Hmm, not sure how I feel about it. It's a bit bizarre-looking up front obviously, and while I don't have a problem with the headlamp arrangement inherently it does come across as awkward; it makes me think of a pig.

The rest of the design is fine though I'd have preferred a boxier shape. It's just a tad too much on the car-like side, IMO, for a Cherokee.

On the plus side, the interior looks great and I'm very glad to see they're going back to the Cherokee name. I never understood why Jeep renamed it in the first place.

Well, Chrysler can tweet whatever they want, but it's clearly a production ready car pictured straight out of the production line. I see next to no chance the real deal revealed in March will be any different. Of course it will look better in higher trim, polished and what not, but the overall appearance, as I suspect, will be the same. That said, I guess I am the only person here to actually kind of like it.

I find the nose Aztek/Juke/ZDX ugly and naming such a road tumor a Cherokee is repellent. I know Chrysler's tweet is probably a lie, but I would love nothing for for this to be a planted leak of an ugly nose to get people talking only to debut a true stunner. Unfortunately no one sees me holding my breath. Let's just say as a previous Cherokee owner I am bitterly disappointed. This though is good therapy for when the 2015 Fusion coupe--oops I mean Mustang--shows up.

There is just something seriously wrong about how this looks.

Hmm, I'm still not sure. I think it should have been boxier; I could see the slim upper headlamps and the bigger lower lamps working better on the Grand Cherokee for example. I like it, I think, but I can see how some people won't.

At any rate it's like 10,000% better than the current Liberty.

I'd go with 10%.

Oh boy howdy! That front! It is certainly going to take a while to get used to...

It's just so very un-Jeep like (apart from the 7 bar grille)!

I can't decide. When I first saw the spy shots I wanted to hurl.

With the released stock photos, my mind isn't quite the same.
I keep looking at it and thinking "that's actually not so bad, I like how it's different than the usual" but then I notice the stack of lights on both sides of the grill again and think it's hideous.

Hmm I just dunno
