Re: When Is The next JGC compltete Redesign?

Yea, honestly, I think a few guys and gals from Chrysler/Jeep who have been working with Jeeps could continue designing, building, marketing Jeep Wranglers and Jeep Grand Cherokees indefinitely as a stand alone brand...

Of course. But then again, the all American Cherokee / Liberty design morphed into the 2014 oddity called Jeep Cherokee. I honestly cannot accept that an American mind designed that but even if they had a say, the FIAT voice was louder.

The WK2 Jeep is probably going to be the last truly American designed Jeep and from now on FIAT will influence any future designs.

Re: When Is The next JGC compltete Redesign?

Well, this appears to be a Dodge Journey equivalent from the current Fiat lineup.
FIAT Freemont
It's the closest to an SUV in the FIAT group fleet. All others (from Alfa Romeo and Lancia) are more like (very) compact CUVs or hatchbacks (think Subaru Impreza Hatch) nothing close to what the new Cherokee looks like.

I think you mean it looks to be a dodge journey (in drag).

Re: When Is The next JGC complete Redesign?

I'm interested, but at the same time I don't want to see it. I'm satisfied with what I just bought and don't want it to look old because the newest thing just got released. That being said, as long as they don't go the Cherokee route, I think it will be a great looking vehicle.

Re: When Is The next JGC complete Redesign?

Maybe its only me...but I read your concerns about what might change (or not) in 2 years with the JGC and my suggestion would be...enjoy your Jeep today !, who kows what might happen in 2 years...
Have a great day
