I think the comment about job 1 CRD in June means that production will be in full swing around then - line pumping them out at full steam. At least that's my take.

May 7th ordering who-oooooo. Thanks for that info Milous!!

Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge, greatly appreciate. I guess I can understand quadradrive technology not working because of this however, I am still confused why we can not get at least a standard limited slip axle as an option. This would greatly help people like me who would love to have a more advanced traction option in the V6.

You need to meet my husband. Not only does he still dream about old Jeepster COmmando, but he is completely disgusted that I ordered a 4x2. He has a fully off-road set up Rubicon including lifts, huge tires , snorkels, etc... He can't handle that I didn't want a 4x4 .. I don't see myself needing it driving down I-95..

AFAIK, Quadra-Trac II + ELSD = Quadra-Drive

V6 (gas) doesn't get ELSD, thus no QD, in any configuration.

AFAIK, the ELSD used in Quadra-Drive is the only limited slip differential Jeep offers on the JGC -- it *is* the "standard" limited slip for the current JGC.

The best you can do on the gas V6 is Quadra-Trac, which is the same as Quadra-Drive minus the rear ELSD.

Seems to me it's free for one year, but some of the services, like WIFI, are fee based. After that, no one seems to know.

This is the first time Milous has said anything definitive about a scheduled order date. He also knows how disappointed we have been each month to only learn "not this month". Although skeptical, I feel the confidence in Milious' post.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I called to request the paper versions of the manuals today. The young lady was going over the list. "She chuckled when she said, I know you don't have a diesel, so you don't need that one."
