Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is there any chance that they would change the design of the front grill for the 2014 at the last minute. Is it possible to retrofit it to the old design. Also the back lights are awful.

What the hell where they thinking? I have patiently waited for the Diesel engine and the transmission enhancements but they have ruined the car with this new design. What kind of design school did these people go to?

It's funny how people perceive things differently. When I look at the side by side pics, the 14 looks more "aggressive"; or maybe more to the point, they tried to make it look more aggressive. I hate to say this, but it reminds me of the stuff GM does, with over-exaggerated bulges, angles, etc. the previous styling was much more elegant, this looks like they tried too hard and over-did it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Too bad they couldn't leave something that was not broke alone. Sometimes people think that change is a must. Wonder when the exact date is with all the concrete details of the 2014 GC will be announced? Anyone? Bueller ?? Anyone ???

Agree...I would have bought my Summit in white if I could have done so, but it wasn't an option.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Since the parts are, hopefully, already made what you see is probably what you get.

It will be interesting to see how many people like it once it hits the street.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I wish we could get real info out of Jeep as to why they changed the bumper and grill. I really like the current look and wish they simply would have enhanced the mechanical, updated the media and left the exterior alone.

Milous --

I really appreciate your information!! I am still planning to put a deposit on the SRT as soon as I can do it. It looks like that has now shifted to a variable date between 1/5 to 2/8??

We are making this central to a family vacation and a delivery at the end of April or early May would be ideal. My salesman is on board and willing to share his connection to Chrysler but he gets no information from them. He monitors this forum as well.

My only real questions are 1) how to help him help me get the order placed and 2) do I risk missing some feature or option by ordering to soon (the early adopter syndrome in my other addiction - computers)

As always I will appreciate your advice?

I agree, the original WK2 design (especially the front clip) was MUCH cleaner.
