That don't look too bad........If it had the turbo engine coming out in the SRT-4 caliber and an all wheel drive system, I would almost be tempted to buy it.

I sw a Dogde Caliber with the White w Double Blue Stripe from a Cobra...looked pretty good too!

Give me one of those with the new Panther Diesel or 2.0-2.2L Turbo Diesel and AWD...might be tempting

I saw a silver one on my local dealer's lot this morning. Pretty cool. I'll have to check it out in detail when I have more time.

I saw a few of those at Camp Jeep. I thought they looked pretty good. Makes the Compass look a little better IMHO. It looks like the Rally Group is $1900.

Why couldn't they have used this design for the KK at least when you look at the front end of this there is no mistaking it for a Jeep. Even though it's a 4 banger I like the looks way better then the KK. If they made this a CRD or V-6 gasser you would at least still have a JEEP.

What, how could you use a CAR design for the KK? If you mean the frotn grill then I guess I see waht you mean but if you see one of these in person they are mush smaller than a KJ or KK. it is a damned all wheel drive car!!! Now, that isn't a bad thing in my book but it should at least have a sweet engine with this Ralley package.

Most certainly needs an SRT-4 under the hood.

Hate it! Nothing Jeep about it other than the front grill and logo. Looks like the punk Scion cars being driven around with the low profile street tires. That's not a Jeep, its a crossover CAR with a Jeep logo and grill. I expect to see those on the urban city streets with a bunch of bass thumping out the back and neon lights underneath illuminating the road beneath the car at night as everyone within a 1 mile radius hears 50 Cent raps with their windows rolled up.

Look for it in an innercity near you! LOL

Once owned a car with ground effect plastic all around like that. Parking blocks, curbs, pulling into peoples driveway's etc would scrape and rip off that low ride plastic left and right. Not to mention what a snow drift with some ice in it does. I won't ever own a car again with that stylized plastic so close to the ground...it serves no purpose other than to get scratched and cracked/peeled by everyday obstacles. I can't imagine that thing could go twenty feet offroad without ripping something right off. No thanks.

I don't mind it. It is by no means a truck but Jeep has to make a car to stay competetive. I wonder if Jeep will make a real rally version and enter it in the WRC. That would be sweet.

It makes for a pretty CAR, but it takes me back to years gone by as in when Jeep came out with the JEEPSTER a rather nice looking style but unfortunately only 2 wheel drive {what a Waste} It's just history repeating itself, if you want a car buy a Chrysler or Dodge if You want a true 4x4 buy a JEEP.
Sad but I'm afraid we will never acheive this goal again :cry: :evil: :cry:

I am going to agree with Pote and Rush345, it is a cheap and gutless Fast And The Furious type station wagon. It has no business wearing a Jeep logo. I am thinking these will be at almost every high school in the US.

Yet again Jeep proves the point I've been trying to get across...

http://www.lostjeeps.com/forum/phpBB3/vie ... torder=asc

twice in 1 vehicle...

NOT being anything close to what a Jeep should be as far as off-road ability.
Advertising LIES. Just like the new KK add says it's "ALL JEEP" based on a dodge, this calls it a ralley car because it has fog lights.

I got fog lights on the KJ. Ralley time.

I want to make it clear, again, that I'm not playing the "your new Jeep isn't as good as my old Jeep" crap the goes around everywhere else. Point is, IT'S NOT A JEEP.

Interesting article about what models may be getting the axe. Commander, Liberty and Compass among them.
