    I think the big question is if it's less polarizing will it sell better, worse, or not make any difference?

    Will the "Massive Site For Mopars" tease it like Dodge is doing with the Demon?

    Nah. The 1993 Ram was polarizing too. And the PT Cruiser and the LX 300 and the Aztec and the YJ Wrangler. Some polarizing designs end up being universally accepted like the Ram, some fade from the original design like the 300. Designs like the Aztec end up as an example of "what were they thinking?!?" and some just need time to be accepted for their design changes like the square headlights on the YJ.

    The Aztek is and always has been my immediate reference when I need an example of a hideous vehicle.

    And then the Buick version was actually reasonably good looking so it matters how you implement the front and rear clips on vehicles.

    Yes, polarizing as in love/hate, attractive/ugly, that's neat/WTF, Etc. But often it's a polite way of describing something that's less than pleasant to the eyes. It's like when a real estate agent describes a house as cozy...he really means it's small and be careful to not bang your head on the doorways. Cherokee's mug very much fits that bill, but it sells...so either folks like it, don't care, or don't notice...the end result is the same.

    And with a Jeep, it really isn't about looks anyway (at least to me). It's always been about capability.

    Beside road noise, wheels falling off soon as you drive the trail...LOL Quality is not always as speculative by JD or CR.

    Sorry, a former Honda owner here, I can attest, NEVER AGAIN will I BE DUPED. ;)

    Yup. My sister-in-law had an Accord several years ago. There was always something wrong with it. She traded it for a Buick Regal, and hasn't had one issue with it other than she feels the 4cyl is slow...go figure. Lol

    No Polarizing is not the same as UGLY... look it up ;)..... what it means is that it doesn't have universal appeal... it creates passion either way. Ugly is more universal... So the example here is Honda vs Cherokee... the Honda is Ugly the Cherokee is Polarizing. Polarizing can be positive in that it means there is passion. Passion equals sales... Typically it is better to be polarizing then it is to create apathy

    Which, unfortunately, the current 300 redesign took much of the polarizing out of the style.
