Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Are you taking this from the very 1st pictures from months ago of the inside of the test vehicle?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

One question on the interior with the new 8.4" radio. I was just at the LA show this weekend and got some hands on with the 8.4" in the updated Rams and test drove the 300 with the 8 speed (which is super smooth and I gladly welcome in the update) as well as the 8.4" screen. Will the update have the black plastic trim around the radio that's in the 300 and Ram or will it be more integrated with the dash like it is in the Charger? That's the only part of the dash in those vehicle that turned me off, but everything else was super nice and has a very upscale look/feel to it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I wish Jeep made all of the A/C controls and selec-terrain shiny smooth black plastic (like the Cayenne has), instead of the matte look.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Won't be long until we know MPG numbers. We built the ones used for certification so long ago...

Well.. in theory, if the 8 Speed gives a 10% bump you'd see something around:

V6 Overland
MPG (City):
17.6

MPG (Hwy): 25.3
MPG (Combined): 20.9

V8 Overland
MPG (City): 14.3
MPG (Hwy): 22.0
MPG (Combined): 16.5

SRT
MPG (City): 13.2
MPG (Hwy): 19.8
MPG (Combined): 15.4

CRD Overland
MPG (City): 25.1*
MPG (Hwy): 36.0*
MPG (Combined): 30.8*

*Estimates calculated from the current EuroSpec L/100KM rating.

The question about the part between the seats concerns the silver - will it be still coloured plastic or will it be real aluminium / metal???

The plastic under the 'metal' in the Overland / Summit - is it now covered in leather (for example like in the Cayenne) or still plastic.

Further I got a technical question:
-Will this Smartphone App also work in Europe (especially in Switzerland) or only in the US?
-Everybody speaks about the new HD Radio... in Europe (we don't have Sirius Radio) will it work with the new and not much compatible HD Radio standart or the and in Switzerland often used real DAB / DAB+?

36hwy?? I doubt it. I believe this was stated before about a page ago that they are trying to get 30mpg with the CRD. As stated before by Milous in post 2836.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Correct.

Again, it will all come down to gearing.

Unless my math is *way* off on the L/100KM conversion, they are already hitting 32MPG on the highway.

The only thing I can think of is that Milous was saying they wanted to his a combined average of 10MPG on the CRD.

At anyrate, any CRD numbers are all smoke and mirrors until actual testing is complete.

That said, I do know that how the EPA tests is different then how NCAP and those folks test their vehicles, so that may be the source in the difference as well.
