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.

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.
