Jeep = Worst of the autoshow
 
Thought this was down right comical... Jeep GC being one of the top 6 worst at the autoshow? No design changes, modest, plus the pic of the article isn't even an SRT. Who writes this crap?

A refresh shouldn't equate to a major design change. Opinions are like assholes.

"resting on its laurels" ???????????????????????

The GC was only in it's 3rd year of an already highly acclaimed model!! What a garbage piece of "journalism".

I think Jeep should be commended for updating a vehicle they were already selling the sh#t out of!!

Well, it is called "The Fiscal Times" not The Automobile Times so I assume it was written by a financial writer who takes the subway to work. BTW what are "shorter headlights"?

My thoughts exactly. Completely senseless.

I came here to post just that. Who really cares what The Fiscal Times thinks about automobiles?

That's some great journalism. Maybe they should check their facts and find out what is new for 2014a lot more than just "shorter headlamps." Their headline states SRT but the picture is a Summit. Nice job Fiscal Times.

Apparently, according to the article, the spokesperson for Jeep said "shorter headlamps." Regardless, having the Jeep there was pretty bad, but then again, it also had a prototype of a BMW and the Lexus, so the Jeep was in good company.

"The Fiscal Times" is an online-only news site started in 2010. It was started by a billionaire investment banker to promote his political agenda, which does not include positive coverage of bailed-out companies.

Sites like this make money by posting outrageous articles which people click on and read in outrage, and then post links to the article complaining about how outrageous it is. Thus getting more people to read the article, and inflating their page-view statistics.

The best way to treat this kind of crap is to just not even click on the link.

These types of "journalists" need to take a rest on the keyboard. The "title" of SRT is misleading, and the author misses the point that the new design of the front clip was only intended to freshen up the design that they (Jeep/Chrysler) cannot make enough of right now.

This "journalist" then makes a statement about the VW being plain in the world of styling. VW makes a car with the emphasis on quality rather than the emphasis of styling...

Do your homework before writing!

It's amazing that someone was probably paid to put that together.

Guy's an idiot. Its a midcycle refresh..not an all new model.

Then the Lexus IS is the worst because its not "sleek and classy" like the other vehicles in its segment, but the Subaru Forrester doesn't do enough the stand out?!? Huh?!?!
