Agreed. Adds value. Adding a shield would do no plus for the value at all.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Milous, or any one that might know, why is the Selec-speed only supplied with a V8 and ORAII? I assume it is only a software enabled option in the system. The CRD has more torque than the 5.7 V8 and i would have thought it would handle the hill ascent better than the V8.
So, i would like to know the technical reason why selec-speed is not included on a MY14 with a CRD and ORAII?

In the testing I have seen with the diesels it had this. I believe this a drive line feature in the 2 speed system not software.

Yeah, the CRD has it.

The V6 doesn't, nor does the Summit.

I am sure it won't be pretty any which way.

I drove my sister's Camry back then when I loaned her my 4Runner for the day. I experienced the "acceleration issue". It was ABSOLUTELY NOT THE PEDAL OR THE FLOOR MATS!!! They completely lied about it. It was a computer issue with the drive-by-wire set up.

I had the car accelerate with my foot on the brake even without the floor mat present. It would lurch at random times at all types of driving and acceleration. It was a POS.

I told her to dump that thing ASAP! The only dealers that would take them back were Toyota. We showed up and there were a couple hundred used Camrys on the lot.

I won't even comment about my entire experience with this. I will say this, the setup of the drive by wire system should have always had a brake pedal override. There are many drive by wire systems out there and in the future they will all be this way however, I don't care how the acceleration happened there was no priority in place on the brake over the throttle.

On the lighter side, maybe they designed it that way to do amazing brake stands.... wait...

It is originally for a tractor to spike a hay bale but it could work
