WK vs Durango. you tell me.

OK so here are the two pictures of the sides of a durango and WK. tell em if they look the same.




I say they resemble each other almost as much as an RSX and new civic. But thats just me. I wante dto know your opioins on it. Just the overall shape and demeanor of it. Not the JEEP specific things you know ...

Different roof line, wheel well openings, hatch line, window lines. And finally, different dimensions. Nope. They look quite different to me.

You ever drive next to a Durango? If you are about mid way up on one it's as if there is no fender the way it fades in from the well (front one) to the grille. UGLY. Also...it's not a Jeep

they're totally different, check out the specifications on the dealer's websites:

Jeep: http://www-5.jeep.com/vehsuite/Vehic...u&adid=u&rid=u

Dodge: http://www-5.dodge.com/vehsuite/Vehi...u&adid=u&rid=u

and i have to agree with the people saying the durango is just plain ugly.

for the numbers, scroll down to the "exterior dimensions" tab.

No offense, buuuut. IMHO they only look smiliar in the way that they have four doors and a hatch. I do agree that WK is better looking. Though it took some time getting used to for me. I still want to see Jeep Gladiator released!

The WK is really starting to grow on me now. Plus I like that color.
