My bad for not being clear enough, I actually meant with the curves of the bumper intact (it looks like in your first image you smoothed some of them out, unless I am mistaken)?

That looks good too but I like the first one better personally.

BUT...here at the actual show...the NAIAS show for 2013...the 14' GC is a HUGE....off the charts, smash hit! I overheard a comment from CNN that" Jeep will not be able to build enough of these to suit the public demand" I have heard that all day!
Do you guys REALLY think the current model would continue to sell IF it looked the same but added the 8 speed? ChryCo is the experts and they didnt. Sergio made the comment today that ChryCo products will BE cutting edge and class leading at all times. So revamps like this will be common place at ChryCo under Sergio. No more 3-4 years between refreshes...that came straight from Sergio! Jeep COULD NOT continue underits OLD ways and thats what some people here want. Jeep would be dead with some people here making design choices......

Please reserve your comments until you see it in person! It is a stunning vehicle in person!

I completely agree.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

my 2 cents (not that anyone cares).. I've had my Overland since Aug 2010 and do not plan to trade up. Why? Because the changes aren't significant enough for me and I still rather love my 2011. That being said, I'd take a 2014 over my 2011 if I had to choose.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

I'm keeping my 2012. I was walking out to it after work today, and realized it's a great vehicle and why would I even think of trading it. I like the new Overland, but it would take Black Clear Coat exterior, and Carbon Fiber interior on a special edition Overland Midnight (or Overland Black Vapor or something cool, basically like an S-Limited but on the 2014 Overland so as to get the painted lower fascias and the leather dash) for me to want the new one.

Yes, a brand needs to innovate and they hit it out of the park with the first version. The disconnect is that the changes they made here are very polarizing compared with the 11-13 WK2 look and those changes are not going to appeal as much to the market that ate up the earlier version.

Just because changes were made, it doesn't mean those were the RIGHT changes. We see a lot of brands sputter including Jeep over the years for these same mistakes. Sadly they may have lost that little something extra they had the first time around.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

Glad guys you liked my little unprofessional work
Here is my second (and final) attempt, this time it's Overland:

All in all I think this could be the most bad-ass looking SUV on the road but Chrysler decided to go the other way and to do a more universal design. I think it's OK and we must respect their decision. For us it's just a matter of preference. For auto manufacturer it's one of the critical things that can harm company if done wrong.
