2014 Jeep Cherokee?

Just came across this news. Is that the new Jeep Cherokee??? According to the below link, it is!


2014 Jeep Cherokee: This Is It









Now, who is canceling their 2014 Grand Cherokee orders and getting the Cherokee???

Thoughts?

Cheers,

There is a Cherokee forum that is talking about this.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee?

I wouldn't mind it if it was the price of a compass only a little bigger with some sort of power, but odds are it is going to get a couple mpg's above the grand Cherokee and cost about 2-3k less by the time you add the off road packages.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee?

Someone had mentioned that the Jeep designers tend to check out the forums from time to time. My message to them is... AESTHETIC DESIGN FAILURE.

The front end is a jumbled mess of shapes that do not flow together. The three sets of seperate light housings don't work. The agressive headlights go back too far on the fender and don't mesh with the grill design.

I can't believe any designer can stand back and feel proud of that design and feel that it is complete.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee?

Remember, the WK2 was designed before Fiat. Don't know if that's the reason this new Cherokee is so ugly or not, but might want to stock up on 2016 and earlier WK2s, as the 2017 Grand Cherokee may not end up looking like what people on here would want to buy.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee?

Im a traditionalist and past owner of quite a few XJs. I kind of like it! Bold, different...could have some off road packages. Looks kind of cool.
