Yeah, I don't think it is that bad either? I don't get the people bashing the looks?
There are so many other vehicles on the road that are truly hideous it isn't funny. The new Cherokee is not even close to being as bad as a lot of what I see.
If it turns out to be a decent reliable vehicle you will hear less and less about the looks. If it turns out to be a disaster the looks comments will get even more common.
I remember when Dodge came out with the 3rd gen Ram in 2002 and how loyal Dodge truck guys were all having fits over how ugly they were. After a couple year people realized it was a great truck and suddenly the ugly comments went away.
