Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That's my only concern as well on the front. They need to fill in that gap or else it will look like they half did the front bumper. That gap still isn't enough to discourage me from potentially buying one, but it will hurt the look of this vehicle if they leave something as minor as that exposed.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

are the black inserts for the washer blades on the lights? I thought this was a new feature for 14?

That would be cool - however, I have not heard anything about potential washer blades..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It may be there for the headlight washers that Australian and European are required to have.At the moment there is a small plastic panel that pops out when washers activate.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I officially LOVE the new 2014 headlights for a very comical, minuscule and historic reason! I seriously LOL'd!

Ah..those are the ones that were introduced on the 2013 Summit. They only spray - no blades.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous already confirmed that the MY14 SRT8 and Summit will get the washers as well - so we have to wait how they will be integrated.

I'd rather have them instead of the fillers but I suspect they will be bumper-integrated as they are now.

Looks like there might be some more chrome covered up on the lower bumper portion.

Also noticed it looks like the rear spoiler is new/redesigned.

How's this for a possible "cleaned-up" render of what is going on behind that black tape on the headlights?

Keep in mind the "black" under the headlights near the grill appears to be a plastic-insert (space-filler)...not tape.

Did I get close with it?! Hope you like it!
This picture looks so much better than the spy shots and if this is close to the final look I think I really like the designchanges overall, although I still think the current grille is much better. I'm so keen to see more pictures!!!!!
