Evoque with the 9-speed is showing at Geneva in a week time, while Cherokee is showing at NYC in April..DaveAdmin said:Assuming that's the 2014 and not the 2015, debuting in 2014.
I have not seen an NYC schedule...
I wonder whether Jeep or Land Rover will show first -- whoever does, gets the honor for first car with a nine-speed automatic, right?
I wonder if that annoys the LR people...?
LR is already claiming the number "1" in their PR.DaveAdmin said:Ah... my error. And yes, you're right about which is the actual first, but few in the press or public will see it that way.
Oddly enough, after seeing the new Cherokee this design doesn't offend me at all....sort of like after seeing the Aztek the rest of Pontiac's lineup became classically beautiful, but only in comparison. :frusty: :frusty: :frusty:CarsandGuitars said:
That's what I was gonna post: the 700C -- the only two vehicles we've seen from Fiat/Chrysler (aside from the Dart) are that 700 roly-poly thing and the New Cherokee. I think there's going to be a LOT of influence from the Italian designers in all the new era products, or even worse, American designers trying to guess what their European bosses would sign off on. Lots of swoopiness -- I don't mind swoopy if it makes for a cohesive design, but both the 700 and the Cherokee look like two vehicles got mashed together visually.CarsandGuitars said:
