Re: Stopped procrastinating and did it!

All, I am not sure if this is posted elsewhere, but thinking about moving to a 2013 MY14. (latest shape?) What were the changes if any for build years 2014 and 2015? Anything significant? I notice the badge says CRD rathe than the new ECODIESEL on later Overlands but otherwise cant tell them apart. Cheers.

Re: Stopped procrastinating and did it!

For MY-MY15 there weren’t many changes, see the US list here - 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes
The CRD to Ecodiesel badge occurred for MY14 from about August 2013 builds on.

The Uconnect unit is different, it has different firmware to MY14s, DAB is standard. Apart from that, I don’t think there was much of anything.

MY16 has more changes - 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes But Aus spec changes are unknown at this stage.

Re: Stopped procrastinating and did it!

The steering wheel controls click more loudly on my "mid/late" MY14 compared with the "very early, 13 built" MY14 I had. I don't like the newer ones at all. ACC stops the car and resumes if not held stationary for more than a handful of seconds. I rarely take advantage of this. There are a couple less recalls for the late, but unless the previous owner is like me they should all have been done.

I can't think of anything else right now, but I'll keep it on the backburner.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: Stopped procrastinating and did it!

Its generally thought the pre Sept 2013 builds are more buggy than the post Sept 2013 builds for the MY14. Apparently there were some changes made to electronics and some other bits then.

Re: Stopped procrastinating and did it!

So I've decided to continue to procrastinate. My broker has convinced me to extend my lease for another 6 months while the MY16 is still an unknown quantity. See you in the new year.....

Hi Guys,
Might be in a different thread, but do all 2014's come with that bronze/copper hue around the door handle trim, gearstick surround and centre console surround, steering wheel trim etc? Not sure about it as it looks out of place compared to the 2012 brushed aluminium. Cheers.

Re: Stopped procrastinating and did it!

Yes, and I agree it's not the best Glenn. That said I probably don't notice it so much now, whereas initially it really bugged me...
