You're probably right. As I said before, the .pdf matches the colors available for the SRT8 that Milous confirmed.

You are right, although I very much like the adaptive lighting and the Harman system of the SUMMIT.

Guess we just have to wait till we know for sure. I still believe that their Natura Leather must be real leather, because the Laramie Longhorn has "Natura Plus Axis II Leather" as interior fabric and is described clearly by Chrysler/RAM in their brochure as having "premium leather seats". Can't believe that Mike Manley, who seems to be a good and capable guy, would go down an "artificial leather for premium model seating" route. I have no problem with artificial leather on the sides of the seat, just not where it meets my butt.

In the worst case, your pointing to the Overland version would not necessarily help. If it would turn out that indeed they call it premium leather seats but it is in fact artificial leather, I would feel cheated and would be hesitant in principle to buy into such brand.

Let's hope that all turns out just great (which I am confident it will) because I want to support keeping Marlon and Chevy working!

I broke my promise and wrote again about this f...ing leather thing but this was REALLY the last time.

I think if I recall Milous had mentioned they're dropping the 8 so it becomes just the SRT.. not sure.

#7 Would be SRT Hellcat
#8 Would be possibly TrailHawk (again) ?

this of course if there were 8 models..heh.. which was a guess in the first place I think.

They've been using Deep Cherry Red on some of the '14 pilot builds so who knows, maybe it or a variant will make final production. As far as sales go, red has not been high on the list. For 2012 SRT's it represented just 12% of builds worldwide. I'll see if I can find some numbers for the non-SRT models.

That would be me and Chevyboy.

And correct, as I said... no more SRT8.

Just SRT. (Well... badging wise)

I would love to see an Orange color I think it would actually go great with the front end of the refreshed Jeep.

I knew I'd read it, sorry I didn't give proper credit.

I'm looking forward to the new SRT badging.. or is it pretty much the same as on the Charger etc? (Silver SRT in SRT font of course)

Of course, if you can say. Thank you!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Well, the leather is interesting and the colors could be a deal-maker, or breaker, but:

When might we get a peak at some EPA numbers on the 8-speed? They are going to have to take those to Detroit. I'd think that a "leak" of that info would qualify as creating "BUZZ" unless the news ain't that good. Make that major feature position the GC as THE SUV and it's just a matter of picking the right color combination. Functionality trumps a LOT.

How about it? What are the numbers?
