Since there are only 3 or 4 of us that haven't written this vehicle off, why not just pm the pictures to us and call it a night.


Or do you think it might grow on a few others?

I know that some of you hate it. But from what see so far there will only be 249,999 for the rest of you.

Re: Jeep to build 250k new 14' Cherokees (liberty replacement

There is no way they are going to sell that many. The interior looks great drivetrain sounds good. The exterior is horrible from any angle . They should have built a metal top wrangler and call that Cherokee. The name doesn't belong on this thing. Better to call it liberty or something else.

Re: Jeep to build 250k new 14' Cherokees (liberty replacement

That thing is an insult to the Liberty name. Better to call it Cherokee. At least it has been forgotten about by the GENERAL PUBLIC (not Jeep enthusiasts).

When people think of "Cherokee", personally they think you are too lazy to say Grand Cherokee...

Re: Jeep to build 250k new 14' Cherokees (liberty replacement

Given the price escalation of the WK2, the lighter Cherokee with 4,500 lb towing and a 3.2 liter Pentastar might be viable as a replacement. Just need to see what the price points are (is on Jeep.com now but no prices or build).

Interesting that they kept the same stroke of the 3.6 and reduced the bore (still oversquare) which allowed a boost in c.r. to 10.7. Does seem to be 87 PON only - no flex-fuel. Did raise the hp peak to 6500 rpm.

Lattitude with 3.2 and trailer tow would be my choice just need to see what the ride is like, chose my '12 WK2 partly because the ride was so much better than other models.

Looks like about 600 lbs lighter than WK2. Ratio in 9th seems almost silly - .48:1 which would make the final drive with trailer tow near 1.68:1. 60 mph at 1100 rpm ? 7th sounds more like a usable overdrive. Is the nine-speed more of a gimmick ?

Are you saying a replacement for a GC?
I hope that's not the market they are going for.

^ same here. The Trailhawk actually looks quite nice to me. Not sure how that model would be as a DD though

I like the trailhawk, but the bulk of sales will be the sport models. And if they produce that many units, just wait for the rebates... It's an American tradition.
