Webber, are your hopes rising again of a possible Summit?

Any thoughts ?
the SRT will drink like a sailor but loads of fun the MY13 will take a hit $ when the MY14 comes out however.

CRD Overland MY14 ? is a good choice for towing and daily drive.. will be slower than an SRT however but an effortless drive with 569NM of torque 0-100 is about 7.8sec

Why not go all out and get the MY14 SRT ?

Beggsy, If your on the low side of 40 I can see you leaning towards the SRT. Over that and maybe the Overland. To. me the Overland with the extra off road selections you can choose on that dial is preferable. What the hell can you do with that "launch" button other than lose your licence. I prefer the look of the SRT to the Overland. The Summit would have given SRT a better run for your money "looks" wise but that aint going to happen either (unless Milous can help out). I'd hang out for the MY14 though whether that be an SRT or an Overland. Good luck with whatever way you choose.

Yes Mark, they did "flicker up" for a moment but it's just not going to happen.
What I can't understand is why they have brought a Summit over. It would be most unfair to deliberately hold off and allow potential Summit buyers to take possession of Overlands and then announce that they will introduce the Summit. This should have been sorted out a long time ago. Most unfortunate. And the other thing, why is Chysler so secretive. All these cars on the way and they are still not announcing anything. That is unfortunate AND a disappointing way to treat their patient Jeep supporters. We lost JKAU because of this mess.

After several frustrating attempts to get to his destination, by virtually going in circles, he gives up and gets out of his car, at the same time wondering how the paintwork changed from white to brown.
....and allypally's wit should not go unrecognised. We need a bit of humour to help with the long wait. Well done.

Hi Webber, appreciate the input, damn , just turned 46 .... Have driven the SRT 8 my 13 and think that you're right, the license would be under threat, so Milous..... Any diesel summits in that batch ?

That shipment will arrive in Melbourne on 21st June. Possibly some will be offloaded in Brisbane on 16th June, and Port Kembla on 18th June.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I have had no luck getting an E Number from my dealer as yet, they are still 'estimating' I will get my MY14 Overland in June (this year) - so, mine must be on the boat!!

Not sure I believe them!!
