A lot of old school guys aren't having it.The world is changing, and tastes are changing. My next door neighbors just bought 2 Fiats, a 500L and an Abarth. The Abarth is tiny, like a toy, but my wife liked the 500L, only not sporty enough for her. When I showed her the Renegade she was smitten. We're Jeepers. Although we're not rock crawlers, we get off-road, and 100 inches of snow is about normal for our average winter. A lot of people say Fiat can't build real Jeeps, but if all they were building was Wranglers, they'd be out of business. Our Compass is a bear in a foot of snow, and since they're probably going away in the not too distant future, the Renegade is definitely on our radar.
I'm already collecting Social Security, so I'm no spring chicken. You either go with the flow or get washed away. The only thing that's for sure is that things will change. I know what you mean about the Pathfinder. Our baby (he's 41) traded his Pathfinder in on a Tundra because he needed towing power for his Airstream.A lot of old school guys aren't having it.
Tony, this is not directed at you, just pointing out the history of changes with the Jeep brand in the past.A lot of old school guys aren't having it.
the Cherokee Trailhawk is a great SUV. lots of snow here in PA since I got it in November and it handled every storm like a champ. in nice weather, it is a great road trip vehicle...it's a head turner with the non-traditional Jeep looks, but it is a Jeep in every measurable way...can't wait to get it off-road in the Spring and test the Mud setting and on the beach to test the Sand settingHow is the Cherokee 'Hawk? I owned an old XJ and I loved it. The new Cherokees weren't out yet when I had to get a new vehicle so haven't had a chance to test drive/ride in one yet.
