What the heck, new Jeep compass has LED tail lights?!?
 
So I pull out of work a couple hours ago and see a mini-grand cherokee looking thing coming up behind me. I knew it was the new compass but thats the first time I have actually seen one driving. I wouldnt ever buy one but I guess for a small SUV its decent. One thing that kind of shocked me is that after I let it pass by me so I could get a view of the entire thing I noticed it has LED tail lights!!! What the heck?!?!? Jeeps flagship $45,000 SUV gets the old school "light bulbs" but yet its little $20,000 sibling sports a nice set of full LED tail lights. All I know is that if they do a re-design sometime say for 2012 or 2013 I pray that the upgraded tail lights will be plug and play into a 2011. Kia's have LED tails now come on! Not only that but others cars have had them for years and years now.:confused:
Sorry just a rant haha

It probably has more to do with the fact that the car is a couple of years old from its debut and knowing they have changed hands, little was done to upgrade the tech during that time. Plus, I have noticed very few american cars even brand new have LED's compared to imports both Euro and Asian.

I bet LED lights are on the list with the first refresh of the WK2.

Dude, its a compass what do you expect? Im just stating that Jeeps low end model has LED tails when the high end GC doesnt. Seems completely backwards.

Personally I don't get the fascination with LEDs and to me they don't instantly project a feeling of higher quality (case in point being the Compass). To each his own.
