I managed to get over to our local Jeep dealer to see the new Cherokee. They had a black Trailhawk that looked pretty loaded.
First off, the fit and finish is excellent. I have a BMW and it is easily on par with that. Soft touch and upgraded materials throughout. It isn't very big, but with that I also think it is larger than it appears. I am 6' tall and had no trouble in the back with the driver seat adjusted to fit me when I was up front.
Two things really stood out - one was the sky slider. This thing is way cool. It really opens the vehicle up. The other was the screen between the gauges. Pretty good resolution and tons of functionality.
There were two guys there that both worked on the line at Jeep. One worked in QC near the end of the line. He said they are really stepping up the quality control. Lots of measurements taken for door fit, component fit, etc. The other guy didn't say where he worked but it sounded like in the body shop. He said they are having some trouble with the suppliers keeping up. I couldn't figure out if it was quality control in the parts or if it related to fitment and tweaks needed to be made. Regardless, he said they are only building one car per day right now. These are going to regulations and crash testing. He said they will start building customer cars on the 17th. Not sure if this is bulk order or special order. If I do the math though and they want to sell 250,000 of these then that's, lets see, carry the one.... 250,000 days.
Unfortunately my kids were all in a rats nest and we had to cut the visit short so I didn't get to take a million pictures. Most of these you can find on the web anyway. Let me know if you want to see something specific but this is the bulk of the good ones. I can throw in a headlight, tow hook, or side mirror if you want to see it.
