Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

2014 GC price increase? I believe this issue has been visited before, but what the heck, lets go there again! I was cruising the sites the other day, and noticed the Dodge Charger SE, (base model), if a customer wanted to upgrade from the Std. 5-speed auto, to the new 8-speed, it was an $1,100 option. I know, apples to oranges, but same tree! Just curious, with the new 8-speed, plus other new additions and changes, as to how Chrysler might handle this issue to avoid more than say a 300 to 500 dollar increase? Possibilty of moving some present Std. equipment to the option list? I would imagine Chrysler wants to get that hefty investment in tooling for the new Trasmission paid off sooner than later. Milous, I would love for you to offer your insightful comments/opinion on this. Thankyou.

2011 looks like this...

Let's see if any of you can figure this out.

I'll give you a clue... It's a slight change of styling.
Something to do with the grill?

Hopefully not like this.

That is supposedly a rendering of the new jeep Liberty. I only put it up there cause the "tibit" Marlon gave made me think of a change in styling to the grill.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The huge chrome "Grand Cherokee" trim piece on the tailgate between the taillights won't be there on the 2014. Words will embossed on tailgate or something like that.

That huge chrome piece is called a Light Bar and the Light Bar is still there. It can't, and isn't going anywhere. And it says "Jeep" ... not "Grand Cherokee".

And so far, nobody has guessed correctly.

Well, most of us are aware that the grill will be changing to a more narrow profile aligning more with the shape of the headlights. So, what he's talking about probably isn't the grill/front end stuff. I'll have to think about it.

As long as it doesn't have to do with just the CRD and off-roading I think we'll guess it pretty soon!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

More narrow shape?

Uh.......

I've never compared the two side by side but I can't say I agree with that. If it IS narrower, it isn't much narrower, which wouldn't make much sense because of cooling requirements. The grille size isn't going to get any smaller, if anything, it would grow.

Has the shape of the light bar changed from the 2011/2012/2013 to the 2014?-
