I'll go slightly differently:

3 - 3.0L V6 Export-only (no turbo, no DI)
3 - 3.2L V6 NAFTA (no turbo, no DI)
3 - 3.6L V6
3 - 3.0L CRD Diesel
5 - 5.7L Hemi
6 - 6.4L Hemi

Not A/V or telematics. Marlon would probably agree that if this "feature"/"item" were to be offered with the SRT, sales would be greatly affected.

Nothing to do with QL.

"Feature" could cover anything under the category of "features/options/equipment".

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Requires a new wiring harness, so electrical on the outside of the truck, puddle lighting or some form of lighting on the outside?

Is it something that would add considerable value, ie should I put a hold on my order

so interesting points to me:
Regarding Milous' 3,3,3,3,5,6 "hint"

If the item can be added on previously purchased MY14: (VERY INTERESTING THAT SRT is being ruled out twice already)

This new option however, would be a terrible idea in NAFTA.

Milous has noted it is NOT RELATED to AV or drivetrain or engine options(gas or diesel between 3-6.4 only)
Having explicitly called out that this option would affect SRT makes me think IT IS performance "decreasing" related...

Something new to Chrysler corp...

I have no new guesses but ruled out most of them lol

Would this be just for the EU market or US as well? And just gas or diesel too?

Doesn't the hemi already have that? Unless this is cylinder deactivation on the pentastar or maybe a way to lock it in that mode for certain city centers that have cc restrictions?
