No kidding. I already called the dealer and told him to place my order for the Blown Apache Alpine Grand Cherokee!

Thanks for the explanation of info Chevyboy. Some is obvious, but when anonymity of the internet exists, we think you can give us info before anyone else, since you're working there. AND WE DO WANT YOU TO KEEP WORKING THERE.
I know for a fact, the info I receive on here is months ahead of info the dealership gets. The GM is always telling me, "I'll have to look into that" as he hasn't heard these things.
So, I apologize for prying or begging for more info ahead of time. We do appreciate your participation.

OK. That's why I thought you mentioned it was at Roseville Chrysler.
Thanks for the clarification on that tidbit of information.

It's mentioned in Milous's first post. Although it isn't specified if it's across all models.

That's news to me.

We know that the performance pages are SRT only - but the 7" display should be available on select non-SRTs as well..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

We are talking about THIS, right?



New 7-inch Vehicle Information Center

Filling the gauge cluster in front of the driver is an available 7-inch, color, premium vehicle information screen, featuring a new customizable function that enables customers to personalize information inside the instrument cluster. Similar to the premium Uconnect Systems, select 7-inch instrument cluster background screens are branded with a Jeep theme. Jeep’s new information display is designed to visually communicate information, using graphics and text, quickly and easily.

The vehicle information display offers drivers a wide range of customization options, from a basic digital speed read out to specific vehicle status information. Operation of the display is clearly communicated to users with easy-to-understand icons and instructions. Using buttons on the steering wheel, drivers can customize the screen with as much or as little information as they desire. The system is intuitive and can be arranged for a variety of views. Up to three analog vehicle status gauges can be added to the display. The main screens found inside the instrument cluster menu are: digital speed, vehicle information and fuel economy, trip A information, trip B information, trailer-tow information, audio, stored messages and screen customization. Additionally, the four corners of the display can be customized to show information at a glance, including current fuel economy, outside temperature, time and compass direction.


http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_2014_features.htm

Not offering this feature on Limited, Overland and Summit-models would be huge let-down. Even the Dodge Dart has it (right?) - and virtually any vehicle in this class has some sort of integrated digital display.

so where is it then? Last post and previous information says it's between the speedo and tach cluster?

It's indeed between the speedo (to its left) and fuel-gauge (to its right).

Here's a spy-shot that can be compared to the image I posted before. Pay close attention to the display of the exterior temp (identical position, top right corner of the screen) and the part at the center left of the screen where you can switch through the displays (also identical style/position, white up/down arrows).

It IS between the speedo and tach.. The interior layout however doesn't resemble a Touareg in any way, as you implied. I've never sat in a Touareg, but what you supplied looks nothing like a '14 GC is all I was saying.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

There is a link at the bottom of the page for wk2leeps.

Under new for 2014 GC it has;

"New: All-new instrument cluster with 7" color premium vehicle information screen"


I don't know how reliable the info is.
