I'm not here to debate platform size.... I drove one and walked away.

Jeep failed at replacing the XJ and satisfying its loyal customer base, plain and simple.

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Lucas,

I don't need a history lesson. I'm a XJ original owner... been following the platform since 1987 when the 4.0L was available. I bought one in 1991 when the 4.0L HO was released and still have it.

My first mistake was not buying its replacement, a 2001 XJ 60th Anniversary Model, the last year.

My second mistake was not buying a ZJ or WJ Grand Cherokee, the last years before Jeep decided to install IFS.

I deviated from the brand and bought a 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser. An experience in its own realm.

None of the aforementioned are considered FULL-SIZE SUV's.

I am not giving you a history lesson. Just simply stating that you are wrong that the commander was the Cherokees replacement.
The XK might not be called a full size SUV but it was jeeps largest vehicle which they wanted to compete with Expeditions and Tahoe's of the world.

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

One word says it all... "Polarizing"

Jeep Revives Cherokee For 2014 With Polarizing New Design - Forbes

The fact, the Jeep Cherokee XJ, was never, or will never be replaced.

Too much water under the bridge to revive...

Quote.. "It is exalted among off-road enthusiasts for its rugged capabilities and simple, handsome design."

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Interesting take from Jalopnik that shows Chrysler tweets/facebook message as well as a rear shot.
Was Chrysler Expecting A Negative Reaction To The New Jeep Cherokee?

That's awesome... I find it amusing Jeep's defensive stance on the definition of failure.

It's not like they haven't experienced this before with the rollout of the Liberty and Commander.. maybe that's what they meant by saying "Don't judge a book by its cover."

This is comical.

There's no way I'd park one of these in my driveway... much less drive one.
