I have the emails from back then to the different sales guys and I'm going to send them a friendly "I told you so" email and see what they say.

HA HA!

Originally the 8 speed was slated to be introduced with the 2013 JGC which came out in July... but as we all know now it was pushed off to the 2014s.
Yup! MY2013 upgrade in Aug 2012 became rumors of a Jan/Feb 2013 launch of a 2014 model, which became a March 2014 date for when cars are actually arriving on lots, which became "oh hold up, the diesel won't be here til May", which became...our shared plight.

Clearly, it's not anyone's fault other than my own that my expectations weren't "met". They probably were optimistic/unrealistic to begin with. As much as I want the car ASAP, I twice over want Jeep (or any car company I'm buying from) to take their time working out the kinks and making sure it's ready for prime time before sending it out. I'm glad to hear from the guys on the floor that they take their jobs so seriously and I'm happy for them that they're finally getting their due praise for the work they've been doing for so many months while we sit here on our butts and twiddle our thumbs and ask "are we there yet? are we there yet?"

To clarify:

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 grilleís 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.

--Milous
So they both have painted arch moldings but the Summits' are just like the SRT model?? Does that mean the Overlands' are like the previous style just painted? I love the wide look on the SRT. Looks like door mouldings have been replaced on atleast the Limited models and up as well.

They'll probably laugh and say, "another infantile nut job here".

That would be my guess, as they will probably be held for QC for up to a month.

It's pretty badass if you must know. Is it worth $2k?? I'd say yes because it's done right by the fellas at JNAP and has amazing clarity fr an OEM set up.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The grey moldings are shown on this picture, just to the right of the wheel, appears as though it has a mineral grey look.
