Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

Thank you for all the kind words regarding my design of a blacked out edition in orange as stated on 11/30/2012 at 9:13 am. I will take most of the credit.

http://www.jeepgarage.org/f73/2014-grand-cherokee-features-and-changes-40291-223.html#post717633

Seriously though, I'm very impressed not only with their consideration of making this vehicle but I truly feel that Jeep does pay attention & does listen to what their passionate & loyal customers have to say. I do think that a version of this would be a HUGE success but I don't think that it'll come out with the 35s. Most likely 33s.

I've been out of the loop for awhile but it's nice to be back.

Hopefully you have all the relevant copy rights/trademarks/patents so you get paid for your great work! As to the 35s/33s, I can see Jeep leaving some room for obvious modding/keeping aftermarket happy.

LOL... I saw it online... "Frosted Mocha". Looks like even Hyundai is in on the "saddle color" the Santa Fe sport offers it. Um in fact it's even called "Saddle".

Really? I'm going to have to check it out now. I love the saddle look.

Maybe KIA will be off my list and I'll replace it with a Hyundai.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

I think using the SRT hood is a fantastic idea if they stick with it- similar to other manufacturers that use hood scoops/etc in their sport editions.

I also believe that they will have a tow package option....doesn't make sense for a vehicle like this to not be able to tow.

I'm predicting that they will release this with smaller tires (32 or 33s), 2 engine choices (CRD and V6), tow option, newer antenna, available in probably 2 or 3 colors including this perfect orange (IMO). I don't think sticker will be 55K but probably closer to mid 40s V6 and of course $50K for CRD.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk

Now this makes me sad I bought a 2013 - and the wife won't let me upgrade yet. But seeing as this is a vast improvement over the last Trailhawk, I can be excited to see what it will look like whenever the next JGC comes out (2017?) - that is the one the wife will let me upgrade to.

if they don't put the V8 in it then i'll be finding a 2013 black trailhawk. but i'm waiting to see what happens.
