Milous updates the first post of this thread when he has new solid confirmed info. See below that I copied and pasted......

- New: 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters (8HP45 w/3.6L)

- New: 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters (8HP70 w/3.0L diesel, 5.7L and 6.4L)

Thank you. I did read that but that was awhile back so I was just wondering if there was any update on the update.
You guys sure are on top of things!

I think I'll be ordering one of these machines!

I guess the next question would be if there's even going to be a Laredo X for 2014?
There will be a Laredo X (it's also possible they could change the "X" to something else although I have not seen any evidence of that). As far as the diesel don't know yet if it will be offered on the base Laredo or of X package will be required.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

My intent isn't to get this thread off topic, since the 2014 GC is definitely high on my list for purchase, but do we have even the slightest clue whether the 2014 Durango or Grand Wagoneer will be offered with a diesel?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Any predictions on what colors will be available for 2014? I'm aware of the alpine white & the black but does anyone think they will have a few more actual "color" options?

Thx.

JWS360 will become famous soon enough
How long will there be a 2014 model year?

Curious-- If the 2014s come out in Jan-Feb or so will we see a roughly 18 month model year, assuming any 2015 model comes out in the Fall of 2014 as one may expect?

Seems like an odd situation to have a 2014 come out in the first months of 2013. Either way, I'd wait until at least the Fall of 2013 to let at least some of the initial kinks be worked out.

Yes, ~18 mo model year. They did this for the 2004 models, intro'd them in January 2003 and the 2005 models came out 18 months later in July 2004.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous, for the MY14 SRT8's, will there be other interior colors aside from the standard black?

Unless you hate black interiors... ...which a certain percentage of vehicle buyers do.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

There's no acceptable reason why someone driving a $16k Dodge Dart has the ability to customize their vehicle "over 100,000 ways," yet someone who pays 4x as much for an SRT8 GC has no real choices other than the exterior color. One can cost you less than $200 a mo, while the other can cost in excess of $200 a week! (Talk abt "illegitimate" rape. smh..) At least let me choose what color seats I wanna sit my behind on after you screw me!
