Also, are you seeing the scoop on the factory floor? Does it come on the Overland or just the Limited.

Thanks in advance. Time to update my 96 Cherokee!
"What up doe!" << (Detroit slang)

I'm sorry man, I wasn't confirming that as a scoop, I was just confirming the model. What you're seeing is really just detail in the hood. A scoop on these wouldn't be functional in any way. The SRT only has cutouts in the hood for heat extraction and downforce. What you see on that model is similar to what already exists. (If not exact.. My bad.)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

All this talk about MPG makes me want to go do a few quarter mile tests and a few launches in the Jeep.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Looking at the numbers I would say that CRD would get about 28 mpg highway as is in US. With 10% bump from 8-speed I would guess somewhere around 30 should be doable. Maybe even 31.

I agree 30 is a magic number from marketing point of view. NOBODY HAS 30MPG SUV currently on the market, NOBODY. They are very close to that number and I think if I was Jeep executive I would see this as a failure if that number wasn't there.

CRD EXTRA URBAN MPG (L/100KM) 39.2 (7.2)
SRT EXTRA URBAN MPG (L/100KM) 28.0 (10.1)

CRD EURBAN MPG (L/100KM) 27.4 (10.3)
SRT EURBAN MPG (L/100KM) 13.5 (20.9)

Keep in mind, those MPG are in Imperial Gallons, not US.

In US MPG:
COMBINED MPG
EU CRD 28.339106
EU SRT 16.681885
EPA SRT 14

HIGHWAY MPG
EU CRD 32.668692
EU SRT 23.288572
EPA SRT 18

CITY MPG
EU CRD 22.836367
EU SRT 11.254286
EPA SRT 12

Now, as I said before, the EPA and the EU folks do seem to do their certification testing differently, generally, their highway/combined numbers are higher then ours, and their city are lower then ours (Compare these numbers to the EPA numbers as a reference point).

As such, I'd hazard a guess that the CRD will get a rating of 29MPG on the Highway and 26MPG in the City with the 8speed (10% boost) from the EPA.

Of course, I could be completely wrong (as we all know that Red makes you drive faster, there by reducing your MPG becuase you have a lead foot, and thusly, spend more time idling next to the road when the cops pull you over).

And yes, my job involves looking and working with ALOT of data... I am a numbers nerd...

I wouldn't say that. The Kia Sorento 2.4GDI gets 30MPG on the highway and seats 7

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I guess you are right, didn't know about that one.

On the other hand it is quite a compromise to get to 30MPG as I think asterisk meant it is only for FWD not AWD/4WD version, small engine and Sorento is a crossover. Technically SUV but closer to a minivan in that setup than a true SUV but a lot of people don't care.
