Re: 2014 Jeep SRT in Brilliant Black (pic)

Makes me glad to have my 2012 to be honest, I very much dislike how the new 2014 has the connected headlights with the grill piece, looks like the truck is smiling, less menacing up front.

I was referring to how it is one long piece now without a split in the grill, it seems as if the headlights are all connected together when they really are not. However, it does look like one piece, not the greatest step forward in design but that's just my opinion.

Also I didn't mention the bumper in any way but again I did mention how it looks like its smiling from the front, and losing its "menacing" look, again just my 2 cents.

What you see as a smile others (like me) see as an even more menacing scowl than the previous model.

It's one vehicle and it SHOULD look like everything is all connnected together...it's an improvement in my opinion.

Re: 2014 Jeep SRT in Brilliant Black (pic)

Pause the video at 47 seconds.... Those headlight still seem out of place. They look good from 30 feet away but up close they look like they might look good from 30 feet away.

I see that many of you are ok with the new look but ok isnt enough for me. If SRT fixes this lack of continuity I'll buy one. Until then no SRT for this guy. I wish jeep would allow the enthusiast community to vote on a new look instead of some secret release at an auto show. I'm betting most people would have passed on the headlight washers to improve looks and even reduce weight as well as cost.
