Trailhawk

Ordered!

Since the first incarnation of the WK2 ive wanted a GC, was glad I waited til they came out with the reboot. Then wanted the Diesel. And I waited, and thought and waited and thought. Even had an order put together and priced. I had my card out to put the deposit down... but couldn't pull the trigger because I was gunshy about the price. Sure, I knew it was worth it. To get more car i'd have had to spend 80k on a Porsche or the like...

Then I saw the announcement of the KL.. The front end weirded me out a little. But I thought about it. thought about it being many years down the line from the original Cherokees and what I might have done differently and couldn't think of anything. Then I saw some more pictures. Then I saw one in real life. Then I watched the youtube videos. Then I built and priced. Then I called my salesman in Houston (many of you know him I think)... And today I ordered it. TRailhawk in Granite. Loaded.. Everything on it, and it came to 20k less than the GC I wanted.... now it's 6-8 looooong weeks before it arrives... But I cant wait.

To all of you that have your new chariots... Congratulations. Keep the reviews coming. To those of you waiting on your order... i'm happy to be in the same boat. Keep the Dream alive!!!!

You are going to love the Granite. I picked up my Cherokee Limited today in Granite and it is just a gorgeous color. It is what I would call eloquent and not likely to be a fad color and go out of style soon like some of the more flashy colors.

Can you post some pictures of your granite in real world lighting? Also, I'm wondering what the TH will look like without the hood decal. I should be picking up my whip at the beginning of next month. Anyone want to review the hawk from a civilian perspective rather than a journalist perspective?

Congratulations. The wait is worth it. I finally received mine this week after 3 months waiting.

Short review.. It is the best riding and most comfortable vehicle I have owned. It handles great on the street. The ride is firm but not harsh. All of the controls are within easy reach and intuitive. The seat are amazingly comfortable. I cant wait to try it off-road.

Re: Trailhawk

I'm. Horrible. At. Waiting. Patiently.

How do yall pass the time? There simply aren't enough accessories or mods out there for the KL to research to pass the time while i wait (not even in D1 yet)

Have yall happened across any good sites?

Re: Trailhawk

The Granite Trailhawk is very nice, especially with the Brown interior. We were going to order one, but the exact model arrived at a dealership when we were test driving. We knew it was coming based on their website.

The LaneSense feature freaked us out 'cause we hadn't read the manual yet and didn't know the car would steer itself! We haven't tried the parallel or perpendicular parking yet!!
