Jeep Cherokee to maintain look for update in 2016
The quirky looking Jeep Cherokee will keep its ‘radical’ look when it’s refreshed in 2016, according to Jeep brand boss Mike Manley.
JEEP BRAND HEAD, Mike Manley has told US-based Automotive News (subscription required) that the Cherokee will retain its new look when it’s refreshed in mid-2016. It seems, that rather then mess with the way the thing looks the brand will concentrate on ironing out its ‘quality’ issues.
“I think the overall styling, the overall shape, the overall accommodation of that vehicle is spot on. I don’t think that there’s anything that dramatically needs to change with that vehicle going forward,” Manley told Automotive News.
A strong seller for Jeep, the Cherokee’s arrival in 2013 which saw it depart from Jeep’s traditional boxy design, hasn’t been smooth sailing with its nine-speed transmission causing headaches for both the brand and owners.
“We’ve made significant progress on Cherokee in terms of the transmission,” Manley said, “and we are going to continue to look to make quality improvements wherever we can.”
