I couldn't help but notice that all the whining about wanting Diesels has died off now that it's $5 a gallon... or is it just me?

Is it just me or does the "2009 all-new jeep cherokee" in the UK look just like the US 2008 Liberty?

Since the demise of the XJ, the KJ & KK (Liberty-1st Gen & 2nd Gen) kept the "continuity" in many markets outside the U.S. and are still called Cherokees...

IMHO, the KK should be badged as a Cherokee in the U.S. It's a pretty close successor --closer than the Patriot or Commander, anyway. If anything, it would help sales...

If I decide to get one, I'm switching the plaques, myself!

At the current exchange rate, that's a lot of dough!
