Chrysler must be hitting the grappa really hard over there in Auburn Hills, because this thing is gorram ugly. I realy don't think squishing the vertical trademark vertical grille, and putting squinty-eyed headlamps on the front of a Jeep does much for the brand. The sides profile is also very organic and anonymous, like they are trying to remind us of Kia and Hyundai.
Remember that the old Cherokee, many of which are still running, was a small, square wagon with serious off-road chops. This thing, I am not sure what it is. I guess we'll find out.
