    2014 Jeep Cherokee: This is it

    Jalopnik

    We've seen development mules of the next small Jeep crossover/SUV parading around for months. In our minds it was the 2014 Liberty, just wearing an Alfa Romeo Giulietta body but was also a good bit taller. Through these exclusive photos we've learned two things. First, it won't look anything like an Alfa. Second, it won't be a Liberty. This is the 2014 Jeep Cherokee. That's right, the Cherokee is back.

    First things first, those headlights. It looks a lot like Jeep is taking a page from the Nissan Juke handbook here. The narrow lights on top are combined with some larger bulbs next to the grille. I don't hate the Juke, so I don't really hate this either. Some may see it as a Jeep that's sucking lemons, but there's nothing wrong with a little boldness. In fact, Car and Driver had already predicted a fairly insane design like this in an earlier rendering. They were super close.

    Anyone know any jeep forums?
    I'd love to see their reaction to this.
    If I were them, I'd petition to have it renamed.

    Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee: This is it

    I *LIKE* the grille & HL graphics ... kinda fits in with many of my Mercury imaginings ... tho doesn't really say "JEEP"
    plus-otoh
    I don't see any resemblance to the Juke

    (or Isuzu VehiCross as posted elsewhere)

    my problem is the sheetmetal, THAT does look generic-Asian imho;
    all needs to be more rectilinear


    don't like the messy way they did the lower cladding either
    in fact,
    having more of the VehiCross's "spacepod+macho" exterior (wubbed & still wub) would be a big improvement imho

    There's a brief article on autoblog with better photos:

    http://www.autoblog.com/2013/02/22/2...al-in-a-hurry/

    Photo gallery:

    http://www.autoblog.com/photos/2014-jeep-cherokee/med/#photo-5660552/

    IMO, it looks better in the autoblog photos although, this may be one of those vehicles I have to see in person before I make a final decision. The interior could make a difference as well.
