Exactly!! I made a similar comment, wasn't taken well However, in the spy pics it looks like a more solid design...

WEather radar incorporated into the navigation system (this is already on the Ford system, though).

That's a great thought but I do believe that news had already been released when talking about the new 8.4 screen/computer upgrade thingy & they do have it on other vehicles like you mentioned.

I think we're needing another hint.

I do believe there's a new steering wheel.

But the headlights make up for it, and scream "get the hell out of my way!" Lol
Headlights being mean makes me think you're hinting at a halo type headlight for the running lights rather than simple LED dots?

It's more of an upgraded 300 headlight kinda look. But with more aggressiveness on the SRTs bc of the blacked out housing. With the LEDs on, the truck looks like its pissed off!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

How about "yEllow" option for fog lamps in addition to the bright white?

I've been thinking about a ton of different things - but 99.9%, I'm asking myself why such a potential feature would only be available on the CRD. This would be such a feature, too.

Yesterday, I was thinking about "servo" as a phrase that would fit as well. But I really think we deserve another hint!

The blind spots are much better than on my 2010 GC. I can lose a truck in the right front corner blind spot at times. Good thing I'm the greatest driver in the world to avoid so many collisions.

I think I've finally come up with what it is...it's not really a specific feature but I think that all the CRDs when you go offroad will be "LEMONS"! Until we hear differently, we must all assume this and not buy one. Maybe that'll make'em give us another hint.

So I hope you mean that the regular WK2's will have the normal current bright headlight background? I don't like the looks of darkened headlights. They look like black eyes.
