Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

So ...this is another way in which us, early adopters, got shafted. We don't get ACC with STOP...despite the promise, and we get 4 stars only.

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

the full crash report from one of the earlier 2014 GC tests is here if anyone wants to flip through the 222 pages. didn't see a newer report in there though to compare it to.

search on 2014 GC below
NHTSA VSR | Query on Vehicle Database based on selected Test table parameters

Just wondering what Chrysler/Jeep did to enhance the safety of the vehicle.. I watched the crash test videos for early 2014 model and late 2014 model and really could tell the difference..
Just fit a few more air bags
One big one for the entire vehicle and it score 10

..Because they launched a 2014 vehicle at the beginning of 2013. This is the result of Jeep or Fiat rushing to bring to car out before all changes we're made.. Had they released the GC when really the following model year should be, all issues would have been taken care off.. that's Chrysler group for yh..

Look at this this way, at lease they didn't change the design and these minor changes won't at all affect resale value.

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

I don't think '14 prices has changed at all (for the 2014 model year).

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

I'd like a second opinion on that.
I quickly found this post. I'm sure there's more.

Prices have definitely been going up. The identical summit that I bought in April is now $1400 more MSRP.

Re: 5-Stars for 14" Grand Cherokee!

So, I don't think early adopters got the shaft. Later buyers paid for the improvements they got. And next year there will be more improvements, and higher prices. I have no regrets for buying when I did.

Yeah I may be wrong, I was going off of WK2jeeps.com and looking at it now realize they have been updating their prices as they are updated:/

yeah id agree with that but may have also been better for jeep to have just taken those Jan-june 6 months that they used for an early release and put it into R&D/bug shakedown identify/fix and then just released a more finalized and bug free version in July when everyone else is releasing their 14s but whatever I like my jeep and glad I got it.
