Yes, definitely not worth a New Car thread.

That said, it is like a girl with a hot body and an ugly face ;) The general shape is good, the interior great, but they can#t be serious with that front end? :ucrazy::shock2:

Again, this looks like a Chinese rip-off of the '04 Santa.

Well said. There's no need to italicize or remind readers in any way when a statement is so obviously sarcastic.

Ditto.

I can't comment on the front end yet. It's obviously not finished. When they install the headlights, then I'll be able to tell whether I like it or not.
I also do not think this is a final cut design. These could easily be a carefully taped up prototypes. Sure, its very close to production ready, but there is no way in hell Chrysler will sell something this ugly and poorly built. Wait for the final and official details to make a call.

Woah. No need to get feisty. I think turbonium959 makes my point in that your statement could be read with seriousness. The design seems mostly done, but still lacks a real finality with all the weirdness.

Lighten up. You're on the internet.

Thank you for letting me know. I didn't know I was on the Internet, so I apologize for being "feisty" (assuming I was feisty in the first place).

And there you have it. I italicized the comment above to show my acquiescence to your earlier suggestion. Peace. ;)

I've chosen Comic Sans as my official sarcasm font for myself the other slower-to-recognize-sarcasm folk out there. Here is the amended statement:

I feel it also reflects the feelings this Jeep gives me, coincidentally. :)

I sure hope you're correct. Fingers crossed.

Its coming out officially March 29 at the NY Auto Show.....

My sense is that purists might have a problem with this one. My hope is that the only problem people have with it is supply. Wrangler and JGC sales are stretching the factories to the limit.

^^^THIS^^^

I'll wait for better pics for final judgement, but from what I see I don't mind it minus the first gen Santa Fe-esque side profile. Jeeps are supposed have straight body lines.
