What Jeep should develop is a worthy, RWD-based successor to the Cherokee XJ, but sized like the original ZJ, slotted in between the FWD Compass and the 2-row Grand Cherokee. That would give Jeep a truly unique offering in the compact SUV/CUV segment.
I like the way this Limited model looks. I think it's nicer looking then the white Overland Jeep showed a little while back. As long as it's available with the panoramic sunroof, the new Grand Cherokee WL74 may very well be my next ride.
"WL74 will feature rear styling reminiscent of the 2005 to 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee (WK)"
Overall the WK74 looks attractive and well proportioned, but the rear styling seems more derivative of the Kia Sorrento.
I hope you're right, because I agree. Aside from vastly improving the Cherokee's proportions (and thus looks), as well as everything else you pointed out, it would give Jeep a unique offering in the compact SUV segment. Leave the FWD/AWD models to Chrysler and Dodge.
