Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Many thanks to all of you for the informative...and at times amusing...forum. I was planning a move to a '14 JGC in the summer but an accident in mid-Dec resulted in a totaled vehicle and accelerated the need for a replacement. Your guidance has been extremely valuable and I have now ordered an Overland in Max Steel with the V6 and the brown/indigo interior. A few options to personalize it and I am now waiting to receive the VON. It's been a novel experience to negotiate with a dealer while having more knowledge on my side of the conversation than his!

And this is a good policy...it's not just about not opening the kimono around product, but it's also a significant security risk. I'm sure that any of the properly vetted photos of manufacturing processes that are given to the press are gone over with a fine, fine look to insure that nothing in the picture that is released could compromise the plant and its workers for any reason.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have just placed my order for the Laredo diesel in Australia.

Do you know if I would get the 13 or 14 model?

Or would there be a big delay due to having to be right hand drive??

Paul
