Shape reminds me of the 04 era Santa Fee, which I liked. So I'm liking this too

Side profile is definitely a 04 Santa Fe. I liked the Santa Fe as well. Back in 04, though. And the 04 Santa Fe's side profile was much better resolved.

I can't comment on the front end yet. It's obviously not finished. When they install the headlights, then I'll be able to tell whether I like it or not.

Yes, definitely not worth a New Car thread.

That said, it is like a girl with a hot body and an ugly face ;) The general shape is good, the interior great, but they can#t be serious with that front end? :ucrazy::shock2:

^^^THIS^^^

I'll wait for better pics for final judgement, but from what I see I don't mind it minus the first gen Santa Fe-esque side profile. Jeeps are supposed have straight body lines.

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.

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.

What do you mean not finished/missing the headlights? There are elements inside the housings. Matches up with C&Ds rendering pretty well too. This is as finished as it gets minus the tow-hook coverings which might get blacked out.

I'm sure the devil at the end meant this is a joke :)
