Looks great, right? And why does this new Cherokee look so, hm.. surprising? Like it is really happy to finally see us. Its new design may tell us that designers wanted to let everyone know that this new Cherokee model is a completely different Jeep vehicle. It has better handling level on road, better control when driven on other terrains, and in general, this car is safer, more comfortable and modern than anything Jeep has yet created in еры class. And to empathize all of these amazing qualities, Yankees developed a matching, absolutely magnificent design.
Well, maybe magnificent is not the word. Here’s what Marcus Allen, who is responsible for Cherokee’s new design told in his recent interview: “We wanted to create a car as if it had two different halves. The upper part is exquisite and stylish and has brand Cherokee lines, and the other part is kind of brutal and harsh and is designed for all terrain drives. At the same time both halves are clearly separated with plastic molding that encircles the vehicle from every side.”
Seems like a great idea one again was interpreted wrong. Jeep CEO, Mike Manley, however, stated that such brave design can’t please everyone at once. Perhaps its recognition and understanding will come later. And while we wait for this understanding to come, the car still looks as elegant as transformer box. In the segment where RAV4, Tiguan and Freelander have occupied the market, Jeep hasn’t had a single model that could compete with these giants. Maybe this new model has a chance of becoming great and popular. New Cherokee is based on Alfa Romeo Giulietta platform and this already guarantees good performance. As for the all-terrain abilities, this model will have a version with downsized suspension and even a blocking system for rear wheels. Great clearance and wheels are also part of new equipment.
Next after Cherokee a luxury seven-seated all terrain vehicle will also be presented, a descendant of Grand Vagoneer and Сommander. And a mini-Jeep will follow right after that.
