The seats were comfy albeit a little small. All the gauges, nav screen and controls seemed logical. Any thoughts from those of you who have seen the interior of the Cherokee?? I currently own an 11 GC X pkg. 4x4 and am looking forward to seeing the new Cherokee. I like the GC on the hwy. but not in the mountains and twisties elsewhere. I hope the new Cherokee will handle better. On paper it should given it's dimensions. I hope Chrys/Fiat can enable a suspension to match it's looks.
If you want handling, try a '14 Overland or Summit with the Q-lift.
Put it in sport mode.
The new Cherokee uses parts from the Alfa... it is NOT an Alfa.
You may like the handling, but drive one.
