Re: Telltale Signs That It's a 2014

Headlights is the only way I can tell. Especially when you see the LED's in the rearview...I think it looks awesome. What are some thoughts on the chrome grill? Not sure if it is too flashy.

No LED DRL's on the Laredo or Limited.

Yep. That's what I use -- that and the lack of a chrome bar on the front door bottoms.

You're right about the LED's...but aren't the headlights themselves different from the 2013?

They are partial LED. Jeep took the cheap route and only made the taillight/running lights LED. The stop, turn and reverse lights are still incandescent.

Limited with LuxII have LED DRLs.

Sno-All MY14 have chrome around fogs, IIRC only the Summit has chrome on the MY13, which is easily distinguishable to the other MY14 because of the lower fascia (and MY14 Summit fogs are unique)

The rear is the easier to tell apart-tail lights and the chrome in between on the MY14.

Front-not to be confused with the ton of Compass here in NJ.

I think the more and more of the MY14 you see on the road it'll be easier to discern...try that with the MY11-13's (which is why jeep want the trims to be easily identifiable now)

Re: Telltale Signs That It's a 2014

Yeah, all 2014's are projector headlights. Laredo's/Limited's are halogen projector's unless you opt for the HID's on the Limited's

The tail lights on all trim levels are in fact LED. The brake lights/turn signals are not. Perhaps that is what you mean?

Re: Telltale Signs That It's a 2014

Smiley face in the front, and the Durango taillights. No offense to anyone.

Yes I guess so, I replaced the brake/turn signal, my bad. So I am a little confused which are the tail lights? the ones further down the bumper, or are those just plain markers? I still find stuff about my '14 everytime i come here, LOL

No, below the bumpers are just reflective markers. The LED taillights are in the casing that surrounds the brake lights.

See the photo, the lit up area are the LED lights.
