Dude - didnt I tell you you were getting an Overland? Lol.. I knew you'd want some fancy seats. Screw two-tone, that Indigo interior Milous talked about has THREE-tone seats! Black center, brown inner bolstering, blue outer bolstering, and white piping. I'm going to look for other possible color combos on Friday.

Refer back to his post (#3693) for the rest of the details of that interior.

I know you'd said summer 2013 for other srt models, just clarifying.

Any ballpark guesses on price points or model # for ordering?

thank you in advance
From what I gathered 6.2L SC will be part of a "Special Edition" but there wasn't ever a hint from Milous about the exact (or even ballpark) timing. I tried to lure Milous into giving similar tidbits but without success, so I guess this is still restricted info, even for Milous.

From experience the Jeep gets the new goodies later than the LX platform (that's how it went for the 6.4L). So more patience is needed...

With any luck, when the MY2014 6.4L is available for order in Europe, we'll know more about the 6.2L SC, so I'll be able to base a purchase decision on more info.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Uh oh....
I test drove a different vehicle yesterday that was VERY impressive.

I'm going to have to use it as a comparison to the '14' GC when they finally come out to see what I'd rather have....

I thought it was difficult deciding between the GC models but now with another option out there it's going to be even a more difficult choice....unless
someone over there in Detroit hops to it.

The above double-secret coded message is intended for a particular few... if you can decode and give me a sufficient answer I will not stray.

Let's see...We know you want a CRD and you want someone in Detroit to "hop to it". I say you're going to buy a used VW diesel Rabbit! 0-60 in a single afternoon.

As a beer connoisseur, "hops to it" has to be code. You didn't get those MBest brews yet? I'll PayPal you $5. That should cover a 30pk.

And comparing this unknown vehicle to the '14 GC suggests either;

1.) it's a current GC
2.) it's another SUV you're interested in (still drooling over that Kia, huh? #disappointed)
3.) it's another ChryFi vehicle with the 8spd (probably '13 Ram)
4.) ok that's all I got...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Wow, I guess I gave up the ghost too easily. I need to take the Jeep Garage tidbit class to make it more difficult.

One of Chevyboys guesses was correct & you can paypal the $5 but I won't be buying any MBest.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

'13 Ram?... That was actually my first guess, but I deleted the post. You get the 8spd and good fuel mileage, new Nav, EVIC center display, and best of all, COPPERHEAD PEARL paint!!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Regarding RHD legroom...

There is a foam pad under the carpet for Euro NCAP crash testing requirements. It is used on the left and right passenger side.

So, if LHD, crash pad is on the right. If RHD, crash pad is on the left.

That is what decreases legroom, but as previously mentioned, legroom is the same since they're still using the same pad and there are no (major) floorpan changes.

Now THESE are the kind of details you just can't get from a dealership or a manual!
