No, it changes your tyre type down to Kumho 18" Philip per my pic.

Well it changes down to 18 and I assumed Michelin but based on what SJandL wrote, I guess not. SJandL, I assume from your post that you ordered ORAII?

Yes. Overland with ORAII. We expected Michelins but seeing it today, discovered Kumho. Noticed that the Laredo (without ORAII) at the dealership had Michelins and identical rims to our Overland.

Its a purely personal thing but I just feel it looks more prestigious than black, and the chocolate brown trim is really good. With respect to the light upholstery I would suspect if you have kids may be a problem.
This is why I thought that black was a must, and quite frankly it still may go that way, especially if it is a lot quicker to supply.
Looks far better, but what I do know, based on the leather products we sell, I can 100% guarantee, that any colour but black will show wear.
Luckily the Limited has a black floor, and not the lighter colours like the Overland.
We have a gravel driveway, and horse paddocks, that dirt always finds it way in.
It's hard, the lighter colour looks far nicer, but I know it is not the smart practical choice for us.
If we had a less physical out doorsy existence then no issue.
Decisions decisions.
Now the misses is saying she would be happy with a Laredo, and that of course would have to be black interior as a light fabric interior would be a disaster for us.

Still prefer the 18" wheels on the Laredo though to the Limiteds 20".
The standard Laredo's all had Michelins.

Does anybodyknow, Is it the latitude tour hp on the Laredo? It's the only tyre on their website that they sat matches a laredo.
The overland I am looking at getting they have agreed to swap it for Laredo tyres, so I am gathering I get the 18" Michelin at no cost to me.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Forgot to say, got told today that the official launch day is July 6th.
The dealer had to pull all of its ads.

Yeah, he said, "the day we get pricing is the day we can sell", so it makes no difference to them.
He said they (Jeep Aus) sell about 200 GCs a month in Sydney, and they had 130 available in May.
They sold their last 3 MY13s last weekend and received the MY14 on Thursday.

I asked about having the Laredos wheels fitted to the Limiteds, and he said at this stage he has no idea if that is possible, still too much to see what is happening. Can't see why it couldn't happen.
