I quite like it. I reckon it will warm to its detractors over time

Cheers,

re: Chrysler Suspending Cherokee KL Production

I posted that I liked the look when the first pictures were shown. I still like it. Even though I own a JGC, I am not a Jeep die hard fan. Maybe that's why I can like something that doesn't totally follow the Jeep formula.

re: Chrysler Suspending Cherokee KL Production

When Jeep first came out with the Compass many people said the front end didn't look good. We liked it, and still do. Funky little vehicle, but that was the appeal for us.

Sure beats the old "looks-like-the-box-it-came-in" look.

My wife had considered a Cherokee until she saw the front and she was like "UGH! WTF?!?!" She hated it and refuses to look at it.

re: Chrysler Suspending Cherokee KL Production

Saw one on the road this last week......looks better in person as the photo angles seem to over emphasize the front end design.

re: Chrysler Suspending Cherokee KL Production

it seems there is a delay to get the tranny programming right. I heard they will be released in 7 days

I think they were thinking MPGs and how to compete with Rav4, CRV, Forester and Escape. Dont't really understand why do they have similar sized Compass which was redesigned recently anyway.

re: Chrysler Suspending Cherokee KL Production

I don't mind the looks of the new Cherokee at all, especially when you compare it to other vehicles in that class (Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape, etc.).

Recently drove ford escape with ecoboost engine. Damn. That car is a lot fun to drive. MPG numbers weren't that impressive.

re: Chrysler Suspending Cherokee KL Production

I like the new Cherokee.

I might have gotten a Cherokee instead of the Grand Cherokee if I hadn't had a time crunch to buy a new SUV in July. There aren't many compact SUVs with a V6 engine and 4500lbs towing.

My parents recently bought a top of the line 2013 Ford Escape Titanium with the 19" wheels and EcoBoost engine.

After driving it...I'm not impressed. The turbocharged 4 banger felt like a slug compared to my 2014 V6, and the handling was so-so.

I like my GC MUCH better.
