Pretty sure I'm going feel the same way. I considered a ridiculous number of other cars to various levels, and I was honestly against the idea of a Cherokee for a while until I found that I just kept going back to it for consideration. Eventually it was the only car I was seriously considering.

The other two vehicles I dove into the most were new Miata RF, and the Ford Raptor - but those are obviously very differently vehicles. But the Cherokee isn't 3rd choice - feels like the vehicle I was looking for the whole time, I just didn't know it.

Miata, Cherokee, Raptor. Pretty broad spectrum! Nothing else came to mind? Say, a BMW X6??

Not the X6, but generally I was looking at sports cars, trucks, and off-road. Cherokee was the sweet spot, and I also love the styling, so win-win.

The actual list of cars I looked into is probably 30 vehicles long, including everything in the compact crossover segment of note, but those were the representative ones in my mind.

I'm a huge fan of that hydro blue. Did you consider other colors?

Vehicle of my dreams? Hmm ... always stay skeptical, but enjoy what you've got while you've got it.

The dealer close to me had the hydro blue and they have big discounts on those. So what was a $41k vehicle went to $34k but that one didn't have the nav. Other than that there was a black one with the same price and no nav. Or I would have to drive 40 miles away to see a white one and another black one with sunroof. They all have the technology group though. Or I would have to drive 2 hrs away for a gold limited with indigo interior.
