I would agree with a previous poster, mechanical e-brake.

Flip-up rear glass? I use it all the time on my XK, would be bummed if they removed it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That's a tough one, my guess would be mechanical parking brake, or external whip antenna. The spy shots show a shark fin, so maybe the antenna has been fully integrated into a rear side window like export versions have had since the beginning of the WJ and the shark fin is satellite only.

It couldn't be the rear flipper glass, as that wasn't introduced till '96 as an option, think it was suppose to have originally been '95, but got delayed a year. Became standard on Limiteds and Orvis models in '97 and then standard on all models in '98.

Couldn't be that since there are two-wheel drive Grand Cherokees and Qudra-Trac I that has been standard on base V6 4wd Laredos since '05 doesn't have low range.

I am stumped, bet Milous is being tricky and it's probably something that functions behind the scenes that one doesn't notice or think of often.
