Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It's fine to want to add all the little features to the GC, but then when it costs 60-70K, everyone will say its not worth it because it's still a Chrysler product.

Although I get what your saying about the performance version of SUV's, but really it is a good concept. Some people like high performance vehicles, but also want the utility and size of an SUV. So instead of having multiple vehicles taking up more space, and paying more car insurance and double maintenance etc etc, why not just get it all in one package??

Someone could say the same thing about your M5!! Why would you want to go fast in a big heavy four door sedan? If I want to go fast, I just drive my C6 Z06 ;-)

Then people should say that about KIA and Hyundai which both have had a terrible start in the US but look at them now. They are pushing even further upmarket with every new design. So why can't Chrysler, who has a vast and innovative history.

The new Ford Explorer has power folding third row seats!

Chrysler brings exclusive products at a more affordable price. They can do it!

Oh and nobody said they had to buy it. That's why its called optional which mostly all cars have options not this it the car and this is the price.

Hello Milous,
Could you please tell me if this feature would be availabe on the "Limited" 2014 diesel model for Australia? I assume it would be standard on the Overland but would it be an option on the Limited in say a "luxury" package??

Thanks Milous

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I wonder what the colors will be for 2014? Or will they pretty much keep the same colors from 2013.
My husband is going to wait until the 2014's are out to check them out and test drive one of them, as well as a wrangler umlimted.

If he weret to get a GC.......the color fav's are maximum steel, mineral grey, true blue, black forest green, and then i guess black. If they keep those colors that would be awesome! and maybe add some new ones.....

I've read in previous posts that the colors will be the same (unfortunately). The maximum steel actually looks black in person so it's not as nice in my opinion as the pictures online are. If you go up to the summit you can get a rugged brown one.

About a month ago now.. I was over that way a few weeks ago checking on mine, and it was in the repair hole with one of those fancy cloth covers on it. A friend of mine who's a TL on Final said they've only done that one. You gotta remember, '14 WDs are still a ways away, so I don't imagine we'll be doing too many more until these '14 WKs are launched. Pilot WDs will pick up around then, and ppl will start spotting em on the streets.

Hey do me a favor and let me know when you see a '14 WK SRT8 over there, so I can come check it out. I've got a bet with a guy over here as to what the wheels are gonna look like.

I believe it's going to be available only on the Overland Summit and SRT models, I'll post back if I hear differently.

Damm!! I was kind of hoping that they would at least offer it in the Limited in a luxury (safety) package.

Thanks for your input though Milous! Much appreciated!
