The photos of the Cherokee vehicle were taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark III in mid-February. A couple weeks ago Jeep did a little touch-up in Photoshop on some of them.

Too bad they didn't touch up the exterior. I admit the interior looks nice, but damn did they mess up the exterior. It has potential but fails with the front grill and split lights.

Which I think will be the draw as Jeep has the off-road 4x4 reputation behind the name. I just think there is too much black molding in the rear - taking up nearly a quarter of it - and still not digging the split headlamps - again adding too much bumper/molding which ruins the look for me. I don't remember seeing any split headlamps on the FIATs I saw in Italy a couple of years ago so I don't know who came up with that idea.

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

The interior looks rather nice, however the exterior doesn't do anything for me. Why put all that black plastic in the back...makes it look cheap to me. Hopefully it will look a lot better in pictures taken at the auto show/ in person. I hope for Jeeps sake it does. Thanks for posting those pictures Scott, another reason to keep coming back to JG.

- Just noticed that none of the vehicles in the press photos, the Limited nor Trailhawk have a sunroof. I know manufacturers don't always include every feature in press photos but I really hope they offer a sunroof..maybe a dual pane one like in the Grand Cherokee.

I expect this to get about the same fuel economy as Patriot/Compass. Which was about 30mpg.

They're supposed to offer a dual pane and their weirdo sky slider cloth thing in it according to the wall-o-text.

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

It's too bad, I actually like the side profile. The rest of it...well, it looks like they dropped a car on top of another car. Everything above the bumper line is great (above the middle headlight), while below the bumper line, front and rear, just miss...miss big.

I'll be watching in about 12 hours to see Mike, or whomever gets suckered into the presentation in NY, to see if he's gritting his teeth while talking about this.



Owner: "Hey, I have a 2014 Cherokee that I need to replace a front light"

Auto Zone clerk, " Which one? Top, middle, or bottom?"

That just sounds wrong

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

I am trying so hard to accept this, really I am. The Trailhawk doesn't look bad. But then I see the overhead view showing off how much front overhang there really is. Then I see the rear views, showing off multiple creases and lines that look like a cross between a Korean design and an afterthought.

The Jeep guys that still exist in the company know how bad this thing is; why else would a Trailhawk edition be available at release? They hope it will pacify the die hard Jeep crowd, it won't. I remember when the KJ was released. I remember pouring over the patent drawings on the IFS. Some said that it was the beginning of the end. I wonder what this turd would make them think...

The exterior design is a disaster. Ugly. Just awful. And someone tell Chrysler it'll still be repulsive five years from now.

Looks like this is the Trailhawk without the black hood and badging.
