Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If you want to get an idea of nav controls/additional physical climate control knobs, look at the new 300.

I was actually a little shocked Chrysler didn't implement an electronic parking brake. A lot of cars have been switching over to them over the last 6 or so years.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

hahaha GCOverland, may be pushing it but its true. If order banks are opening in December or January for 2014's at the rate they are moving by June 2016 we'll be seeing the new body style! 3 years and 4 months... I'm counting down!

Rear floor pan and front rails remain relatively the same, and dash panel (firewall) has slight adjustments, but again, front floor pan is COMPLETELY different for '14. I assume this is mainly to accommodate the conflicting dimensions of the 8 spd tranny. Which brings me to my question; will the current pan used from MY '11-13 in both WK and WD become obsolete when the '14s begin full production, or will I now have 2 different pans to deal with, as the 5 spd is still used (mainly in the WDs)? The reason I ask is bc we bid for jobs again in the next couple months and I'm contemplating whether or not I wanna move to a different area. I've been building underbodies since 2010, and I'm kinda getting bored back here all by myself. Thx man..
chevyboy_711. I had asked about this earlier, and someone other than Milous answered "NO" when I asked about whether the floor would change. Now I'm very concerned. Do to some foot / ankle problems, I definitely need to sit in something before I buy it, and what you are saying indicates that I can't sit in a 2012/2013 and be confident that the 2014 will be the same. Milous, what say you about this?

Thanks very much in advance.

1. Turn signals in the mirrors have been all competitors.
2. Hitch is either standard or can be installed in a hidden form
3. Instead of the remote start put on CRD Autonomous Engine preheater. Webasto or Eberspacher. Other manufacturers have announced control of the phone as the GC MY'14.
4. For example LC Prado has Torsen differential

The closest competitor for the price Toyota LC Prado
This month, the price of GC increased. CRD Overland price is higher than the LC Prado Luxe. LC Prado is not sold in US. Based on it made ​​Lexus GX 460.
Grand wins only in the design and full air suspension. In LC Prado only the rear.

Now I drive a Ford Kuga CRD. In the original equipment detachable towbar, standalone preheater, automatic opening and closing of all windows, heated windscreen, double locking, turn signals in the mirrors, permanent four-wheel drive with Haldex (always sent back 10%). Yes, it's smaller, but costs half the price.

P.S. Want to change to a new car and expand pleasant moment, and not to put up with losses.

Yea, I read those earlier posts too, but didn't wanna be a dick and start correcting ppl. But anyway, I can tell you firsthand, amongst other things, there is indeed a different front floor for the MY '14 WKs. Which again, will be shared with the WDs when they switch over to the 8spd. (Maybe even beforehand.. Which is basically the gist of my question to Milous.) We've been running this new pan in all the pilots. Idk exactly what's gonna become of the old/current floor pan once the MY '14 WDs are launched 6 months later, but just judging bare metal to bare metal, visually the changes aren't noticeable if you don't know what you're looking for. Stud relocations, and Trans tunnel adjustments are pretty much the sum of it. However what that means to you in regard to physical comfort isnt discernible at this point. I've sat in both, and legroom feels the same, but saying "oh you'll be fine" seems a bit insensitive to me. But I hope you find that it does suit you just fine..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Sorry if this has been asked already, but will the diesel be offered on the "base" Laredo or will it only be offered on the X like the HEMI is on the 2011-2013?

I guess the next question would be if there's even going to be a Laredo X for 2014?

Also, since the metal floor pan design is changing (from previous posts) are we to assume that the 8 speed will be available with the diesel as well? I think it would only make sense. There are 2 8 speed transmissions, one is able to handle the torque and one is not. I would think they would be the same configurations.
