Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

ALL of this happened when all the spy pics and official pics of the 2014 were revealed earlier this year....same outrage...same hate. It also happened in 2010 and 2004. I was on forums in 04 and was here to witness it for the 2011 and 2014 GC.

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

It's bad enough, it's going to have the JEEP brand. Please don't call it Cherokee, please don't insult all previous, current and future owners of Cherokees and Grand Cherokees.

This is much worse than any of those times.

The '14 GC isn't exactly pretty, but nobody put it in the same league as the Aztek or Juke. It just didn't look as good as the pre-facelifts.

This is a whole other beast here. This is a vehicle that flat out need a front redesign immediately.

When the WK came out, it wasn't overwhelmingly seen as a mistake. When the WK2 came out, it wasn't overwhelmingly met with disgust.

There's "getting used to" and then there's "this shouldn't have gotten this far". This is the latter.

We will see what happens. Worst case scenario, Chrysler has to pull a Honda, like they had to on the 2012 Civic. Emergency refresh.

FAUEE, I agree. This is exponentially worse.

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Wow...the Cherokee is fugly at best and at worst the ugliest and most bastardized interpretation of an iconic brand I've ever seen. I am ordering a 2014 JGC in the next allotment and my wife was waiting to replace her '08 Liberty with the new Cherokee. Not anymore. I wouldn't plunk down my hard earned $$ for that POS. So disapointing. Jeep just lost a sure thing sale.

I'm sure you'll be seeing these new "cherokees" rolling up HWY 321 this fall and you'll be saying," wow, I could drive one of those with the roof rolled back on the BRP...that'd be swell"

p.s. send pictures when that happens

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Unlike the -real- Cherokee, and this thing is a poser. The Cherokee earned it's off road credentials and was very capable. It also had a very utilitarian personality that people valued. I never had to thing twice about taking the Cherokee off road or on unplowed roads. This thing however shouldn't be allowed off of the asphalt.

Jeep... it's a bold styling experiment. Call it anything you want just don't call it a Cherokee.

Is that because you don't like the looks or have there been some specs released?

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

front-end appearance aside, we don't know anything about this Cherokee's offroad abilities. Aside from the Wranglers, we will never see the new vehicles with the simplistic automotive engineering that the XJ had. That simplicity enabled so much of the cool 4x4 aftermarket tweaking. Compared to the XJ and even the WK1, the WK2 doesn't have that many mods and probably never will with all the electonic doodads and such.

The new Cherokee , while it is in desperate need of a front end collision, could certainly be up to the task of tackling rugged fire roads, beach driving, moderately deep snow, and the occasional river ford. It won't, probably ever be a great rock crawler or mud bogger, and that isn't really what most people want. If you want those things, get a wrangler or a 1995 Cherokee.

Can you imagine people who end up with this intentionally crashing the front end into a wall or something to improve the look.
