This has been covered before. No pictures from inside the plant.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

BMW sends you a video clip of your SUV as its being built, allows you to take a tour of the assembly line, test out their vehicles on a track and obstacle course, and pick your car up at the factory. It would be nice if Jeep did more outreach to its buyers. Rather than just advertising, Jeeps could help build the relationship between itself and customers by following BMWs example.

Chevrolet offers something similar to Corvette owners.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

This sucks. I have one dealer that has even bothered to get back to me on ordering. Thankfully they are willing to match the 2% under invoice, but I was hoping to try and get a better deal. Trying to get the rest of their fees so I can go down there and get my order placed.

Actually it's 3 cars.. GC, Durango, and Viper.. GM's Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly builds the Volt, Opel Volt (Ampera) , and the new Malibu I believe. But that plant just borders Detroit and is more inside Hamtramck.. They still call that plant "Poletown," in reference to the high Polish community in Hamtramck. Ironically they embrace the name and don't find it derogatory.. (I used to live over that way.)

But anyway, you're right.. Technically Chrysler is the only automaker that still produces cars in Detroit. But I think the "Motor City" name has stuck, bc of the history, and the high volume of vehicles still built in all of Michigan and the Midwest. All three pickups Ram, F150, and the GM twins come out of MI.

So we're still very much the Motor City. You ever looked at how many different states license plates are at the Dream Cruise!? Ppl come from all over to hang out with us for a day. .. Detroit is to cars, what Jack Daniels is to whiskey. ... Speaking of whiskey, I need to replenish my inventory.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Chevy builds the Volts but is anyone buying them? I'm not a Ford even though dollar for dollar the Mustang crushes the competition. Where are the Caddys built? I'm a huge fan of the V's

.
Can't really compare the axle ratio between two transmissions. The 8 speed should get better mileage on the highway as the 5th gear in the 5 speed is 0.83 while the 8th gear in the 8 speed is 0.667. Final gear ratio in the 5 speed (3.06*0.83) is 2.54 while the 8 speed (0.667*3.45) is 2.30. The much lower first gear in the 8 speed at 4.696 vs 3.59 (not including the 8 speeds lower axle ratio) should also greatly improve off the line performance.
