It's just a car, but it's pretty sweet. It's not totally neutered like a lot of wanna be SUV's out there (ie new ford explorer), has some chrome which gives it a little substance (I know that's subjective), and the exterior is outstanding. The exterior lines are smooth, but it does look 'muscular' whatever the he'll that means. It's really sharp. To each his own, and I don't judge but it's pretty cool (as I've stated ion several thread on this site) that Jeep has earned back the right to be mentioned with Range, Infinity, BMW, etc. The rest is preference, with this caliber of suv, it's all good. This car is really fun to drive.
That's just it. I never felt Jeep should be mentioned with these vehicles. They were different. While you may feel Jeep is adding to their world, I feel they are steeling from mine.

I made the change to Jeep not only for the fact that they are now competing with the luxury brands mentioned but because at the end of the day when my wife has to drive home from work in 2' of snow, I know she is in a Jeep. That says a lot. I couldn't say that about any other brands except maybe one.

Re: 2011 GC Too Typical?

You guys have forgot what this thread was about. Of course you bought a wk2 and won't say it's bad or ugly. But is the new wk2 too typical?? Well yes. It has too many similarities to several suvs out there on the market. Many that have been made obvious on this forum. Not to forget it practically has an identical twin....the 2011 Dodge Durango. So yes. In my opinion, it's' not all that special no more.

I don't think it's ugly, and I'll probably end up getting a wk2 srt8. But imo it lost some personality.

In a thread with a title OBVIOUSLY asking for multiple and differing opinions, don't be surprised when you come across one that doesn't jibe with yours.

And yes, A Santa Fe. In a post above, someone else stated if you were to remove the signature 7 band grille, who would know it's a Jeep? I might be at the vanguard of Wk2 displeasure, but I'm obviously not alone.



I guess I deserve that! Because you are a half-way normal WK2 owner, I'll give you this one caveat. I've yet to drive one. I felt much the same way about the new Mustang, but since driving one, I've become a fan. Still not crazy about the looks, but the interior and performance won me over. I will reserve complete and final judgment about the WK2 until I drive it too. One should realize 100% of my comments have been about the new truck's looks.



Hahaha! Maybe. I'm all out of Coke Zero.

I still love you all!
WOW... You have horrible taste in cars and he's right you sound like a hater.

As Ron Burgundy very appropriately said to Veronica Corningstone (albeit in a discussion about San Diego being discovered by the Germans in 1904 and of course means, whale's vagina...)
