Glad I Found This Forum

It's good to find a forum with a positive perspective
Seems like lots of Jeep owners want to look back more than forward.

Hi all, I look back and drive the AMC eagle 4x4. I have my sight's on the new hawk. In town soon (I hope the bugs are out of its beak) and if it flies straight it will be my eagle replacement. Maybe I am the target buyer.

Hi Everyone - currently driving a 2002 (purchased new fall of 2001) Jeep Liberty that I originally purchased to tow my 33/3400 pound boat and travel back bush roads on fishing trips. This vehicle has been one of the best I have ever owned but now has over 235000 km and is starting to show her age with required repairs and some minor rust. I have been patiently waiting to see the new Cherokee and prefer the look of the Trailhawk, but am a bit nervous about small reduction in towing capacity, interior cargo capacity, and durability of new 9 speed transmission. I will give the Cherokee a serious test drive as soon as my local dealer can obtain one, and hopefully answer all my concerns.

Hello Folks
- I am currently driving a 2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD and thought the new Cherokee would be a nice step up in terms of size and power. Having seen both the Limited and Trailhawk at the NY AutoShow furthered my curiosity with this model.

Jeep is working very hard to prevent any future recall which only means quality is job one with Fiat on board. And I would imagine it driving a bit more European, like the Ford Escape.

I like the look of the Trailhawk like most here, but I would need to drive one in order to give it a go. I am also looking at the CX-5 and Hyundai Sante Fe Sport.

The website now has configurations without sunroofs or 360 and backend views :(

Towing Reduction

Hi Everyone - currently driving a 2002 (purchased new fall of 2001) Jeep Liberty that I originally purchased to tow my 33/3400 pound boat and travel back bush roads on fishing trips. This vehicle has been one of the best I have ever owned but now has over 235000 km and is starting to show her age with required repairs and some minor rust.

The V6 is rated at 4500lbs... looks like plenty for your boat. The 9 speed and the more powerful V6 will probably make the towing seem easier. I think the 9 speed issue is related to software programming, never heard any negative discussions about its mechanical toughness. Cargo capacity is a potential shortfall of this vehicle in my mind.

Hello all

I'm a new member. I'm currently driving a 2008 Jeep Liberty Limited and look forward to seeing the new Jeep Cherokee in person. My dealer tells me he will have some in next week. Glad to be a new member.

Welcome :)

How long have you owned the Liberty for?
Keep us posted on the Cherokee's your dealer is getting. Which dealer is it? would you be able to find out their allocation?

Hey, guys. I am currently driving a 2003 Honda Accord EX-6speed, my third Honda. Never owned an American car in my life and was never interested until I saw the first pics of the 2014 Cherokee back in February. It is so nice to see a site where everyone is enthusiastic about the new Cherokee and not bashing it. I placed my order in August and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival.

I am currently an owner of a 2013 Ford Escape Titanium AWD with every available option. I am interested in the Cherokee mostly for the tech. package. I already have many of the same things but I would really like adaptive cruise control. I'm undecided about the front end but I do like the interior. I haven't even had the Ford a year yet. I just can't seem to stick very long with a car. Maybe I'm addicted to new car smell. Maybe I just love new technology (I also own a Nissan Leaf).

No. Actually, the Escape is a nice vehicle. I did have a problem with the brakes and the 2.0L Turbo is a gas hog. As I said in my post, I change vehicles a lot. I will have to like the Cherokee a lot when I test drive one (and get a good deal) to make me trade in the Escape.
