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.
We've built SEVERAL SRT8s. More than any other model I think. It shouldn't be hard to find one in final at all.

I don't think either of us are willing to get fired over some pictures.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You didn't deny a wheels change... Do they at least look better?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Considering there is a bet going on, I'm not denying nor confirming a change of wheels.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I went over there today and saw a few of em.. Apparently the shift WAS cancelled, but last I heard the news said we were supposed to report. I never got that "don't come" call. Hard to believe all that's happened..

Anyway, so since I was already there, I decided to ride over that way before I left. The bet was whether or not the '14 SRTs will retain the current wheel design. He was under the impression that they'd go back to something similar to the WK1 SRT design. I told him the current Black Chrome wheels would prolly be around for a while. Indeed, ALL the '14 SRTs I saw had those wheels on em. Have you seen any other design yet? I do suspect they'll unveil a new wheel with next years special edition models tho. There's just too much demand for something different. But not at initial launch. We all know how this industry works.

Lastly, I read in another thread that the '14 WK2 will have the Durango taillights. That's ABSOLUTELY FALSE people! Lol.. There's a slight resemblance, but they're really worlds apart. No way they can be mistaken. But yes, the headlights are stunning. New fascia and grille may grow on me, but I'm not impressed thus far. Personally I think the selling points will be the trans and new Nav. And don't knock the new console and gear selector too much ppl. It's actually kinda cool to me..

It'll be interesting as well to see how "clean" the Blu-Ray players will be integrated into the seats.

I got the call at 3:02PM. I did hear reports that more than a few people did not get called. However if you called the security office (7414), they would have told you.

The new fascia had to grow on me too. I really like the new Laredos. I've never been a fan of chrome and the increased amount on the Limited and Overland is... ehh...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Do models other than the srt and overland get the painted fender flares and lower plastics?

Not from what I've seen.. But as Marlon stated, the Laredo is MUCH improved! Doesn't look boring anymore. Like a rental car. (No offense to anyone.) It just seems to have its own character now, even in base trim.

And I agree abt the chrome.. Especially the Summit. It's getting excessive. But some will love it! Yet I suspect a lot of ppl will opt. for well equipped Laredo's.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The chrome is one of the reason why black won't be my color of choice when buying a summit. Mineral Grey can somehow compensate it better..
