Is there a change to the availability of the Quadra-Lift system in MY2014?!?


No, I think he is saying he would prefer an Overland WITHOUT QuadraLift, I think he is saying he would like it as optional instead of standard.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

couple of Q's for the great ( Milous )

1-if the 2014 model is going to be built starting from JAN 2013 ... When will we see them at the dealers ( i'm in the middile east ) ? We got our first batch of SRT8 around the end of FEB.

2- are the Export models geeting the new 8-speed and the other cool stuff ?

i was going to get one of the early 2013 that arrives here in saudi, but if the mid cycle is this close i'll wait couple of monthes and get a 2014 beast when it is still 2013

So what do you guys think? Is this new 8-speed tranny going to make the HEMI a bit more responsive? Although the HEMI comes with 360HP, we all know that the current driving-experience makes you think it's much less.

We might get a few additional MPG but it would be awesome if the 8-speed could also cut some time from the current 0-60 number...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

^ the 8 speed in the LX cars is going to cut close to a second off the 0-60 time reportedly. Most of the.Hemi lag in the Jeep is due to the tuning and shift points. Once the predator is released it will help significantly.

That sounds promising. Although I'm aware of the fact that the Overland is not a racecar, I'd certainly like to profit from its V8-engine and get something in return for its (below average) MPG-number..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Now I read that Dodge will drop the Durango and bring it back as the Jeep Wagoneer. Any news?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Has anyone heard anything about the 2014 GC getting an integrated running board?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Why would anyone one want an integrated running board in a 4x4 so capable???

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any idea if the harmon kardon system from the SRT will trickle down as an option on other models?

Very glad to see led DRLs and tail lights as I think they should have been included in the original re-design.
