Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Ugh I might take that off my order. Just what I need to slow down the process.
Has this question been answered?

Remote lock or unlock truck doors, start vehicle, and flash lights from any distance via the web or a smartphone application availability?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Srt8_hmi, your results may be different, but I modified my order (in part to remove the CD player) while my vehicle had no status, and the next day it moved to pre-release status, and the day after it move to D1 with an estimated delivery date the same as the two other people who also have a vehicle in D1 status, and who I presume never modified their order, although I can't be certain.

That doesn't necessarily mean it didn't cause some sort of delay or won't at some point, but just something to consider.

Did you check your order at Jeep.com/vots to make sure the change was made?

Edit: Oh, you said player, not screens. My bad.
I remember seeing the photo too and thought it was in that brochure (it was a color photo). Maybe they pulled it.

Anyway, would be nice of you could get the screens without a huge player. Anything with a hdmi would work and you would only need it when planning the long road trips with the kiddos.

Yes, and it was (it actually didn't have my vehicle in the system until a day or two after the change was made -- Milous' vehicle order tracking system had it before though ).

Before that I also asked the dealer to send me the updated order sheet to make sure -- because it sure would've sucked if the change wasn't made or the dealer messed something up and I didn't find out until after it was delivered.

A note about the Limited interior...
Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited models have a slight gold hue to their brushed aluminum look.

Totally agree with all the points above. Don't understand why they put this ugly shifter in there (just leave the current one and wire it to new tranny or move to a knob like RAM has). This one looks like a throttle control on a airplane. Just very out of place looking ...

Don't also get this plastic strip for the washer and especially the fact that you are stuck with a dud on Overland/loaded Limited as you CANNOT can get washers except for Summit. What was the problem with having them in a bumper just like the 11-13 MY had. If they went that route (locating washer inside headlight assembly) they should really be standard tied to the headlight meaning: you getting LED headlights, you getting washers as well.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

They did list it, at first, as late availability. But whether it is available now or later, it is still an app that has to be downloaded. I read that either in the users guide or owners manual.
