Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hello all...I am very new to the forum here so please let me know if this post is out of place. I am waiting to buy my first Jeep Grand Cherokee and currently torn between the 2013 Overland and waiting for a 2014 Limited. I am seeing 2013 Overlands for 40k which will be less then the 2014 Limited I was planning on. This has thrown a wrench into my thoughts. I was hoping to keep my purchase price as close to $40K as I can. 2013 Overland or 2014 Limited? I would appreciate any and all opinions.
Thanks!

Welcome to the forum. Me personally, I would wait for the '14. Too many upgrades not too. Just my opinion.

If you go easy on the options you can definitely get a '14 Limited 4x4 V6 for under $40K. Might have to shop dealerships pretty hard, but it's doable. You'll be getting a better transmission in the '14, as well as better radio (get the RA4).

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

For those of you who want pics of the various colors ... Go to google and type in the color and then go to the "images" tab and you'll see examples of the color on other Chrysler products.

I have looked at Redline on the Dart. It is still hard for some to visualize colors from a different car on the Jeep. This goes further if you optioned Black wheels or something like that.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Summit question. Does anyone know if the silver colored lower body trim is the same color as the Granite body color? IE if you get a Granite Summit does it match that trim as with the Overland bodies, or are they contrasting, if only slightly? Thanks!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Just test drove a 2014 Limited. The gold trim that some are alluding to is actually more silver but has a slight gold tinge around the trim. Hardly noticeable at all. The one I drove had the beige interior so I'm not sure if the black leather has a different trim for the center console.

Was it a V6? If so, was it reponsive off the line with the 8 sp tranny? Did the beige interior have contrasting stitching?
