Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Marlon JB2 or ChevyBoy,

If you will, please provide comment on the following spy pic (below)...it appears that the front clip in this pic is fairly different than those in the most recent pics, like it's a 2-piece clip (top w/grill & bottom airdam) vs a 3-piece clip (grill, bumper, and airdam as we saw)...

1 - is this a version that will be used on the upper level trims, or a prototype that got ditched in favor of the version we just saw??

2 - if it will be used, which trim should we look for it on??

...just curious, cuz it looks like it may be a better looking version...hard to tell with the camo.

All I know is that IF it is mainly the finished product I will get it with some adjustments but I'm hoping the picture is the finished product for the summit!!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Maybe we can buy Chevyboy the swirly camo so that he can still get one without really noticing the changes.

That rear light bar which you guys are calling a license plate brow, is what it is and as I described who knows how many pages ago. None will be chrome. Well, I haven't seen one chrome one yet. I'm not sure if the Jeep logo is attached by us, they seem to come out of the box like that.

They did not run out of paint. The Laredo grille will be silver, but I'm not sure if they all will be silver. I'm glad the chrome has been toned down. When I was staring at a few last night, I couldn't help but think that the entire vehicle looks so much more upscale now, nowhere as cheap looking as before, no matter the trim level.

These pictures are terrible and do nothing for the Grand Cherokee at all. Tape or no tape. It truly does look better in person.

Stop being so negative, chevyboy and come over on C shift chassis so I can talk to you and give you some encouragement. It's not the end of the world you know.

Wait until NAIAS, for a true look.

Oh and regarding the Grand Wagoneer, Sergio made that statement before it got pushed back a year. Notice how old that article is. That is the status as of now but who knows? This is the auto industry. Things change every minute. Maybe we will see it?
THANK YOU!!! That is what I wanted to hear. My last question... can you confirm if the summit will get chrome instead of grey across the grill like on the laredo? Will the standard overland be body colored like the Limited?

You know, I actually can't answer that question because I am STILL confused as to how the entire front fascia MINUS headlamps comes together on these '14s.

I'll let you know in January when volume production starts.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Do all models come with dual exhaust now? And please get rid of the grey ugly grill on the laredo models.

Thank you JEEP! You have now created a market for my chrome body side molding that has been collecting dust!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Marlon can you comment whether or not that the front fascia will be different than what is seen ,specifically on the summit and srt8, like the picture above because it seems that you are avoiding the question a lil

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yes, slightly. I am not good with descriptions but the Overlands are more chromy.
