Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I can't believe they dropped the Cherry Red and kept that awful green instead.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hey chevyboy, Marlon, perhaps even Milous or Scott: do any of you guys know if Jeep designed the 2014 (or maybe even the 2013s) so that it does well in the IIHS's new small overlap frontal crash test that was first revealed to the general public in August? Apparently several other companies made running changes in their vehicles so they performed better:

IIHS news release
IIHS news release

Being a bit of a safety nut, I'm crossing my fingers and hoping so.

I have never seen the "awful green" in person. They must not ship those here.

That is a great point. I always check that info out before purchasing as my old '05' 4Runner saved my life as well as preventing serious injuries.

It's not awful. It looks black, unless viewed in bright sunlight to see the green flecks.

It's not my intent to offend anyone who likes it, but how many have you seen?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I saw that green the other day at a strip mall. When it was in the shadow of the building it totally looked black. As it turned around the end of the building into the sunlight it totally looked green. I don't mind a paint color that can appear as different colors, but not so much when the other color is black...(because the dark blue does the same thing)

Yep. I wasn't so much commenting about whether it's a good color or not. That's certainly a personal preference. But from a commercial perspective it just wasn't a very big seller while the red was pretty popular. I had my heart set on a red summit but oh well, maybe the auburn won't be too bad.

Everybody should have my problems!

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.

Thanks for posting this Gigi, really great information! Also (if I haven't said it before), many thanks to Chevy, Marlon and Milous for the insider intel (and others for their own detective work). Without this forum, the wait might be unbearable. With this forum, it's just my workplace productivity that suffers. My girlfriend's getting pretty annoyed at how often I have the site open on my phone when we're hangin' out...oops!

Quick question about wheels. Are the standard Laredo/Limited 18" wheels the only 18s that are going to be available on the 2014? With all due respect, I don't think they're fitting at all for what's supposed to be a rugged (yet refined) SUV and I MUCH prefer the existing 18s. Any chance there's another set of 18s in the domestic line-up that isn't in this Euro spec sheet? I'm shopping in the US market.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have to say that this information is GREAT!

So the Summit is indeed getting an Alcantara headliner. However - based on this source - the SRT8 won't.

Also interesting: The CD-Player is integrated into the center console.

Based on this source, the Summit would not be available in Billet Silver. Strange..

Oh, and it seems that the 5.7 HEMI does indeed get a slight "power-boost".

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Regarding the PDF:

Damn it!!!!


Regarding the new IIHS, IMO, pointless small overlap crash test:

Since there were no major structural changes.... I can't imagine any differences in any crash testing.

However, Thanks for the entertainment! Poor Toyota Camry.

Friends don't let friends drive Toyota!

... I approve this message.
