Re: Saw 1st 2014 Today ... NOT Impressed!

ok... after reading this thread for 5 pages, I drove out to the local dealer to look at the 2014s. I forgot my cell phone today, so I cud not take any pictures. I know looks are subjective, but I like the looks of the 11-13 model front end. The 2014s were parked along with a row of Compass and they look very similar. The non HID headlights are different from the previous model years I think. The rear end, I can live with with the new tail lights. None of the 2014's had the LED/HID headlights, so I cannot tell how those look like. Oh, I thought that sharkfin antenna on the 2014s are HUGE! Is that the same size as the ones from Visual Garage?

Peeked inside and the big screen looks good, but to me, the gauge cluster looked like a Snorkel Mask. I bet the 8-speed tranny and other high tech features will make this jeep sell like hot cakes! Of course, for every person who does not like the "smiley" front end, there is at least one person who likes it.

Cheers,
-A

Re: Saw 1st 2014 Today ... NOT Impressed!

To avoid all this discussion, all Jeeps should look the same and be the same color.

Henry tried it years ago, it was a big success, and he was considered a genius in the industry.

Then, his family decided to wander from that plan and we wound up with the Edsel. Poor Henry was stuck with his family name on that thing.

That's proof that change is a step backward. Now if I could only find the crank I could get my car started. And then I have to remember to press the Eco button. Life ain't easy.

So we are just all supposed to like the new front end, and if we don't thats our problem? Its not like saying we don't like a color and can just order one in a different color.

Sorry, I just don't care for it. The 2011 got me into a Jeep, which was a vehicle I never would have considered before, and I still like it a lot. I don't know that the 2014 would have done that, and I don't know that I will stay with Jeep next time because I just don't love the vehicle like I did the 2011. I'm not saying its a bad vehicle, its a great vehicle made even better with all the new enhancements, but there are other great vehicles out there as well.

If you love it, thats great. Enjoy it. Me not loving it shouldn't be an issue for you.

I don't know how you got that out of what I wrote. If anything I was saying they should all be khaki, and have fold down windshields.

Do you own an Edsel by any chance?

Re: Saw 1st 2014 Today ... NOT Impressed!

I don't expect anybody not to like it...in fact, if you read my post I said this:

Quote:

I have not tried to influence anybody's opinion at all, I have just stated my own. You should stop assuming that someone expressing their opinion is trying to somehow make you feel as they do, and certainly stop assuming that any of us who don't care for the front clip (as I said, I like everything else) are jealous of owners of the new model.

Quote:
I'd venture to say the 2011-2013 Grand Cherokee looks more like a Compass than the 2014. That IS what the Compass was styled after......
I don't think either one of them looks like a Compass...the Compass is made to look like a JGC.

Re: Saw 1st 2014 Today ... NOT Impressed!

LOL, I'm perfectly "chill". Nobody's having an argument, we're just discussing the topic. If you don't want to discuss the topic, you don't have to participate in the thread.

If you don't care about my opinion, why are you arguing with me about it? Just accept my opinion and move on.

If you love the new look, great! I don't love it, and its not because I'm jealous of it.

Re: Saw 1st 2014 Today ... NOT Impressed!

LOL! I'm not defensive at all...how many times do I have to say "If you love it, thats great, enjoy it!"?

I am however on a discussion forum to discuss, and if someone responds to my post to discuss my opinion, I happily discuss. I'm not trying to convince anybody that I'm right, its not something you can be right or wrong about.

You're the one thats trying to lay some sort of defensiveness or "up in arms"iveness on me when theres nothing there of the sort.
