Looks good to me.

Good find Dave!!

I like the softer, rounded look of the new dash and the door design, but it all still looks like cheap hard plastic. I wish they would of put some texture in the dash along the lines of what's in my '06 Liberty.

I'm not too keen on a two tone dash, nor of the chrome and silver accents on everything. I wonder if the bling is standard on all models or an upgrade?? I'm leaning toward an upgraded interior seeing how the seats look like they may be leather.

I like the idea of all the controls on the steering wheel, but again I wonder if it's standard or part of an interior upgrade package.

The two white Saharas seem to have the Euro style bumpers which I don't like. You can also keep the painted roof.

Overall... I'm not that impressed.

No thanks. Soccer moms can keep their minivan interiors as far as Im concerned. I like the more spartan look. Glad I got mine before they switched over.

I thought it looked pretty good anyway.

We (jeepers who are enthusiasts - and actually go off road) have a tendency to look at all jeeps from an off-road performance viewpoint first, while the Mfg needs to make it appeal to all buyers so they can sell more of them, and most do not off road I think. (Although I think the wrangler model is probably driven off road more than the other models).

Anyway, overall I hope they sell a lot of them and can keep the Jeep Wrangler alive and well.

Mud hit the nail square on the head.... Soccer Mom interior.

I think half the problem with the Wrangler and the entire Jeep line up.... is they are trying to appeal to too many people and the Wrangler is getting further and further away from what a Jeep is supposed to be. I'd venture to say most Jeeps, the Wrangler included, never see a trail unless you count dirt roads leading to a camping spot at some state park.

The new dash can be considered a very slight improvement over the current one, but take out the fake bling and bring back something along the lines of the TJ dash (without two tone).....

Here is another link with the same pics, but the author speaks his mind and gives an opinion that I tend to agree with....

This is like the third step in progression to ifs, non removable doors etc. IMO. First was power convenience package (which Im a hiypocrite for including cause I have it), next was 2wd unlimiteds, now this.
