Re: 2014 Pics No Camo

I agree on the tailgate of the Durango. Other than the sides being about the same, I don't see anything else on that rear that looks anything close to the Durango

Re: 2014 Pics No Camo

I think 14' GC tails look like the Durango's headlamps

Re: 2014 Pics No Camo

exactly...Almost identical and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

The shape of the '14 tails (internal lights) are very close to the reflector portion (upside down) of the current durango tails when lit up. I am not referring to the shape of the housing but the actual shape of lights when lit. i believe this is why some make remarks of how they are similar. The current wk2 does not have the same internal reflector as the durango.

Re: 2014 Pics No Camo

Tell you what though, those lit-up LEDs look pretty sweet, I was curious to see how they'd do them and from the photos at least, I really like the way they look.

Re: 2014 Pics No Camo

I guess I'll have to wait and see one up close to make a real decision. When I look at the pictures in the link in the first post, the new headlights look like they have black tape on them? See the driver side looks like it's peeling off. So I'd really like to see the quality of that trim around the new headlights. It could be cool, but it could be really cheesy if it's not done right I guess.
I don't know, I really like the HID's I have now. the auto brights are awesome and give a great view. My Lexus only has regular beam HID and uses standard Halogen bulbs for high beams. I could never figure out why, but I know I like these alot better.

Re: 2014 Pics No Camo

At first I only saw the silver grille and was like "OMG EW". But the painted grille with the Compass setup looks better. The headlights look small and out of place on a large vehicle though IMO.

I think if they keep that same style for the higher end models with full chrome grilles its gonna look hideous with way too much chrome. And it sounded like the base models are going to have that hideous silver grille surround.

I still prefer the earlier look. I was hoping for something a bit more... styled in the tail lights. They look pretty boring, but it may just be the pictures.

Re: 2014 Pics No Camo

we sure that silver/grey is no more than just an unpainted grille they slapped on? Because that seems like export headlights with the silver turn lense. It may be just a primered grille they slapped on for testing. Surely they wont do a chrome grille with that design.

Let's hope it was just a primered grille they found. It's tough for me to imagine that they won'y offer a chrome grille on higher end models. But truthfully it'd look terrible if they added another piece in there to allow for a chrome grille AND the rest of that stuff under the headlights being painted.

They should have just stuck with the original design.

I was told "chrome grille" for Limited & Overland...
