Yes sir, that would be correct. Contrarily, I hate the chrome look. Looking at an Overland Summit from the front gives me a headache. Too much going on.. But they look pretty spiffy with the DRLeds on too..

Personally I think the Laredo will be the biggest surprise to many, especially those who have their sights set on an Overland or Summit. It's more of a canvas to personalize than the others. They give you a lot more to work with this time around. As I've said before, even the base Laredo has some character now..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Dual exhaust outlets for V-6 models would be a nice update and competative move. If you want to differentiate the Hemi, just put a badge on the tailgate.

Specific enough to incorporate a "switch/knob/control" .

Will there be HIDs on the Laredo yet? With the current MY it's the only that's got me planning on getting the Limited. If they came on the Laredo I'd just get that instead.

Is it a gear "sElector" that is a knob that you just turn or tap to engage the new ZF transmission?

Unfortunately, I haven't seen any with HIDs.. That doesn't mean it won't be an option though. I don't get to see EVERY one built, bc I don't work on that side of this 3 million sq. ft. compound, so it's possible that I've missed some that have 'em. But honestly, I doubt it will be available on the Laredo. But ya never know.. Maybe Marlon or Milous can confirm or deny that for you.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Residual heat circulation?

Yeah, I know. That's not a "new" feature in the market and not necessarily a plus just for off-roading.

I give up!

I didn't really expect it to. After adding aftermarket HIDs to one of my cars years ago I'll never go without again. Plus the wife isn't the best at night driving so they greatly help there.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

"Reduction something" ..... I have no idea what could be Diesel specific!?! All the things people guessed are not diesel specific......

Give us some relieve!
