Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

But does it offset the price different with the mileage is going to be the big question....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Slower is a deal killer for me in any case. I'm already worried the Hemi is not as quick as my 4.7L WJ!

Source? I do think I remember reading that the CRD is at least quicker off the line than the Hemi, but don't have a source to back that up either.

You need to post this in the WJ forum section.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Ok, lets try this again. Here's a more straight to the point version of what I just spent 38 mins of my life trying to post but somehow lost. Round 2:

1.) Theres an inscription in the headlight housings, can anyone guess what it says?

2.) There a quite a few '14 (US) CRD pilots in the building, I saw abt 10 of em. Mainly Overland's and Limited's. So you CRD guys and gals may not end up waiting that long after all.

3.) For my SRT ppl... Those wheels I was dogging, yea I take that back! Idk if the ones I saw today are the same as the ones I saw before, but they look the same, and maybe my change of heart comes bc I saw these outside in a lil' sunlight, and they werent dusty and wrapped in ashy tires. lol... I think you guys will like em. Oh, and for all you guys who like to debadge, you no longer have to worry abt "Jeep" staring at you while you drive.

4.) Speaking of SRTs, the Summit's have cues of SRT styling, but on an upscale level. (I'll elaborate later, my hands are getting tired.)

5.) Looks like the Alpine IS coming back for '14. My jaw dropped, and my heart skipped a beat when I saw it. Milous we gotta talk...

6.) ... Ok, that's enough for now... Chew on that for a lil bit folks!

Depends on how she's geared.

I noticed that alot of times, they gear diesels for towing, not so much for city/highways driving.

Then add in how she's driven.

All of that has a pretty big impact on fuel econ.

There will be a premium upfront for the CRD, I think we all expect that. Now how much, who knows? I'd expect it to be inline with the Hemi, or maybe slightly more given my experience with Benz.

That all said, Jeep is targeting 30MPG for highway* (which is about what my current estimate is churning out fromthe currnent EuroSpec) so you can do the math on your own given the average price of Diesel in your area versus the average price on Unleaded and Premium.

Here's some info on the pricing differences:
Gasoline and Diesel Fuel Update - Energy Information Administration
Daily Fuel Gauge Report--national, state and local average prices for gasoline, diesel and E-85.
