Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee?

What in the F is that thing? LOL. The front end looks like the back end of a Pontiac Aztek (which btw is one of the ugliest cars ever produced). And what's up with that hood fitment? It looks like its from a totally different car and laid ontop of that thing. Look at the gaps on the passenger side of that hood. Weird as shit.

Perfect description. Looks like something a 10-year old would scribble in a notebook during history class in between bong rips.

The Aztek was never criticized for not having a squinty-enough front end.

I think the white one may be a Trailhawk version. The tires are more aggressive than those on the black one behind it, it's got the red tow hooks, and you can see the selector in the center console has settings for Auto, Snow, Sport, Sand/Mud, and Rock. I may just be reading too much into it, but Jeep did say there are going to be more Trailhawks in the future.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee?

Prepare youself...this WILL be the front end of the '16 Grand Cherokee*



* actual claim based on nothing, just a WAG.

It just looks like the designers are using way too much cut-and-paste these days, besides the "I dreamed it up" front end.

Hideous front end. Looks like they tried to give it a stadium truck look. The rest doesn't look that bad imho but very "nissan-ish"

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee?

Interesting, Chrysler tweeted four hours ago: @Jalopnik scoop re @Jeep. Photos not the vehicle to be revealed in NY. See you at #2013NYAS

Does that mean this is not the Cherokee / Liberty? Or perhaps earlier design studies?

Or perhaps they saw the backlash and decided, lets go with plan B?

Or maybe they just mean that the white vehicle is not the one going to NYAS, and they will be bringing an orange one?

PILOT BUILD!!!!

These are not final production vehicles. You should have seen how awful the first WK2s looked. Nothing fit anywhere inside and out and don't get me started with the early production plastics. That's what happens when you put a new vehicle down a new assembly line. It happens to all automakers. None of the first batch are perfect. That takes time.

Regarding Chrysler denying the pics, it sounds like damage control to me.

I'm hoping those vehicles are just prototypes.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee?

They are S1 pilot builds.

So, almost production, but not quite.
