I have a 2011 " Old Style" and this feature can be turned on or off from the EVIC menu on the steering wheel. Looks like from the owner's manual quote this feature was removed on the 2013 and must be taken care of at the dealer.

I have a 2013 Overland and can turn it on/off in the EVIC as well.

Cool- Wasn't sure if they took that away like the auto window feature. OP should have his answer by now.

Re: How to turn on Automatic Locking door

If you can select this option on a '13 JGC the owner's manual is clearly wrong.

My '14 has the selection in the Uconnect settings menu.

Yea the owner's manual states automatic door locks- if equipped. Maybe this feature is not available on the EVIC on all 11-13 models.

Re: How to turn on Automatic Locking door

It is not a user setable option on my 2011 December GC Overland. To set the auto locking was a trip to the dealer. It took 5 minutes and cost nothing!!
