Weird.....despite advertising for today, there is no video available. Deadlines to Fiat/Chrysler must be similar to the Pirate's Code........

Well, now wait a minute.

Today we saw lots of links to reviews from automotive outlets across the country, talking about their experience with the new KL Cherokee along Hell's Revenge in Moab.

Perhaps what was being referred to was the fact that embargo was lifted on those reviews today.

Clearly not... As there are pictures of it in the review.

You are asserting that you believe the 22 second preview clip, displaying all "offroad" shots and specifically geared to the Trailhawk model, was posted to let people know they would be able to read reviews from unarmed media sources on that day?

Come on Strat, continually cheering the underdog is only fun as long as the underdog tries.....

I dunno, I thought that was a pretty good explanation of the situation.

It could also be like those YouTube horror ARGs where they don't post the latest Slenderman videos until midnight so it's truly scary... only instead of the Slenderman we get Cherokee sightings... :lol:

I actually like the Cherokee.
I got the humor of it... Just tired of the dead horse beating I guess.

At first I also thought it meant a video was being released. But then again, look at the title. "Tales of the Trailhawk". Maybe they did simply mean the articles were coming out.

From my experience with IT guys, they are probably still working on the Web Page and debugging it.

or its done and they haven't upload and made it live.

Vacation day or lunch break... :p

The reason why, is because they are trying to make sure the vehicle is a 100% before they let people drive it. A lot rides on this vehicle to come to market. They want a more successful launch then the Dart. Especially when the market this vehicle will competing in is one of the most sold niches in America right now. New engines, transmissions, four wheel drive systems, and etc are being ironed out on a daily basis. Chrysler has been putting so much work into these things that they have been sending out more of their vehicle testing for other vehicles like the Ram ProMaster and Ram Heavy Dutys to Roush. Everyday I pass more Cherokee pre-production vehicles than you could imagine. Here is one from yesterday on Long Lake Road near Telegraph Road...



Still no badges, and note this one has been really rough testing because of the damage to the rear bumper on the driver side.

The reason why WHAT? The video, one would assume, has already been shot. The fact that they are still working out the kinks in a vehicle has nothing to do with posting "offroad video" that is likely weeks old, and promised yesterday..........unless they are doctoring the hell out of it.
