Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It is definitely drive train related. I can't see it being a new transmission, as they JUST brought out the 8-speed auto. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE a dual clutch manu-matic, though that may not work well offroad (would it?) and the SRT would benefit from it.

Possibly a second diesel, since exports have had the 3.0 for a few years already. It's obviously something out of left field. The SRT thing keeps throwing me for a loop - I keep thinking of performance stuff like direct port injection. Maybe it is E85 for the gas engines?

I haven't noticed that styling/trim has been ruled out directly, but seeing as it applies to all trims, its likely a safe bet. The rest of your list looks good.

So.. What's a transmission option, that could get the hint '3,3,3,3,5,6'. And a type that has never been in a Chrysler vehicle before...

I need to take a step back, haha... You're right.

Another transmission option could be a possibility, but not the new 'standard' immediately after the 8spd launch.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Need more clues!

Is it off road related?

Is it fuel saving related?

Does it have chrome on it?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hmmm, I still think it's a turbo V6.

2WD or 4WD, LHD or RHD, doesn't matter. No on the chrome.

I think he means that specific engines were suggested and ruled out, like the Hellcat, not the entire category.

My guess was a rev-limiter (3K rpms in gears 1-4, 5K in gear 5 and 6K in gear 6. Would that make sense? Probably not..).

You ruled out some of the engines guessed, but that didn't rule out all possible engines.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

My guess would be a new, more efficient low end standard motor. A 3.0L gas 4/6 or something along those lines.
