Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Sounds like they gave the grill of the SRT an eggshell finish. Sorry, days of working the paint department at Damman Hardware.

Not always, but it's incredibly useful on road trips (with a few friends) or if you're helping someone move. Trunk Tetris can get pretty fun

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hmm, no SRT flipper-glass...so THAT'S why they increased towing capacity.

Maybe the 2014 SRT comes with a free trailer?

Thanks. Will you get a 2014+ WK2 SRT?

I'm sad to hear this is gone for the sake of weight, yet a headlight washer system survives.
How any SRT's are covered in road grime and need to be cleaned? Not many!

So they're doing a "Super Bee" version of the Jeep? Cloth interior to boot..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have been following this thread for weeks...like the rest of the group...but registered today so that I could post my thanks for all the helpful info. Lost my vehicle in an accident on 12/22. Now borrowing a car while I wait for the 2014 GC release. Following this thread has been invaluable in prepping to place my order. Many thanks to all.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Kinda crazy the rear window wouldnt be able to be opened.... I did enjoy the flipper to pack more gear.

Hopefully it's gone on just the SRT.

That flipper glass is super handy for not only just reaching to grab/stow things, but also to make sure that when you open the back up all the glass jars or whatever don't come tumbling out.

It's also super handy when transporting things like 2x4's and the like that tend to be too long to fit with the rear door closed.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Going to go out on a limb here and say that I do not see the little handle pull that would normally be located beneath the wiper.
