Agree, Chrysler may produce a comparatively quality product in the U.S. Market, but they've got work to do here in Australia!

Damn lot of coin!

Why should the Jeep be any different to a normal vehicle? Just skin the rotors and bang in some new pads, provided that the rotor thickness is in spec after machining.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

He has a SRT, they have the Brembos. which hurt your wallet.

Blakey, see this thread - Front wheels get dusty and dirty very easily.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

"With unique bumpers at both ends, the Trail Hawk increases its off-road ability over the regular Cherokee as departure angle and approach angle are a handy 32.2 degrees and 29.9 degrees respectively, with ground clearance hiked to 221mm.* These numbers are with the diff lock set on maximum."

Riiiiight....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

They messed up on the towing info as well.....

"Towing has always been a Range Rover tour de force too, and this model has a 3500kg rating - the highest of the three contenders".

I wouldn't use "They". It's blunder from the writer of the article.
