Gone is the no-frills, get-exactly-what’s-expected vehicle that has not been in production since 2001. In its place is a noticeably smooth-lined, dual-headlighted, crossover that would have looked fine, perhaps even attractive, as part of Nissan’s or Hyundai’s lineup, just not as a Jeep and definitely not as a Cherokee.
