Toyota isn't part of the "Big 3" and didn't get any money, neither did Ford.

In Australia Sno not US. They give them all incentives to keep local manufacturing alive, or for development of new engines etc

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

We got off to a slow start but by the time the shift ended, I think we got somewhere around 450 built! Getting better and better.

I say two more weeks and things will start looking more "normal".

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Marlon- It seems that the only orders on Milous tracking that finally hit D1 were everything BUT Summits. Are you seeing a issue with Summits coming out of the factory? I figured Customer order Jeeps would take priority over non orders. I guess my logic is wrong.

Indeed. I just hope these first builds aren't of lesser quality...

If there are left over parts when a car comes off the line, do you throw them in the trunk in case the customer figures out where they go, later on?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The tire and wheel PDF gives some hope for a tire that is rated on/off road.
Listed for 2014 Overland;
P265/60R18
Michelin BSW on/off road All Season
(included with Off Road Adventure II Group)

Listed for 11-13 Laredo, Limited, Overland;
P265/60R18
Michelin OWL on/off road
(included with Off Road Adventure I Group)

Listed for 11-14 Laredo, Limited;
P265/60R18
Michelin Latitude Tour BSW All Season
(included with 2011-2013 Laredo X package)
(included with 2012-1013 Altitude Editions)
(included with 2014 Laredo 18" Wheel & Radio Group)


In another listing it showed the Latitude Tour, even for the off road package. I wish they actually identified the on/off road tire beyond the brand.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm planning on negotiating a swap to the Michelin LTX A/T with the dealer, the tours are reportedly horrible in snow per the reviews on tire rack.
