Chevyboy, I'm talking about WC. We were supposed to build it, WD and WK. It got canned. Replacement for Chrysler Aspen. WS as we all know is the Grand Waggy.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It sounds like its Hill Descent Control without the hill. Probably for use over obstacles with a steadier throttle.

Yeah... Hill Decent control... but... not.

Not quite sure where I'd ever use this...

Curious about more details and such.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Those fellas must not go wheeling very often.... what we want is a locker or at a minimum bring back the electric front LSD. Then reduce weight!

Volkswagen has implemented a fuel filler that contains two tabs that must be pressed by the larger diesel nozzle to allow for filling (TDIClub Forums - View Single Post - Filler neck). This can make for some frustrating fill ups, and some people have removed or altered them. While it is critical that a Diesel engine never have its fuel system contaminated with gasoline, the VW HPFPs on their Jettas and Golfs have had several failures possibly due to poor lubrication from misfueling or low quality diesel. I'll be interested in seeing Jeep's solution as well. Maybe they'll rely on owner awareness and responsibility, but that would take a lot of faith.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I drive a diesel and a gasoline car and Inever mixed up the pumps although I change the cars a lot. Not sure whether this really is an issue. Not everything needs to be idiot proof ;-) .

You're in Germany.

This is the USA we're talking about here.

Diesel isn't really popular.

And to top it all off, Americans can be stupid.

Some vehicle owners don't even know their oil is supposed to be changed.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Marlon, relax!

Although diesel is very popular in Germany, here are people as well fuleing up with gas instead of diesel. This might be a littlebit more easy, since diesel fuel is due to its popularity just another nozzle at the common fuel pumps.

...so, stupid people here as well!

Happy Day

Achim
