The other good part, you don't see the outside when your driving and the interior on the cherokee is great.

from what I've read, the new Cherokee is *precisely* what my wife would want to drive (no heavy 4WD action, but more capable in bad weather & rough conditions than a RAV4). I'm interested in seeing one up close. I wouldn't be ashamed to have one sitting in my driveway next to my WK....

I don't see why so many of you are acting surprised, the liberty and grand are road queens and jeep produced the compass. I was hoping the patriot would have been stronger to replace the xj when it came out. This new trail hawk is going to sell to the same kinda people that buy the compass. Look not purpose, form over function. If the wrangler didn't sell as well as it does they would drop it and keep with the cross over stuff. Jeep makes a good product they have just gotten so far away from the original utility designs that soon they may lose the idea altogether. I already have a hard time telling what the newer cars are till I can read the emblem.

Though in the early days of the classic Cherokee, there were Blazers, Nissans, Mitsubishis and Toyotas that looked a lot like the Cherokee. That WAS mainstream at the time.

Thats true but i wasn't around for that. In short jeep is selling what people seem to want. Good for business.

In the meantime we're going to check out a '96 tomorrow. My wife has wanted one of these classics for a while as a winter car (she doesn't like driving her sports car in bad weather).

I like it.

I think it's perfect for what I need it to do - get groceries, carpool kids to soccer, haul a jet ski to the lake. I do think its a little too much, needs to be more "average" than luxurious. That's what the Grand is for. Maybe in a few years we will pick up a used one. In the meantime I will just wait until the dealer gets one I can test drive.

It's not an XJ, and that's ok. I already have one.

I don't know if it's got anything to do with fiat's input, but something just didn't go right with the design of that thing. No Cherokee, Grand or otherwise, will top the XJ IMO.
