Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

One of the cons of a site like this is you can get a false impression that a vehicle is plagued with issues and problems because the few that do occur get an enormous amount of attention. I've seen this happen over and over again on motorcycles as well... I imagine it happens to all pieces of technology and equipment good enough to gather a passionate following.

Don't get scared by those highly publicized rare issues... DO however be aware and vigilant. Just don't get wrapped around an axle about it.

Doesn't mean it's not going to get any fatter. (Wider, longer, etc)

Just noticed you're selling the Dart. I'm asking the question: what the.....??? You see something coming down the line you like?

Oops. Decided NOT to sell it. Chrysler seriously messed up the Dart a few days after I ordered mine. It's not so customizable anymore. I guess they figured it was confusing consumers. I'm keeping it now... I'll never be able to get another one like it.

They need to make the GC's more customizable lol.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is the WL body shape any/much different to the 14's? Will some of the new ally/carbon bits be interchangeable?

EDIT: I don't even have my '14 yet and i'm looking at '17 parts lol!

AFAIK, the WL should start as MY17...

haha I understand your pain.. I have a MY12, so I'm interested in the WL MY17.

Like Marlon said about they could lengthen and widen the GC.... I hope they don't. The current GC is the perfect size, plenty of leg room in the backseat and a nice roomy front for the driver and front passenger.

Cargo area could be a little bit bigger to compensate for the slopping hatch.
