beyond a first fleeting glance, theres just far too many differences to say they will feel similar to any passenger

In general the style reminds me a bit of the latest Mustang, which is a good thing, it does seem a bit busy, but also pleasant and practical enough, and in an off road vehicle where you probably operate switches with dirty hands, a lot of dust inside or gloves in winter, the " a switch for most functions" is much preferable to hitting a dusty touchscreen at an angle off road..

Also given FCA is among the companies that offer probably the most personalization options on their "style" vehicles, i guess body color - to resemble the metal dash in older CJs - will be just one of many options, that should also include various other colors of plastic (black, metal look etc...)

Altogether, I like the interior, but generally the looks are rarely the problem of FCA vehicles.

Not usually a fan of external colour matching interiors, but seems to work here. Looks busy but cool. Not bad at all.

more pics including Overland variant, which was inevitable. I'm sure a Summit version with 20 in wheels is around the corner which would be a cash cow for FCA.

Oh how it begs for true competition from Ford, Mercedes and Toyota but not GM.

If Ford would do a real Bronco and not an "OJ" Bronco or an Everest as a wannabe Bronco, they would find success.

A (Dodge) Ram Power Wagon throwback would also be an easy one to do off the Wrangler pickup.

agreed a Bronco competitor is long overdue, as is a baby G-class instead of a third coupe SUV.

Just the way the exterior color transfers to the interior. Nothing more.

Moving on, are they going to increase production enough to satisfy demand?

Just noticed design touches the concept from 2016 has in common with the new Wrangler.

take the grill for example....
