Separate names with a comma.
Thats the same location the backup camera was on my FJ as well.
Whatever they're covering with the rear camo is probably some of the biggest changes to the car. Might reveal how the roof operates, a flip up window that stows on top of the roof, or maybe angled rear pillars like on the clay model.
I'm expecting some sexy rounded edges to be fairly radical when that camp drops, along with that tri-sunroof three panel storable in trunk area roof, and a quick-remove door option which improves on the speed and ease of removal from the JKU doors. Hopefully with a powerless door option with manual windows and power locks that don't require wiring harnesses to the doors:
I.e. Power locks using deadbolts that deploy in each direction from the B-pillar ... into a female fitting in the doors.
Surprised there hasn't been any discussion about the big hood bump on the prototype.
Are we thinking this is a Hard Rock edition with its raised vented hood?
Is it me, or does the windshield glass look way flatter than the JK?
I wonder if the rear view camera in cab display will be via the rear view mirror like the option that AEV offers with there if you have no Uconnect or will they make Uconnect standard.....
Yes, the JLU's windshield definitely looks less convex than the JK windshield. Maybe the more raked angle allows it to be flatter.
My theory for the flatter windshield on the JL. The pics that admin posted confirming the windshield hinges show side hinges and not a single center hinge like on the JK. For two side hinges to work, the windshield has to be flat. If it were curved, the hinges would have to stick out at an angle.
That's a good point. If the backup cameras are required by law now, how does it display for people who have the base radio? Or maybe that's why even the base Sport is going to have a 5" screen from the sounds of it?
I'm sure that the base radio will have a display screen in it. I'd be extremely surprised if they use the rear view mirror.
The new backup camera requirement is basically going to require all new cars have a screen of some kind.
I believe Milous confirmed this is a Sahara so we may be seeing a different hood across the board. The Hard Rock dome is much more subtle. A bump like that seems more along the lines of the AEV heat reduction hood.
I was just checking out the pictures the Hood is definitely bumped up hopefully a heat reduction of some kind. Back Up Camera will be nice I cant ever see anything with my 37" tire. I see they added Grab Handels to the a pillar.
The new Compass Sport base model includes 5" touchscreen and Uconnect 5.0 as standard equipment. This is on a $21,000 SUV. I imagine the JL Sport will have the same.
I'll admit I like the looks of the new Compass. I bet Jeep will sell a ton of them.
See this new spy pic from the other thread? Looks like the grab handles are a molded part of the A pillar.
These prototypes don't look like the Rubicon and we’ve seen a hood bulge on every single prototype spied so far. I’m predicting we’re going to see fancier hood on even the standard models. The standard JK hood always seemed like it coulda used some more flare to it - lines, bulge, vents, etc.
This is a Rubicon, the telltale signs are the bigger AT tires, raised ride height, and factory rock rails.
Will be nice if the standard hood has some more interesting styling to it like the YJ and TJ. Even if just a slight raised middle part like this.
Have you ever tried spraying you hinges with plastic dip it looks and works great.
Looks like the JL will share lots of styling cues with the TJ. The windshield is flat like the TJ, and unlike the JK. Headlights match up with the end of the 7 slots, which have a slight curvature. It has a hood bulge too. I think the TJ is the best looking of the Wranglers so this, to me, is all good news. Now, lets wait and see the rear end..
