Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You may not be able to answer, but have you seen anything that's specific to the diesel exterior that's different...besides the new eco-diesel badge? I heard they are getting lockers and sway bar disconnects, lifted with oversized wheels and 33" mudders because the tidbit earlier said it was good for diesel and off road!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

No info on the '14 CRDs yet, outside of what Milous has posted. And I still haven't seen any CRD pilots. I have however begun to see more and more '14 production ready parts coming in, which leads me to believe that everything is on schedule. At least structurally. Seems they're happy with the adjustments made to the bodies for '14, and are ready to run 'em, but the line still needs to be prepped for it in many areas.

But the lack of diesel '14 stuff right now, has me thinking that might be something not available right at launch. But we'll see, and I'll let y'all know when I do.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

damn, I was hoping you saw some solid DANA 60's w/ lockers, mudders, lift kits, and that new "dial, knob, switch" we are supposed to get come in, with badges that say...OFF-ROAD DIESEL...MOFO! I kid, I kid. Keep up the good work.
Oh, not only does my wife benefit the plant, but our sales lady loves to see me walk in, usually means she gets a sale...and my wife has her cell #...not good for me, she knows what I'm buying(actually what the wife wants), before I do. Oh well, women, can't live with 'em, can't kill 'em

Outside of the badge, nothing that I am aware of. But it's certainly possible that somewhere along the '14 model year they could introduce a special edition diesel model (Trailhawk?). All of the special edition 2013 models (Alpine, Altitude, Trailhawk, Vapor) have been extremely popular and very well received. That pretty much assures that some (or all) of these models will return, as well as some new variants.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

There will be some enhancement (programming) tweaks on the '14 transfer cases (for QTII I believe, still checking), and in fact some of these will be implemented as a running change on the last of the 2013 models (earlier models will be able to be flashed as well).

Without answering the question, why would there be anything different?

The shape is basically the same. Minor changes to front, rear and interior.

HMMMM...that's interesting. When during the model year in 2013 did they come out with the special edition models? Was it right away or was it a few months in?

Interesting. Would be great to see some special edition model based on the Overland.

I did some checking and the special edition models came out in mid-late summer from what I could determine. Since the 14s are coming out earlier than usual, that would probably mean that any special edition could possibly come out as early as June or earlier. That's just a guess.

Throw out some ideas of what "special editions" you'd like to see for the 14s.
