Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Saw a GC Blackhawk on the road. Colour DCR. Much better looking if it wS in white, sharp contrast with black wheel and the back badge. Functions-wise, what r additions that regular GC doesn't have?

Yes - at least I couldn't see him on the road. Must have a headache though - the door had to be replaced because the intrusion bar was bent! Lucky it wasn't a truck I guess. Maybe it has some sort of progressive deformation, but it's a bit of a worry.

I didn't see this one until it was beside the car. It must have run out of the long grass which was right up to the bitumen.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Not intending to start a huge segue regarding it as there is a dedicated thread... just to sing its praise and raise local awareness... the new Customtronix Bronze software patch is extremely cool. Now my passenger can enter destinations on the move, and the SRT apps are a bit of fun.

I've also found automatic entry/exit is working, but I don't know if that's a function of the bundled software version, or the additions the hack includes.

Cheers,
Steve

2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I don't know anyone who would knowingly buy a vehicle that had been flooded. That opens massive potential for mechanical, electrical, or corrosion problems to anything that has been below the waterline.
With such a vehicle, anything submerged in water is basically worthless. I'd be reluctant to even buy the wheel nuts from such a vehicle

Thanks for posting! Looks good, in particular the silver package with the additional video inputs.

As far as price, did you just pay the listed price in Euros or did they work out a separate price for you in AUD?
