Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I wonder if they will put 2014 on a small diet to reduce weight a bit to help with MPG and performance. Currently it is as heavy as RAM pickup.

Dear Snofire - thank you for the advice. I have opened a new thread "Leather Seat Quality Experience MY 2013" in the WK2 forum.

My wife has a 13 limited with leather. Got it first of September. Leather looks like new yet.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

When do we start getting the pricing of the 14s?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Leather should be durable so long as it is maintained. You have to clean it and condition it with quality products. I do mine about every 6 months.

This is the interior of my 2002 convertible, bought new, regularly exposed to the sun, but detailed at least twice a year. No fading, jeans bleed, or cracking. This picture was taken in September after a thorough detail on the tenth anniversary of its delivery. It still looks new:



And the more typical five year old interior for my mostly daily driver. Also detailed regularly (maybe 3 or 4 times a year) with no cracking or fading.



If the leather is good to start with and you treat it with love, it should be durable and even get better and softer with age.

We are waiting to get that information from Milous but it might not come until the NAIA in Detroit.

We as dealers are being told we won't be able to order until February Allocation, if that's the case then the code guide/price guide probably won't be available until then.

Well, that's kind of a given, but either way, I'd honestly like to know just as much how much they will cost as what they will look like. They kinda go hand in hand.

Crap, I hope for our sake they're telling you erroneous info.

When is Feb. Allocation?
