Are you aware of if all models will be available when the order banks open? Or will it be the CRD is open first, then the SRT will be available to order a month later...

(I'll be at the dealer the day the banks open for a '14 SRT). I'm going to drive myself batty waiting.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thought I'd share this here since there seemed to be some doubt earlier in the thread about the ability of the 8-speed transmission to take on the torque from the diesel or the V8:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZF_8HP_transmission

One of its main aims is to improve vehicle fuel economy, and it can achieve an 11% saving compared to ZF-6 speed transmission and 14% versus modern 5-speed transmissions.[2][3] Due to changes in internal design, shift times have reduced to 200 milliseconds, along with the ability to shift in a non-sequential manner - going from 8th to 2nd in extreme situations.[4] In the 8HP70 version, it has a torque handling limit of 700 newton metres (516 lbf·ft), and weighs 90 kilograms (198 lb).[5]

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I just want to see the new SRT wheels and face-lift. The interior is minor as I don't fie d myself looking at the screen for more than two seconds to change the station and I could do that from the steering wheel. When will we see pictures of the SE SRT?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Have we found out if any additives are required for diesel?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Unless they have changed something, no DEF addatives are required as they use a diesel particulate filter (DPF) to scrub the exhaust and an exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR) system to burn off/clean the DPF.

So no DEF as far as I'm aware.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I only care what it looks like. And will be waiting for a Black Clear Coat Overland or Overland Summit with BLACK Nappa Leather Interior and BLACK Burl Wood trim and 20" polished wheels. And then if they don't offer a blacked out looking exterior (like the Altitude), I'm going to get Black Clear Coat Mirror Caps and Handles, replace the side chrome strips with the GRAND CHEROKEE letters, Black Bi-Xenon Headlamps with LED DRLs, projector fogs with pure white light, Black Clear Coat Grill with Gloss Black insert and Gloss Black Rear License Brow Light Bar. AND hoping all of the fasica and bumpers are painted rather than just bumpy black plastic. That is my dream WK2.
