True, but post #1 also states order banks open December 5th (tentative). I just thought it was interesting that some are now stating order banks for the CRD's won't open until January or later. As I'm going to be ordering one, I thought others may like to know as well so we don't get our hopes up of ordering one on December 5th. I've seen a few people ask if there will be a different date.

Other than that, thank you very much for all the information here. You guys make everyone feel like an "insider", and I'm appreciative. I can't wait to get my hands on this vehicle.

Does that apply only to US Diesels or ALL diesels?

Old el'Paso,

behave properly with that what you write!

Back to my question... do you know something about the availability of the headliner in suede - yes or no?

I'm sure you dont!

It does make sense that order banks for the CRD would open later, based on the later production start. In the past it has been hit and miss, sometimes the banks will open and some models/trim levels will available to order, while others will be orderable but "late availability". So far I have not been able to confirm/re-confirm exact dates the banks will open, and if they will be staggered for different trim levels, export models etc. Inside info varies between different sources.

Thanks Milous, I just didn't know whether RA4 is any different to what you get in a Chrysler 300 and I understood from one of your earlier posts that the GC would get a system which is one generation beyond what you get in the 300.

The 300 and other Chrysler models will also be getting the new 2nd gen 8.4 radios in the 2014 model year.

Wow. This was one heck of an early pilot.

But here goes the new steering wheel:

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So will all the models have the paddle shifters?

Marlon, Have they done any NON-SRT pilots yet (if you can confirm)?

Is this just the new SRT steering wheel or can we expect something similar on regular models? I did like the old one but have no particular opinion on the new one.
