    Could also remove the storage rail thing from the left side of the cargo area.

    Which is kinda dumb. I haven’t used it yet. It holds the Trailhawk bag. That’s about it.

    Yeah, obviously. o_O What if i want a bit less than the more capability with only half a heated seat ?
    Yeah, obviously. o_O what if i want an SRT to be fuel efficient ?

    Chromed tow hooks ? Is this the special non scratch chrome, or anti mud chrome ?


    Like i said Blurred. Lets not invest in marketing brands, or trims. Lets do away with easy brand identifiers like cross-hairs. Whats next Gladiator front ends on 1500's ? :rolleyes:

    These upgrades will surely help put Compass and Cherokee further apart and make Cherokee more of a class leader.

    Without a Trailhawk-like front approach angle, that's a good question

    Still can't wait to see the refresh in Trailhawk form. I always enjoyed driving the KL trailhawk when I worked at a CJDR dealer. Did lots of KL pdi's.

    Yeah, same here.

    My decision is down to a refreshed KL Trailhawk or a new Wrangler Sahara/Rubicon

    When I was comparing cargo space in vehicles for replacing my Dodge Journey I discovered the cargo space in the Cherokee is pathetic; the Ford Escort, at about 5-6" shorter than the Cherokee had about 20% more cargo space. I ended up getting a Ford Edge. FCA didn't make anything I wanted in Dodge or Chrysler and I refuse to buy any over priced Jeep.

    This is exactly why the Chrysler CUV's are important to add to the showroom. They can emphasize thinks like good cargo capacity which is something that is often compromised in a Jeep in order to achieve good angles for offroad use.

    I'm not sure how the Ford Escort is even relevant, other than it's a smaller vehicle.

    But yeah, the Cherokee is not competitive in rear cargo capacity.

    ...and...congrats on the Edge, I myself like them. But they are a bigger vehicle than a Cherokee too...

    I should say anything, but good luck with the interior on that Edge.... when was that last time the Escort sold in NA, and isn't that like comparing a new Cherokee to a old one when the impact standards and safety in general where very different.

    I assumed Willy was really talking about the Ford Escape. Ford Escort was a little sedan that they haven't built in NA in 15 years.

    Well yeah the Escape has great cargo room and horrible breakover angles... Can't really compare to something that must make it through Moab?

    And now we get to the reasoning behind he Chrysler CUVs. They will allow Jeep to have a bit more breathing room instead trying to directly compete with the segment leaders while also trying to have the best capability.

    ...and at the risk of "ad nauseum" this is why Chrysler and Jeep CUV's in the same dealer make sense!

    The Cherokee actually has a decent amount of cargo floor space. What KILLS cargo volume is the angle of the backlight/D-Pillar...
