Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

OK so another week has almost gone by and no news on the "Albatross Edition". Do i need to subscribe to a special inside forum to know whats going on with the AE?

I went and tried a CTS-V Wagon today to see if i could do it. It would be about the same price. NO CAN DO!!! Gonna wait to order a 2013 white JGC SRT8. Will order it the 1st of July......

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

For me the 8 speed (which on the the other vehicles it has been fitted to has proven to be a good box) coupled with the Diesel sounds to be an ideal match. Something to look forward to.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That is assuming they can get the extra planetary to handle 406 lb-ft of torque. Agree a diesel with a (relatively) narrow torque band can use it more than the very wide band of the 6 but an willing to bet the 6 gets it first.

My current tank is running over 21 mpg in mixed driving with the a/c on and have no lack of acceleration (speed is really deceptive, really easy to get going too fast in a short distance). OTOH am sure the ECM program has a bit more tuning it can do, IMNSHO the IAT is running about 20F higher than I like and starting further up the PV curve does not help. Also suspect there are a few more % in the cdA that can be cut, possibly with a slightly lowered 2wd Laredo "Attitude" edition.

Finally agree the 8 spd probably won't help highway cruise in top BUT neither the EPA City or Highway cycles spend long at any one speed. A V-6 with a 3.47 final and .64 8th could manage the acceleration parts with less throttle (injector pulse width) than the current 5 spd with 3.09 - and would have the same revs at 70. A bit peakier cam would not hurt either.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Oh, and for the guys who don't like the chrome rear trim, idk if it's been stated here, or somewhere else, but you can order the rear "Jeep" trim for an Altitude (its blacked out) as a replacement/substitute on your SRT (or otherwise) now. Looks pretty cool with blacked out tailgate trim to match the lower rear fascia. No need to sand and repaint it yourself and potentially screw it up. Debadging it is a different story. (Which is kinda silly to me, bc it's still a Jeep, but whatever.. To each his own! )

Hey Milous,

I just wanted to check in to see if you heard anything about the release date of the 2013 Summit. If the 2014's start production in January, I'm wondering if it's worth it to wait the 5 or 6 months for that.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Has anyone heard anything about a "jeep grand Cherokee S limited"? I have seen a few posts out on the web about this car... Although they have said it will only Come in diesel (so maybe only overseas version?). This is supposedly a limited with a diesel and the carbon fiber trim as well as sport seats from the srt8. Maybe this will be a 2014 thing?

No word yet on the release date, doesn't even show in the system yet. I would wait for a 2014...
