Motorweek 2014 Review

They finally put their review up online. It's pretty good and they review the diesel also.

Also seems like dealerships are receiving the 2014 brochures now (picked mine up today).

Re: Motorweek 2014 Review

Problem with John Davis and his precious show (Motorweek) is he never met a vehicle he didn't like.

Re: Motorweek 2014 Review

0-60 8.3 sec for V6. Do we know official numbers for V6 and V8?

Lol that is so true!

There's a similar show up here in Canada called RPM and the host has never met a vehicle he did like. He dislikes every vehicle he reviews. It's pathetic.

Re: Motorweek 2014 Review

I loved my 2011 Summit but do love my new 2014 Summit. However, I do miss the flipper glass. Great review.

One of the best parts of the video is where they actually had to demonstrated that the flipper glass button wasn't there anymore. Just made me laugh a little.

That part can actually be removed for more of an approach angle.

Re: Motorweek 2014 Review

Did they say the V6 with the 8speed trans is actually faster 0-60 than a 2013 5 speed with a HEMI???

Wow really goes to show how much difference a tranny makes.

Have to give them credit, out of all the reviews out there so far, they are the only ones so far to mention the loss of the flipper glass.

Re: Motorweek 2014 Review

Drove a 2014 V6, 8 speed... it is great. I hate that weenie touch shifter, PITA. Now, I have high expections for the 3.2 V6 9 speed in the Cherokee.

Re: Motorweek 2014 Review

They called it a 2x4, LOL. I know some people use that to refer to a 2wd vehicle but even Jeep (and most other manufacturers) list it as a 4x2 on the web site. A 2x4 is a piece of wood.
