Cherokee name to go away??

Recommended Posts

The Cherokee Nation has asked Jeep to stop using the Cherokee name on its jeeps.

Read about it here: https://www.wagmtv.com/2021/02/22/cherokee-nation-asks-jeep-to-stop-using-tribes-name/?fbclid=IwAR1TyFveh98ze3tGYrBvEYTZ9VSOPM8lhdAYesgP_qt6pEZ4XSBVNZIVFEE

Maybe there will have to be a recall to rearrange the letters. 🤪

given the current culture, i was honestly surprised to see the new generation (2022) Grand Cherokee keep the name.

isn't it about time for the Jeep brand to end up sold or merged in with a new company anyway? seems to happen every so often and they've been part of FCA now for a long time!

 

also, i think it's interesting that that the Compass now looks just like a miniature Grand Cherokee, and even has a Trailhawk version. it's still smaller than the Cherokee but actually looks better IMO.

If my eyes are not decieving me, I think I have seen that somewhere before...   ;)

no doubt that a lot of "news" sites have managed to generate tons of clicks with their headlines about this story.

 

here's a little more perspective into it without as much dramatic interpretation:
