Report: The current Jeep Cherokee’s facelift should maintain its current polarizing looks

The Jeep Cherokee has been with us since last year and it’s been a mixed bag in terms of reception, mainly with its aesthetics.

It’s a love it, or hate it sort of ordeal, with the traditionalists hating it and missing the classic, boxy look of the classic XJ Cherokees.

And the news doesn’t get better for its planned facelift in 2016, which Jeep’s CEO, Mike Manley said, should maintain its overall, core looks.

“The overall styling, the overall shape, the overall accommodation of that vehicle is spot on,” remarked Manley. And while many car enthusiasts might be divided with their agreement on this comment, Jeep has sold quite a few number of Cherokees since it was revealed, making it a hit and the best selling SUV in the United States from January to June of this year.

Do you think the Cherokee just needs an overall redesign? Or have you gotten used to its looks?

Let us know.

    I think FCA should concentrate on fixing the problems with the transmission first. That 9 speed transmission is a joke. My 2015 Cherokee has been in the service department 6 times. Hesitation upon acceleration, hard shifting, lunging forward when shifting, coolant leak, fuel injection problem, replaced bad axles for wobbly front end after I argued with them for two weeks. Their customer service is terrible and their product is terrible. But yes… lets worry about redesigning the exterior not fix the safety issues.

  • But maybe you are an idiot because FCA will FIX both the exterior and the safety issues.

    Why exactly am I an idiot? FCA admitted to the problems my car has and has told me over and over that it’s a computer glitch with the 9 speed transmission and they have no fix for it. My Cherokee has been in and out of service for 34 days. 6 times and they still can’t fix it. And I’m the idiot?
