Question Is it worth upgrading from the '14 to '15 ?

Was just wondering if the changes are that major.

Re: Is it worth upgrading from the '14 to '15 ?

From what I've seen and read only the Summit has some changes for the better (new interior color options), the rest of the line is virtually the same, albeit that some features like duel exhausts are no longer available below the Overland/Summit trim line.

One man's major change is another man's "meh"

What is different?
What is that worth to you?
How much would it cost?

You get an extra 5hp and that's about it.

From a 14 to a 15 would be like throwing thousands of dollars into the toilet and flushing it

Re: Is it worth upgrading from the '14 to '15 ?

I had a 14' and now have a 15' and the changes are very minor. Suede headliner with pano, extra 5 hp, srt center caps, fog lights match the rest of lights (not yellow), that's all I can think of. I don't see the changes alone as a reason but I also look at other factors.
Edit* It also has the active noise cancellation but hard for me to make direct comparison since I got rid of my 14' 6 months ago.

I have bigger plans. "Destroy A Cherokee for Charity". Start a gofundme campaign. Purchase a new Jeep Cherokee. Charge people money to destroy it. $100 for 3 bat swings, etc. Then set it on fire. Film and youtube the entire thing and leave the gofundme account up for 6 months after to allow people to continue to donate. Take all the excess money and give it to a charity.

Why you ask? It's a win win. I've owned a couple of loaded Cherokees (let me clarify, I was young and my dad bought them for me to use). I loved them. I would have purchased a new one had they not been so damn gay (sorry Jim). The new Cherokee was the biggest disgrace from Jeep yet and it scares me to see what's in store for our next generation SRT. I despise them and they get uglier and gayer the more I see them. It's a very effeminate, Euro-Asian Homosexual look that I just can't stomach.
