Re: What the heck, new Jeep compass has LED tail lights?!?

Hopefully LED's and seperate turn signal lights are in the refresh. it's 2011, it's time to stop being cheap. They have the white space below the brake light like there should be a turn signal there but yet they share the brake/turn signal lights. This might sound stupid but I hate cars that don't have a separate turn signal. the GC always had a separate turn signal until 07 when they got cheap and only put in one light bulb. the US is the only country in the world that allows for brake/turn signal to be same bulb. They had to make the European have a separate light for the turn signal..so wouldn't it be more efficient to just have one brake light design instead of making separate ones??

Agreed, those lights are pretty ugly. And I don't understand the reason for outrageously oversized backup lights...hopefully the 2012 and 2013 redesigns will feature LED tailights that'd be sweeeet

I totally agree. It seems like a simple thing, but it sort of annoys me too that the Compass has them but not the new GC.

With Audi, their more expensive models and trim lines get the LEDs, not the other way around.

If this is upsetting, you better not check out the NAV available on the new Dodge Journey...

Re: What the heck, new Jeep compass has LED tail lights?!?

Will the '12 Cherokee get the same navigation systems as the new Dodge vehicles? Because if they do the early '11 adopters will have a very dated navigation system when low end dodges have better technology in them. I might consider trading in my '11 for a '13 since I'm a fan of new technology. I'll let '12 go by. I did find it surprising that they used the same nav systems as they did in '08 models.

Thats kind of surprising to me because I think they absolutely do cast a feeling of high quality the second you see them. I know you have seen a new Audi or something like that at night and those tail lights just scream high quality, uniqueness, and just all around bad ass looking. Not only that but LED's are the new technology and get the job done much better and more efficiently as well.


As far as all the comments about how ugly the tail lights are....again, this post is not about how ugly the compass is im sure everyone here will agree it will certainly not win any beauty contests, its just in reference to the compass having LED tails and the JGC not having them.


If something like this doesnt stand out in the crowd and all around just look impressive to you then I guess its just not a big deal to you. Here forget I even mentioned the Compass here is a nice example from Audi :-)

If done right, like in your Audi example, the LEDs do scream luxury and look very classy! But if done wrong, like in the Compass pic, it just enhances the cheap image and looks like crap!
