Don't like the front bumper or the wheels. That thing hauls though.

That bumper ruins the WHOLE car. In black it might be decent though.

What kind of transmission is in there?

Won't take long for someone to make a bumper to suit the engine. I'd like to see one with tall side grilles that incorporate the LED bar, shorter and a little bitten at the center grille.

i love my 06 Grand Cherokee, and even with the 5.7L Hemi that thing hauls. I really hope Jeep does some tweaks before the car hits the market

To everyone who keeps commenting on the LEDs: LED DRLs are going to be mandatory very soon. Basically, deal with it. Though I must say, it looks like Chrysler took a trip to Autozone and slapped a pair of shitty LED strips on the bumper and called it a day. Could've been properly integrated, but oh well.

lol, that and I'm not liking the chrome on the back or the interior trim. Silver or Aluminium finish should be used as a trim and not slapped on to cover the whole centre console.

Looks good but I agree front is no good, wish to have one though that thing is fast as hell!

Once I saw an older model one try to do some autocross in a tiny track, the guy gave up and just smashed the throttle since he couldn't make the thing turn, I LOL'd.
