Re: How is the air conditioning in very hot temp?

Are there rear vents in the 2014? I thought I saw then at the rear of the console. Because I was going to ask the question that if you have dual temp control up front, which one controls the rear?

Saw the rear vents on the Overland, usually its controlled by whatever the front is set to and it has a blower that you can adjust in rear.

Re: How is the air conditioning in very hot temp?

I was messing around with this today and it seems like the driver setting controls the rear vents. Does the '14 really have a rear blower motor?

The automatic setting takes care of everything pretty well. The only exception is that the automatic setting does not direct enough air to rear passengers. When I have rear passengers, I manually turn up the fan a couple of notches, without turning the temperature setting down. I always make sure that the dashboard vents are pointed to the rear passengers for their sake and mine, as I don't like air blowing directly on me.
I wish there were rear vents, controllable by rear passengers.
Mid-90s is hot?
That's a normal summer day here in the Twin Cities (Minnesota).

We have had temps in the high 90s with very high humidity and the A/C works just fine. Of course when it is that hot out it helps to hit the Recirc button so you don't keep drawing in hot air.

I dunno if it depends on the trim level, but yes there are rear vents available.

If you turn down the flow a bit to the mid-dash vents up front, you get more air out to the sides which really helps on sunny days, plus you seem to get more air to the console rear vents--which seems to help with the vented seat supply as well.

The vented seats draw air in through all the little holes. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the vents.

I recently moved to Phoenix from Detroit and can confirm the 2014 keeps cool in 119 degree heat while running off-road desert trails. I was shocked.

Re: How is the air conditioning in very hot temp?

Phoenix AZ is like an oven in the summer. Over 100 everyday temp gauge reads 115 regularly. I open all of the windows and the sunroof to let some of the heat blow out. It helps to keep the cargo cover pulled over the area in the back too, less space to cool.
It would be nice though if Jeep would have added rear vents with fan control for the folks stuck in the back. All in all I stay cool though.

Flooding was today's JGC challenge in Phoenix . Fish swimming down neighborhood streets and people fishing from their driveways.
