They've obviously added BluRay not for the hi def quality, but to increase the range of media you can use in the car. It would be annoying if all your kids' Spongebob and Wiggles movies were on BluRay and the car only had DVD. Do you really need 1080p in the back seat of your car? It's a Jeep, not a pimped out Escalade...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Deal breaker. My granddaughter has suffered long enought with that horrid screen on my '11.

Oh wait, I didn't order the rear entertainment. She has so many portable electronic gizmos it looks like your traveling with NASA.

Ok, we're good.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

We're not talking about the low res on the rear entertainment screens, I'm talking about the low res on the RA3/4.

Kids will be more impressed with a better screen than the difference between a Jeep and an Escalade.

But when I replace my back up cam with a high def one for getting a better look at the ladies in the vehicle behind me I want 1080p ! Who wants to look at pixelated boobies ? Oops was that too much ?

Thanks once again Milous. I guess we will have to wait and see if they use the same monitors, they look larger then 9" (to me) in your pic though, so one can hope.

Nice find torifile, that tear-down article was only posted 2 days ago. You probably hit the issues on the head with the 'gloves' comment.

Sometimes pixelated boobs can be a good thing. Depends on the boobs. I went to a nude beach one time when you wish you could have pixelated a few things, or at least used some of those swirly things.

Are we starved for news or what?
