Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Sorry Chevy, but I haven't been paying much attention to the 2014s lately. My current obsession is wondering why my Dart is still in D1 status, and making plans for this house I'm going to probably regrettably purchase.

Oh well, I can always sell or rent the place right?

I wonder how that grille would look painted mineral gray (or a similar color), while leaving the chrome inlets untouched? I really dig the way the grille looks on the Bright White 2013 Trailhawk. If I were to get a Bright White 2013 I'd strongly consider swapping the chrome grille with the mineral gray Trailhawk grille -- I think that would probably be enough to make me favor the Bright White to the Deep Cherry Red -- but obviously since the Trailhawk hasn't been announced for 2014, I'd have to get the 2014 grille painted myself... but that's if I thought it would look good to do so.

here is some trivia to tied to over;

Chrysler 2012 Jeep sales topped 700,000 worldwide for first time
Posted: Wednesday, 09 January 2013 02:58PM
DETROIT (Reuters) - Chrysler Group LLC's Jeep brand sold more than 700,000 vehicles worldwide for the first time in 2012, an increase of 19 percent from the previous year, Chrysler said on Wednesday.

Mike Manley, head of the Jeep brand, said he expects 2013 sales to continue to climb as upgraded versions of Jeep's biggest seller Grand Cherokee, as well as a new midsize Jeep SUV, are introduced.

Jeep's 2012 sales of 701,626 topped the previous global high sales mark of 675,494 set in 1999.

Among Chrysler's four main brands, Jeep is the one that has the most global reach.

The Grand Cherokee full-sized SUV, the compact SUV Compass, and the Wrangler, are the three nameplates of Jeep that are most aggressively marketed outside Jeep's North American base.

Sales of the Grand Cherokee rose 26 percent at 223,196 worldwide. Compass sales rose 20 percent at 103,321, and Wrangler sales rose 16 percent at 194,142.

Sales in Asia in 2012 rose 94 percent, were up 29 percent in Europe and up 18 percent in Latin America. Jeep's sales were up 13 percent in the United States at 474,131.

The new midsize Jeep SUV will replace the Jeep Liberty in the brand's lineup.

In the United States, Chrysler's top-selling brand last year was Dodge, which sold 825,917 vehicles, up 16.5 percent.

Correct, the Harman system is ONLY available in the Summit (Standard) or the SRT (Optional).

Milous, may I ask does the Summit also have the chrome tow hooks?

Second question: In your page 1 update it says "- New: Headlamps with LED DRL's (Limited/Overland/SRT8)". Is it a typo that the Summit isn't included, or does the Summit have different headlamps?

Finally, my standard question: Any news on France getting the Summit model this year?
