The only thing that really bothers me is how they took the grill and hood and turned it to one piece. For a vehicle like this, I don't think it really works.

The white one has much more ground clearance than the black one behind it.

I'm intrigued.

Cutting the packing tape on the coil springs is the final step before they leave the factory.

The headlights are in the bumper.. those are the turn signals.

There is a low range in the Patriot/Compass. I can't imagine this won't get it too.

I dunno about the 3 sets of lights stacked between the turn signals, lights and fogs. Plus the snout is hideous, especially in black. Bold choice and all, but I'm not sure it plays well to the audience. I'm sure they are testing the waters before moving the GC over to this design.

nope, I am convinced the white looks good.

It is like nothing else, and will give it a stand out image. It will not blend! This thing will sell.

Our Cherokee only got 15-18mpg. This, hopefully, should be much better.

According to Chrysler's twitter feed, that's not the final production version that they'll be unveiling in New York.

Of course not. They haven't glued the "trail rated" badges on yet

I'm not so sure about that low range:

previous rumors have the Cherokee riding atop an Alfa Romeo-derived platform also shared with the Dodge Dart, which will likely mean that the mid-size utility carries front- and all-wheel drive variants and four-cylinder power

I like it very much; save for the cx7 body lines. The angrrrrry eyes look amazing.

I didn't think the Juke was selling well enough to use as a styling benchmark.

Actually, I like the Juke's nose better.

That's the same thing as the Patriot/Compass. Hell you can even get a Forester with low range overseas.

Cause, you know, it obviously looks Japanese.

What's the deal with some of those units looking disproportionate to the others? I swear; some of those look narrower and shorter than the other by at least a third.
