Exactly. Especially with options you CAN'T get on any other model and that's what we are seeing with both the Summit and the SRT. I'm in!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

AWESOME SATURDAY TIDBIT - Thanks Milous

and yea chevyboy talked about seeing those at the plant before... "eyes that move" lol. we just have confirmation and more specifics on angles, etc. Teamwork!

now i wonder if this is going to even be an OPTION on the Overland? Or just even more to keep the Summit exclusive. *sigh*

If we are in fact going to get two top end models then I need to ensure that my dealer KNOWS that I will be wanting a SUMMIT over an Overland.....then on the otherhand, it may be that if one has an order in now for an Overland (in Australia) they will automatically be given a Summit???????. Any thoughts?

Hello Everyone. I've been reading for many months now and decided today to finally register. This site has been very helpfull. Thanks to all the peeps that have been giving out such great information.

Little bit about myself. I work at Chrysler WAP. We build the Dodge, Chrysler, Ram Cargo and (VW Routan but not for some time) Minivans.

My brother has had several Jeep Grand Cheerokee's. A 1999? Limited, 2010 SRT8 and now he just purchased the 2013 Overland here in Canada. I am looking forward to purchasing my first Jeep. Hopefully a 2014 Overland Summit, possibly the SRT8 but the wife isn't happy about the SRT8 idea

My question is for Milous or anyone that could answer. Will Canada get the Overland Summit edition? Reason I ask is that the only one offered here when my brother bought his Overland was just the Overland. No Summit. But I do believe the only difference was the chrome mesh grill, chrome tow hooks and fog bezels, olive ash steering wheel. There were some options available but not the ones I just listed. So he came close to what you guys in USA have in the Summit minus some features. Which I found to be disappointing. I would like all the Summit options here in Canada as well.

I will be attending the NAIAS this year after a few years absence. Can't wait to see the 2014's. I just hope that we will finally be able to purchase a Overland Summit edition here in Canada because it wasn't made available here. Otherwise I may have to try and cross border shop(my wife is American) if the Overland Summit edition isn't made available here in Canada. Does anyone know if it will be available here as well as others have stated it will be in Austrailia and Europe?

Thanks guys.

Haha... You keep swooning me with details, and the Overland is just sounding awesome.

Milous will confirm, but I'm 99% sure Canada will get the Summit. And if for some odd reason it doesn't, you're only a half-an-hour away from the nearest CDJ dealer in Detroit!

As a matter of fact, just for reference, google "Ray Laethem Chrysler Dodge Jeep," and see how far it is from your house. There's another dealer not too far from the border that's ok, but Ray Laethem is only like 5 mins from the plant. Maybe they could arrange for you to pick it up here?

Well, a relatively expensive option will be the rear entertainment system. I don't think that's going to be standard.

But in general, having more standard-features makes a vehicle a bit cheaper when you want to get all the features available compared to a vehicle that has to be ordered with 20 options.

Hey, and what about ME?

OK, let me jump in. GCOverland wants a Summit because it offers all luxury- and technology-features BUT still keeps its Jeep-DNA by being off-road capable. Not that GCOverland is actually known for off-roading - but in general, Jeep is.

Although he owned performance vehicles in the past, he shares the opinion that high performance suits a sedan or coupe better than an SUV and if you decide to go with an SUV, you should focus on one that's a true SUV and one that's aimed at the phrase "utility" - like the Jeep Grand Cherokee. But in the end, that's just his opinion and might change at some point in time - perhaps already when pricing on the MY14 line-up is released..
