Are AWY and/or AWB available on an Overland with the V6?

I feel like I read much earlier in the thread that you'd have to get the CRD or V8 in order to get those 2 packages.
You can get AWY but it won't include Quadra-Drive II (limited slip rear diff) as it is not available on the Pentastar which I'm assuming is the reason for the price difference listed $295 vs $995.

I have to be careful driving them in the plant. It's so easy to break the tires loose with it and the 6.4L.
Can you share your experiences a little more Marlon? The price doesn't bother me too much, but I'm still debating CRD vs. HEMI... one of my main concerns is that I live in Colorado and travel to the mountains frequently, and when i get the jeep loaded with 4 people and a ton of gear, it gets rather bogged down. I HATE when my Jeep downshifts a zillion times trying to get up through the pass....

If money wasn't too much of a factor, do you think the CRD is worth it? Considering performance, maitenance, reliability, etc?

That's the way I read it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm a sucker for turbocharged engines, gas or diesel, so I guess you could say that I am biased. So I'm the wrong person to ask. My Dart is my 2nd turbo.

I am off today, delivering beer to my mouth.

The diesel will be much less likely to downshift due to the torque curve.

Why not go test drive a used (broken in) 2011+ Touareg TDI? They have a 3.0 diesel/8 speed and weigh about 5k lbs. Should give you a good idea of how the CRD will pull. I have a 2011 and it pulls like a freight train.

on Touareg it is $3500 option and we all know German cars are overpriced.

If money wasn't an issue I think it would be worth it. In your case if you are in CO (altitude) it would probably beat Hemi performance wise just because it has turbo while doing it with much better MPG.

For me money is an issue and I live at sea level.
