Overall look is good, not a fan of the rear taillights. I don't like how they are on the back hatch too. Always like that about my WJ and my dads WK. Other than that, don't see anything else to complain about.

I guess there was no pleasing me...I so loved the Trailhawk...

It looks good with bigger tires though.

I really like the new bodystyle and interior, but something just looks off with the grill. I like the WKs grill better. But air suspension + IRS and IFS, smooooooooooth on the road and quick and easy to bump it up to hit the trails.

Looks like they borrowed some ideas for styling cues from the Dodge Journey parts bin. Wonder if this will translate into 3rd row seating option? at the very least, some of the good interior storage ideas? I like it, but agree the the rear is just a little off.

I agree - then again, why not go with an electronic parking brake? Everything else is electronic.

i like it, anyone know anything about the t-case. all sorts of options. wonder the difference in them. not 100% happy at it being electronic but still, mud/sand, sport, auto, snow, rock, i wonder if the 4 low button works with all these options, lol, probably not. still, whats the down hill thing, down shift tranny? or is the t-case more than 2 gears? the 2 up arrows, what is it on bags, height adjustability? and park, WTF?

the interior is sweet, the front looks mean and the rear is sporty, again, i like it. they should sell a rubicon version with lockers and a soild front axle.

Back looks like an Audi Q7, airbags could be cool though, my audi has them.

It has 4 different levels, and you can trick the computer to lower or raise them all by adjusting the settings.

So in the summer I can lower it, and in the winter I can raise it back up.

I think the overall range from level 1 to level 4 is like 5 inches of travel.

From the side it looks just like an X5. the wheel wells are the same. From the front it looks like a new camaro.

way to go Chrysler...

This thing is great considering the state Chrysler is in. I hope it succeeds.

The exterior front looks good. I agree with the comment about the taillights, I like the current taillights better.

The interior needs more space, same problem the current model suffers from. I expected Chrysler to stretch the body a few inches and add more interior cargo space - even a third row. I also don't care for the dash guages, the current model looks better in that department.

I expected this model to have a hybrid or electric motor option, I think they missed the boat here. At the least, the fuel economy of the v6 should be double the posted fuel economy to compete with the hybrids that will be available in 2011.

I won't be trading in my 2008 for this model, sorry Chrysler!
