I want to thank everyone who posted on this thread.

Because my wife loved the Cherokee, we took the plunge and ordered a new Limited. I have bought only two new cars in my life and they have lasted me the last 20+ years so hopefully, Jeep will continue the tradition. I still worry, especially with the few issues I have read but we will hope for the best.

Thanks!!

My wife has a KJ that we've been talking about trading up to a Grand Cherokee Limited (with a Hemi). But I'd be okay with a Cherokee Trailhawk myself. I think Jeep is going to sell a lot of them.
That seems to be a common response, even among reviewers who commented the Chrysler let them actually beat them around on a course (apparently there is a joke among reviewers because BMW only lets them drive on a course carefully crafted to suit their SUV's capabilities)

My guess is, (even though it's not my style), it's pretty good and better than the competition it's aimed at. It's not a JK, not a Rubicon, but is a heck of a lot better than an Escape.

Certainly the Cherokee is better then the competition. It's great for it's class and for the money where someone doesn't (dare I say) want a Wrangler, but still the Jeep brand without spending the dollars on a WK2.
