This picture doesnt show much since the screen is blank, but this unit controlled everything including climate control and the interface was very good. I dont think it does anything the Jeep doesnt already do but its kind of nice to have a more integrated system instead of your typical car that has a radio mounted in place and a climate control mounted under that. Either way the Jeep is amazing, but I just wish that one of the most expensive cars in the Chrysler line could have received the same treatment.
Several Chrysler products had this system as well as some Dodge cars.

Am I the only one that thinks the guys at Chrysler are making the steering wheel with the backgroung look like weird faces. On the GC it looks like a crazy Rabbit but on this one it looks like a really happy funny face.

I did the same comparison a few years back between the Touareg and the MDX. The Acura just seemed "dainty" compared to the mass and presence of the Touareg.
There's nothing "fragile" about the MDX. I had one, my dad had one, and my brother-in-law all had one at one time and we drove them for years and none of us ever had a single problem.

That is the 830N.

I didn't call the MDX fragile, I called it dainty

I don't give a shit how long they run or whether anyone has a problem with them they aren't SUV's, they are glorified station wagons. Just like the Ridgeline isn't a truck either but Honda can build almost anything they want and the lemmings will still beat a path to their door to buy it.

Re: 2011 Chicago Auto Show Jeep display. Lots of pics

I like the MDX infact like I said in my original report the new loaded MDX with saddle interior was the absolute only other SUV at the autoshow which caught my attention. I like Acura's so im sort of partial since I recently had a 07 TL-S which was great. I would for sure consider the MDX but the price was around $10,000 more than my Overland I ordered so that was getting pretty steep and still thought the Overland was more exciting.
