If you zoom in on page 135 ( the new product chart) you can see side views of the New 300, Charger, Durango, and Grand Cherokee. The overall shape of the LX cars stay the same with the tail of the Charger being a little different and the shoulder line extends past the front door handles. The Durango and the GC now share a similar body style; big improvement for the Dodge IMO.

I haven’t liked the Grand Cherokee for a little while now, but that actually looks really good. The 300 is a nice evolution as well.

depends on what measure. the SRT-8 was a cool looking car, but i’d never consider one over an ML63 AMG. that’s probably the coolest performance SUV out there. either that, or the Q7 V12 TDI for sheer lunacy t.

Jeep is definitely rocking this new GC! Look at the spec sheet: awesome engines, excellent option list. ACC and the air suspension stand out the most. To top it off, the styling is very well done in my opinion. If this hits the market at the right price point, I can see it being very successful.

I like the interiors, but I hope they do more with the 300 than a front-end facelift.

5.7L carved through the canyons with commendable poise and control, the anti-roll bars catching the Jeep’s substantial mass in the corners while the rack-and-pinion steering held the car on an unvarying line.

umm kinda looks like a bmw x5/x3 especially the back but i guess thats what u get when u take mercs designers and try and make a cheaper Mercedes in a jeep skin. Glad Daimler is actually getting the clue and not shunning the hardcore off roader

Holy crap. I think this is now the nicest looking SUV/CUV on the market.
