Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

New member here...I currently have a 2010 JCG Laredo. Got a sweet deal on it after smashing my 4-runner into some idiot that pulled out in front of me! I wasn't very impressed with it as the engine is weak and the tranny is a lug. However, getting this vehicle has led me to all my research on the upcoming diesel and 8-speed transmission version! I can't wait! Wondering what the color choices might be for the 2014 JCG? I'd like to see them expand a little like the Wranglers and use a deep orange or something a little more eye catching than all the grays (even though they look very nice).

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I always thought my favorite color combination was navy blue exterior and gray interior. The proliferation of tough, rugged brown leather pickup interiors has me reconsidering. If the Bark brown from the Laramie Longhorn were the replacement for New Saddle that would be interesting. My only concern would be how to handle the black trim. I'd actually like to see the current Overland Dark Frost Beige/Light Frost Beige change to have the seats in Dark Frost instead of light. The contrast with the door panels and console would probably look quite luxurious with the burl trim.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is there any chance that 2014 GC will have same UConnect Access system as Ram? This is very appealling: http://youtu.be/XLaAoSOrWO0?hd=1 Enyoj!

Absolutely. It's the new next gen UConnect 5.0 system.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Does anyone know whether Jeep will make any changes to the suspension? I have read some test in which editors criticize the ride over smaller imperfections of the roads. Not sure whether this is a valid point but maybe improving the suspension is a standard part of the midcycle changes.

Tire pressures make a huge difference in ride quality on the WK2.
I recently had a puncture repaired and the shop also adjusted the pressures on all tires. I could feel the harshness right away. They had the pressures between 37-38 psi instead of the recommended 36 psi for the 20" tires. Once corrected, the ride was back to smooth? I also noted a hint of vibration on braking and just re-torquing the lug nuts to specifications took it away. This was a front tire they had worked on and two lugs were way over tightened. BTW, this was NOT done at a Jeep dealership.
Likewise, when I first installed 18" winter tires, I assumed the same 36 psi as my 20's and the ride was so harsh until I realized the 18's only needed 33 psi.

none of this thread was exciting enough for you? LOL! This is about as exciting as it gets for a jeep reveal! Pics would be good I guess!
