Re: Old Skool, or Just Cool?

My Cool Old Skool 2011. Almost ready to kiss 30k, no squeaks, leaks, rattles or gremlin battles.

Re: Old Skool, or Just Cool?

Wouldn't 2017 be the next gen? The Grand Cherokee has always been redesigned after 6 years. Of course calendar year will be 2016 when the '17's arrive which I think everyone is referring to here.

I have a 2011 and this post is hilarious! I don't much care for the new front or sides but I love the new interior. Bottom line for me is these things are really expensive! I don't have 45k to spend on a car I will put 100k miles on in 5 years. So I got a used Laredo X GC for around 25 and am totally happy. (Although I still feel a little guilty for not getting a new Honda Accord to save even more). But if money were no object, 2014 Overland it would be!

Re: Old Skool, or Just Cool?

I guess I am the traitor of the bunch. Loved my '11WK and did a whole bunch of mods including sharkfin, ambient floor lighting, CAI, etc.. Traded it last month for the '14 and could not be happier

Re: Old Skool, or Just Cool?

CR was happy with the WK2 -- until the 14's came around. I'm sure I would like a '14, but I'm totally happy with mine. I prefer side moldings over side letters to clean/polish/wax around. I also use my rear flipper glass quite often. I would prefer the 8A, and new 8.4 though.

But my 2014.8 only has 3 miles on it so it's gotta be better than yours! Lol, JK. Good post.

Re: Old Skool, or Just Cool?

I had a 2012 Overland V6. It was very nice and I loved it, but since the 14's came out I cant help but think the 2011-2013's already look so old. I would say the 2014 mid cycle "refresh" was one of the biggest changes I have seen for just a refresh. To me it almost seems like an entirely different car. The interior is gorgeous. As soon as I started seeing the 14's on the road the 12 just had to go I knew it wouldnt as special to me ever since.

The new interiors and headlights are what make me like the 2014. I'm not so crazy about the redesigned exterior aesthetics. The 8spd is much smoother.
