OK then ... all we have to do now is convince Ralph to make a black interior like that (no suede inserts in the seats, just drilled black leather, and with suede headliner and A pillars) and I can place my order

I like that there is no suede. Will be easier to condition and take care of. This, is, perfect! Thanks so much for the photos. Can't wait for pricing....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

So Scott - after being up close and personal with the Max Steel SRT, what is your opinion of the color? I know you would have preferred to stand next to a Redline

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Any update on the late availability of the Uconnect Access via Mobile? Can this be added later or do I have to wait to order. I am ready to order tomorrow if they open the order banks. thx

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Finally got to my hotel and had a chance to look over the photos from autoblog for a bit. Being 100% honest:

Good:
8-speed
instrument cluster/radio
additional colors

Bad:
everything else.....

The new grill shape and headlight DRLs look too Kia/Hyundai for me. I think the black grill looks stupid. Rear tails and removal of the chrome brow, meh. And that closeup of the new wheels made me laugh. A new marker on the list for SRT money grab; "here are the 5-spoke wheels you all wanted, but we made them polished and spent about 5 minutes designing them. We used a Dodge Ram mold for our baseline. But, you can always pay more for the original design wheels offered in two different colors.....which not many of you liked either " Sorry, they are just bad, and look like bricks.

Looking at those photos of the Max Steel at the show, it looks like a normal old SUV. Nothing screams beast or aggressive.

EDIT: Hey, could be worse, look what GM did to the new C7 Vette. Yikes!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I agree, Schleprock. Love the new 8 speed and Uconnect screens and some other new techy stuff. But looks-wise, I like my 2012 better in almost every way. Don't like the new steering wheel either.
