The designers made a key mistake when they targeted the demographics for this vehicle.

They forgot blind people don't drive.

Jokes aside, the poll results aren't far off from the poll results you see from other polls of non-Jeep fans, namely overwhelming hate for it.

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

"My Buddy" ... 2014 Jeep Cherokee.



Pontiac Aztek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
The Pontiac Aztek was a mid-size crossover, the first offered by General Motors, that was produced by Pontiac from the 2001 model year to the 2005 model year. The Aztek was heavily criticized on its exterior styling, with Time magazine in 2007 calling the Aztek one of the worst cars of all time, and again in 2010 as one of the 50 worst inventions of all time. A poll in The Daily Telegraph in August 2008 placed the Aztek at number one of the "100 ugliest cars" of all time. An article by Edmunds.com, an online automotive resource, placed the car at the top of the list of the "100 Worst Cars of All Time" not only because of its perceived ugly appearance, but also because it had "a singular distinction: it destroyed an 84-year-old automaker."

Given that many sport utility vehicles (SUVs) were rarely driven off-pavement, a new car-based "crossover" was marketed with hopes of providing an appealing subset of SUV-like elements that most SUV owners actually used. These features included large cargo capacities and elevated seating. The vehicle was marketed to younger drivers who could picture the Aztek as complementary to an active outdoor lifestyle with fewer of the drawbacks perceived with traditional SUVs such as poor gas mileage, uncomfortable ride, high step-in height and vulnerability to roll-over. Television commercials portrayed the Aztek as an adult "My Buddy", able to go along for all sorts of adventures such as getting lost in remote southwest locations or as a sleep-in vehicle before an open fire in a municipal park.

What does Ralph have to do with Jeep? Isn't he in charge of the SRT brand?

Is he the head now? I thought he was the senior VP of design or something but not the head.

Bob, the term "tripping balls" simply means he was on a trip (like a hallucigen trip) when he green lighted the design. hahah

Re: Heres the 2014 Jeep Cherokee

I agree ... this thing is ugly. They looked at the Nissan Juke's split headlights and said, "GREAT IDEA! COPY!" .... Different strokes for different folks I suppose, but I dont think I've read a positive comment about this mystery model. Jeep has put out some AMAZING concepts in the past, but they never come to fruition for whatever reason. Then something like this slit eye sore makes it to a production line?! ppl in the auto industry play with themselves too much. The current liberty is more in line with the JK. They should beef up the current liberty and rebrand it.

OR bring this:
The 2007 concept of the Trailhawk
