Buying a 2014 Summit Today

Hello. I知 a new member that痴 been lurking this site for a while now. I知 going to purchase a 2014 Cashmere Pearl Summit in a few hours. Since my brother works for Chrysler, I知 getting the EP price which is a pretty good deal without the hassle of haggling.


I thought I壇 get the Hemi until I test drove the V6 yesterday back to back with the V8. I was impressed enough with the V6 to sway me in that direction.

I知 not sure I like the 2014 Summit wheels as much as I did the 2013 Summit polished 20 5 spokes. Would the 2013 wheels fit the 2014?

Thanks,

<O</O
Tom

Agreed. To answer your question, the 2013 wheels will swap right in with no problem.

Re: Buying a 2014 Summit Today

Thanks for the replies. Just got her home. I'm overwhelmed by the tech! Pulled it into the garage for the first time crawling along while my wife made sure I wasn稚 going to hit anything. Warning tones where going off every once in a while but it fits fine.

I 都ettled for the V6 and as long as I don稚 drive one with a V8 I知 going to be fine. I was very surprised at how spirited this heavy vehicle felt with this engine and tranny combo. I tested a 2012 last year with the V6 and I know I wouldn稚 have been as happy with it.


Picked up the Lifetime warranty for an extra $2K and peace of mind considering all the bells and whistles this thing has. I致e never purchased an extended warranty before but this just seemed to make too much sense considering I keep my vehicles forever. <O

Agree. Lifetime warranty is good pickup if you keep long time (I'm same - got lifetime warranty I drive high miles). V6 is good. I can feel weight of truck going up hill if Eco mode is on but click button and then it's more lively when you need it.

Re: Buying a 2014 Summit Today

I was amazed with V6 as well, and I thought the ride quality blew the Hemi away. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Re: Buying a 2014 Summit Today

Wow, it's amazing how varied points of reference are...I test drove both engines and felt a fairly significant difference between the V6 and the Hemi....the Hemi makes the JGC a totally different truck....and that's a good thing.....at least that's the way it felt to me.....oh, and before anyone calls me biased towards the Hemi, I had the Pentastar in the Wrangler and really liked it that application.......funny thing is, the Hemi gets better gas mileage than the my dad's Patriot around town....

Re: Buying a 2014 Summit Today

Don't get me wrong, I definitely felt the difference......but only when I really accelerated very aggressively like flooring the accelerator. There is no doubt I'd prefer the hemi when passing on a two lane road.

The thing that really surprised me about this new V6/8 speed tranny combo was that (to me) it felt every bit as lively as the hemi in normal driving. It never felt like it was struggling. I do tend to drive faster than the average bear but I'm not a really aggressive driver like a few people I know. That being the case, I just felt that the V6 provided adequate (not exhilarating) passing acceleration and the rest of the time I don't think I'll notice the difference, except at the gas pump.

The only time it might bug me that I didn't get the V8 is when you guys with one remind me I didn't.

Re: Buying a 2014 Summit Today

I've also got a 2014 Summit with the V6 and the first thing I do is turn off eco when I get it started. The difference in throttle responsiveness is pretty incredible. I feel it's a good bridge between eco and sport modes.
