2014 GC Sport Mode

I've been trying to research this and I haven't really found anything online. What does sport mode do when you switch to it? The only thing I've really noticed is that the economy mode turns off and that's about it.

re: 2014 GC Sport Mode

Holds the lower gears longer for more torque.
Turning eco off has the same effect, but to a much lesser degree.
If you have QuadrLift suspension, it also lowers the vehicle 1/2".

Re: 2014 GC Sport Mode

Ok, also does it disable traction or stability control (or something like that)?

Re: 2014 GC Sport Mode

Yes, Owner's Manual explains it. pp 414-415. No, none of the nannies are disabled.

Re: 2014 GC Sport Mode

It also will not shift into the final gear on the highway. Mine drives totally different in the Sport mode. I love it in the mountains. Coming down steep slopes I don't have to hardly use any breaking as it downshifts more often.

True, let somebody else go through the trouble of spoon feeding you ... just sayin'.

But I guess if you couldn't find it in the half hour it took to get your first answer ... maybe looking it up would be a lot of trouble.

I have been looking for a while now and I thought I might as we'll ask because someone knew the answer.

Just yankin' your chain.

But it is always good to double check anyway. In a very recent thread he first person to respond gave a totally wrong answer.

In spite of what the blonde says in the State Farm commercial, they can say it on the internet, even if it's not true.

Re: 2014 GC Sport Mode

In my 2014 Hemi, I notice while in sport mode the exhaust sounds much more aggressive. This is all from within the cabin, but was wondering if anyone else noticed this?

Re: 2014 GC Sport Mode

On the 2011 to 13 GCs Sport mode provides reduced ESP and the torque split can be up to 80% to the rear wheels. For 2014 Sport mode is "Available in 4HI, performance based tuning for RWD feel, reduces traction control"

Info from wk2jeeps.com

Not sure of how much the torque split can vary for 2014 and "what performance based tuning is" since no further info was provided.
