Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous,
Do the order banks in Canada open on January 14th as well? Looking to order a SRT as soon as possible.

Thanks,

Just a test to see if the pix work through the iPhone app. Sorry for the hijack.
If this works I'm ready for the auto show.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'd love to give you hope 4JD, but if I was a betting man I don't think I like your chances. I'm just hoping for another year of red myself but I think we're both out of luck. At least I already have a Hemi Orange go fast machine.

My advice is try House of Kolor!

Thanks Milous! Would this be the same date for Canada? Is there a specific date involved here? ie: Jan 15th perhaps?

Today I drove the X5 40d of a friend of mine.

The 8 speed granny works very fine - definetely much better than the 5 speed version in the GC.

The power of the 3 litre registerloaded Turbo engine is fantastic. Of course the torque is higher / better than in the GJ's Diesel.

Nevertheless, with the new gearbox I think the difference between the two cars wouldn't be very big!

Something that's pretty cool is the 'area light' (don't know the exact name of it) in the door opener, which starts, when you open the car by the key.

In the dark it illuminate both sides of the car - so nice!

Milous / Marlon, is that e new gadget in the MY '14 too?

Yes, it's been on post # 1 for quite awhille now. Very early on I had it as the 8HP45, which is what was used in the earlier pre-production models. The 845RE is based on the ZF-designed 8HP45 and built by Chrysler in Kokomo, Indiana. Chrysler started running 845RE pilot transmissions last fall, and later incorporated them into the 2014 WK pilots.

The newer 845RE has not appeared in any vehicle yet. It will launch with the Grand Cherokee late this month, and with the Charger and 300 the 1st week of February, followed by the Ram.

The ZF HP70 (used for CRD and Hemi models) will continue to be purchased from ZF and at some point in the future I would expect Chrysler will build them in Kokomo (probably as "870RE").

No specific date given, I'm thinking Tuesday or Wednesday 15th/16th. *Possibly* same for Canada, source could not confirm that but I don't see why not. International, not sure.

It's part of the ambient lighting package BMW has had it on their cars for a while now. It was built into the door handles on my 06 330i and is in the underside of the mirrors of my 650i. Not sure if it's offered on any of the GC's, but it is a nice feature.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So it gonna have a POS Chrysler trans and not the ZF? Pass!! I had the 545 in my 06 WK Hemi and it was annoying to no end! And that was with FIVE gears...I can just imagine it with 8!!! I hope it is true so I am not tempted to trade for a 2014. Just pay mine off in 25 months instead. At 14,500 I have no complaints with the '12! The distraction of LEDs, 8.4" screen, 8 speed will get vetoed by a Chrysler trans!
