Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

^^^ daaaamn, the front end of that Compass looks surprisingly good!!!! It has the overall shape of the spy pics of the 2014, but has a MUCH better shaped grill and no ridiculous looking grill that extends under the headlights. I am going to keep my fingers crossed that the spy pics we have seen are just temporary and the 2014 Grand Cherokee is going to look something like the Compass above. I don't know about that horizontal opening in the middle of the grill, but besides that I'm impressed!!!!

Unfortunately it's not a Compass. That is the Grand Cherokee you see in the picture.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

It'll grow on ya. I remember how the previous WJ generation looked so much better to me when the WK1 came out. I still think the WJ looks good but it's so dated now, kind of like the WK1 is becoming....

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I had a WJ and if I could buy a new one today I would. I absolutely hate the headlights on the WK. Then the WK2 came out and I fell in love once again. Now I think im just going to purchase a lifetime warranty for my 2011 overland. I dont like the new crossover look at all.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I am really curious if anyone will successfully put the original WK2 front clip on the new WK2.

It looks like the headlight area is roughly the same size and I think Chevyboy or Marlon said the frame and mounting areas are all the same.

Then you would get the better looking front bumper but the newer interior and CRD / 8-speed. Hmmmm....

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

The more I see, the worse it gets. I was finally starting to accept the headlights and then to see them with that bumper/grill setup makes me want to vomit. Did they change the look to make it easier to assemble? The front end looks soooooo much better prior to the refresh. I'll still keep a positive perspective, but I hope the interior and full reveal stuns me.

That looks surprisingly good in that picture.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

Personally I love the look of the WJ. I have never liked the look of WK and never wanted one. In fact I still drive my 04 Overland with 54k miles on the clock. The front of the new WK2 to me look so much like the WJ. This is a good reason why it sells so good. But I wanted newer design engine+transmission. I have now 4.7HO + 5 speed transmission, why spend $45K. But now when I can get what I was waiting for, it comes with silly smiley face???

Get a 2013. I never liked the WJ driving experience. Test drove when they came out and my parents have one. My ZJ, WK, and now WK2 were/are all better drives. My 2012 Overland with 4x4 V8 and air suspension and 6 speed transmission drives so well. I love it. Although, I'm sure the 8 speed will be better.

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I agree the WK2 is an evolution of the WJ. The WK1 was just...bleh. I liked my WJs better than my 06 WK Hemi. I totally get the WJ guys that wanted to skip the WK1.... I wish I would have. Love my WK2!

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

I loved the WK exterior except for the headlights on the front, those always bothered me. When I bought my 2010 I was originally in the market for a good used WJ but none were to be found and I still wasn't in love with the WK2. Well that changed . I saw a Maximum Steel Altitude at the dealership and that did it. I fell in love with the MS and I loved the Altitude but I don't like the gathered leather it was offered with. Well in any case had my 2010 a year and traded it in for my WK2. Now I think back to the WK1 and think, compared to the WJ and WK2 the WK1 was somewhat out of place. I loved my WK, but it really doesn't hold a candle to the WK2. I was also happy that I really didn't lose my butt on my trade either. I really didn't care the WK and WK2 are really two different Jeep worlds apart.
