Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I was thinking CD player. But I believe they were optional in the early years.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Getting rid of the wheels....Or maybe the brakes.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You guys that guessed cigarette lighter, or ignition key.... Am I missing something, because last time I checked I dont believe either of those are on my 2012 Overland. Sure, you can insert the fobik if the battery is dead, but there is certainly no ignition key whatsoever. Cant say I recall seeing a cigarette lighter anywhere ;-)

I will say in recent years american car manufacturers have really stepped their games up with interiors. I dont care too much about Ford interiors still, but GM and Chrysler...absolutely!!

If the current colours hold true (those are the 2013 Overlant Summit colours), those will be the 4 colours available.

I'm pretty sure if 10 colors and 6 interior choices were available you would still find something to complain about. I can hear it now....why do they have to have so many choices, it's to hard to decide...
It's not whining, it's a factual statement, most other makers, if you are dropping anywhere from $50k-$80k you get more then 2 interior colour choices and 4 exterior colour choices.

If they are going to charge a premium price for their product, they need to step it up and deliver a premium product akin to what other makers are offering (this includes colour palette).

As for what's dropping from the Jeep in 2014, I'm going with the mechnical parking brake myself...

Hmm... The front page does say a new instrument cluster, so maybe it is something like the Range Rovers where it is a digital screen that replaces physical gauge needles with graphic simulation of needles.

Problem with that is that this particular new feature you just mentioned has already been "released" by Milous. There will be a 7" screen in the cluster.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

My best bet would be the parking-brake, too, but didn't Milous recently mentioned that he can't "see" any plans for an update on that mechanical brake?

I could be wrong though but I thought that this topic was discussed a couple of weeks ago?

The picture over here makes that look doubtful - http://www.worldcarfans.com/11208204...facelift-spied

It will be a combination of needles at the sides and a screen in the middle. Check out post #41 right here:

2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The cluster displayed is not a 100% match but it shows the set-up.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Here's more detailed info:

http://www.wk2jeeps.com/wk2_2014_features.htm

New 7-inch Vehicle Information Center

"Filling the gauge cluster in front of the driver is an available 7-inch, color, premium vehicle information screen, featuring a new customizable function that enables customers to personalize information inside the instrument cluster. Similar to the premium Uconnect Systems, select 7-inch instrument cluster background screens are branded with a Jeep theme. Jeep’s new information display is designed to visually communicate information, using graphics and text, quickly and easily.

The vehicle information display offers drivers a wide range of customization options, from a basic digital speed read out to specific vehicle status information. Operation of the display is clearly communicated to users with easy-to-understand icons and instructions. Using buttons on the steering wheel, drivers can customize the screen with as much or as little information as they desire. The system is intuitive and can be arranged for a variety of views. Up to three analog vehicle status gauges can be added to the display. The main screens found inside the instrument cluster menu are: digital speed, vehicle information and fuel economy, trip A information, trip B information, trailer-tow information, audio, stored messages and screen customization. Additionally, the four corners of the display can be customized to show information at a glance, including current fuel economy, outside temperature, time and compass direction."
