I have those cup holders on my current vehicle. Unless you are trying to hide something, or keep a 'back up', they are not nearly as convenient as the ones in the console. When I first saw them in my Acura I got the impression it was more a numbers thing than a practical cup holder. But, it is a nice place to keep a 9mm handy while driving.

They are nice if you have a water bottle, bottle of soda or a gun lol. The cup holders are great with the three little pushy thingy's that hold a cup of coffee in place. Of course I'm the only one allowed to have beverages such as soda and coffee in my Jeep LOL.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I am curious why the strong interest in the diesel? I know it has lots of torque for towing. The better fuel mileage must be offset by the price of diesel.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I would say the diesel is only going to be practical for those who plan on keeping the CRD for a very long time and plan on doing some heavy duty and extensive towing. The price of the upcharge for the diesel is 2000g more than what I would have expected. I think everyone is on the same boat with that. If you only plan keeping this Jeep for for 3 or 4 years I would go with a gas engine. With the price of diesel at 4.19 a gallon in my area regular gas is 3.49 and 3.79 for premium gas. at the 4005 up charge diesel would be a worthless option and I'd opt for the V6 or V8. I see up to 28mpg (on a perfect day) on the highway with my current V6. I'm sure members with the V6 paired with the new 8spd will report higher numbers. What the gist is, if you don't plan on keeping this Jeep for a long time a petrol engine is the way to go. or you could get it for the status quo.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Jeep changed the rear for the V6 from a 3.09 to the 3.45. This sure helps with towing, but has an adverse effect on mileage. If they left the 3.09, I wonder how close the V6 would be to the crd, and if that would make the crd worth even less as a daily driver.

Good morning gentlemen. I just got to work in the snow storm we are starting to get here. I do have my coffee with me.
