Nooooo. The Cherokee was the best looking SUV. Pure boxy Americana. Don't do this!

This is the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee:

I personally prefer the current design over this 2014 refresh.

I think it just photographs poorly. I don't think it's any worse off than the current iteration.

I think the design/fitting of the new grill is awkward. The front end slops too aggressively and looks less like an SUV and more like its trying to be a mini-van or something.

You may be right thought, it could just be the photographs and it'll look better in person.

It looks like they wanted to force those corporate Chrysler Group LED headlights into the front fascia which necessitated a slimmer housing. They did an interesting job working around the new shape imo, although that central trim piece looks better in contrasting colors (a la SRT8 treatment).

The rear looks a notch better, since the current version features ungainly taillight and chrome detailing (the updated taillights even have a hint of VAG elements to them), and the interior looks massively upgraded.

They're definitely borrowing the LEDs from the Chrysler parts bin, i'm sure it'll be an eye-catching feature whilst it's driving down the street.

I just can't get over how round they made the front end look. The current model is a perfect marriage of old Jeep sharp lines with box-y features and new, sleek modern styling. The 2014 front bumper/grill area looks too soft and feminine to me. I do like the new tail lights. I never understood why all automakers don't make their tail lights LED illuminated, the design options are limitless. Plus they run more efficiently and will (more than likely) never need to be replaced.

I have a 2013 as a company vehicle, I agree that it looks better than the 2014, but I'd be quick to live with the 2014 looks to get the ZF 8sp auto - the Daimler 5 spd in the 2013 is awful.

As for the rest of the ride, the ride, the features, the fit/finish are all really good.

I'll be up for a replacement in late 2014, I'll likely go with the Jeep again - hopefully the new look will grow on me by then.

I can see how some people would. The nomenclature is pretty shoddy imo.

FJ Cruiser is never confused with LandCruiser.

A fairer comparison would be if Toyota had one model, The Cruiser, and another model, the LandCruiser. Adding in a generic word like Grand to differentiate two entirely different models isn't that smart.

I looked for a minute the other day and couldn't even find a picture of the back of this thing.

Wonder why this wasn't an issue before the Liberty replaced the Cherokee.....
