Re: Official 2014 photos released!

Looks like the control backlighting is now blue/white, instead of green. That's a real nice change, the green backlighting was pretty dated.

Good to hear. Still prefer the 11-13 front end. But like most new things it may just need to grow on me...

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

I like what a see a lot more than I thought I would, but the exterior touches on the Summit are a bit much IMO.

Where the center portion of the lights are shorter they had to make a plastic mesh filler to go underneth?!? Why not just make the lights fit the whole space? The extra body color trim that runs above the bumper and below the headlight looks like an afterthought as well. Seriously the whole front end looks like something an amateur body shop peiced together from various eBay finds. I absolutely will not be buying this style. Sooo.... looking forward to the new MDX coming out this week.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

Love the interior. However, the exterior will take some time to grow on me.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

What an absolute step backwards in everything visually.

The exterior has been ruined. The headlights and front end are terrible, the wheels don't fit the personality of the vehicle, the Summit rear end looks terrible, they managed to screw up LED taillights, seriously this could be a case study in screwing up a good thing.

The interior too is a massive step backwards, the only things they got right was the contrasting stitching on the leather and the big screen. The new wheel is ugly and looks cheap with WAY too many buttons making it VERY busy looking, the trim around the speakers is tacky, they removed a lot of really useful buttons for comfort settings, and now you HAVE to use that screen for some essential functions (A/C temperature, etc.)

Really, a step backwards in every way. I've got the feeling the price for my 2011 is just about to go up seeing as they totally ruined a great vehicle.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

Overall, I have to say I like the new model. I thought making the grille a little smaller makes it look more wimpy? I do like the headlights and interior. I really wish they would have done away with the chromed mirrors.

I think the 2013 SRT8 front end is better, lol.
