I have read several separate bloggers who have said it does not photograph well but looks much better in person. (Jalopnik actually started a thread about cars that look better in person than on paper, leading of with the Cherokee)

Has anyone here actually seen it?

When I first saw the pictures I hated it, but seeing it in person makes it an lot better, but the only one I would consider would be the trailhawk.

In person, I actually like the look of the KL, especially the trailhawk

As I mentioned before Fiat/ Chrysler has too many new things going at once with this vehicle and top of that everything is overly complicated. For example, start with the body, then transmission and then the engine. Look what happened in the 80's when Lee Iaccoca rushed the new electronically controlled ultra drive system with out fully testing it. You would thing they would learn from their past. Oh well. I am glad I got my Lib when I did.

I got a laugh out of that one comment :

Parking lights--check
turn signals --check
Big a-- grill -- check
Headlights -- we forgot the headlights!!

That's why they should've named it something other than Cherokee. Jeep is introducing a whole new generation to the hassle of getting the idiots at the parts store to type in the correct vehicle.

Are you trolling or do you not know the difference between WK2 and KL, or GRAND Cherokee and just Cherokee?
