Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

i have a crd 2012 grand cherokee bought it about 5 weeks ago and must say it's performance with the 5 speed is exceptional so much torque,it pushes you back especially first to second gear change,while the 8 speed may even be a bit better i doubt it would be that much better to wait for the 2014 just for this gear box,if buying a petrol then wait for the 8 speed,remember it is actually more of a relaxing drive when this car is not changing gears all the time ,my motto has always been if you can do something today do it!! you never know what is around the corner.

No not here (Australia), I was talking to a dealer the other day and he did not even know they were going to use that combo in the GC. Just goes to show Jeep dealers or there sales people dont know a hell of a lot about the products they sell.

The 300 CRD has a 5 speed (export only of course).

Yeah, I've been having to tell my dealer what is coming in the new GC AND the rough dates the order banks open and when the vehicle is scheduled for production and release.

...does not fill me with alot of confidence.

Not to mention, I'm less than inclined to take my soon to be diesel Jeep to the Service department. They did not even know the correct service requirements for my current 09 3.7.

I can't imagine how well they will make the leap to a diesel service plan...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have wondered what sort of service experience we can expect for the CRD. This isn't the first Jeep diesel in the US. Anyone have prior experiences to share?

Do you know if they have fixed the 4wd service light issue? That is, can you actually use it off road?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The suspense is killing me, I want to see pics of the updates.

I'm trying to decide b/w MY14 JGC SUMMIT or MY13 FX35 Limited Edition in Moonlight White, yes I know two completely different vehicles, but I have had 2 Jeeps and am on my second FX35 now.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The spy shot thread got me thinking a bit more about the changes coming specifically for the 2014 US CRD. Do we know which 4x4 systems and suspensions will be available for it? I'd like to see it get Quadra-Drive II (with QL) and the Off Road package II availability. Who knows, I guess the CRD could come complete with its own wheels/appearance package. Thanks!

In Europe the CRD gets the same options as the Hemi.
