Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

...Well... it's official! I couldn't wait any longer. the constant drooling, sleepless nights, loss of appetite, etc.

My 2012 Summit will be in my shaky and excited hands by the end of next week. I tried to wait until December- I really did- promise.

My lovely wife said: "If you really want to, get a 2012 now while they are in closeout pricing; you can get a 2014 or 2015 in a year or so. You may not want to, or they could blow you away with newer and greater options."
(My God, I love that woman)

-and that was all it took. The sky opened up and sunshine beamed into the garage as if to say "It is done... your Jeep is coming."

okay okay, a little much I know... but I am pumped! pictures to come after I tweak a little.

Thanks to Milous & Scottina- your info is amazing, and I love the site.

I think I love your wife too ;-) haha im only kiddin. Even though I know my wife would think im stupid, I know she would let me do the same thing if really loved the 2014's enough to want to trade or sell my 2012 Overland. I still cant wait to see the real deal pictures of the 2014's. What has my attention most is the new evic and 8" center screen setup, revised front end with LED's, rear LED tails (im hoping they look sweet!), and last but not least the new tranny and possibly the diesel if I like that. Ok I think thats all the changes haha. Ok so I like everything about it! :-D

Same here ... was driving my '11 Audi A4 Quattro and was trying to wait for the 2014, especially the diesel with a reported 33mpg highway ... but, I saw a '12 stone white V6 limited with light frost biege hit the dealer here in Colorado and purchased it that weekend. So far (2,500 miles) am loving my JGC!

Congrats on yours!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Did Jeep jump the gun on their website? I notice googling Jeep Cherokee Disel, one of the results is a webpage www.jeep.com/crd. On the google heading it says "Jeep Grand Cherokee's available 3.0L Turbo Diesel Engine produces massive low-speed torque for increased off the line acceleration, strong tow..."

Clicking on the website you get a blank page. I also noticed the same when you search CRD on their website. You can see if lists Grand Cherokee 3.0 L 5 speed as a performance benchmark. Yes I said 5 speed

Anyways is this normal? Why would jeep update their website when they still have to sell all the 2013 models....?Screen shot 2012-08-01 at 7.57.14 PM.png

If I'm not mistaken, the CRD page has been up since the WK1 Benz diesel. It was accessible for several months after the Daimler deal was over and the CRD was off the market. At some point it just became a dead end with no data though. I suspect the 5-spd is referring to the past and that Milous knows what's coming for MY 2014.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Check my picture in my post. Its specifically talking about the Grand Cherokee

According to Google, it's sat unedited for years. Until it was last updated July 27th, 2012. Google takes a few dates after the edit and that may be while its starting to pop up in searches

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That link used to lead to the 2005 (I think, maybe 2004) CRD info.

Chances are, they are scraping it clean to get ready for the 2014 MY info or to redirect to the 2014 MY info.

I noticed this was showing on google for awhile now. I think has nothing to do with the 2014.
