Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous, lets clarify for the confused.. Did you too say that '14s would be on dealer lots before the end of Q1?

I'm not so interested in being right, I'm just trying to see if we're looking at this through the same lense..

I have one on my '01 GC, it works off of the driver side temperature setting. At least that is how they did it back in the day.

Laredo and limited - gray plastic (same as 2011-13)
Overland and Summit - body color painted moldings
That is what people are saying

I just wanted to make my stance clear

Not quite.

Laredo and Limited - gray plastic moldings
Overland - body color painted moldings
Summit - body color painted fender flares, chrome and gray painted moldings.

Depending on the definition of "moldings". I'm meaning lower fascias when I type "moldings".

I would say "definitely", barring any last minute issues of course. I would think that they will start to arrive to some dealers in late February. SRT models a couple/few weeks after that.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous, You are the Man! Scott, you are also the man for having, hands down, the best Jeep forum, or any automotive forum for that matter. Im still rocking my 08 WK for now, but the look of the 2014 is starting to grow on me from certain angles. Im also digging the 10A Rubicon.

I have a time issue so I really need to see if I hunt down a '13 with the specs I want, wait and pick one from dealers first allotment or order one. I MUST have a new car no later than mid March. Any one have any idea?

I really have to thank Milous, Scott, Chevy, Marlon and all the other posters on this board. The timing for me couldn't be tighter. I'd really like a '14 and haven't been able to locate a '13 that I want anywhere in Florida yet.
Pat or Milous can probably answer this - I don't know if the first deliveries to a dealer are what the dealer orders on Tuesday or something chosen by Jeep.

My dealer told me to tell him what I probably want before the order banks open and they will order it as part of their initial allocation. That doesn't matter now that I decided on a CRD. It won't come before May, and the dealer might not even be able to order a CRD on Tuesday.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Ceramic glow plugs. Grr. The versions in the 1.9 PD TDI like to break off when you change them (reason I am ticked about this is there are only so many GP manufacturers...).

Other highlights on the 3.0 from Allpar

-2 gallon oil capacity (Not sure of the spec/interval yet, still hunting that down...)
-Timing Chain (usually considered superior to a belt setup)

I am wondering what fuel pump is attached to that engine. Bosch typically does all the pumps out there and the one spec'ed for the 2.0 TDI in the Jetta has been eating itself (and causing the ENTIRE fuel system to be replaced at $8k per incident, mostly warranty covered so far). The 2.0 TDI in the Passat has had a handful of pumps eat themselves but nearly every one was due to misfueling with Gas.

Depending on the definition of "moldings". I'm meaning lower fascias when I type "moldings".
To clarify:

Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo models are identified by its body-color grille and chrome headlight
treatment. Body-color side mirrors and door handles are also Laredo exclusives. All lower rocker trim is
dark gray. Standard wheels are five-spoke 17-inch aluminum wheels painted Tech Silver. Available
aluminum 18-inch wheels with a twin five-spoke design are painted Satin Silver. The rear fascia
features the new signature tail lamp design along with dark gray lower trim and a single chrome
exhaust outlet.

Grand Cherokee Limited models keep the dark gray lower rocker trim and add a body-color grille with
chrome grille slot frames and headlight treatment. Bi-xenon headlamps with Grand Cherokee’s
signature LED running lights are available. Chrome trim outlines the lower fascia opening and skid
plate. The wheels on Limited are aluminum 18-inch with a twin five-spoke design and are finished in
Satin Chrome. Polished 20-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels with Mineral Gray-painted pockets are
optional. The Limited’s rear fascia features a chrome trimmed bumper sill protector and dual chrome
exhaust outlets.

All Limited (and Overland and Summit) models feature standard chrome side mirrors and door handles.

Grand Cherokee Overland models feature bi-xenon HID headlamps with signature LED daytime
running lights, chrome tow hooks in the lower fascia and body-color lower fascia trim. The body-color
trim carries over to the wheel arches and surround the polished 20-inch five-spoke polished aluminum
wheels with Mineral Gray-painted pockets. The lower rocker panels and trim on the rear fascia also
become body color.

The new luxurious Grand Cherokee Summit model tops the range and receives many unique styling
cues. The bi-xenon HID signature headlamps are adaptive, and swivel in conjunction with the steering
wheel. This improves visibility around bends and turns and is a brand new safety feature for Grand
Cherokee. High-pressure headlamp washers are standard.

Between the lamps is a chrome finish on the upper grille’s mesh pattern.
The entire lower fascia is unique and features a pronounced chrome trim similar in design to the Grand
Cherokee SRT model. The front bumper is larger and features a slimmer opening for the projector fog
lamps compared with other models. The lower lip is a contrasting dark gray. Larger, body-color wheel
arch moldings are similar to the SRT model, but the Summit has a dark gray lower rocker trim panel
with a chrome strip that runs along the top edge of the rocker. This chrome accent helps to visually
lengthen the side view of the new Grand Cherokee. Satin clear coat 20-inch aluminum wheels are a
unique-to-Summit twin five-spoke design.

The rear fascia is dominated by dual rectangular exhaust outlets and dark gray lower body cladding.
These features are unique to Summit models, as is a new Summit badge on the lower right side of the
tailgate.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

145 members viewing, and 131 guests... Guess we know now who some of these "guests" have been.

Honestly Milous, you don't strike me as the kinda guy who cares all that much about being cited. By that I mean, of course you deserve the respect your work merits, but when ppl don't cite you, anyone in the Jeep community knows that Milous prolly had a hand in the research..

It's like when a guy loses a race down the street to his young son.. Anyone paying attn. will know he let him win. It goes without saying... And when solid Jeep info comes out, we all know Milous was somewhere, Nottsure Weir, with big pots of coffee in the weeks/months prior, digging it all up.

Edit: Did I spell Wair wrong?.. Didn't it used to have an E?

Right. BUT, and I know this question might want to make you pull your hair out, will this include special orders or is this just pre assigned dealer allotment?
