They're all renderings. That's what automakers do for press photos. The pictures of the '14 GCs were renderings too. They're not actual cars, we'll get the actual pictures from the auto show.

Hmm, the Trailhawk one is looks a bit better to me. I think I'm confused more than anything. I feel like the design is ALMOST there. The back seems unfinished. Any interior pics of the trailhawk?

Thanks for posting! I actually like the look. Just so different.

This catastrophe of a front end fills my heart with sadness... there is no way that ChryFi did any consulting with the general public before relasing this design. You can put lipstick on a pig but its still-

The really sad part is how much the overall design and new features had going for it only to be blind-sided by the shark front clip. Does it even have headlights? Mark my words.. this will be revamped by the end of tge 14MY.

Agreed. Bet they fix the rear end too.

I'm not going to trade my Grand to get one of these. But, the more I see, the more I think there is going to be a pretty big market for these.

Oh do tell Bill! What you really think. You're a man of good taste who has seen a decent portion of the evolution of vehicles. Would YOU buy this if it suited your wants and needs perfectly?

Re: 2014 JEEP Cherokee KL- Reveal...pics...specs etc!!!!!!

Design: "The 2014 Jeep Cherokee mid-size SUV debuts a new exterior designed for the future with a global appeal. "

Maybe that's why it looks like a BMW x3, Nissan Murano, Acura RDX, Ford Focus, Hyundai Sante Fe...I could go on.

I think that's why of all the SUVs, the Grand Cherokee appealed to me (over my default Japanese carmakers) is because it chose to maintain "most" of its heritage - both functionality and appearance over all the SUVs-turned-CUVs.

This will sell but don't know if it will live up to the Cherokee badge as it has gone the CUV route in terms of appearance.

My guess is that the people who buy it won't give a hoot about the Cherokee brand. The reason it will look like so many others is because they sell. Jeep will have a similar look with more capability. If it was aimed at Jeep enthusiasts, they wouldn't be planning to build 250,000. Another guess ... they will promote this more than they promote the other products in the Jeep stable. It's got to bring in new customers.

yeah...impossible for these to be renderings and not real vehicles. Not saying they havent been tweaked for color etc.
