Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The player pic doesn't seem to be in the latest brochure on the website. Maybe late availability means they might be working on that yet.

I'd be curious how the player is wired in and if a hdmi input is available for game consoles, etc.

Do you have a picture of said debacle? Lol

Owner's Manual page 327 shows the Blu-Ray player. On page 328, the manual states "Connect the video game console to the Auxiliary RCA/HDMI input jacks located on the side of each seat."

Woah that thing is huge! Seems to me like it's a complete afterthought. "Oh crap we forgot the player for the rear screens. Quick let's put it somewhere!!"

There are some things on the 2014 GC that seem rushed. Like the UGLY plastic honeycomb strip under the LED headlights, cheap looking buttons on the center console, out of place shifter, etc.

If, as I understand it, the shifter is nothing more than an electric switch, they could have just gone to push buttons.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The "knob" of the 2013 RAM would of been better than this joystick looking shifter they have in the 2014 GC. Sorry I just don't like it.

+1 Yup that DVD location is weird. And my Laredo E won't have to suffer with those headlights.

Will this be about the same size/location of the CD player?!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

CD player in the 2013 RAM (to get an idea of the size; although the Ram middle console is larger):
