Hoping my dealer down here in South Florida gets them late Feb so I can scoop one up...if it's going to be April I may need to go in another direction.
You could probably order one Tuesday.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If you order one youre looking at 8 weeks right? and you have to purchase, no chance at a lease, rebates or incentives? Please correct me if im wrong...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is it me, or do the skid plates look bigger this time round?

I don't know about leasing but you still would be eligible for rebates at the time of delivery. I can't see any rebates or incentives on the new GC for some time. They will be flying off the lots just as fast as Chevy and Marlon can get them there.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous,

First of all, thanks for the pics! Really nice!

I was looking at the headlamps and noticed that the led color is yellowish rather than white/blue like was showing in your previous pic. Why this difference?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Very nice looking inside and out! The redesign makes the 2013 look almost dated... The new front end looks beautiful and badass in the right proportions.

Anyone else notice the amount of ground clearance the Limited has in a few of those rock shelf shots? I take it that must be the new and improved quadralift at max height.

Not sure how long you've been waiting overall, but I've been waiting to buy a new car since January of LAST year. 13 months and counting. It'll be closer to a year and a half by the time I have one in my driveway. This thing can't come soon enough!

I lemoned my 335i because of recurring fuel pump issues and I've been patiently waiting for the 8-speed GC ever since (I wanted to move to an SUV anyway). I never thought I'd see the next 20,000 miles of my Acura Integra that was collecting dust in my garage but MAN am I thankful I held onto this thing so it could hold me over until the '14 launch. As much as I "love" my Integra (first car sentimentality, the hatchback is really versatile for a car so small), I can't wait to get this Jeep!

EDIT: Meant to add "as I'm sure many others on this forum have been waiting a long time too! I'm by no means the only one who's waited this long (but I am curious if anyone's been holding out for this car since even before Jan / Feb 2012)."

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks for all the hard work Milous, even though it was spoiled. Everyone here appreciates it.

So can I go to bed now or are you going to release SRT pics at midnight?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

2014 3.0L CRD (North America)

The new, 50-state legal, clean 3.0-liter EcoDiesel engine produces low CO2 emissions. MultiJet II
common-rail injection and Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) help this new engine achieve these
results.

The 24-valve, dual-overhead-cam engine features a block and bed plate crafted from strong compacted
graphite iron (CGI), which contributes to stiffness without penalizing performance.
The clean 3.0-liter EcoDieselís 60-degree cylinder banks enable more efficient packaging, while
effectively balancing the potent inertia generated by torque-rich diesels.

Driver and passengers alike can expect a smooth, quiet ride on any journey. The new engineís 1-4-2-5-
3-6 firing order helps manage rotation so neatly it needs no balance shaft to deliver the level of
refinement for which the Grand Cherokee is known.

Further contributing to quieter performance, as well as optimal fuel economy and emissions reduction,
is the clean dieselís common-rail fuel-injection system. Its 29,000-psi (2,000-bar) pressure is
unmatched by any solenoid-based system.

Swirl-control intake ports benefit from a variable-geometry turbocharger and intercooler that ensure the
required engine response, whether merging on-road or surging off-road.

Temperature extremes are also addressed. The new engineís turbo is water-cooled to handle searing
heat, while low-voltage ceramic glow plugs accommodate quicker cold-weather starts.

Other key features and benefits include:

- Finger-follower actuated valves with hydraulic adjusters
- Chain-driven camshafts
- Piston-cooling oil jets
- Water-cooled exhaust-gas recirculation (EGR) for Tier II, Bin 5 and ULEV II compliance
- B5 biofuel compatibility
- 50-state emission compliance

Availability: Optional on Limited, Overland and Summit
