Controversial design. Production delays. For a brand so often associated with off-road adventures, the description “rocky start” seems particularly apt. Mitch Clauw is the Vehicle Line Executive in charge of the Jeep Cherokee. We’ll be asking him what problems are behind the delays in getting this SUV to dealerships. As usual, we’ll also get into some other topics including Ford’s poor performance in Consumer Reports due to infotainment issues. Plus, we’ll talk about what to expect out of the Las Vegas SEMA show. And, John McElroy just got to drive Nissan’s 2014 Rogue; he’ll give us some thoughts on this all-new family hauler. Joining John in studio is co-host Peter De Lorenzo, the Autoextremist, and Scott Burgess from Motor Trend.

    John, I think the higher pitched resonance indicates a higher stiffness of the cabin. There are ways to dampen out resonances, but usually the 1st resonant frequency is the loudest.
