"Car Advice" have just tested a 2015 KL Diesel Limited in Victoria.

They like it

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Back from the trip home to NZ and through the intermittent WiFi connections available around the Southern Alps region have been keeping abreast of where our KL is on the high-seas.

I think we are about 4 days shy of Auckland at the moment and are still on track for the Nov 1st arrival in Port Kembla.

Bryan - You had an AMC XJ Wagoneer. That was a classic. I wonder if the new Wagoneer (supposedly being released 2017/18) will pay tribute in some part to your XJ?

Saw absolutely zero KL's in NZ. Did spot 3 WK2's (2014's) but, saw so many WJ's it wasn't funny. So the WJ was the model between 1999 and 2005 and loads of them in NZ. All of them looking schmick as well.

For example, down at the Arrow river - gold panning (as one does - we walked in) - there was 3 WJ's, 1 KK Cherokee (that's a cutie looking Jeep) and also a Wrangler. Oh and there was this black Cayenne but he didn't go very far and didn't want to get his feet wet.

I think the Jeep is perfectly suited to the rugged NZ environment. I missed our Grand Cherokee. We had a Kluger (it is badged as a Highlander in NZ).

Plenty of room - In fact you could swing 12 possums in the cabin of that thing but that's about all we could find as a positive/neutral about it. I will not be unkind, but enough to say, it got us around for the week but it was not the Grand Cherokee that we are used to and there were definitely times when we wanted our Grand so badly.

Matt - any news from you on the brake issue? Are you back on the road yet?

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

SJand L thanks for your interest and the run down of your NZ trip.
i never owned a wagoneer i had an AMC Jeep Cherokee Limited or FSJ as they are sometimes refered to it was a 1984 model with the 360 V8 motor, we then had a ZG grand cherokee Limited 1996 for 18 years then a Jeep Compass for about 6 months until the KL arrived which proved to be a much better vehicle.kindest regards Bryan.

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

Quote from "Wheels" Magazine, November 2014 Issue:

"WINNER: 13% SALES INCREASE FOR JEEP CHEROKEE
It may seem like a meagre gain, but the oddly styled Cherokee's 549 August result was the nameplate's best monthly (sales) figure since July 1995.
Its 1662 YTD means it's on track for its best result in more than a decade."

So Julian, looking at WWL's trade route schedule (currently as posted today) and taking in Milous estimated delivery time - your TH looks like it could be loaded on the Fidelio leaving Curtis Bay November 7th and arriving in Port Kembla on 13th Dec.

Or perhaps if they are really fast with inspection and railroad, it could be loaded on the Parsifal with an arrival on Nov 30th.

Link to todays schedule: http://sagaweb.2wglobal.com/AppSched...pe=generatePDF

ETA: The dates for Brisbane, PK and Mrlbourne are a little screwy with regards to the Fidelio on that schedule but I just took the PK date as advised. (Unless of course it actually does go Akl, Melb, PK and then Brissy but that would be odd I think - but maybe not ).
