Now, all those who were going to buy it for the new tranny, but said they changed their minds only because of the new look, will have to step up on January 9 and place their orders. If not, they will walk the hall of shame.



This information is based on absolutely nothing. I hope I was able to take your mind off the smiley face Jeep for a few seconds. Sleep well tonight.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I am not saying that the headlamps look bad, just that they don't look as "clean" as I think they should have based on the bumper design. This is confirmed as folks inside Chryco on this very forum have confirmed there was another lamp that filled the entire void. Obviously something changed that made them use this new headlamp, I just don't understand why you would design something that so obviously doesn't fit.

Again, overall I like the new design (I think the rear is very nic and overall the front is as well). I just don't get the headlamp design.

I'm with you on this. I like the changes and I'm excited to see what the interior will look like, but this is the face of the vehicle and it disappoints me to see they might leave this gap open. Even if there's some functioning piece there, they could do better at making it blend instead of what we're seeing.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

It's probably a decoy, the real ones are the one with the photographer in it

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

So what color are the WK2s in the spy pics? True Blue? Or some other color we've never seen before? Looks like a navy blue kind of.

Either True Blue or Max Steel (going off the samples)

Agreed. I hate the Laredo chrome look that goes all the way past the headlights. Glad I bought a 2012.

I do like the chrome surround on the Laredo's step bumper.

I'm not sure how I feel about this look. I suppose the look could grow on me.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

Well there goes a change to really step it up. This refresh it horrible. Those front headlight WTF. Terrible. Jeep dropped the ball big time on this one. Well, I guess I'll be looking at a different SUV next year. Thanks a lot Jeep.... I was really hoping for something special.

Dude, you're basing your opinion on a couple pictures. Wait until they release the final product & go drive one before you make your decision.

The guts of this vehicle are going to be amazing- new tranny, diesel option, computer/nav/radio upgrades.

Also, you have failed to grasp one or more of the following: proficient typing skills, print editing skills, or mastery of the English language. To use your words I think you dropped the ball big time on this one (see "it horrible" and "Those front headlight WTF. Terrible." You write like how Charles Barkley speaks!

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

Turrible, just turrible. Lol

Have you noticed that is been quiet for awhile that the complaining has stopped? Maybe because people are finally realizing that they haven't even fully seen the front end without tape or front on to make a final decision.
