I can't believe it...JEEP. No longer "the dirtiest four-letter word" in offroad.



I'm not 100% serious there because we still have the older models.

Put a deposit on one yesterday. V6 Trailhawk with tow package, and leather bucket seats. In sequence for production, should ship beginning of November. Hopefully, they will have finally chosen a transmission program by then.

I live right by the Chrysler headquarters in auburn hills, mi so I see them all over the place. So far only company cars from workers

I took a couple pics the first time I saw one on the road. So goofy

About as goofy as a Wrangler with 4-doors. We all our opinions. I personally don't buy vehicles for their looks, I buy for functionality. From what I've seen/read the Cherokee will fill the needs of my wife as a DD. It will haul my teardrop, give me reasonable offroad functionality and will be far more comfortable in 3,000 mile trips to visit my grandson. When I want to do serious wheeling, I will use my TJ.

I like cars like I like my women first impressions are very important then once you get to know the details it will make or break a deal so in this case I'll pass on getting details

The only thing I don't like about it is that it's based on a FWD platform, but really what can you do? Other than that, it seems to be an impressive mix of offroad capability and onroad manners- a fitting baby sister to the Grand Cherokee.

Those tow hooks aren't there for me. They're there for the XJs.

But here's the thing, how many Wranglers are used for what they are designed for? I would estimate that 90-95% of the JKUs that are sold are only mall crawlers and have never seen a rock bigger than Class 6 road base. I've never understood the logic of buying a Wrangler that never leaves the pavement. Maybe I'm too pragmatic.

I think the new Cherokee platform is a smart move by Jeep to bridge that gap between asphalt and dirt. This platform goes outside the Jeep diehards and brings in a new audience. With the limited offroad capabilities, it may drawn in more people to get a more offroad worthy vehicle like a Wrangler.

Right now I'm not a big fan. In fact I dislike it strongly. I drive an XJ and I really don't like the new front end and it's all just very un-cherokee. I'm guess I'm a jeep diehard. But really I've got to drive one. How it feels behind the wheel will make or break it for me. We'll see if I can get that to happen.
