Top 10 Vehicles From Another Planet

3. Jeep Cherokee

The original Jeep Cherokee was a rough and tumble utility that was built like a railroad spike. It was rugged, affordable and very effective. Later models were powered by an indestructible and torque-rich straight six engine that could extricate the little truck from just about any situation.

After a multi-year hiatus Chrysler is reintroducing the venerable Cherokee nameplate, but things just aren’t the same. The new model, which goes on sale in the third quarter of the year, looks nothing like its revered predecessor, in fact it looks like nothing else in Jeep’s lineup. In addition to its unprecedented design the vehicle is built on a car-based unibody architecture. This 2014 model is most certainly from the Things Just Aren’t What They Used to Be planet.

    Variety is the spice of life right? I’m glad we have “weird”, interesting cars rolling around. It sure beats a world filled with Beige Camrys.

    I agree with every entry, but am surprised that the Nissan Juke didn’t get at least an ‘honorable’ mention. Maybe it was too obvious. Haha! Nice job Craig!!

    I wonder why the GMC Hummer wasn’t listed. Everyone knows it’s a Hummer when they see that baby drive by.

    My car ranked #1 :) maybe most people are boring for not liking every single car on this list. I love all of them except for that ford van…I don’t do vans

    Also had an FJ when they came out but traded it for more towing capacity. So, “Take me to your leader”. And not Barry, we don’t suffer fools well.
