On the Overland, it's $2,195.

In Germany, the CRD is actually about $8K LESS than the HEMI - but the CRD is taxed a bit higher. However, Diesel is also a bit cheaper than regualar gas over there.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I had my heart set on the 2014 CRD, but now with the news it might not be available until late next year, I must re-consider the HEMI.

Can someone remind me again why the HEMI might be better than the CRD?

The thing that attracts me most to the CRD is the mpg, range, and towing capacity.

The Mayan calendar ends next month, and many ppl say the world will end. It must be true, bc they've made movies abt it! Right?.. (Wrong)

Fox News says... Well nevermind..

My point is, don't believe everything you hear. Milous has CONFIRMED that the '14 WK2 CRDs ARE indeed in pilot phase. And have been for sometime now. Which means they're only months away from being launched. Not 9-12 months, but more like 6-8 months. Trust me.. Again, this is not a full relaunch. This is a mid-cycle refresh. It didn't take that long to LAUNCH the WK2, so why would you believe it taking over a year for a refresh? If you want a CRD, wait for a CRD. Don't convince yourself to settle, bc the day one pulls up next to you at a light, you'll regret it.

Thanks guys thats encouraging -- I just got nervous after people started mentioning late 2013 and no one argued that fact. So glad to hear your optimism.

And your absolutlely right, I will regret it if I buy a HEMI and see a CRD pull up next to me.

The problem is I dont know if my current WJ will make it much longer, just passed 150k.

I think I can hack it until June at the latest... are my chances of a CRD by then better than 75%?

And lastly since you guys see and hear about these on a daily basis, do you personally think the CRD is the best choice? And dont give me that personal preference crap Usually there is an all around best value...

I know you can't take pictures but can you record the sound and then post an audio file?

150k?... That's it!??? Hell that thing ain't even started leaking yet, you'll be fine.

June. Ummm... Prolly not. (But hopefully I'm wrong.)

And personally I'm biased to the SRT line. But if I were going to get an Overland for instance, I'd go CRD. I like the exclusivity of it. It's another niche IMO. And the performance is there! As I believe, Padgett said before, an SRT could get a run for its money out the gate vs. the new CRDs! Hemis are fun too. They have their upside. And I could go into that.. But that's not what you want. So why bother?

Here's a proposition; let God, the universe, or mere chance decide. (Idk which you believe in..) If your WJ lasts, then wait it out and get the CRD.. If not, then you know the CRD wasn't "for you" and you can decisively go make a deal on a Hemi. That way (if you end up with a Hemi) you won't look back with regret from pulling the trigger too soon. (Simple enough?)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Mmmmm... the soft prattle of a diesel and the whiz of the turbo as you rip by someone on a mountian pass because they ran out of torque.

For me, the choice is clear, the CRD hands down.

Towing, MPG, and add in that she's only just slightly slower then the Hemi off the line and to 60... feh.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If you ask me, it's probably too early to decide between the CRD and the HEMI simply because we don't have all the numbers yet. We don't know the prices of the two versions and we don't know the new MPG-ratings either.

It isn't even confirmed yet if either the CRD or the HEMI (or perhaps both) will get a performance-bump in hp due to the new 8-speed or not and how the 8-speed will effect both vehicles in general.

Hmm, thinking about it, being a "spectator" over the next 2 years might not be that bad...
