Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I think I saw Moroccan Sun last night. It's not reddish. More like a brown with a hint of dark red. I wasn't a fan however I didn't see it completed, just about 3/4 way through assembly, so that may change.

By "halted," did you mean scheduled to be halted, or it HAD been halted? If its the latter, then that's bad intel. The Durango has been built daily along with the GC since October 2010. The build ratio has dropped significantly at times (favoring the GC of course), reflective of WD sales, but there has never been a build ratio of 10:0. Most days it's something like a 7:3 build.

Way earlier than October 2010 if you count pilots.

Lets go back to May!

Lol.. I'm just messing around. I said a long time ago that ppl would like it. But yea, those pics definately don't do it any justice. I have my qualms with it, but overall it's still an extremely nice vehicle. Idk that I'll ever be a fan of those taillights, even on the SRT, but I can live with it. It'll do well. I just think the '11 set the bar extremely high, and that success is hard to duplicate. But that's a good problem for us!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The '14 is getting the same treatment as when the WK2 was released after the WK. Half of the people loved it, thought it was the reincarnation of Jesus himself in a car; and half of the people hated it, thought it was the ugliest thing ever. We even had to have a thread in THE FLAMMABLES on it and guess what, everyone who hated has grown to like it! Give it some time to grow on you. And if you don't like the exterior then change it. You know 80% of the people going to get one are getting it due to the srt8/interior upgrades/ or the 8 speed transmission. I will agree, it's not my favorite exterior but looking at it, I see so many things that could be done to make it a bad arse rig.

WJ still sold better. But these days, with all of the extreme competition, I'd say we're doing quite well.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Note to product planners; do not introduce any version of the GC with the silver grille. It looks so bad it will devalue the entire brand.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I thought I read about 9,000,000 posts ago about the rear wiper coming from the top under the spoiler. Was that a rumor only? I was looking forward to that little change :-/

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The grey grill seems to be on everyones mind...why??? dont you see the other one is color matched? There is nothing to worry about. The SRT will be fine too..

So, this is the alternative trim to the Dark Olive on the Summit, right?

What do you think? Will it look good as a contrast on a black interior?
