Don't discount the diesel for performance, Marty. I recently blew off an SS Bogan Bus in the 0 to 90 stakes.

Are you suggesting that I was using it wr... wr... wr... not as designed?




I'll give it a whirl.

Cheers,

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I do the same daily commute to work, which consist of about 10km at 60km/h, 30km in peak hours freeway crawling traffic and about 60km at about 100km/h. Been filling BP Ultimate from 2 different servos. Do not do any towing.

Last 3 tanks were:
Distance traveled: 1085km Fuel fill: 85.4L Actual usage: 7.87L/100kms
Distance traveled: 1130km Fuel fill: 86.8L Actual usage: 7.68L/100kms
Distance traveled: 1145km Fuel fill: 87.2L Actual usage: 7.62L/100kms

For the past 3 tanks the on-board average has been showing 6.9-7.3L/100km. So its about 0.5L lower than actual consumption.

I don't exactly baby it either so pretty chuffed so far with the economy considering the amount of power available on tap

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Yeah the tyre upsize really hurts it. I was quite surprised, though it's not as bad on the open road. Unfortunately I prefer to tow the caravan with the stiffer LTs... so the 20" HTs are doing much more shed time even between trips. It's not a terrible job swapping them... just easy to put off for another day.

Yes there's no doubting the power of the Diesel Jarse, and I really had my heart set on it, but that bloody DPF thing worries me I'm looking for reliability first & foremost.

Anyhow I guess I'm still on the fence regarding Diesel v Petrol. Realistically, after just buying the Wife a KL Cherokee, I probably won't be in the position to buy a Grand Cherokee until the new Model (2017?) comes out anyway. Here's hoping that by then that the current DPF issue will be well and truly a thing of the past.

Until then I'll continue to lurk around here to learn more and enjoy all the Grand Cherokee comments from you blokes

The pet store was selling monkeys for 5˘ a piece. I thought that odd since they were normally a couple thousand each. I decided not to look a gift horse in the mouth. I bought 200. I like monkeys.
I took my 200 monkeys home. I have a big car. I let one drive. His name was Sigmund. He was retarded. In fact, none of them were really bright. They kept punching themselves in their genitals. I laughed. Then they punched my genitals. I stopped laughing.
I herded them into my room. They didn't adapt very well to their new environment. They would screech, hurl themselves off of the couch at high speeds and slam into the wall. Although humorous at first, the spectacle lost its novelty halfway into its third hour.
Two hours later I found out why all the monkeys were so inexpensive: they all died. No apparent reason. They all just sorta' dropped dead. Kinda' like when you buy a goldfish and it dies five hours later. Damn cheap monkeys.
I didn't know what to do. There were 200 dead monkeys lying all over my room, on the bed, in the dresser, hanging from my bookcase. It looked like I had 200 throw rugs.
I tried to flush one down the toilet. It didn't work. It got stuck. Then I had one dead, wet monkey and 199 dead, dry monkeys.
I tried pretending that they were just stuffed animals. That worked for a while, that is until they began to decompose. It started to smell real bad.
I had to pee but there was a dead monkey in the toilet and I didn't want to call the plumber. I was embarrassed.
I tried to slow down the decomposition by freezing them. Unfortunately there was only enough room for two monkeys at a time so I had to change them every 30 seconds. I also had to eat all the food in the freezer so it didn't all go bad.
I tried burning them. Little did I know my bed was flammable. I had to extinguish the fire.
Then I had one dead, wet monkey in my toilet, two dead, frozen monkeys in my freezer, and 197 dead, charred monkeys in a pile on my bed. The odor wasn't improving.
I became agitated at my inability to dispose of my monkeys and to use the bathroom. I severely beat one of my monkeys. I felt better.
I tried throwing them way but the garbage man said that the city wasn't allowed to dispose of charred primates. I told him that I had a wet one. He couldn't take that one either. I didn't bother asking about the frozen ones.
I finally arrived at a solution. I gave them out as Christmas gifts. My friends didn't know quite what to say. They pretended that they like them but I could tell they were lying. Ingrates. So I punched them in the genitals



Was that closer?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Off topic here a bit but this is one mean car. Got the looks and the growl.
Nightcrawler is an excellent movie, very creepy with a great car a central character.
The Dodge SRT Challenger.
Get to see the movie if you can. Loved it.

V6 Petrol gone from ~14L/100km to ~17 with tyre upsize =/ Looks way more bad-ass now though!

Swapped just in time for some rock-crawling, man the GC rocks!!! Zipped straight through a section where the friends V8 landcruiser was struggling =D

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Have any Aussie SRT owners had their brakes done yet?
Dealer told me today that when done the pads and rotors need to be replaced @ around $5k
Damn lot of coin!
