Those headlights are awfully akin to the ones on the new Mercedes G Class concept
Cody Gillard Nov 28, 2012

I think a 9 speed transmission is too much. There is so much shifting involved which puts a lot of stress on torque converters and clutches and when they start to get old, it would be a pain in the ass dealing with slipping and hard shifting
Amer Tawil Nov 28, 2012
I think that exact amount of hp n torque is great for europe and the 8 speed is boss 200+ hp is perfect for those small roads and 400+ torq to get you up those hills :)
Boyd Boudreaux Nov 28, 2012
Thank god we bought a 13 that facelift seems to have went backwards
Kyle McCullough Nov 28, 2012
Lol at chad. You are right though, go chow on some gravel
Clay Williams Nov 28, 2012
Yes! I've been saying for years that jeep needs to go diesel
Chad Schley Nov 28, 2012
Phaiodon go eat rocks
Phaidon Chrisostalis Nov 28, 2012
German cars from the same displacement get more than 50 ho more than this.
Dale McIntyre Nov 28, 2012
I thought I read an article not long ago possibly in car and driver saying it would get a 9-speed?
Chad Schley Nov 28, 2012
The 8 speed is needed. The wife has an overland with the 5.7, great vehicle, probably the best SUV in the size segment but the 5 speed is archaic. Not sure I would get the diesel either, the 490 lb/ft is bad ass. Ours has a MagnaFlow cat back.

Also @Car Buzz I have a Cherokee withe the v6 and with the amazing cylinder deactivation, it gets 17-18 around town and 20-22 hwy. My father also has the new v8 durango and it gets 13-14 city 17-20 hwy
Larry Martino Jan 12, 2013
@Car Buzzer the only time you use the word EV or Hybrid in the same sentence as Jeep is when the sentence is a Jeep will never be an EV or a Hybrid.

Chrysler can't afford to completely re-engineer every new generation from the ground up, but they're doing a good job staying relevant. Look at the current Charger/300c, it's built on the Mercedes w211 platform that was designed in 1993.
Ian Ragsdale Nov 30, 2012
This is a Mercedes ML platform, built in Detroit, with a choice of Fiat or Mopar power. The only thing "American" about this vehicle is the where it is manufactured unless you get it with a hemi. It's a great vehicle for the money though.
Jordan Smith Nov 29, 2012
Stupid arguing on the Corvette article kept me from seeing this. Anyways, the new thin headlights look good to me but I'm not so sure about the grill.
Zachary Maughan Nov 29, 2012
Those "fins" (or whatever) under the headlights look odd, the current gen. looks great though.
Patrick Schalk Nov 29, 2012
Erich, then you obviously don't pay enough attention to what Chrysler or other big 3 companies have done with their lineup. Get yourself educated.
Clay Williams Nov 29, 2012
Car buzzer- please go away and never com back
Car Buzzer Nov 29, 2012
I bet this big ol gas guzzler does 10 miles to the gallon. Come on jeep, where are the hybrids and EVs
Guo-Sheng Huang Nov 29, 2012
Looks like Ironman:)
Amer Tawil Nov 28, 2012
Those arnt the fully exposed headlights theres camo on them im sure they'll look great props on the 8 speed
Philipp Kentner Nov 28, 2012
I like it
Alex Bouckley Nov 28, 2012
I'm not sure if I like it or not...
Clay Williams Nov 28, 2012
I like the grill but the head lights should be about 1.5 inches bigger.
Chad Schley Nov 28, 2012
All car companies update their vehicles every 2-4 years, and sometimes sooner. You see many Mercedes or bmw's looking the same as they did three years ago?? NO you don't.
Chad Schley Nov 28, 2012
Erich It's called planned obsolescence. And it drives sales, which keeps profits up so they can develop new models. Please don't be an ass and say that this is the "epitome of American auto makers"!
Shaun Conroy Nov 28, 2012
It looks like change for the sake of change. I'm not liking it, looks cheap.
William Downs Nov 28, 2012
Man I don't care how the outside looks, I drove one of them the other day, had the leather interior and all, have to say was pro ally the best ride I've had in a truck, felt extremely solid, was very smooth... wouldn't mind one if they weren't so much
Matt Piccolo Nov 28, 2012
I'm really not feeling this new look. The grill and headlights on the old model where much better
Joe Talerico Nov 28, 2012
I'm wondering how the "Jeep guys" are gonna like those narrow headlights?
Patrick Schalk Nov 28, 2012
I like the head lights on this better but I like the current grille better than this one.
Clay Williams Nov 28, 2012
I don't know this is gonna have to grow on me.
Alex Medvedev Nov 28, 2012
Looks good
Mohammed Shamma Nov 28, 2012
Much much better.
Max Jabaay Nov 28, 2012
It looks like it is smiling.
Clay Williams Nov 28, 2012
I like the back better than before.
Edgar Jauregui Nov 29, 2012
ya I see a little Q7 in the rear not that it's a bad thing as long as the true Cherokee image shows
Zack Hartman Nov 29, 2012
It's not like its bad there are different aspects from cars in others all the time
Gazel Hebbert Nov 29, 2012
You guys are always seeing something. Just enjoy the car without comparing certain aspects of it to another.
Walter Alexander Thomas Nov 29, 2012
Look like it could wear a VW logo I see a little Audi.
Austin Sullivan Nov 28, 2012
I see it. My aunt had a 2001(I think) Sequoia and this rear definitely looks similar to it.
Clay Williams Nov 28, 2012
@Janya- Really?
Zachary Maurer Nov 28, 2012
No not really. Try again.
Janya Pulusu Nov 28, 2012
Toyota sequoia anyone?
