My vote is for ugliest vehicle ever is the Nissan Cube.

But sorry, I digress.

Cherokee looks so awkward in pictures. Better in person, but still not my taste

Re: Saw New Cherokee, Just Might Give up the Grand for this Next Year!

In Germany the new Cherokee will arrive in midyear 2014. Our Jeep dealers have absolutely no infos about the Cherokee jet.

Ugliest car ever is the Fiat Multipla. I guess u don't know him?!

Re: Saw New Cherokee, Just Might Give up the Grand for this Next Year!

Was at the dealer yesterday. Saw numerous Cherokees. I thought they were OK. The biggest drawback for me was their price. They range from the upper twenties to low thirties. They had one limited model that stickered for over $39,000. Too expensive in my opinion for a small vehicle. For not much more you could get the Grand. Even my salesman agreed that he felt they were too expensive.

Of course your salesman agreed, he wants to sell you another GC! Just kidding I also agree it might be a little steep of a price but I'm not all that familiar with the segment. I consider the GC almost too small for me...

Re: Saw New Cherokee, Just Might Give up the Grand for this Next Year!

I would be hesitant to buy because of the 4Lo configuration...
They have a two speed front AND rear splitter.
Yes, there is a second splitter/transfer-case in the rear end.

I've only seen one on the road, the style is growing on me, but the price and the weird 4Lo complexity doesn't appeal to me.

Like someone else pointed out, the Forester is probably more appealing to people.

Re: Saw New Cherokee, Just Might Give up the Grand for this Next Year!

The 2014 Cherokee wheelbase is about the same as the ZJ. I have a '95 Grand Cherokee (ZJ) and I love the small size (except for towing). My dislike of the Cherokee is due to the small engine choices.

I like them. I'd drive a Trailhawk any/every day. I have not seen one in the wild yet.

Re: Saw New Cherokee, Just Might Give up the Grand for this Next Year!

I have been really surprised by the number of people that I know and that know I have a Jeep tell me they saw the "new Jeep" and can't believe how hideous it compared to mine. They don't know the difference between Cherokees and Grand Cherokees. Just last night good friend of mine who's a car fan posted this on Facebook:

Quote:
The new Jeep Cherokee is hideous. Not sure if TV commercials will help or hurt sales...
Some of the replies to that:

Quote:
I've seen it up close. Bizarre looking vehicle. It looks to me like its trying way too hard. Just my opinion. Clearly someone liked it enough to produce it. I could be a complete asshole here
Quote:
Ugh isn't it? They should have stuck with the 2013 design.
So far the Cherokee is selling. 10k last month, so who knows.

i have seen two now. the front and side profiles were just like in the pictures, pretty ugly. The back is pretty nice and the interior is a thing of art.

I think the back is one of the worst angles. Reminds me of a pre-refresh Subaru Tribecca...

If that thing was a woman, she must have fallen out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

It's 2001 all over again!

The majority of KJ buyers were overwhelmingly women.
