You're completely right and that's why many real Jeepers are upset. The new cherokee is a cute-ute, nothing more, nothing less. It's going after the small cross-over crowed, ie RAV-4, CR-V, etc. The Jeep it replaced was rugged and off road worthy. I think if they kept the Cherokee name for something that deserves it and put a compass name on this thing, purists would be happier. Then again, the whole "trail rated" marketing ploy is just that, stick it on something with all season tires and apparently it will go anywhere lol.
