Re: Pics - 3.0L CRD Engine and 2014 Limited

What hotel is this?!?! Looks like something on Tower Rd... I work off of south tower, near I-70.... are you telling me there is 2014 CRDs closeby!!?!?

Also, are you sure it was Black? Looks like Max Steel to me. Did you talk to the guys and see what the deal was? Or just snuck a few pictures? I totally would have walked over and got all up in their shit, lol.

Re: Pics - 3.0L CRD Engine and 2014 Limited

Very perceptive!! I don't know how you figured out the area but you are close! 40th and Lewiston. There's a Hyatt Place across Lewiston from Jimmy Johns. They were parked at the Hyatt, I bet they will be there tomorrow.

Tried talking to the guy but he was not chatty and didn't speak the best English! Go see if you can get him to open up!

Re: Pics - 3.0L CRD Engine and 2014 Limited

It's all on you now James! See if you can get them to divulge why the CRD has a late release if they've been using it elsewhere for a long time now. Problems getting it to work with U.S. specs? What problems are they there in Colorado trying to work out?

It's appears to be some sort of connection for data acquisition if I had to guess, it looks like the same things we use where I work.

Re: Pics - 3.0L CRD Engine and 2014 Limited

Yes! I drove by on the way to work and there was probably 5 or 6 of them... I came back at lunch with my camera, but there was only 2 in the lot then. I snapped some photos: neither had the LED lights... I wasn't able to get a front shot of the second one.

I'll head back after work and see if the other ones are back and get some more photos of those. I am really puzzled what these are doing here.... this area is no where near the mountains where I assume they could be doing testing... and these appear to be old pilots... maybe one of the guys could chime in?

Re: Pics - 3.0L CRD Engine and 2014 Limited

Of the limited words that I got from one of the testers, was that they were testing them at altitude and in the mountains. They had the black 2014 limited hooked up to a big Uhaul trailer this morning.

Sounds like they are definitely doing some testing then, probably with the diesels -- towing testing as well. Not sure why they are at that location though -- all the way across town from the mountains where the real altitude is.

I wonder if these are Jeep people or maybe its MEDIA testing/review?

This awesome - great spy shots, guys! I'm seriously considering bailing from the office and driving up there now to sneak a peek...

Re: Pics - 3.0L CRD Engine and 2014 Limited

Well I drove by again tonight -- no Jeeps

I'll check in every once in a while over the next few weeks and grab any pictures if they show up again.
