Jeep has done a good job with keeping their GCs compact b/c that's what the customers have always asked for.
Well, according to initial specs, it is getting bigger (once again--remember the 2005 was bigger than the 2004)... length 189.8" vs 186.7"....and body width 76.3" vs 72.6" (this was done to increase rear seat area and cargo space behind rear seats but interestingly, it did not increase total cargo capacity)...

I agree with you....don't like that it is getting bigger........

Re: What don't you like about the 2011 model or what do you think is missing?

So the new 6cyl is a 3.6ltr pentastar which should get 2 more MPG's and 280hp with 260lb tq. That's not bad 280hp but I'd like to see 300hp out of a v6. Infinity, Nissan has done it with their SUV's

Take the plastic crap off the fenders, around the fender wells, take the tail lights off the rear hatch, give me the lockers back, and drop in a 6 speed auto.

The thing looks just like the Arcadia in tne rear.

I agree but i think its the back that does it. The lights on the lift gate and that big trim piece between them makes it look like the Audi to me

I like the look of everything else except the back

Re: What don't you like about the 2011 model or what do you think is missing?

What I don't like about the new model it doesn't look refined as in there are little touches here and there that can be fixed in order to make it appear more legit ...

it's going to be like the WK release where the 05 and 06 had the ugly moldings and 07 up had the nice ones etc etc and all the kinks and issues will be worked out by the time '12 and '13 roll around

the interior is a much better upgrade than the current WK interior

I like that it has option for air conditioned seats but that's only in overland.
