I was hoping for a more intimidating look like the Trail Hawk. It looks like a generic SUV.

post the trailhawk pic and the new WK side by side and you will see the cues.....they did leave the fender vent off though. maybe that will be reserved for the next SRT8?

Could look pretty cool with a lift.

Honestly, I didn't like the WK when it first came out at all, and it grew on me. This, I like from the start better. I'll make my final decision when I see the first one on the street. Photos, don't do some vehicles justice.

Are they calling this one the WL?

I must admit that Chrysler doesn't do electronic crap well sometimes. So, I worry a bit about such a complex system. It's interesting though.

Looks like they went to dash-mounted headlight switches... I hate that.

I still hate the front end treatment, and it looks like the door panels may intrude on the cabin even more than they do now, but I dig the overall look. So effin' glad cruise is back on the wheel where it belongs, too.

And boo to ditching the handbrake.

Hell yes to eleven inches, though, even if I have my doubts about the always-accursed air suspension.
