Found a 2013 being delivered to Colorado. It's a Brilliant Black 5.7L V8 Hemi 6 speed Laredo X with Navigation and a gray interior. $39,810 MSRP.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Anyone know if the 20" wheel option now available on Laredo is the same design as the one used on the Overland?

Bright White Clear Coat will be exclusive to the AE package; you will not be able to order this color for non-AE SRT models.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Does anyone know if there will be any incentives or rebates for a '13 Overland? If so when could they be expected?

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Now are the Alpine and Vapor editions related at all to the AE model ?

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The Alpine is the AE model.. It looks nice, and the new wheels should win over some of the critics. (Which will be/are an option for non-AE '13 SRTs.) But now that pics are out, I'll go ahead and say, personally, I think they screwed up with the front grille. It should've had the white inserts like the "One lap" model did. The black roof is a coin flip issue, but this grille really takes away from it. Of course the lil inserts can be repainted, but imo, for an extra $3k, you shouldn't have to do that. Idk.. Maybe it's just me.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hey all,
Interesting thread. I'm hoping to trade-in or sell my '02 Limited for a more modern model. Debating between a used '11 Limited (May build), new '12 Limited or Laredo X, or, given the discussion here, waiting for the '14 model year. Would you steer clear of '11 models, given the first year of the new design?

Hoping someone could steer me in the right direction. Not looking for a performance beast, just a dependable SUV for winter driving, trips, etc. Loved my '02 -- but feels like it's time to update. Want to make a wise decision when spending this kind of money.

Thanks!

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Too many problems with the 2011s. I would get a 2012 with an August build or newer, which I did.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Wait for the '14. The ZF 8 speed should be a great upgrade to an otherwise outstanding vehicle. I've been driving the Pentastar/5 speed the past 10 months and the adaptable transmission is just adequate. Definitely not anything close to the 7 speed in my FX35. Upshifts too quickly and it's often very stubborn about downshifts. Fortunately the engine is great, smoother than the Infiniti.

That's assuming they program the 8-speed well. I may be wrong but from what I gather the 5-speed transmission itself is fine, but currently (perhaps a software update will come out that improves things) the shift points / programming isn't optimal, at least not in "Auto" mode.
