So it's basically the 2014 model year?

Correct, none of the 2013 Grand Cherokee or Durango models will have the 8-spd transmission.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Great... I've been waiting soooo long already. I figured I could live w/o the new nav, center column, etc... if I could get the tranny.

Dilemma

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The question still is when the first 2014 model will come out. Milous had hinted that the CRD/8speed/2014refresh might be released earlier than the rest of the lineup... for example, in March 2013.... can't get the secrets out of him yet though

Yes, 2014 model year for the 8-spd. Kinda strange that at Jefferson North next year you'll see a 2014 CRD Jeep rolling down the line, preceded or followed by a 2013 model...

HA! I knew it. Damnit Milous, why do you have to tease us like that. Can't you just confirm the current rumors straight out?

Will we see the CRD/8-speed be released in early 2013 with the 2014 changes?!?!

God I hope that's the plan!

A while back you mentioned "break out the champagne" news regarding the CRD, and said to check back over the next few weeks for confirmation... should I still be checking back or should I assume you just made the "confirmation"?

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So does that mean the 2014 CRD will have all the other changes (nav system etc) before the rest of the lineup moves to MY2014? It seems odd/complicated that they will be building refreshed and non refreshed vehicles on the same line at the same time.

From all the hints Milous has given, this seems to be absolutely true. I am hoping that he will confirm all of this shortly with the next post in this topic

Well, stranger things have happened. I can confirm however, that next year, Jefferson North will indeed be building "refreshed" and "non refreshed" vehicles at the same time...
