Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Foglight layout? Exhaust ports?

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.

OK. I thought that's what everyone was complaining about before regarding the "smiley face" grill/front end. How does the explorer and some of the range rovers have a smaller grill area? Are they ramping air up from underneath to cool the radiator?

Please advise thank you!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Mious, any chance the 2014 will have fuel saving grill shutters such as those on the 2013 ram 1500? Beyond electric steering are there any other fuel saving tibits?

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

I'll give you a clue... It's a slight change of styling.
How about the shape of the top of the front seats...this would possibly accomodate the video screen option (?)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Can we say if the change is on the inside of the vehicle?

Different shape/location of front indicator lights?

Hope it's not the smile on the driver's face.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Placing the fog lights that high almost defeats the purpose of it, in my opinion. The goal is to keep the light low, to essentially "cut" through the fog.

HA! If this pic is correct, I was right as far as the grill is more narrow/shorter! HA HA HA HA HA HA

The 7 slots don't look narrower. It does look shorter. 2011/'12/'13 Grill looks better. I do like the shape of the inner mesh being honeycomb looking like the SRT though.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Now that I think of it the person that took that picture usually gets more than one shot of every car that goes by. Even more since there's usually 2-3 of them working various spots of the road. We'd have to dig through the last week or two worth of pictures but there may be more. That was posted as part of the weekly highlights yesterday. http://killboy.photoreflect.com/store/store.aspx
