Thanks much for the updates gentlemen.
Due to the popularity of the Trailhawk edition I would assume that it (or a similar model) will be returning for the 2014 model year.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Trailhawks are everywhere!

They have finally made a GC of this generation that I would buy.

Too bad I can't afford it.

Where? I've never seen them? Were they only shipped to certain regions? I'm in Omaha, Nebraska and I see multiple new Grand Cherokees every day and I've never seen a Trailhawk on the street or on any dealer lots or in any dealers inventory online.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Well can you give us a chance to ship them out?

I believe they started production only within the last few weeks.

They're everywhere... at work.

Update 11/7/2012 - Trailhawk order banks have been re-opened for a short period of time...

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I just read the motortrend December 2012 article on the 2013 SUV of the year and the Jeep Grand Cherokee wasn't even included in the contender lineup. Does anyone have a speculation as to why not?
The list was the Acura RDX Audi Allroad Ford Escape Honda CRV Hyundai Santa Fe Sport Infiniti Jx Mazda CX 5 Mercedes GL and GLK Nissan Pathfinder and the Subaru XV Crosstrek.

The winner was the Mercedes GL. Price as tested was $87500 $94265 and $108310.
Holy moly Rocky!

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That was indeed a strange article. They all seem like CUVs except the Merc. I wonder what the entry criteria were?

That Pathfinder sure has been tweaked hasn't it?

Also, Toyota has really taken a beating lately in the SUV market.

Contenders have to be all new for the model year or significantly revised. Minor refreshes don't count. The Jeep was a contender in 2011 and most likely won't contend again until the new model comes out in 2016-2017.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Whoa... Trailhawk with Hemi/Tow, Sunroof, Power Liftgate, and Nav., costs as much as an Overland with Hemi/Tow.

Anodized silver applique. What does that look like? Is it refractive or show depth or something?

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

for the exterior instead of the chrome applique its a silver applique and for the interior its the silver trim instead of the dark wood trim or lithograph whatever they call it in the laredo's lol
