Could have done better with the interior. Ugly steering wheel, what's the deal with the all white? it's horrendous, get rid of the glass roof, the shifter knob is weirdly placed, and once again the biggest tablet they could find and just slapped it in the center dash.

I think they should go back to the Pentastar. Get away from the previous image and have a refresh.

Hopefully the engineer out some of the obvious issues and some of the less practical design choices. Glass rooves on cars are stupid. They are heavy, have poor thermal conductivity and transmit light. They do poorly in roll over situations. But every car designer who drives a Tesla right now wants to stick one on.
That sloped rear roof line looks silly. It's much more practical to have a flat hatch giving more cargo capacity. It reduces the weight of the hatch making it easier to open and close.
White interiors get dirty easily.
The floating center console I am not too sure about. It looks out of place, especially compared to how well it's done in the Grand Wagoneer. But it does come closer to the driver so they don't need to reach as far. The steering wheel controls are needlessly capacitive touch.

I do like how the integrated the sunvisor.
I agree. I thought all white interiors went away in the 80's when they deserved to be put to rest. When they age they age like crap and get dirty very easily.

I also don't understand the need to put glass roofs on cars, its stupid and needs gone.

My wife will only own vehicles with a pano roof... say what you want but it sells.

and personally I applaud any interior option that isn't Black on black on black (with a little gray here and there...), Unfortunately I am in the minority from what I can tell when shopping for vehicles, but I am thankful they do exist, and I can confirm a "not black interior" is the reason I purchased the specific new vehicles I have had of late.
I agree with you about the black on black with a little gray. I don't think you're in the minority about that, that color scheme is used all too much. People might scoff at it but I didn't mind the all blue, red, or purple interiors of the 70's, 80's, and 90's. Seems like blue isn't used that much at all including red. I think the purple is probably extinct now.
