I completely agree with Speyside. I wasn't questioning him being drunk to the point of not knowing what he's talking about. I just have those days where I would like more mental clarity and was thinking that a small tumbler of good Scotch might do the trick!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I've been trying to keep up, but this thread grows so fast I just want to know if I missed something.

Are January 9th and 22nd still the key dates for ordering and production starts?

As far as I know. For a time there a week or two ago it was suggested by Milous that there were some rumblings that the order banks now wouldn't be opening until early February, but he'd have to check. Then I believe he confirmed that January 9th was still on. Scottina then said "I wouldn't be so sure", to which Milous responded, "source? ".

That is awesome. I was hoping that would be the case. I'm also hoping we'll be able to see the list here a few days before the order banks open.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I see Milous is viewing this thread....I wonder if he's getting ready to post a tidbit about the final paint colors.

Just a hunch or maybe more wishful thinking.

Actually I think Milous said he had 2 sources saying January and 2 saying February but as of right now it hasn't changed. But like you say, it's hard to keep up.

Three of four are saying 1/9, but it's easy for Chrysler to change at any time so I can still not say 100% for the 9th.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Im hearing the 3.6 V6 will jump 10 hp to 300 hp and the 3.6 paired with the 8 speed will have best in class mileage.....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hi everyone,
I'm new here and to the GC. I do have prior exp with the CJ7. But after readding all of the helpful info about the MY14s, I am proud to say I''ll be heading to the dealer to put my GC CDR asap. Only one thing, Milous, Chevy, Marlon, have you guys figured out the whole headlight filler panel thing?? I may have missed it seeing as I just finished reading over all 343 pages of posts in about 12 hours. So me missing it is possible. Thanks
