If you have the remote tailgate its not such a big loss.

Uncertain, I'm thinking just USA initially (and maybe Canada). Export info in that regard is hard to come by.

That's the 2nd Dodge color they are using (Granite & now Redline).
Dodge has sweet colors available (even an orange!!!!)
I made a simple graphic in the srt thread showing the srt colors yesterday - not sure how many of these are in the Overland, Summit lineup.



Header Orange or B5 Blue would be bad ass.

My wife wishes furious fucia as an option.

Don't mean this to be taken the wrong way, but how does a remote tailgate mitigate the loss of the flipper glass? I always use the flipper glass when I have too much gear in the back and I'm afraid things might fall out if I open the whole hatch, so I can just open the glass to remove a jacket or some snacks, etc. Am I missing something here? Thanks.

(Here's hoping they didn't try to save weight on CRD Limiteds...)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

As Milous said..it might only be on the SRT..unless you are planning on that.

I believe it's more towards a flat black, but with a bit of a sheen. Definitely not "glossy". Chrome inserts for the slots, honeycomb for the backing (same honeycomb style as washer area below headlamps except grille has open slots). Honeycomb also on lower grille area (left, right and center).

I think the confusion we are having is overland vs. summit. The Summit does have brown seats and brown dash. My frustration was that the overland has light frost beige seats w/ brown dash. The only other options are all black or indigo blue seats/brown dash.

I wish they would have made an option of brown seats/light frost beige dash on the overland... to match how the saddle was optioned in the past. It used to be saddle seats on overland or summit, and the difference was only in the dash.... overland was black dash, summit was saddle. Seems they are making you upgrade to summit now to get brown seats at all.

Guess I'll be going back to either an Overland or Summit since it sounds like they are deleting the flipper glass on the SRT.

Ha ha you must carry a lot of stuff! I just meant from convenience perspective. Ie open the tailgate on approach when your hands are full.

Milous,

The flipper glass would be a HUGE loss. I leave it open for my dog AND as a firefighter I take lots of gear at times for training and it falls out as previously mentioned. PLEASE tell me it still around on limited and/or summits...
