I doubt it. I predict the GC handily outsells it, and it may sell worse than the Liberty did.

It's pretty well obvious that they will have an emergency redesign. That's going to have people saying "Don't buy the 2014, the 2015 will be a lot better looking". Reviews will likely even point out that its a lame duck exterior before it's even launched. Not very many people will buy it because of this, and those that do will want STEEP discounts. You may have a small number of people who buy it and just don't care about the styling, but I think the majority of people will avoid it because of its looks and forthcoming emergency redesign.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee debuts with controversial design, automatic parking

I don't think its a controversial design. Its just a bad one.The side profile is great and the interior is nice also.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee debuts with controversial design, automatic parking

The interior and some of the technologies it has like the self park and the other sensors is something that the 2014 Grand Cherokee crowd doesn't get even in the Summit trim

I find the car overall attractive BUT the 3 light design is bad. If they get rid of the middle lights, or the bumper ones become simply DRLs, it *MIGHT* work. I would also have made the top lights a bit wider and moved everything (low/high beams) there. It's ugly and there's no way around it.

Going back to technology and interior, the interior is as nice or nicer than the 2014 GC.

The All-New Cherokee has over 70 available Safety & Security features including: new ParkSense<sup>®</sup> Parallel and Perpendicular and front / rear Park Assist<sup class="tooltip" title="">+</sup>, Blind Spot Monitoring<sup class="tooltip" title="">+</sup> (BSM) and Cross Path Detection<sup class="tooltip" title="Always check visually for vehicles prior to changing lanes.">+</sup> with dual radar sensors to monitor driver blind spots, standard 10 airbags<sup class="tooltip" title="Always sit properly in designated seating positions with seat belts securely fastened at all times.">+</sup> with standard full-length side-curtain & side thorax airbags<sup class="tooltip" title="Always sit properly in designated seating positions with seat belts securely fastened at all times.">+</sup>, new LaneSense™ Lane Departure Warning<sup class="tooltip" title="">+</sup>, and new Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go<sup class="tooltip" title="">+</sup>.
I red we do not get that on the 2014 JGCs. Summit gets the front Park assist, the rest of the trims gets Rear park assist only. I will personally look into hacking/adding front park assist on my rig.

I am sure it will sell well to mostly 30s to 40s soccer moms.
