The Line®* lol
Is the quality better than the Dart? I was impressed by the paint I saw on one at the dealership.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm still amazed by the build quality of my own car. Makes my Jeep look like a Hyundai.

It's one thing looking at build quality at work, it's another to actually see and pay attention to it.

I'd be a perfect fit for Quality, but I don't wanna work the line anymore. I like my current job, actually. I work alone, supervisor doesn't bother me... at all... and I get to listen to whatever music *I* want to listen to without anyone else interrupting me and asking "What is that?"

BTW: I think I've stopped for gas in Troy, OH before.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Troy is a good stopping point from the Motor City. I did notice that the body gaps on the Darts are way tighter than I had on my Chargers a few years back. Hopefully it takes off for them like originally planned since dealers have stock now.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Motor City. I've always thought it was hilarious that some people still call us that. In Detroit proper (as in city limits), only two vehicles are produced here.

We all know what those two vehicles those are.

We had QC in the past, but the dedicated department is new.
Is that new for 2014 or has it been in place for a little bit already?

Also: 600 WKs and WDs, still with the same roughly 8:2 WK:WD ratio mentioned a couple days ago?

The 2 hottest vehicles they offer right? I usually call it Detroit what?! You're still the state up north to us Bucks.

The ratio constantly changes. I think it actually changed later that day. It's so hard for me to say as like I said, I do not work on the line. I deliver parts.

The QC jobs have been in place for some years, heck I don't know how long, but the crew has recently been separated and strengthened. I started off back in 2010 on a QC job. Underbody quality checks, wiring harnesses and heat shields.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I am considering getting the 2014 overland with the hemi (I put about 8k miles per year so mpg is not a major issue). I noticed that the ram 1500 with the hemi is rated at 395hp while the GC is rated at 360hp. Will the GC get a bump with the hemi engine? If not, anyone know what the difference is between the two engines?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

How about some pics of them coming off of the line? Or is that a no-no? Would be cool to see that with some in different colors and models.
