I still hope the 8 speed and the higher rear end will help give it some get up and go from a stand still. From reading what people ordered on here I feel cheap at this point though...
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo E

Towing group 4.
Not at all, the Laredo is a great vehicle, there's a reason why it's the most popular trim (although not many people seem to have ordered it here yet). I actually personally like the way the Laredo looks better too, what with the lack of chrome and more subdued wheels. And while it may be cheap in cost relative to the cost of the higher trims, I definitely wouldn't call it a cheap vehicle, either in price or quality, although it is well priced I think.
I ordered the same that you did except I chose True Blue as the color and didn't get the Towing Group.
Anyway, welcome to the forum and congrats on your order! And yes, the 8 speed should improve getup and go from a standstill (and while moving too), but only time will give us a final definite answer on that.
