Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Just returned from USA, and had a good look at the 14s. NICE ! You will not be disappointed.
Purchased a Mustang in Texas, drove up to the Jeep dealer, and ordered all the accessories I wanted, they had them in the Mustang next day (FREE freight to Oz) Only wish our dealers here had service like that, these parts had to be ordered in from 500km away.
Also noteworthy, I ordered my Limited CRD 10 th April (this year ! )
My E number came thru whilst I was away. I arrived home, tracked my car, and found it is now in Curtis Bay MD, awaiting a ship . It IS starting to happen folks.
We have a great mate in Milous, in fact, I reckon he is a Jeep God (well, it rhymes with Greek God) Seriously, he really is doing a fantastic job for us.
Thanks Mate.

Webber,

Great to catch up with you and have a chat.

If you have time have a look at this You Tube clip on the Overland, very similar to what you will get.

This is also a very good clip if you have a look.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I had an interesting visit to my dealer over the weekend whilst waiting for my MY14 ordered November last. My deal was done thru a broker and this was my first visit.

A bright young salesman pounced as I was looking over a MY13 CRD, I lamented the loss of the flipper glass on the MY14 to which the salesman assured me I was wrong, the flipper is an option he said. After quite a discussion on this and other issues, he still held his ground and justified his stand on the fact that his mum was the dealer principal and would certainly know more than Jeepgarage!

As we parted company I informed him I had paid a deposit on the MY14 with his mum and enquired what sort of compensation might I expect if my Jeep arrives without the flipper!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Thanks iboughtajeep, under the options category it had a lot of items that I thought were standard on the Aussie spec , things like the tyre pressure sensors, quadra drive, the tow prep stuff etc. can you let me know whether these things were all part of the std Aussie build..... Getting confused ??

Pretty sure they are standard, as i didn't pay for them as options. I have bought sight unseen, but with an out clause in my contract if it doesn't have a minimum spec as the MY13. Basically, I wanted a minimum MY13, if it comes with more as standard, then thats a bonus. The overland is pretty well equipped with everything standard. Only thing i would have liked was the HDD for the stereo, but its got an SD card, i can live with that in its place.

Does anyone know if the tow bar on a 14 will be the same as a 13?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

G'day Beggsy,

On my build sheet "Tire Pressure Monitoring Display" is listed under "Standard Equipment". Given that I ordered a Laredo, I'd say this is offered as standard across the board. Quadra-Drive II on the other hand, is definitely an option. It's included in the Off-Road Adventure II Pack... I believe that "towing prep" gear is also optional equipment.

Hey, iboughtajeep..

Got my build sheet today and I was wondering did you order yours with Quadra-Drive? As I have on order a MY14 Overland 3.6L and the spec sheet says it comes with the lower Quadra-Trac II....

Just wondering if CRD's get the better system or if you ordered yours with it... Apart from that and other CRD things like DPF the lists are the same.. My GC will never see hard tracks so it doesn't bother me.. Have a modified JK for that.. However found it interesting to know if the extra money for the CRD also means you get a free upgrade on the rear diff...

Also noticed on both yours and mine says the mirrors are body colored not chrome like the pics of USA spec GC's..

Josh.

Josephr,
Hello again, appreciated your call, thankyou.
Second video clip gives excellent internal look of the light beige/frost. Would have loved the Summit but at the end of the day 95% of the time you are looking at your car from the inside not the outside, and from the inside a Summit and an Overland are virtually identical except you can only get the light upholstery in the Overland which is my preferred colour. The light colours really show off the styling, design, leather, etc of which most is lost in the black or deep brown so I have rationalised that it is an Overland for me and if Jeep continues on this path of improvement my next car will be a "full blown, fully loaded" Summit probably around 2016/17. In the meantime this vehicle is really going to "shake up" the competition. We are going to see a lot of these on the road as the competitor sales shrink. It will be interesting to watch how Jeeps competitors respond to this challenge. Thankyou again.
