Has Fiat ruined the Jeep brand? Is there any hope for recovery?

Yes, no. That thing looks like it has 6 eyes and 2 mouths....the fuck did they do?
>>
>>12406415
Teenage girls and soccer moms still want one so they're set.

Jeep hasnt been good since the last Willys was made
>>
>>12406415
jeep isn't going to be making shit that you want
>>12406519
is far more correct
jeep is going to make shit that sells, and is good from a "take people to school" perspective
not a rock crawling muddin' perspective
>>
>>12406536
Kaiser era Jeeps were good
>>12406551
its not even crawling & mudding (who legitimately cares about mudding), its about even being able to survive a decent line

off-roading is a niche

driving to work isn't

guess which they are going to sell cars to

But even 2000's Grand Cherokees had a great 4WD system. I wonder if the new ones are as good. Haven't driven the newest model but I'm not crazy about the looks.

That being said, the 2005 and the new V6 was a huge jump towards losing the offroad image. 2004 still had selectable 4WD and the 2005+ didn't. I think the next gen after that came back with the terrain selection knob though.

Obviously people of today are different then back then. Nobody gives a shit about going outside and offroad to explore, and instead something that has the plushiest confiest ride and coolest air conditioning. So companies like jeep who were originally founded for a vehicle with capabilities for off road, are no longer needed to make such things. It's too bad, but that's the way people live now.

>>12406630
Haha so true.

And recent Cherokees up until the newest ones still had somewhat of a "Luxury" look to them. You know they are a $35k+ car when you see them.

The newest one looks like a Kia while the newest Explorer and Tahoe still look like nice cars.

>>12406536
Pretty much this.

Which is why my new project is a '58 CJ-5.

It looked so clean.............
>>
>>12406676
The gen before that was nice too. My mom has a flawless 2008 that is Black on Black (black grill, trim) and it is clean as fuck. Always spotless too, gets it washed twice a week.

I'm thinkin about trying to buy it from her when she gets something else.
>>
The MJ was my first vehicle, and I always wondered why they never brought it back. Seems like it would have a buying base even in today's economy.

J-Jeep my darling? What have they done to you?
>>
>>12407006
nice comanche
>>
>>12407006
At least the jeep Comanche will never die. When the motor is done, the transmission fails, the AC busts, you can always get parts for it from an XJ.

I wish I could clone your Jeep to have one too.
