I hope we get a really good tidbit before your production shuts down next week.
When is the Detroit show? Would you think Milous would be able to release the package information/specs before the show or will we have to wait until then?
Press preview - Jan 14-15th
Manufacturers/Vendors preview - Jan 16-17th (I think)
Charity preview - Jan 18th
Public access - Jan 19-27th
Production start - ...

I believe Milous WILL have more package specifics before the show..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Looks like the dash is designed specifically for the 8.4" screen and doesn't accommodate the lower end radios as well. Doesn't bother me much since I would go for the 8.4" nav anyways.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Gauge pod looks like it was in a fire and melted. Seems like a lot of changes just for the sake of change, but at least they aren't sitting around and doing nothing I guess. Can't imagine what they have planned for the next gen model if this is a mid-year update.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I actually hope the gauge cluster received a thorough update. The big thick needles look rather crude in the 11 - 13 to me. I think I read that the display in the middle of the cluster has some enhancement so maybe we got nicer gauge needles in the process.

Oh, and do any of the insiders know what version went to the auto magazines for testing. Looking forward to a test of the CRD WK2 against its German diesel competitors

The buttons may look nice but there are quite many on the front, I guess due to the paddles there will be no more buttons on the back which I thought was nice.

How about a "squeeze" volume control: the harder you squeeze the wheel, the higher the volume. That way, in an impending accident situation, you get an increasingly loud/annoying sound track to accompany your collision (just like in the movies)....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

What I find interesting is that this interior shot shows SRT8-DNA and basically all the finalized updates. That surprises me a bit because I thought Carbon trim wasn't available any more.

Guess the spy shot is NOT yet completely a "production version"..

Now that's funny about the squeeze volume!

I can take a come down over Christmas and New Year's weekend and help get things ready for production. Whatever it takes. Don't worry though, I don't have any interest in snooping around for any tidbits and if I should happen to accidentally see something I shouldn't have there's no way I'd ever let anyone else know.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes



I see in the picture above that there's some black tape on the dash above the radio.

I wonder if it's the same black tape they used around the headlights.
