That could be considered a Grand Cherokee copy...

Re: Grand Cherokee copy VW Cross-Blue

Definitely not ugly. In fact, it looks great. But...it is very similar and appears to have "borrowed" quite a few design elements from the WK2.

Re: Grand Cherokee copy VW Cross-Blue

Wasn't there something in the media the other day VW being interested in Fiat/Chrysler?
Remember when Daimler bought Chrysler "marriage in heaven", let's see if/what happens this time...
I for sure like the interior.
The diesel should be better than the current VM Motori. I like all current VW TDI engines.
Curious about the transmission, hopefully not a direct copy?!
Don't get me wrong, I like my 2014 Limited, sure all that chrome is unpleasant (to me), up here in Canada you can't get the Limited with Diesel option what is annoying, Chrysler should offer the diesel in the Laredo configuration. My main complaint is the 8 speed transmission, better than my 2012 5 speed but not by much...

Re: Grand Cherokee copy VW Cross-Blue

http://www.caranddriver.com/news/vol...-and-info-news

"In that spirit, exterior designer Marc Lichte—who designed the MkV Golf—styled the CrossBlue to incorporate key characteristics of American SUVs: giant wheel arches, a wide stance, and a generally masculine look. They succeeded—if only because the thing is practically a dead ringer for one of the leading American 4x4s, Jeep’s Grand Cherokee. Don’t expect much of the styling to change on the production model"

I guess it's not a coincidence, it's simply an "incorporation of key characteristics of American SUVs" haha

I like how they are doing the 3 rows of seats like the 2015 Grand Waggy

Re: Grand Cherokee copy VW Cross-Blue

It's nice looking all the way around. I see they plan on building it in Chattanooga.
