Curious to your thoughts as to how the front end / grille looks on the blue Limited vs. what it looks like on the red Summit.

For some reason I really dig the way the grille looks in the blue Limited photos but think it looks terrible in the red Summit photos. Maybe the new grille goes better with the darker colors (as well as less chrome)? It's a tough one for sure because based on the 2013 I was planning on getting a Deep Cherry Red...

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

A lot of different opinions here. Honestly I would rather see the new models in person when they hit the showroom before I decide if I like the changes or not.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

I still dont know what to think. What I do know that I like are the tail lights and the interior, but man part of me wants to say that is the most awkward looking front end I have ever seen. As of right now with seeing just pictures, I dont know if im going to like that front end. F'ing weird looking!!! Hope it looks better in person that it does in some of those pictures.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

Just awful. They took the best looking front end on the road and turned it into a Compass with worse headlights. It doesn't even look like a Jeep anymore.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

Front looks like a character from the movie Cars, the rear end like a Durango. Alwas wanted to have a Sahara maybe that's what I'll get next.

The rear end always looked like a Durango though, in fact I think the pre-facelift looked more like a Durango than the new rear end does.

Yes the front end does look a bit better in darker colors, but frankly that's just because it hides it more.

I think the opposite.. More rounded taillights on the facelift look more durangoish to me personally...

Chances are the 14's will outsell any previous year, but lets just say anyone who is going to own a 2011 or newer grand cherokee (including 2014) has a beautiful Jeep
I have been waiting for the release of the 2014 to make my first ever Jeep purchase. Instead, it made me want a 2013 even more. I am jealous of anyone with a 2011-2013; certainly not a 2014.

Re: Official 2014 photos released!

this may have been mentioned already, but does it really not have LED rear turn signals? Watching the 'limited' video, it appears that the signals are incandescent bulbs. You'd think with a complete tail revamp they'd make them LED.
