That's absolutely right. In Germany many Hemis use an LPG system (Autogas) to lower the cost. Just to tell you how great your fuel prices are: Regular fuel in Germany is 1.67 Euro per liter (=8,19 USD per gallon); Diesel is 1.55 Euro (=7,61 USD per gallon).

Quite a luxury to drive a hemi

Rumor on here is they'll be running a 6.2l supercharged Hemi with 590hp. Which comes out to be abt a 25% bump. That however hasn't been confirmed by anyone I know, nor have there been ANY '14 6.2l equipped SRT8 pilots built to date. At least none in plant. One of my co-workers was at CTC doing some training a couple weeks ago, and said he saw some "other" upcoming products, but no 6.2l anything in the building. While another buddy works in "future vehicles" in Auburn Hills, and won't confirm or deny it. I'd imagine you'll see whatever the new powerplant is get stuffed into the Brampton fleet (C, C, and 300) before the GC gets it. Other rumors say it'll make it's debut in the 'Cuda.. But again, this is ALL speculation. Either way, considering the '14 MY launch is right around the corner, I wouldn't look for it in the GC any earlier than June/July. But we'll let ya know if/when one comes down the line..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I assume that the Tread Lightly discount/pricing should work on ore-orders...right?

I've been driving the Kia Sportage Diesel for about a week and couldn't be more happy with it. It has all of the bells and whistles including ALL of the guesses that we have come up with regarding the off-road CRD "tidbit".

So my advice is skip the 2014 GC and just get a Sportage instead and save yourself lots of $$.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm hoping they offer a 2014 Overland Vapor Edition (with black chrome or gloss black wheels and all the gloss black parts and badges, black chrome tail pipes, with an SRT like interior), and exterior paint choice of black clear coat.

Do it JEEP!

Why oh why would I want something built in Slovakia when I can have someone in Detroit build it? You can't compare a Sportage to a GC, 2 totally different vehicles. Maybe compare it to a Compass but not a GC. That is just silly..

It was either that or the Hyundai Veracruz but the Kia came with trail rated badging and a snorkel so that's why I went with the Kia. I just have to add my winch and I'll be set!
The Slovaks are very nice people so I want them to be successful as well.

lol... KIA not a crossover, a simple wagon. As Qashqai. When I choose between the crossovers, Kia did not even consider.
