Right! Lol..

'13 production RESUMES Jan 7th (Monday, 6am), and continues through the end of the month (at least). Grossing 600 cars a shift x 2 shifts a day x say, 25 days = 30,000 cars yet to be built, +/- a few hundred.

Production calendar should be in our hands on Monday.. We'll know then when the "scheduled" build-out for '13s is..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I think the 11 - 13 WK2 have the same trans that was in my old WJ. It did OK around town and flat surfaces, but was awful in the mountains. Since that car was mostly used to drive through the Sierras, that was a problem for me. The *#&^$($ thing would downshift and stay stuck there unless I lifted much more than I wanted. That was the first automatic vehicle I ever had and I replaced it with a stick shift AWD vehicle so I can choose the proper gear myself.
I hope that the 8 speed ZF based trans with the CRD will be much better than that old combo. I am planning on going on a very extended test drive over some hills before I make a commitment, but based on 8 speed feedback, I am sure all will be good.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Well the current trans allows you to manually slap down a gear.... or change into tow mode. Im sure two more gears will help but its not gonna be ground breaking.

Hi GIGI

Do the euro models get built in a factory in Austria or in the US, I read somewhere the Australian and EU units are built in Austria but not sure if that is still the case?

Robo,

they all come from the US, I think Chrysler / Jeep doesn't produce anymore in Austria (Steyr / Magna).

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Another stealth edit of page 1 to remove the Jan order date? Guess it must be official now :-(. The wait for more interior pics is killing me. I've never checked a site for updates so much in my life.

I think 70-90 of those are mine! We made a deal with Chrysler and took 45 Journeys and Darts to get 30 more GCs.

Personally I'm pretty happy that I don't have to worry about running out of the 13s before the 14s hit.

On another note 3 different people have told me dealer order won't open until February which after reading your post makes some sense.
