I am convinced Cashmere is a conquest color for people coming from Toyota. They too have that same milky poop shade.
Deep Cherry CRD Limited or Overland would be nice for me but the other half does not like red cars at all . Would also go for True Blue although that looks a little too close to my dearly departed Patriot Blue WJ. Bad memories

True Blue is way darker than Patriot Blue.

Question Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I currently own a MY05 and am very interested in the MY14 so the wife and I went to start looking at other models today to have an idea of what is available and to see the Jeep Overland MY13's. One thing that we are wondering is will Jeep be increasing their bumper to bumper warranty in the MY14 to be more competitive with others? Cadillac (4/50k w/maintenance), Buick (4/50k), Acura (4/50k) and BMW (4/50k w/maintenance). To me the quality and look and feel of the MY13 Overland we looked at matched or exceeded these other brands and we thought it was odd that Jeep hasn't increased their warranty coverage. Any good news potentially coming on this front at the Detroit auto show?!

Jason

I can't imagine how they are going to open order banks on January 8 unless Milous' tidbit meant February 8.

This is like a stealth product launch. Incredible.

When I ordered my '12 Jeep Wrangler it was the same thing ... The first of the info was when I looked at the order bank form online with the dealer. My impatience to order also cost me because a package change from the year prior left me with a different rear axle than desired.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I don't know if this is the appropriate place to bring this up, but here goes.

Finance.

Jeep could really get on the front foot here in Australia with low finance backed by Jeep. Currently the banks will make a car loan at approximately 6-7%, meanwhile the European and Japanese carmakers are doing finance deals at 0.5%. Jeep is missing out on a massive amount of sales because it doesn't offer finance at a competitive rate. When I asked the dealer said 8%

Maybe Milous or some of the Jeep boys on here could give the suggestion to their bosses of cheap finance to launch the MY14 in Australia.

Out of interest, what rate is finance available in the USA for a GC?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Long time lurker, 1st time poster here. First, thanks for all the info on the 2014 model year. I have been waiting a long time for the 8sp and penstar v6 combo in this ride. I have a question regarding the paddle shifters for the 8sp. Will the grand cherokee have paddle shifters like the charger and 300m or will it have the buttons on the steering wheel like the 2013 Ram? I prefer the paddle shifters vs the buttons, they seemed right where they needed to be when I test drove a charger. Also, will someone be able to post the order sheet or options sheet (whatever Jeep calls it) when it becomes available?

Unfortunately that's sometimes not good enough. If it is extremely cold and you go very quick (160 km/h plus), the washer jets still freeze although I use washer fluid that should work until -50C. You really see a cluster of ice on the jets.

There is a reason why some car makers are offeirng this and I think it should be really cheap to install it.

I don't think it is that simple. But I agree the financing of other car companies is really pushing their sales. I mentioned this before if you finance a vehicle it is actually just slightly more expensive to drive an X5 than a Jeep GC although there is a much wider gap between the sticker prices here in Germany.

But to give you an example. I understand from my dealer that the Fiat Bank currently offers 0.9% financing for the 13 GC but the dealer can give you less discount if you chose this offer. So it is acutally cheaper to take the full discount the dealer can give you and use another Bank (also arranged by the dealer!) with 4.99% financing.

The only person that will probably be able to get that information is Milous but he has been silent in here all week. We are hoping he comes in with some information be the ordering banks open for those of us that plan on ordering when the banks open.
