Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If the major difference is a clear taillight lens & LEDs, new wheels, & a body colored grille then changeover will be trivial & can be done on a weekend. Do hope they make a visible instrument cluster.

I hope the taillight lens arent clear, I personally think they look a bit tacky.

Being that it's a refresh, and the fact that the GC is doing so well, I would expect that the exterior cosmetic changes will be minimal. I'm hoping that they will be upgrading the cluster with the new 7" EVIC screen but have not been able to confirm this yet. Overall, there will a lot of worthwhile changes and improvements on the 2014 models, many of which will not be easy to incorporate into prior models.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

7'' Evic sreen? Would that be the same as is the 2013 Ram? Generall if you look at the 2013 Ram there are a lot nice things that I wouldappreciate in the GC.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

FYI: The upcoming Dodge Dart (can't believe those words would ever be put together again) lists a 7-inch EVIC screen.
You can check it out on this page after clicking on the "Interior" tab:
http://www.dodge.com/en/2013/dart/

If you don't want to click over, here's what it says:
CLASS-EXCLUSIVE 7-INCH TFT RECONFIGURABLE DISPLAY
As the most technologically advanced car in its class, the Dodge Dart includes a number of class-exclusive features, including a premium 7-inch Thin Film Transistor (TFT) reconfigurable cluster display. Not only does the display deliver real-time information on performance, navigation and vehicle status, it truly comes alive with countless ways to reconfigure in full color and incredibly rich graphics never before seen on a compact car.


Also, the new Dart (ugh, still feels so wrong...) has an 8.4-inch screen on the center stack, too. You can see that on the same page, also under "Interior."
A friend of mine has an 8.4-inch center-stack screen in her Dodge Journey. IMHO, its graphics are MUCH better than on the center-stack screen in my Overland.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

As much as I love new technology. I think I'll hold off a couple of years on the new display. I don't want to be going in to the dealer to fix snags. With this kind of technology, it's not like I will be able to go to any garage.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

How times change, when Buick came out with a new model having a touchscreen in the dash with engine, economy, HVAC, media center, & nav most buyers said it was too complicated.

Of course that was in 1988.
