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

It looks like a good vehicle overall, besides the look of the front end. If they put a front end similar the the Grand Cherokee on it they would have been golden. I am not sure how this vehicle will do...the compact CUV segment is extremely competitive and most buyers in that segment do not care about off road capability/heritage. I think this car may undergo a "emergency refresh" just as the honda civic recently did.

I am not sure. I think a few of the Jeep / Chrysler designers have their heads stuck in the sand. But that is just the impression I am getting.

I think they nailed it from an interior and technology standpoint. But the exterior -- the headlights and DRLs, the rear hatch, etc. -- are a styling disaster.

The repeated comparisons to the Aztek should be hints that they need to address the styling immediately.

Nothing wrong here that an emergency nose job and butt tuck won't fix....

x2, I dont think they are like way off.

I think if they changed the headlights (would require change to fenders) so that the DRLs and the main lights were one upright retangular that curved over the hood at an angle like the slats it would work. If that makes any sense.

For the tailgate, just move the license plate up onto the tailgate, instead of on the bumper.

I think the interior is fine.
