Sweet! And this would be an actual bump in horsepower over the engines from model years prior (in other words not just an increase in the listed specifications or changing the measurement procedure)?

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
The black filler piece is for the headlight washer, this has been confirmed. There are supposedly 3 different headlight housings

I suggest that you PM Chevyboy_711 because he's the expert and loves explaining it.

By the way, just wanted to point out to you that one pet peeve on this site is when people refer to the common rail diesel (CRD) as the CDR. It could have been a typo but I just wanted you to use the proper abbreviation in the future so you don't get shredded by someone else.

Glad you're stoked about a new Jeep! I can't wait either!!!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

IMHO opionion Jeep dropped the ball on the headlight washers. That could be the DUMBEST execution I have seen yet on a headlight washer system. What a HUGE fail and half assed way to add them on a super vehicle.

So, get your order ready for next month.
I'm not the best looking dude, but the wife likes me in jeans. I may not be able to see the tail lights, but there is something to driving a vehicle that is both distinctive and looks right. As plenty of posts have indicated regarding various components/options, some will have no problem with it and love it, while others will see room for improvement. I'm looking forward to making my first Jeep my own. The '14's tail lights/gate will factor into my purchase.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

IF, BIG IF, the CRD GCs start production as posted. I.E. 25MAR13 would I be able to pick my GC up from the plant as I will be on leave and visiting family 15 minutes north of JNAP, if I got the order in early enough? I mean it would save me the destination fee on it.

But back on subject, would I be able to load the SRT performance pages on the RA4 even though I want to get the LTD. instead of the SRT?

From what I've been told, only the Viper allows for at factory pickup.

I was talking to my dealer about the same thnig (factory pickup) but it sounds like that's a no go.

That said, I am curious when I could expect delivery of my CRD. I'm assuming that if it's a late March production start, that delivery would start 2-3 months later (so late June)?
