Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have a 2012 Overland Hemi in Brilliant Black with color matched mirror caps and rear brow, but my perfect Jeep is a 2014 S-Limited (with gloss black in place of all of the chrome) and exterior color of Black Clear Coat (same as gloss black) and painted fender flares and lower fascias, with a leather dash (with white or silver stitching) and leather stitched middle console and leather upper door trim; if they actually make it (at some point)! I'm hoping..., and then I'll get a set of 20" polished wheels.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It surprises me how much they are sticking on the truck. I don't like chrome at all unless its on the rims!!! I have a black overland so it has chrome sticking out everywhere. It sucks because not only is it ugly but it doesn't wear well at all. Touch the stuff by the windows with your watch or a ring and it will leave a permanent mark/scratch.

Other than that I love my 2011. I'm curious about the 2014 headlights and I'd like to get better mileage but all the rest of that stuff is minor.

I'd much rather see a front electric LSD than anything else. The ABS traction control is TERRIBLE in snow mud or sand. It just makes a ton of noise, robs power and wears parts.

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.
Personally I only want the Limited over the Laredo for the HIDs. If I end up getting one I plan on removing the chrome strips on the door and getting the mirror caps painted/swaped with someone else. Not a fan of the chrome myself.

If I recall correctly, the chrome strips on the doors will be removed on the MY14 model - at least based on the spy-pics. I think that is a great improvement over the current model.

Looks much cleaner. I also noticed that the chrome mirror-housings are gone, too - if this is indeed how the production version is going to look like:

Not sure about that. The chrome strips are a heck of a lot easier to clean and wax around than 26 little letters.

Plus the chrome strips do act as a bit of a sacrificial strip to prevent a few door dings.

They said that's a picture of the export overland model! Hopefully its the same here as well, if not, "I'll take the export for $200, Alex"

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Exactly, most of my cars have rub strips to prevent door dings (can see in .sig). Agree would be better if color matched (blue car) or black (white car).

Incidently, both the Reattae and the Heep have the ding bar at the same height, just looks low on a tall vehicle.

I like the "new" black chrome wheels. Just not willing to pay 5k for black wheels and lettering...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It follows chrysler to get rid of the door strips. The LX cars came with them until and then eventually were offered without them. Of course, it was very popular to ditch them which I'm sure Chrysler saw.
