Re: Quick! Which One's the Compass and which the 14 GC?

It's obvious Jeep is going through an identity crisis...

The Cherokee got lost in the shuffle along the way. Doesn't know what it should be or how to look. Remember Jeep has been owned by the German's, a three headed Hellhound, and now the Italian's for over a decade..

It will be interesting to see what the brand and the products will look like in 3-5 years.

Re: Quick! Which One's the Compass and which the 14 GC?

[QUOTE=SRTgirl;775184]Seriously? The 14 lovers have about 4 million posts on why the 14 is the best thing since sliced bread and everything before it is inferior. One guy disagrees and the whole lot of you attack defending your ride as the greatest ever.

Too funny!

I've never said that the 14 is superior in every way to previous models. I think every version of the GC has things I love and things I'd personally change.

I personally like the 14 over the 13...which is why I'm buying one...but would not start 2 threads in one day about how much I dislike the '13's.

Re: Quick! Which One's the Compass and which the 14 GC?

IMO, it would be refreshing if the WK2 subforum had more lockdowns and threads placed in flammables. Don't want Deb to have too much free time, plus she still is holding out posting photos of her own new toy.

Yep, Imma just trollin, it's half the fun.

I don't see what the big deal is. I actually love the '14 GC and the wife is set on the Compass. Guess we'll be a Jeep family.

I am not one who followed Jeeps history. Until I joined this forum I never realized that all Jeeps had a seven slot grill. I did know that they all had slots.

I always thought the Compass was intended to be a Baby Cherokee, even when they didn't look so much alike. And IMHO that's nothing to be ashamed of.

Re: Quick! Which One's the Compass and which the 14 GC?

My wife has been driving her '08 Compass since it was new. I can't wait to park my '14 GC next to it in the garage (just for a little while, I'll be happier driving it).

you could do the same exact thing for dozens of car companies. Of course car companies want to Brand their look.
