2014 Grand Cherokee - hopefully soon!

Hi All, I recently joined this forum to get more information on the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I have never owned a Jeep, Chrysler or Fiat but am excited to put in an order for the Grand Cherokee to pull my R-Pod 172 (camper trailer). I currently use my 2011 Subaru Outback Limited 3.6R which has plenty of power but seems too light at highway speeds. I am looking to get a heavier tow vehicle with a factory tow set-up. Trying to decide between the Overland or the Limited. I had wanted the diesel but can't see spending the extra money for 3 mpg over the V-6 since my trailer is only about 2500 pounds.

Thank you for your words of welcome. I am now thinking of the bigger engine for the trailer towing...too many decisions!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - hopefully soon!

After too much research, I've decided I will wait for the diesel. I think for towing the camper in altitude, this should work best! Also, the torque is amazing! Thank all of you above for your welcome notes.
