GC on the right...immediately.

Sure...the front end looks similar, but the profile makes the Compass look like a toy and the GC like a truck.

Why do you care so much about this? Don't buy a '14 and stop posing about how much you hate the '14's.

Even if you have a Laredo or Limited with the regular headlights, you should be able to tell. This has been beaten to death since we first started seeing pictures 4 months ago.. People love it or hate it.

Is this serious? I'd think one would have to be pretty dumb to mistake one for the other.

Yea. Because the Compass and the Grand Cherokee are the exact same size so it's really difficult to tell them apart.

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

As someone who owns both, (wife has the compass, i have the gc) if you can't tell the difference between the two of them, you are dumb, ignorant, need to be slapped across the face, just that guy, or all of the above. Beside the fact that there are MULTIPLE differences in the fascias themselves, one is larger than the other by a decent amount. I can see why one would say they are similar, but if anything, you can say the 13 gc and compass use the same headlights for that matter, so stop the nonsense.

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

This thread is going to the flamer soon....I think the OP just wanted to show that they look Similar and that some people (front end shot only) could mistake it for a GC IF they never really looked at them that close. The slots under the grill are a dead give away alot with other things...But us who look at the GC all the time can tell the difference, just like Copefree said, look at an X3 and X5.
