Re: Official 2014 photos released!

I disagree on the jealous post above. If I would like the 14 I would be trading in it. I don't though so I am staying with the 12. Like others said it would be nice to have the option to trade up to an improvement in styling but it would be a downgrade IMHO.. No offense to the ones goin to order a 14 but it was a down grade.

The other thing, led headlights are so over done now. A damn Nissan sentra has them now... They are no longer a high end luxury thing anymore and I prefer not having them at this point...

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

Its definitely not a Jealous thing. We could all definitely trade if we wanted too, but we dont want too. The "other" is probably going to buy an Overland in white as the exterior jives with what the "other" likes. I'll keep my 12 probably until the next redesign.I think the 14 has its cues but it definitely has its misses. So far the SRT8 and Limited are the best looking. The Summit is definitely a miss.

I currently don't drive a Jeep. If I had a '12 or '13 equipped the way I wanted it, I would not be getting a '14. Since I'm trading an '11 MDX I think the 8spd and 8.4 inch screen out weigh the lack of improvement in looks.

Guess ill be keeping my 11. The interior I like. The exterior does nothing for me. Too much chrome

I don't like it at all, the rear looks like a Durango.

Everyone's taste is different. I bought my 2013 last week, after seeing plenty of 2014 spy pics and deciding that it wasn't going to be what I wanted.

No jealousy here, I was actually hoping for a sleeker exterior on the 14... maybe give me reason to trade up down the road on what is already an outstanding vehicle. Don't hate the new exterior, just don't think it looks as good and definately doesn't improve the look of the current model. As others have said, maybe it will look better in person or will grow on me... but for now I say no thanks. Is it just me, or does the new front end look like a big smile?
What where they thinking with the 14's?

There's a picture of the new Limited/Overland 20" 5-spoke wheel on Jeep's website if you follow the Get a Brochure link.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

I've gotta say, I didn't like the spy shots but at official unvieling and looking on the jeep website I kinda like the '14. I have a wrangler unlimited and wife has a 2011 GC, I'm strongly considering getting a base '14 GC to replace my wrangler, depending on the price.....I like the improved fuel economy and interior.....also looks like the laredo is now getting a touchscreen 5.0 on the base with uconnect and possibly keyless enter, I only wish they would allow you to order tow package on base laredo.

overall, I think the update isn't bad at all.

I think that's way off base and rather silly to even suggest. People have different opinions. Where do you make this leap of saying that anyone with a 2011, 2012, 2013 have jealousy issues? This is a Jeep website and the 11-13 Jeeps sold like hotcakes. There is a very good chance that a ton of members here have a Jeep in those years.

You're reading into something that isn't there. Maybe some people just happen not to like the new body style? I had an 09 Overland. Please tell me if i should like the new style or not so i can fit into the stereotype yer trying to paint. lol

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

no jealousy here as I was strongly considering trading up this summer or fall for a '14. After seeing the spy photos and a few on the road, I was hoping the final product would turn out differently. I couldn't imagine making the decision based on the interior knowing that I would hate the front-end.

I think a limited and SRT in black look sweet as the black tones down the atrocious front end.
