I haven't seen any pics, all I have is this, taken word-for-word from the press release:

"Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo models are identified by its body-color grille and chrome headlight treatment. Body-color side mirrors and door handles are also Laredo exclusives*. All lower rocker trim is dark gray..."

(* referring to all non-SRT models)

I'll check again in the morning.. Maybe they read this thread and scratched the grey idea.. But again, I've seen ZERO body-color grilles on Laredo's up to this point. Maybe this changed over the break.. This could be done very easily (last minute), so I wouldn't be surprised if it did.

Marlon, you seen full body colored Laredo's in the past few days?

Interesting... maybe gray is just for export models? Or as you say maybe they read forum and nixed it!

Don't know on pricing yet. They usually don't announce that at the reveal, at least not detailed pricing. They *might* release it to dealers on Tuesday. I'll stay on top of it...

Hrm. Well I really hope it ends up looking good. Without much contrast with the rest of the vehicle it'll be interesting to see what it ends up looking like.

Still not sure why they couldn't have just kept the original design, but whatever.

Not sure yet, some pics will be posted here on JG, but since there are well over 100 images and dozens of pages of release materials, that is all been laid out on the WK2Jeeps.com web site, all of the 2014 links will be on the main index page (WK2Jeeps.com - 2011-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee menu).

If they read this forum you'd think they'd ditch the new front-end design and keep the 2011-2013 design.

Nah, in all seriousness I'm still hopeful I'll end up liking it.
