No reason to get upset. There are plenty of smiley cars that are aspirational. For example:

Piston Cup Champ



Of course he is happy, he is dating a smiley 911:




Aerodynamics are trendy now, mebbe squeeze out another mpg in the suv:



It aint unprecedented for Jeep:




Plus, I'm telling ya, those beneath the headlight lazer beam blasters are a bonus.

Not sold on the grille ... headlights look like they are going in the right direction.

I actually think the grill looks better on the Laredo, as it's not color matched with the body, as compared to the Limited grill. Anyone notice the sharkfin atenna and the chrome trim on the rear bumper? Hope both come standard on all 2014 models. I believe that the chrome trim on the rear bumper was standard only on the 2011-2013 Limited and up models, not the Laredo. Would be interested in seeing what the interor changes will be.

I don't think they're horrible looking, however they do look like they were taken from the new Chrysler 300. Not sure how I feel about the new look overall. It looks more rounded than the 11-13 models. I do like the way the taillights illuminate. Think its a more updated look. Definitely do not like the new front grill. Extending the grill under headlights is a bad ideal in my opinion. But as so many others said, I'll save my judgments on it until the finished product is released.

That new Grille would make a hell of a weapon. It's a curved sword on both sides!

I am not sure who is going to pay $45K for something that looks like $20K Patriot. Also looks like old Murano. I was waiting for the 2014's to get the new 8 speed transmission and NAV, but with this exterior I am not sure anymore if I am still going to do it. Hope to grow on me.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

That pic above isn't horrible, but it definitely resembles the cheaper models like the compass or whatever. Hope the Overland adds a little class to it.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I prefer the paint on the grille over the 11 - 13 chrome heavy version. IMHO the body color grille is more classic Jeep trademark.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I think that picture is of a compass not a grand.
