No No... The KK is actually a Liberty, just like the KJ, they just badge them "Cherokee" overseas as there is already another brand vehicle called a "Liberty" out there.

Thumbs down

Make me laugh when they, claim its back to the classic XJ style ? ? ? What??? Its nothing like an XJ.

Yeah well done Jeep? Take an original platform shrink the front end of a Commander the Ass end of the Dodge Nitro chop shop them together and claim you have a new Cherokee...Why do I feel there was something done on the cheap??? I can see a lot of imagination went into the new.... (whatever it is )

At least the ugly scared looking KJ had its own identity!

The KK? YUK...


"Oh" Yes I'm still waitinmg to see a NEW JEEP Cherokee!

Definitely looks like they put it together on the "cheap". I highly doubt they spent anything on their design team whatsoever. Having said that, I don't mind the look of it, but then again I'm new to the Jeep world (loving my Rubi). Personally I think it looks like a morphed Patriot and Commander. Only similarity to the XJ to me is the boxiness, but definitely more of a mix with Patriot/Commander.

Its definately not a stand alone. More of an adoption of idea Nonetheless it makes the brand more powerfull on the world wide market. Not that I give a sh*t about that anyway. Nitro looks better.

Does it ? ... does anyone actually know ?

"The new KK Cherokee features a substantially upgraded monocoque chassis/crash structure" http://editorial.carsales.com.au/car...w/2898532.aspx

"Indeed, this Jeep is probably a great deal better in its handling and roadholding than you might expect from a ladder-chassis 4x4 from America" http://www1.autotrader.com.au/mellor...4?OpenDocument

Personally, I reckon the looks are a big improvement over the KJ (until you get to the front); it kind of looks like an XJ/KJ love child. But I can't go for the Commander front end ... no way, or the chrome grille. I'll wait for the model with the revised headlights, either XJ or JK style.
