New Cherokee....thoughts?

I dunno.

While it's clearly no XJ, if I think of it as a Subaru competitor (which Jeep sorely needs), I think it could find a very important niche in the Jeep line-up.

I'll reserve judgement until I see the final specs, but I think it could be promising.

Thoughts?

Well, it had to keep up with the now a day styling or it would be a flop right off the bat.
BMW, Mitsubishi, Volvo and so on styling.
It sure beats the look of the liberty by a mile.
It's certainly not the old shoe box with doors on it any more that's for sure.
I'll bet it is a hit with the women.
Only time will tell...

The head lights, grille and bumper have got to go.

Some things should be iconic. These pics just scream to me "I can look just like every other SUV out there!" The lights are what kill it for me.

As a self proclaimed XJ fanatic i find that "thing" to be a smear on the name....... The current liberty looks WAY more like an XJ than that thing does. its not even on the map...its curvy........if they put the 97-00 style XJ back into production i would be at the door of a dealership with a check as fast as i could. I had seen those pix on the internet and i was hopeing it was one of those proposed designs that would be wiped off the board like so many of their other amazing Concept vehicles. I would have even take the trail hawk concept over this thing. i for one want to see the Forward Control, and the J10 style pick up they have built, calling it the J12, go into production. But i think the one that really got away was the Hurricane. that was a true beast.
