Wow, I never noticed the bottom trim is even body colored until these pics.

Well, not a whole lot. But seeing the tails gave me the thought.

Not necessarily. It was discussed back around the time of the Detroit show.

I tried to snap a shot of the window sticker while not taking a picture of myself. Does 19 combined sound right?

Resolution of the radio? How well does it work with an iPhone or smartphone in general? What's the nav like? Snappy or the same or slow nonsense gps units are known and hated for?

Is that 17/24? I'm assuming this is V6. I thought I saw somewhere 25 hwy. Interesting that those jeeps are showing up on dealer's lots and still there is no official EPA numbers posted.

In theory I think LED everything (at least brake lights) makes it feel more upscale and complete, vs. partial. But then I haven't seen the new rears in action so I can't really make a judgement until I see it.

According to the owner's manual, the rear brake and turn signal lamps aren't LED for any GC trim. I have to believe it was done for aesthetic reasons because the base Dart has full LED rears.

I have a feeling the illumination engineer worked on the front headlights first, then moved to the rear and got fired half way through the rear after higher ups saw how he botched the front lights (plastic honeycomb thingy). There's your explanation!

A full throttle congratulations on the truck! Any chance Marlon or Chevy left you a little note under the carpet or something?

From what was posted weeks ago, only the running light in the rear are LED. The brake/turn signal/reverse lights still use the cheap incandescent bulbs.

Pretty cheap, don't you think. Whoever ok'd that should go back to work for Yugo.

That's for the 4x2 model though. If this is a 4x4 then that's the reason for the drop.
