Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

There is a dealer on ALLPAR reporting that he received 6 new 2014s yesterday.

Does anybody have some good quality pictures of the Granite Crystal Summit?
The best I could do is google the images for that color in the Chrysler 300. IMHO, a very good choice in the GC.

The Line® is running great and I love it! Makes the day go by much faster. I don't even feel like I'm there for 10 hours anymore.

Does nobody have more VINs for me to look out for? (Save time and keystrokes, only send me the last 6 numbers, I have access to the rest of it... heh... so that is totally unnecessary LOL)

Remember: I need notification after it hits PAINT status, NOT D1.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Marlon, on the Overland is the lower fascias, rocker panel parts already painted when taken out of the box before assembly? Or do they go into a paint booth? Thanks! I want to buy those parts when they're available in brilliant black if possible.

Everything is pre-painted and sequenced prior to assembly.

I'm not sure if that would apply to a replacement part though.

I ordered a Summit in Granite Crystal based on what I saw on the Jeep GC website:

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee| Fuel Efficient Luxury SUV | Jeep

The color shown there is much lighter than on the 2013 Chrysler 300's. I hope that is the case - the 2013 color is pretty drab in my opinion.

If anyone has some actual pictures of the 2014's in Granite I would really appreciate if you could post them.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The Chicago Tribune has an extensive review of the 2014 Grand Cherokee today. www.chicagotribune.com/classified/automotive/fuel-economy/sns-2014-jeep-grand-cherokee-review-20130226,0,6870173.story
Certainly a feel good story for those of us that have them on order. It should even feel better when we can take them for a drive.

10 MPG certainly make a difference..

Not one diesel costs more and the CRD costs $4,500 compared to $2,195 for the Hemi 5.7L V8.
