Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Anyone else think the customizations you can do in the 2014 SRTs is pretty badass?

When I had my Overland my mind was blown when you could change if the jeep honked on locking, remote start, ect. Then when I got to playing around in my 2014 SRT and found that you could turn DRL on/off, kill the annoying rear hatch beep, set volume for parking sensors (independently), ect. my mind was blown again. It is as if they are finding out what tweaks and mods people want and actually include them.

If Jeep is watching, I would like to be able to include the headlamp LEDs in the DRL setup and be able to disable the headlamp washers. For good measure, also throw an 'accessories page' in the head unit to control aftermarket gear like radar detector, additional lighting, electric cutouts, ect. Would awesome to have soft keys for this kinda stuff so us owners don't have to install custom switches and cut/drill our beautiful interior.

I would like to see them update the "easy exit" seat feature so that you can set the power tilt/telescope steering wheel separately. Right now, it is both or nothing. I like the wheel to go up and out of the way, but do not like the seat to go back. I have asked the service department, they do not know how to reprogram this feature.

Two Redlines went to pre-release last weekend; but there's still 3 of us "not yet scheduled" go figure....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

BILLCAT Any news on Sepia?

Come on Jeep guys you should let us know!!!

GenevaSRT8 & SuisseRoudy! Special news for EU orders!

Last week I have discus Jeeps transport timing to EU. As you know got my built date for my Granit SRT in 21 week. If the date is meno mas correct it would be imposible to expect delivery before 15.9.2013. As I was told transport wil start in cca 2-3 weeks after production, then they need to go across ocean and THAN there is ITALY. As you all know our dear neighbours dont work at all in August! Since ALL transport of JEEP-FIAT goes thru italian ports we are f....ed! No deliver till....... good knows when. In-between they will just let them hang in the port for a month or evern more.
Unfortunately this facts are confirmed from my dealer and my dear friend who is an ex brand manager of Jeep.

Can somebody please prove me wrong!


Since I must wait for so long in any case it seams to me that there is no diferrence if I wait for Sepia. If I change to Sepia in Monday they will probably add few weeks to my order and I will get my SRT at same time as predicted now.

BILLCAT please get some info soon, you are nearer to them than us !

Still get no info from Akrapović for exhaust, hoppefuly they will go for production. GenevaSRT8 & SuisseRoudy check up their web, if I succeed with prototype I can/will hook you up if you are ready for tuning. If not will go for Borla or something....

Thanks for the info Namibija,

With my dealer I am still at the stage when I beg for some sort of useful code that will allow Milous to track my order, and for the possibility to have the wheels I want (I've only been asking for 2 months...).
I had the same idea, i.e. if I am screwed on delivery timing regardless, why not get the late options (especially if they cannot be bothered with charging for them ;o)

To be honest, I think that people who care about getting the info to the customers (dealers) are kept in the dark by the importer, and those who could get the info (importer) just don't give a damn about it. But they just changed the swiss website to tell about the '14... so I guess there is hope...

Enjoy your privileged connection with a dealer that manages to get useful info and allows you to order what you want, and thanks again for sharing!

Jan

All I know is that my order actually was scheduled this week. I got an email from G that shows all the features so everything that I ordered which is everything you can get Including sepia on the car and so should be about eight weeks according to the sales people. Life is good!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

I also have ordered STR 2014 as a possible delivery in September, October. The order was in Maximum steel color ....... if Deep Cherry would be available I could change the order with the risk to change the delivery date

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT8 - Features & Changes

Ok, after my rant of post #1109 above, I finally managed to get a list of options that will come with my truck (copy-pasted on an e-mail...). Still no VIN or anything useful to allow Milous to track it for me.
I also got another speech from my dealer about how powerless he is at asking for options... only to be told that "they are not available for Switzerland". Might have something to do with the fact that we the Swiss feel the need to officially rubber-stamp and approve of everything that is imported, and the importer couldn't be bothered to have all options approved for import by the authorities for a vehicle (the SRT version) that will sell in low volumes. So they load the trucks and order them all the same except for the color. Could be an explanation.

Anyway, they confirmed the pano roof, 3-season tires and HK premium audio as "standard options" (perfect so far), along with (this is a surprise) the remote CD player and (drumroll...) the Black Vapor wheels (WF9 option code).
This last one is great news because they are the ones I want (had I wanted the Goliath I would be screwed... but I don't want the Goliath, so all good).
