It's now a lot closer to the Compass and the Grand Cherokee than before. I guess nobody liked the dual-layer headlight setup.

One of the least-hyped debuts, but still a very important one nevertheless, was the introduction of a new AMG -53 lineup with a new straight-six engine.

Sure, the speedometer might not be in the middle anymore (it hasn't been for a while), but making room for a real infotainment system was sort of necessary.
