Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

From reading Donald Buffamanti's review on Autospies I am thoroughly impressed with Jeep...forget Honda and Toyota they are bringing it to the big boys (from Gremany) with this new car.

Electronics Interface second only to Audi
Headlights second only to Audi
Nicer interior than Mercedes ML!!

I am definitely in!! Now to decide between the CRD/Pentastar...come on Chrysler, offer the Lifetime warranty on the CRD and you will have made my decision for me.

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

I created a few SnagIt's from one of those offroad videos ... here's a Limited with the regular front lamps.

The 2014 front redesign is awesome...

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

F'ing awesome!!!! Without having to go through all the reviews what are the EPA ratings on the V8? So the V6 is 14/24, the SRT8 is 13/19....

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

In some of these reviews (espec. in the one from TFLCar folks) the LED headlights appear to be flickering. Is that...a camera lens aberration ? a video coding error ? a car trick ?

Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

The headlights are not flickering. It is happening because the shutter speed of the camera used to make the video is greater than the refresh rate of the LED, the human eye will not pick up on it.

The start-up difference of 2000 dollars and the diesel fuel markup do not help the calculations.

The start-up difference of 4000 dollars and the diesel fuel markup do not help the calculations.
I cant read your charts but its not a $4000 cost difference between the CRD and V8....
