Have they done anything to address the quality control? Probably not.

Nice, but generic front end.

Idk...something about it feels less masculine than the pre-facelift.

There's something strange looking about the front end it. It looks stretched out. And as a whole the SUV still looks like a platypus.

It's an improvement (not a difficult accomplishment), but still not great. It would look better with bigger headlights.

^^^THIS^^^
I was hoping for more than a slight change. I was hoping for an exorcism stylistically in the nose.

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...

I just don't get how Marchionne did everything to bring RWD back to Alfa, which is right, but made the Jeep Liberty FailWD.


If only I could smash every FailWD SUV on the road...Dacia Duster too... it even more had to be RWD.

Do you not understand that an SUV and a crossover are two entirely different types of vehicles?

You do realize that an FWD/AWD platform has some advantages over RWD/AWD, right?
