Any details about the 4wd system? If it drove all four wheels like WK QD minus the low range, would be interesting.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features & Changes

Gotta keep my eye on this one too. I'm getting a new GC, and looking at this for the girlfriend. Always loved the old Cherokees, and this sounds like it might be a better replacement than the outgoing Liberty. If the new GC is any indication, this should be pretty exciting. Looking forward to more info!

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features & Changes

I'm sure the camo isn't helping, but is it just me or do the proportions of the Cherokee in that video appear really awkward. It looks tall and skinny and awkwardly perched on those wheels.

So it looks like it can send power between front two wheels and to the rear. Be interesting to know if they add a rear diff (although I suspect not).

Tidbit #1: The grille is part of the aluminum hood.
Tidbit #2: As can be seen in the spy photos, V6 models will be higher than the 4 cylinders. They also come with larger, very beefy tires. I'm assuming the "lifted" models are Trail Rated.

Sounds pretty slick! Aluminum, huh? Is that different from what other Jeeps have? Lightweight for gas mileage, but will it hold up as well steel to minor dents and all that?

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features & Changes

I have seen the spyshots and just watched the video.. why does the rear end look so high off the ground? Looks pretty silly and disproportionate. Watch the video and you'll see what I mean when the cameraman is following him on the highway.
