Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

There is a preliminary photo/drawing of the CD or bluray player setup floating around here in this thread. Not sure how many pages back it is. BTW, it is mounted in the center console, uses up half of the space.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So it can't be removed to free up space when not in use? That sucks that it would use up valuable space like that in the center console.

Not 100% sure b/c no one really knows much about it, but I would highly doubt you would be able to. It's the main reason we decided to skip on it. We have a child and would love to have a dvd player for him but I think I am going to give him and Ipad and load it up with videos.

^This. I wish they would have put it where the redundant HVAC controls are.

At MSRP? Because you can get a RRS supercharged at end of year discounts for $70K or less.

Ah, haven't noticed that before.

It would be interesting to know if the BluRay Player would actually include the features of the simple, optional CD-Player and therefore, would make it unnecessary to have both in the first place.

In other words, you could also use the BluRay player as "Remote CD-Player". Perhaps you could even watch DVDs/BluRays on the front screen while not in motion.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have a question about the capless fuel filler. What is going to keep dirt from collecting in the filler when driving off highway? I drive a lot of miles on dirt roads and with my current vehicle (not a Jeep) and the fuel filler cap area gets covered with dirt, but this is not a problem because the filler is covered by a cap. Looking at the picture in the owner's manual it looks like the dirt will settle in the filler and get into the tank when you fill up.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Pretty sure the fuel cap door has a cover built on it that covers the "capless filler" when shut. 2013 chargers and 300s have the same setup.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Did you know this, guys?

"Rear 1 and Rear 2 of the Video Entertainment System
can play two separate discs by utilizing the touchscreen
radio, DVD player and Blu-Ray Disc Player.."



However, I still have to figure out where the second disc-player goes....and honestly, I have no clue.

I found an indication that the 8.4 radio comes with a HDD, too.

Yes, absolutely, but the plan is limited to no more than 150 tows during the first 7 years/70,000 miles. After that there is a $99 fee for each tow from 151-300. After 300, the towing cost is the responsibility of the owner.
