The Summit also has what looks like a cover over those unsightly dirty bits, a.k.a. receiver hitch, wiring connectors. At least that's what it looks like in the press released photos, or there is not a hitch on that one.

I was wondering about this, too...

Summit comes standard with tow group 4. Must be some kind of cover over it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Overland Does Quadra drive 2 automatically come with the Overland when you order a v8 or is it optional? I thought for the model year '13, I once was going to order a v8 and the form said I had to order quadra drive 2 with a v8. Also, does anyone know how important the Quadra drive 2 is for normal street driving ? Thank u

I saw the Max Steel at a dealership and it looked about the same as Black but perhaps I am wrong. Your thoughts...

It is all lighting. MS looks black at times, sunlight shows glints of blue and purple, most of the time it looks like a dark charcoal gray.

Get the dealership to take it outside on a sunny day

Lankness truly describes the color. Go do a google image search for "jeep maximum steel"... it is a complex color when well illuminated with bright sunlight but certainly is most of the time comparable to a dark charcoal gray. I wish they had more blue tones in it but I still think it is an excellent color.

QD2 is not important for street driving. It adds a limited slip differential on the rear axle, which is only really necessary in off-road conditions. I wouldn't worry about it if you don't plan to go off road. However, if off roading is a consideration, I've heard that QD2 is one of the best 4WD systems ever made, by any manufacturer. Personally, I wouldn't buy a JGC without it, but I like the ability to explore off road.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks ! Now The question is if qd 2 automatically comes with the V8 option as I believe it did on the '13 model or is it an option?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

OK for the 1,000,000,001 (that's one billion and one) the max steel in real life is BLACK. It looks black almost all the time except in sunlight it looks charcoal with some flecks of blue, purple, yellow, green, etc...much like this.

I think you have to order ORA II to get it. And it is nice for street driving if you want to be able to power slide in slippery conditions, :-)

The order sheet from my dealer shows you can order the Quadra Drive II separate from the ORA II. I am planning to place an order today for a Deep Cherry Red Overland with black interior and with Quadra Drive II.
