Arguably the most important debut of the show – certainly the most polarizing – the Jeep Cherokee has split the opinions of the B&B in a bitter feud not seen since Jack declared the Mazda MX-5 superior to the Scion FR-S. I’m not sure I’d describe the Cherokee as attractive, but I do think its reception in the marketplace will be much warmer than anyone anticipated. After all, the Nissan Juke was criticized endlessly, and it’s gone on to become a sales success throughout the world.

    The biggest regret I have in my new car buying history is that I passed on buying a 2000 Cherokee Classic back in the day... I will not say that someday about this ugly Jeep badged Fiat.

      Hang in there, I have a feeling that the next iteration of the Cherokee will more closely resemble the old XJ in appearance and capability. Once the CUV craze passes SUVs will return to being the rugged, purpose built vehicles they once were. The demand hasn't evaporated but has been overlooked and ignored by manufacturers in recent years. Some forward looking auto exec is bound to figure this out...hopefully sooner rather than later.

    Can it go off road like the older ones could? Or is this basically a car with a high center of gravity?

  • Tassos ask me if I care.
  • ToolGuy • Nice vehicle, reasonable price, good writeup. I like your ALL CAPS. 🙂"my mid-trim EX tester is saddled with dummy buttons for a function that’s not there"• If you press the Dummy button, does a narcissist show up spouting grandiose comments? Lol.
  • MaintenanceCosts These are everywhere around here. I'm not sure the extra power over a CR-V hybrid is worth the fragile interior materials and the Kia dealership experience.
  • MaintenanceCosts It's such a shame about the unusable ergonomics. I kind of like the looks of this Camaro and by all accounts it's the best-driving of the current generation of ponycars. A manual 2SS would be a really fun toy if only I could see out of it enough to drive safely.
  • ToolGuy Gut feel: It won't sell all that well as a new vehicle, but will be wildly popular in the used market 12.5 years from now.(See FJ Cruiser)
