Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Hi Guys,

I am Jimbo from south Louisiana. I have been looking around the Jeep site for a couple of months to see how the new ECODiesels were performing. I was looking to get a new ram 1500 ECODiesel when they come out. Well the reviews you wrote and the 10/10 powertrain ratings won me over. I realized that the JGC fit my needs better than the pickup. I purchased a new JGC ECODiesel last week. As follows:

Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4 X 2
Maximum Steel Metallic
ECODiesel 3.0
Luxury Group II
Trailer Tow Group IV
Uconnect 8.4AN
20" Wheels

The JGC drives great. It is solid, rattle free and fit and finish are great. Midway through the first tank of diesel it is 28.0 MPG on an equal mix of city, country and interstate driving. More later

Jimbo

YES! Finally took delivery last night. We didn't get out of the dealership until 9pm so I haven't had a chance to set much up but it was an amazing drive home.

I concur. I used to hate driving. Now I can't wait. Even though my wife's Jetta TDI gets better mileage, I'd rather take the Jeep. It is just so much nicer to drive.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Should be an interesting start to a new car, they are talking about up to a foot of snow here on Thursday. I've read a bunch of complaints about the stock tires in snow, but with no chance to get Cooper A/T3s installed before the snow I will have to make do.

I'm looking forward to it! According to AccuWeather, they shifted the 12-18 band of snow slightly West, which now includes my area... we'll see how close they are. I drove back from Philly Sunday night and I had a TON of wheel-well buildup. Tires were rubbing pretty bad . Not a pleasant odor - so when I stopped I removed as much as I could.

Enjoy and glad you have your hands on it.
I have had mine 1 week and have a 1000 miles on it. Only one small issue was alignment being off.
Dealer in Fort Walton Beach took care of it no problem and now tracks perfect.
I am very happy with the ride as you are too...

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I just joined the group. I just ordered 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited ecodiesel, maximum steel, black interior, 8.4, tow package. I was originally going to wait for the Ram 1500 ecodiesel and was torn between the 2 vehicles. So after much debate I went with the Grand Cherokee. It is probably a better fit for me anyway and fits in my garage. I can't wait until the middle of March to pick it up. Thanks to this forum I now know what to look for when I inspect it.
