Telltale Signs That It's a 2014

What are some of the indicators to spot a 2014 at a distance? I know the taillights, front end. Is the sharkfin unique to the 14? Is it on all the trims or just with certain radio/NAV options? Anything else?

Re: Telltale Signs That It's a 2014

I didn't think the Laredo had a dual exhaust?

You are right, all models except for the Laredo have it.

The side Grand Cherokee was used on the 2013 SRT models.
Fog logs almost look the same on a 2013
18" rims are different

If you are driving and you see one coming at you, either the headlights or the grill o\___/o is a good give away.

Re: Telltale Signs That It's a 2014

My 2012 has letters on the doors and a shark fin so a modded 2011/12/13 can fool you.

Re: Telltale Signs That It's a 2014

The orientation of the badges on the rear. But for me, the biggest, most consistent tell, is the headlights.

Re: Telltale Signs That It's a 2014

It's always been the grill that tells the difference. I don't have much of an issue telling the difference between the 11-13 from a 14, but I did see another overland yesterday that kind of looked like a Summit.

Re: Telltale Signs That It's a 2014

I have a 2012 F150 and the drivers headlight assembly is misaligned by about 2 inches. Just noticed it recently.

But, I think the GC's since 2011 look so beautiful. Just the presence on the road is beautiful, especially with the 20 inch wheels.
