Well, I'm committed now...I have a delivery date on the Jeep in my sig. I thought the CRD with ORA2 provides the off-road ability and economy? I'll have to read up on the Cherokee.

I was fine with that it just annoyed me that the model considered lower had it but the "higher" vehicle didn't. Oh well now my GC and I'm looking forward to testing a few new things out come winter!

The difference is size and luxury, from what I've seen.

Don't worry, I'm sure they are holding off on the Parallel and Perpendicular parking feature for the 2015 MY.

The GCs don't need that. You simply drive over the other cars and drop in to the space.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Was there a name-change on one of the Summit exterior colors? I just checked the website and they are listing a "Western Brown" instead of Auburn?

It's the same color, it has been called "Western Brown" on the Dodge Ram, maybe they are going to rename it the same for the WK.

It sounds better than "mud brown" for most (but not all) buyers

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

according to the Jeep website Quadratrac 2 is an option for the laredo and laredo e.

While building a laredo there seems to be no option to get it to Q2.

Is Q2 available for a plain Laredo? reason being the sport mode.

Thanks, Milous, that makes sense!

Not that I would be interested in that color - but every time I see something "new" about the WK2, I'm getting excited..
