Sorry, I couldn't resist. I've been picking on people all day because I'm not getting much for new tidbits
Pick on the guy that keeps going on about the CDR instead of the CRD. It's been driving me wild. My girlfriend says I have a problem; I'm starting to agree.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Don't see any mention in my tidbits archive of Stop/Start for the 2014 GC. It's a very complex system, involving changes to engine, HD starter, HD alternator and a whole bunch of other stuff. Maybe 2015 model year, and V6 only. They are using the 2013 Ram as a test bed, to work out all the bugs. The 2014 WK2 has enough new features as it is, Stop/Start would only add further complexity.

Are those different than the DRC or the upcoming RCD, or more like the RDC that Toyota has?

Sorry, I couldn't resist. I've been picking on people all day because I'm not getting much for new tidbits and I was supposed to order my new Jeep today but someone over must be slacking to hold up production.

Anyone hear from Ralph lately?

Yea its a super limited edition, I'm surprised you're not familiar with it, haha!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Maybe they'll go straight to the dial and paddles. But what happens to the buttons on the back of the wheel ?

LOL.

Manley is just a marketing guy.

Nothing more.

Wanna send over complaints?

Send them to Tony Petit and crew! Lead engineers for vehicles!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Who's in charge of making the decision for special edition models? We need to get them the message that we want an Overland based Altitude/S-Limited style edition in 2014!!!!!!!
