Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

now if only we can get the details for the other markets .. Australia PLEASE.
Dealers here are now taking orders but cant give a price, specs or delivery ETA.. good but its a stab in the dark ordering one.. still not sure if Summit will be introduced here as "top of range" currently we get a summit spec'ed Overland.
ANY info on export models will be much appreciated JeepLanders

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

First of all, a massive thanks to Milous. I wasn't too sure about the new changes but i think they've definintely pulled it off. Especially the SRT!!

Now a question for all you guys at the plant (Milous, Chevy, and Marlon). As you guys have been assembling these beasties, do you know if the bumpers and trim on the SRT are directly interchangeable with the other models? In particular the Limited.

From first glance it looks like they are but obviously there could be some subtle changes.

Thanks guys!

Yes, thanks again Milous for all the work on this!! Just got back from a fire call (dude did 120mph in a VW Passat and launched it and survived), but I will be up to see the show!!

I believe you were thinking of Access Fund. Your membership will also make you eligible for the Affiliate Rewards Program. However, their membership is $35 instead of the $100 membership at Tread Lightly.

Here's the link: Home - Access Fund

P.S. Now that you just saved $65, it would only be right to spend some of it here:

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Very disappointed with the front end, makes the grand cherokee look like a lower model such as the compass, no more big bold grill, and those lights obviously don't fit, the rest of the car is excellent.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I huge thank you to Milous and the others who provided so much great information in this thread and finally on WK2Jeeps!

Now I'm just missing exterior pics of the Overland!

Jeep has developed an impressive new generation of the WK2, I think other companies would probably call this a new model! Like VW did it a couple of times when they did a significant facelift.

I will definetly get an Overland with the indigo interior and this is due to this forum. Without this forum I may have decided differently a while ago, but it was worth the wait!

My personal view is that the interior is great, a huge improvement over somthing I already liked a lot. And the exterior looks more modern but I have to say while the exterior grows on me (besides the smile) and I like it overall, I still did like the previous front better. But that's a personal view. However, I think the designers did a great job, all fits very well together, e.g. the grille works very well witrh the lower bumper. And as a package it's great!

You guys in Detroit, get ready for my order

I always loved that "Important from Detroit" slogan. I need to get a sticker for the Jeep .

They are not mentioning that it shuts down below certain speeds, could it be that they just didn't mention the stop and go feature?

One other thing I noted is that the lane assist is only mentioned in the packages and not in the saftey feature description. But I understood from your post that this would be a separate feature that warns you when you accidently leave your lane. Could you kindly clarify this

OMG Milous, I'm in love ! Definitely glad I held off ordering till now !
Now for the million dollar question, are there any major differences in the export version to Aus ? Other than the right hand steering

Also, any additional news on when the Australian dealers can place orders ?
PS can I share your pics with some mates ?

Cheers Beggsy

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I wonder if it's true that we (australia) are getting the Summit, which is equal to our current Overland, if the Overland will come in between the Limited and Summit price wise?

I always felt the current Overland to far out of my reach financially, but if the new Overland comes in at the $70k mark, I will be stoked!

.. but something tells me, they current pricing will remain, and the Summit will go for around the $85k mark.

Hopefully the former is true!
