Land Cruiser's, although I have NOT researched the latest versions, 10 years ago they were NOT reliable at all. True Toyota has a well earned reputation for reliability, BUT, that doesn't mean every model they sell is equally reliable and the Land Cruiser of a few years ago were NOT. Perhaps that has changed, and newer Land Cruisers have proven to be more reliable.
The new Cherokee, I've heard nothing but good things about it, although the old die-hard fanatics puke about it. It is built on a Fiat Platform, and without a doubt is less capable off road than the original 80's XJ Cherokee. But still, the trailhawk version looks reasonably capable off road. Unreliable? Only thing I've heard is typical 1st MY stuff, new firmware updates, one or two teething problems fixed by the dealer with updates. Its too early to tell if they will be a mony pit of needing repair after repair.
No, there were rumors that they would move the assembly of the next generation Wrangler to a different plant. That was because it will have an aluminum body (also a rumor), but they have already broken ground on additions to the plant in Ohio, that is speculated will be new "uncontiminated and clean" rooms for the aluminum body production, moved into the remaining plant for the rest of assembly.
Government Regulation and CAFE requirements force newer models to be make design compromises, the fact is the Wrangler kept growing bigger every next generation to meet all the regulations and keep the dual live axle and off road equipment, while dragging down the whole CAFE. And the Pick-Up market is too valuable to Chrysler to sacrifice it just to keep Jeeps, that drives Jeeps to make design comprimises, like Idependent Suspensions to meet CAFE, etc.
Not saying a few of the unpopular decisions were NOT also trying to advantage of consumer desires and trading off the Jeep name as well to get more sales, instead of trying to make the best off-road vehicles solely either.
