This was announced the other day. What, according to Jeep, was delayed was the media event. Jeep said when they made the announcement, that the Cherokees are still expected in the showrooms in September.

This is, as stated in the article, a software problem.

For some reason, that jeep reminds me of the old Pontiac Aztec. Of course, not reminded of this in a good way.

This needs to be moved to the Cherokee section, not the WK2 area.

Re: Jeep Delays 2014 Cherokee Because Of 9-Speed Tranny Issues

I agree, that is one ugly jeep. A while back before they fully disclosed the new look of WK2 I saw a picture of the 2014 Cherokee and thought it was the new line of Grand Cherokees. I thought Jeep went off the deep end. Then the 2014 Grand Cherokees were announced and all hope was restored.

Re: Jeep Delays 2014 Cherokee Because Of 9-Speed Tranny Issues

I still can't believe they went forward with this design after all the feedback from the leaked pictures. I admit it does stand out and looks different, but not in a good way. You would think they would want people pausing to look at this as it passes by due to how good it looks, not the other way around.

Re: Jeep Delays 2014 Cherokee Because Of 9-Speed Tranny Issues

9 Speeds? Why not use a CVT instead?
