Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

How about some OEM tires that actually have some decent aggressive tread pattern to them rather than the cushy baby smooth stock tires? That would help as well!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I think I know what "tidbit" Milous is talking about. I just saw it today. Or maybe he's talking about something else?

Who knows, but what I discovered today, I was glad to see.

Would its description by any chance happen to start with a letter in the 2nd half of the alphabet?

Milous, Could it be something that a Range Rover or LR4 has that is to be introduced in the GC?

However, it is time to replace it, and frankly would have already if I did not hear that Jeep was coming out with the CRD. The new Touaregs are a disappointment in that they removed the low transfer case. Its not longer what the 1st generation to offer in capability. To answer your question. IN regards to your 02 v8 explorer, I would venture a guess that all engine options offered on this would probably out perform your 02 v8. A lot has changed in the last 10-12 years. First, the transmissions offer far more gears to allow even less powerful engines stay within the ideal rpm range for power. Second, modern engines offer direct injection, etc. putting out more power while using less displacement and ultimately fuel. I have not compared the figures, but I would venture a guess that the new penstar v6 probably puts out more power and torque than your current v8. It definitely puts out more power, in the worst case it might put out slightly less torque. That v8 has been around for a while, and I do not think they even offer it in any model anymore, including their trucks. Nevertheless, I would say, if you want to play it safe, get the v8 hemi which definitely outperforms your current model. If it were my choice, wait for the v6 diesel. You will get 30mpg and 400ft lbs of torque. You really cannot beat that.
Thanks for your input! I know my V8 only produces 240 horses so either the V6 or the Hemi would outperform my current engine. I usually keep my vehicles for at least 10 years so I need to make sure of the towing ability of my next vehicle. It's been a year now since I joined the JG Forum and have been very pleased with all the informative feedback. I'm looking forward to see what the 2014 GC looks like. I will probably test drive both the V6 & V8. Maybe, if I can convince the delear or even rent one for the weekend and tow my boat around to see what it would do would definately be a plus in making my decision.

Thanks everyone!!!
