Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Does Quadra-Lift have a smoother ride or does it just control the height?

I hate to bring this up. But, looking at past launches. I wouldn't be surprised that when orders are placed that everything will not be available to order.

Last year I spent many hours on the Dart boards. That whole launch was a cluster ****. Still many on that site patiently waiting to order an R/T, only to find out months later that it has been axed, and now replaced with a GT model. Body and interior colors were on restriction, racetrack tail lights N/A at launch. Even automatics weren't available at launch.

last year at NYIAS Ram had a Hemi 8 speed displayed. We are in the fourth or fifth month of 13 production and still they are not available.

2013 chrysler 300s for the first few weeks, only black or white were available to order.

I really hope I'm wrong here, and Chrysler gets these out to everyone quickly. I waited 16 weeks for my Challenger R/T, and it felt like the longest 4 months of my life. Good luck to everyone.

To Milious, Chevy, Marlon. Even though I'm going to put off getting another GC for a few more years. I really appreciate what you guys do for this community. Makes me proud to be a Mopar fan.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You realize that they are changing over next Friday-Monday for the 2014 model. No on has been able to order a 2013 model for models and dealers are running out. The production starts Jan 22nd. Dealers will need more than just black and white to sell these, it has already been stated that the colors will be available at launch.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Am I the only one who wanted a 2014 for the early part of 2013? 21 months of having a new model year was a huge plus.

On the 13's, I think the ground clearance on non Quadra Lift vehicles was 8.6", while normal clearance with Quadra Lift was eithe 8 or 8.1 inches, depending which info you find. So it is pretty likely they could raise the vehicle. If they just made changes in the undercarriage, the non QL would be up to 9.1"

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I cant wait to see pics of the new colors as well as to see how the Laredo front end looks... still trying to decide between Laredo X and the Limited. I don't think I am waiting for the CRD anymore as my current car is dying fast!

I'm not here looking for an argument. I have no doubt that production starts on the 22nd, and I don't believe I ever said it wasn't. What I said was that upon launch, there was equipment, models, and colors on restriction. And it possible that it could happen here. That's all.

Scott,
From your experience, would you expect the dealers, or Jeep Garage, to be able to make us aware of the restrictions before we place an order?

Scott, I ordered a 09 Challenger R/T 6 speed in May 08. Chrysler accepted my order, and my dealer sent me a VON, with a first week of Aug SPD. By early sept it was still in C status. My dealer notified me my that all 6 speeds was put on restriction. Turns out my car was finally built in the last week of sept, almost 2 months after its SPD.

The purpose of my original post was to let people know that stuff like this happens.

Your dealer should be able to once he places your order in the system. The computer will not let him choose a model, color, or option that's on your order. A good dealer should make you aware of this ASAP. However, if you read my above post a restriction could pop up even after your order was placed.

And you are correct! It hsppens a lot.

JeepGarage will know before anyone when certain parts or packages are on restriction. We will probably track about 1000 trucks or more if its like the 2011's!
