I really like borh new lights and the rear looks a lot cleaner without the oversized chrome trim.
I wish that they had not kept the 2 piece trunk handle ( 90's style).

I think both front bar and grills are temporary. No way jeep designers would have broken the car's straight lines with a smiling soft curve at the front.
I have faith in jeep therefor it must be a placeholder.

I hope so...I was set on trading up for a '14, but probably won't have a huge yank if the grille/bumper appears like this. Those headlights would look sweet with a more edgy straight line bumper/grille combo.

Is it me or does the front look like the head of iron man?

By the way it looks in the pictures. Even with the black tape removed, it still looks very Audi-esque to my eyes. You may see it differently, of course.

IMO, the existing WK2 looks like:



And the new 2014 spy shots look like:

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

First, did anyone else notice that the rear spoiler appears to be redesigned?

Hope you like it!
Looks like there is more black tape around the lower grill portions.

True. Perhaps another silver frame around this section like around the fog-lights?

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I really like the headlights and the grill that now goes all the way under the headlights. Is a more integrated look and is not chrome.
Also the lower bumper area is more aggressive and the rear glass spoiler is bigger and more aggressive looking.
More like the Range Rover Sport feel.
The wheel design suck I rather have the 5 spoke we have now. Also like that they took the chrome out of the back door over the license plate. And the chrome strip on the fog lights I like instead of all that thing being chrome. The taillights match the headlights now.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I looked at the tail lights on the motor trend website, I like the tails as an individual set up but then look at them as a whole, still not crazy about them. I keep looking at the front end refresh, I keep wanting to like it but the it seems rather rushed. They had gaps to fill in, with the new bumper cover and headlights they had space to fill in, so lets give the grille cat fish whiskers under the headlights and since there is more space in-between the headlights and grille lets add a plastic filler. I do like what they have done with the grille overall in the center with the chrome rings and the grey/body color grilles.

I noted that too and would bet that there is such a silver/chrome frame.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I do like the chrome trim removal and "GRAND CHEROKEE" Font change.

I dunno guys, now after seeing these pics I think im gonna like it. The grill extension under the headlights is still kind of awkward, but maybe once I see the higher end Overland it will grow on me. Im thinking the black tape is covering up the LED's. The rear end at first I thought looked kind of weak, but after seeing these new pics im really liking it. Cant wait to see a Overland and Summit!!!!
