Ends up it caused more problems and confusion, so the idea was logically abandoned when Fiat came into the picture.
Milous... What are the impending update's next letters?

I've always wanted a car with these. It sucks reaching out to lift and snap the wiper as your driving with the wipers on to clear the ice build up. Subaru has had a wired defrost in the resting area of the wipers for a long time which I thought was a good solution. Are these defrosters wiper based or windshield based?

. The rear one is only on the SRT. Sorry guys.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Contrary to other countries, France so far only had an Overland version and not the Overland Summit.

Would someone know what the versions for France for the 2014 CRD are?

The same (Laredo > Limited > S-Limited > Overland > SRT), or will an Overland Summit version be introduced?

If so, what would the differences to the Overland be?

Thanks Rupbre, you didn't have to post that out for everyone yet as it was for you but thanks anyway. If Milous doesn't post that in the SRT WK2 section, you might want to.

Lol.. It's yours man, do what you want with it. Trust me, that won't get me in any trouble. Otherwise I wouldn't have given you that. Again, you won the game, you deserve the credit for the post. (You don't have to cite me.)

Well it was supposed to be finished on Tuesday (Dec 11), BUT since I asked them to repaint my passenger side rock rail, I am no longer sure. Dunno if that was enough to delay it or not. The reason why?

They painted the driver's side since it was scratched however they were both kinda rusty. So why have one good looking rock rail and one rusty one?

That info could change, it's possible that production of the CRD will be tight for awhile and therefore used for the Limited and Overland models initially, adding the Laredo once engine production catches up. Info on this is still vague and has been hard to confirm 100%.
