Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

According to the Features PDF, the Limited doesn't have a Standard speaker set. LOL

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks for all the feedback on the diesel, guys. Getting slammed at work right now but will read up on it later today.

2.5% increase? No way! I wouldn't settle for anything less than a 2.5% price decrease.
Knowing they made the HiD headlights and Dual Panel sunroof an option now, I would hope the price came down a little or the package isn't super expensive.

That would be ridiculously annoying and not something I would put up with, even if this motor's emissions were so clean that it cleaned the air around it. I'm trying to decide whether I should hold out for the diesel or not, but I can't even find out about something like this with a test drive - can anyone with real world knowledge (with a recent, comparable diesel engine) share their thoughts? Thanks!

(Vanguard, not saying your knowledge isn't real world - it's just not clear to me how long ago you had this bad experience with diesels and if things might have changed since then.)
I (well the wife does) drive a 2011 E350 diesel MB car. It does not the DPF, only the urea which is injected much like I believe the Jeep will have. Never an issue such as Vanguard spoke about and I personally am a big fan of diesel engines. I believe alot of peoples problems have come from putting improper diesel in the newer engines. All new diesels require ULSD or 15/ppm sulfur content. The old diesel was 1000/ppm which if put in a modern diesel would cause the DPF to fire more often. Read up more on the modern diesel and maintain it and you will be very happy to own one. I have been since 2005 and will continue to buy diesel including this new Overland CRD I will be getting this summer for the wife.

I think you might be right, although there's the possibility that it's Pacific Blue I guess.

Too bad it doesn't look like that in real life.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Question for you Milous, in your press release it shows that the All-weather package includes "two-speed transfer case with low-range", while the ORAI package includes "two-speed on-demand transfer case". Is the AW package's transfer case also on-demand, or...?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Wasn't the reveal supposed to be available somewhere after the actual live event? On the left coast and just could not get up to watch it live.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Looks like a Laredo E for me, to get some of the options I want. What makes a Laredo an E anyway. Features pdf says late availability for the 8.4" screen, any idea how late?

That intro is goosebump inducing, much like the one they came out with back in 2011.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If anyone hasn't checked it out, there is a Jeep Grand Cherokee App for the IPad. It has been updated to include the 2014 as well.
