To all... please take care about all the fine details in the PDF, don't forget it's made for the Swiss Market, so it could give some differences to other markets!
Ich bin sicher, dass es einige gibt.\nIch bin nicht ich werde mit den Farbenfarben glücklich sein so sicher. Es ist die gleichen Informationen, die früher durch Milous herausgegeben wurden.

@Alpakong... you got right, but the Summit will get the headliner in suede... and that's pretty cool and very noble
Can't you simply look at the current pricing? That should add up with the figures shown on Slide 2!? What ever, 2.5% sound reasonable and acceptable.

Suede headliner is of course nice but I would love to be able to read that information on slide 3. That seems to be really interesting. Currently I still think an overland with indigo interior is the way to go for me.

I'm kind of surprise that there is no information on wood colors!?

But overall I think they do exactly the right things! And even the front grows on me . I love it

You made my day gigi boy

Hi Gigi,

Thanks again for the info.

I believe the poster above meant "Sh*t" as in "awesome", not meaning this information is not valuable, because it is.

As you are the original poster for this info, I do believe you when you mention it's for the Swiss market... but then why are price increments expressed in Euros (and not Swiss Francs)? Does this mean the importer will have to do his own little currency "kitchen" of hedging CHF vs. EUR?
With the original currency of manufacturing being USD, I believe the ultimate customer (i.e. myself) will end up lining up the pockets of bank forex traders in the process that will take this truck from JNAP to the dealership in Switzerland.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm unhappy with the color options too. It looks like they dropped a real red in favor of auburn, which on the Dodge looks like maroon.

Here's my next try... hope it works better an easier to use than with the uploanding page.

Would be very nice from you to here, what you think about that information.
Wow, great info gigi! Much obliged. Is your original copy by any chance in color and higher resolution? Any chance it can be uploaded that way?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I think the $ upgrade is probably reasonable with the new transmission and the new interior technology. I didn't look at the difference between the petrol vs. diesel $. That to me will be the bigger hit. I'm sure it'll be another $3K (?) to upgrade.

I said crap b/c I was hoping they'd add another color choice or two. The auburn might be interesting blending a red with the rugged brown. In pictures online I don't think I like it but in person it might be totally different. I love the max steel in pictures but in person it's just not the same- it's a great color but not my favorite in person. It's definitely not a game changer though. I wouldn't not get a '14' GC just because of the color. I'm a guy not a girl (no offense to the lovely ladies on this site).

I'll have to research to see if in the past they've offered different colors in EU vs. US- there's still a chance that they will offer different colors here pending they read our posts and listen to what their consumers want & not what some artsy fartsy guy with a masters degree in color science thinks we want.

great find on the info! Thanks for posting.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

From this, it certainly seems the interior will be trying to win me over from the apparent step back the exterior is taking. Still trying to acclimate to the first Grand Cherokee without a chrome grille. But this Indigo and Jeep Brown combination sounds right up my alley. Now to see it in Bright White and True Blue. Thanks for sharing the pdf, gigi.

Did we ever get the confirmation of Milous's hint for the feature the CRD will offer that no other GC has? That must have been about 2000 posts ago by now.
