But just like the misfit headlights on the '14 GC that need a filler piece of plastic, you don't see them while you're driving.

In the second picture the black "cherokee" has molding that runs near the top of the front fender. In the released JEEP picture, there is no such thing.

Maybe the middle headlight was a joke, and was supposed to simulate the XJ square headlight being brought back from the "real cherokee" days...maybe it'll say "since 1984" on it

I only dream that this is a joke/ hoax and the black "cherokee" doesn't just have a different trim level on it that brings the molding up a bit

p.s the back end is hideous too.


...And the black cherokee has flush mounted top light, the JEEP official picture looks like it's sunk in a bit. Black cherokee top light doesn't have any orange part to it, JEEP pic does. But we've seen JEEP use black tape before (my WK2 peeps). I'm just trying to come up with more hopes that they didn't $%#@ the Cherokee.

This might also stir up real JEEP fans , just like adding square headlights to a Wrangler
The white and black Cherokees taken at the plant are Trailhawks, the blue on in the Jeep shots is a higher trim level.

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

I really was hoping for something retro here. Blocky like the old Cherokee with some 2014 GC thrown in. Will it have any off road manners, how about a manual transmission? Is the only Jeep, a wrangler anymore? Am I destined for a Subaru, due to price point Jeep models? Compass, Patriot, and now this. Due I have to get the monkey loaded Summit version, just to have the option to get Quadra trac 2?

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Grand Cherokee Laredo E with either Off Road group or All Weather group gets you QTII. They're discounting 2013s $6k or more off of MSRP, and same with 2014s if you do one of the group buys that forum members are doing. Could be had for $28,000.

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

So apparently Gilles went out and called the design "very contemporary" to try to do damage control.

Sounds like a guy begging to keep his job after screwing the pooch so bad allowing this out the door.

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

If he wants to see "very contemporary" SUV design, he needs to look at Land Rovers. Every model has been a nice evolution from past to present. Yes, a lot more money, but money I'm willing to spend for status, style and utility.

I'm probably jumping ship for a new vehicle purchase. I'm not sure where Jeep's designers are looking for inspiration - mass market to kids in high school are my first thoughts.

I guess when your sales revenues spike, R&D has the luxury of taking risks to see if a new design will stick or not. Maybe this new generation of kids will take to something like the Pontiac Aztec. Who knows, I wish them the best of luck.

Personally, I'm done with the brand... like I said, too much water under the bridge.

Yeah... well ... its a Jeep Thing alright. But its a Jeep Thing with my '91.

So far, the stranglehold hasen't persisted beyond my XJ.

However I wouldn't bet on anything at this point....

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

Somewhere over the pond someone just cried, "What did they do to that Alfa Romeo?!"

I think the only mistake they made was naming it a Cherokee. Much like the compass and patriot, it will sell and Jeep as a brand will benefit. Niche brands tend to struggle when the market changes, but if they have a wide variety of models their future will more stable... in theory.

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

I'm not surprised to see those results from a Jeep club. I think this vehicle is designed to bring people into the fold who never owned a Jeep before. There are, after all, more folks who don't own Jeeps than those who do.
