What do you think?

I saw this today on the...


I think my daughter is lining up now.

"Jeep will provide a glimpse of its plan for inexpensive new models to increase the brand's sales with two concept vehicles that will debut at the Frankfurt auto show in Germany next month."



"Jeep bets on entry models

German auto show will get first look at 2 stylish and sporty concept vehicles
August 8, 2005"

Don't look too bad... The first one looks like it will be along the same lines as the new Grand SRT, only slower, I am sure. Maybe develop its own tuner market... Not neccesarily good for those of us that use them off-road. The Patriot looks like most Jeep concept vehicles for the last few years. Probably smaller though, I am thinking like a Geo Tracker size... Will be an interesting time at Jeep for the next few years, I am sure!

I don't like the look of the first one. That seems to be the consensus. We're Jeep people. We don't like curves. At least, not on our vehicles!

The other one is ok for a yuppie car.

That first one may make a good family car. I would be much happier if all of my vehicles were Jeeps. It's not like I have to wheel all of my cars, Just the YJ.

The first one is too far from a real "Jeep". The second one looks ok. I don't think the younger generation would like these b/c I'm only 20 and I think the top one looks stupid. Jeeps are meant to go off road where would you take that, the mall? Stay true to what a jeep is. They need to bring back the cherokees. Getting rid of them was one of the stupidest things Jeep has done, next to the idea of the SRT8.
