So I thought this one wasn't supposed to have Carbon Fiber? At least those wheels are only an option.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I may order one when the banks open tomorrow, but a few things will determine if I lay the cash out for this beast.

price?
better fuel economy?

headlights on the white model look like they are bugging out of the front!
Rear mounted buttons for radio on the steering wheel?
Red start stop button for SRT black interior?
Is there a hard drive on the RA4 headunit?
does the tow package come with a spare tire?

Your dealer won't have the se answers for the most part - they're sooo shooting in the dark right now it's not even funny. I wouldn't be surprised to learn many are here reading and learning along side the rest of us.

from what I have ascertained.. my answers to yours (take them with a grain of salt)

price?

within 1-2 % of last year's model. If you look at price patterns for the past two models, it went up just a little both times.

better fuel economy?

yes, by default because of 8 speed transmission as well as eco mode which actively shuts down cylinders that are not in use for better fuel econ.

headlights on the white model look like they are bugging out of the front!

They are a little, on all models. LED housings are not small by any means.

Rear mounted buttons for radio on the steering wheel?

not a clue on this.

Red start stop button for SRT black interior?

I confirmed this today at my dealer. Sepia is the second seat option, the performance seats and that comes with the black start button where as black interior is the default seats with red start button.

Is there a hard drive on the RA4 headunit?

I believe it's flash memory from what I was told but he could have been guessing. Weight saving was what he said as to why. I bet Milous would know for sure.

does the tow package come with a spare tire?

yes, a full sized spare under the carpet in the back where the partial spare is normally. this is to aid you if towing and you get a flat. (partial donut would leave you stranded)

I'm ordering tomorrow for damn sure.

Quick question for you since you own Black - would you buy black again? any advice on black?

Good luck man!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I really like the black, I have owned 2 Jeep SRT in black. 2009 & 2012. I liked them both, the Brilliant Black Crystal is an awesome color and sparkles in the sun. Honestly I like the sparkles in this color rather than having just a boring flat black. Its a pain to keep clean but what isnt? I may order a white one, but im not digging the black grill. If I do get the white, im going with the black split spoke rim option and possibly color matching the grill white. Im also leaning towards the black interior, I feel like the Sepia only belongs on the Summit or Overland. Just seems out of place for the SRT.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I just did some digging and the 2014 SRT has this for standard -

STEERING WHEEL MOUNTED AUDIO CTRLS (RDZ)

so yes, there are stereo controls on the steering wheel.

Reason I'd asked about black, people are always saying it's a pain and it's always dirty and I'm thinking... it's a JEEP. Dirty isn't a bad thing.

So you'd buy black again no issues then?

if you don'y get white... and I'm with ya, that video SRT did with white in the interview room etc.. I wasn't feeling the black grill with it either which is why I'm pondering saying goodbye to granite and go black instead

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Id buy black again for sure. It looks pretty bad ass especially if you want to black everything out. Its not that hard to keep clean, I used to take my 2012 black SRT through the touchless car wash once a week or so. I think the other colors will be a pain to keep clean as well. Ive always wanted Jeep to offer the SRT in white, I had already bought a black one though before they released the Alpine otherwise I may have tried the white one. Im a sucker for black though, it goes pretty well with anything. I feel like all the other colors just dont do anything for me especially if i want to mod..
