I think the comparably fast angle of the windscreen did shapewise work better with the sharper front end before the facelift, adding the slightly more angular nose does indeed give a stretched out feel. You often have this problem if a facelift actually changes the shape of parts, not just the detailing or lights etc., as decent designers usually see the initial shape as one, even if it might not be a beautiful shape to begin with,,.,
As I have pointed out before, I did actually like the pre facelift Cherokee, it was something different, which is already quite something in the huge sea of Cross Overs nowadays, that tend to look oh so similar. SUre, quality is a hit and miss, and in Europe it's too expensive too, but it had character. This, though generally still decent looking and likely pleasing the masses more, has IMO less. I do however clearly prefer the new tailgate, the previous one without the number plate in it was "too clea" somehow. The interior could have used a touch up here and there though, it does feel a bit "previous generation" by now...
