Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I would think that with a 7" VIC, it would more closely resemble the new Ram 1500 VIC:

The 3.0 crd VM motor has been in production at the Detroit plant for quite a while already, but have just been sold overseas. The ZF 8 speed will now be added to the turbodiesel for 2013.

I'm also going to look at the 2013 Touareg R, coming stateside this fall. 4.2L 8 cylinder Audi turbo deisel, 380 hp and a monstrous 630 lb/ft torque, more than the previous 10 cyl. My cousin is a VW dealer, so can get one at his cost.

It was stated somewhere earlier in this thread that none of the 2013 models will have an 8 speed transmission. Maybe the CRD will come as a 2013 with the 5 speed. Even if you can get the Touareg R at dealer cost it will be a lot more than the Jeep....but then again they are a totally different class of vehicle. The Touareg TDI and Grand Cherokee CRD would be a more fair comparison.

IMO, the VIC of the Ram displayed in that image is less than 7"..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

right! The SRT 7" is not in the Ram. Have a look at the SRT Viper specs and pics for the SRT 7" screen.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I hope the SRT Jeep screen has the shift light like the Viper....LOL. I doubt it though since the SRt jeep is an auto box.

I hope they don't put the dial shifter in the Jeep like the new 2013 Ram with the 8 spd trans.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

This is a little off topic, but does anyone know anything about the availability of the lifetime warranty on the CRD. That would make me much more likely to buy the jeep CRD. Without it I might have to go with the V6. The presence of a diesel engine with expensive parts imported from europe might be a turn off; especially considering the trouble a lot of other carmakers have been having with american diesel in their engines.
