Jeep Blew It...
 
I'm sorry but Jeep absolutely blew it with the new body. I can't hold it in any longer and I've tried to let it soak in over the last few months, but I just can't get past it's wannabe X3 mixed with Liberty look. It's really unfortunate.

Before I dawn my flame-suit; yes I know one it's not an SRT8, but regardless, they use essentially the same body.


Really?

I'm not saying everyone has to agree... and you're right, it's totally just my opinion. I just wanted to hear others' opinions to see what they thought, or if I'm completely alone here.

the WJ owners were the same way with the WK. Now the WJ owners are buying this Jeep...that says something to me.

I like them all...

As a WJ guy, I'm all about the new front end. The grill looks more aggressive. The rear end is X3-ish though, I'll give you that.

I ve only sat in them at the dealer , but I really don't care for the plain wk2 interior however the srt 8 just seems so different to me, like it's not even remotely the same. I think the non srt 8 's look really good all color matched , but with the plastic along the bottom and all the other trim I don't care much for it .

I'm glad they are trying to innovate and make strides toward new design, but it's just hard to tell if this is a Touareg or a Jeep without seeing a badge. Which, if I'm not mistaken, is far from anything a Jeep ever stood for.

and then it almost looks as if, right after they raided the German VW and BMW plants, they forgot to grab the plans for the front-end. So while continuing the trend of eliminating all classic Jeep styling(the grill and headlights, which have defined a Jeep since their inception), they slapped something on that "works".

and.... Voila!

I have always thought that the WK2 looked like the continuation of the WJ design from day one but that just my opinion. I agree with "Mr. Amberlamps" & jrjeep up there in regards to liking them all though I may be a little partial having owned a ZJ, XJ, WJ, WK and will definitely be looking at the refreshed 2014 when it debuts.
