Agreed. A white one (or any lighter color for that matter) will be really apealing with all the lovely raw plastic in the front. This is one dislike with the current version and now they only add more raw plastic.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I kind of like it. However, the new azz end just made the '12 and '13 models look boxy and angular like the old WK1. Im thrilled they finally dumped the rear brow. Im not sold on the headlights though and always thought they looked kind of funny on the 300's as well. Im willing to bet with new wheels and some new lines the new SRT version is gonna be pretty dang salty

It will be interesting to see how the SRT differs from the other models. all of the masked spy shots show the SRT as having the same lights and LED DRL as the current SRT with only the grill being different (smiley).

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

additional pics...I apologize if they've already been posted. I'm guessing the light design will change some or at least I hope so.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I dislike both the headlights and taillights. I also dislike how the grill goes under the headlights like they do.. My opinion and not because I own a 2012, just because I don't like the look of the 14 so far. If I liked the look I would buy it but at this point I will be sticking with the 12 for the better looks...

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

Looking at the new pics, I like the taillights. I don't mind the headlights. I am not a fan of the chrome rings around the grill but I could learn to live with them.

I just think the front bumper / grill transition should have been left more like the original design. The line between the bumper and grill (below the headlights) is distracting from an otherwise clean design.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

As a (albeit new) WK owner, it just looks like a progression of what they started with the WK2. Starting with 2011, they started looking mini-van-like, especially with those more rounded back ends, and this looks like even more of that trend. Can't tell from the pictures, but did it also lose ground clearance too? Can't imagine that thing out in the woods doing very well.

But I'm just a neophyte and could be totally wrong...

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

Is it just me or anyone else think that the fog lights are much higher than before? What's the point of having them so high when the fog lights are supposed to be lower so it can cut through fog.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

How's this for a possible "cleaned-up" render of what is going on behind that black tape on the headlights, keep in mind the "black" under the headlights near the grill appears to be a plastic-insert (space-filler)...not tape.

Hope you like it!
