I'm not 100% sure but... I think Milous said the Hellcat was coming to the Challenger first in 2015, meaning it won't come to the JGC until at least 2016. However, 2016 is the last model year of the WK2, so it would make sense for Jeep to just wait until the 2017 model year to drop the Hellcat into the GC. Can anyone (Milous or Scott, but really Milous ) confirm?

Re: Real close to buying loaded 2014.. Should I wait for 15 or 16?

I know people in the know say there aren't any changes coming .... but there's always going to be tech refresh and fascia updates. As for the hellcat... I honestly don't care when it gets released .... just as long as it happens and that it looks good when it does.

Back to the OP's question... If you are okay with the looks I'm sure you would be happy with a 2014 as everyone seems to love them.

Re: Real close to buying loaded 2014.. Should I wait for 15 or 16?

I'm thinking SRT now as I still have a bit of time up my sleeve. '14 is the one to have although the pre-13's headlights are mean looking compared to the '14 IMO. The 8-speed though. Hard to pass that up. But finding replacement tires...is another story.

Also, are you thinking of waiting for the Blu Ray Player? Just wondering because it'll probably be more practical to buy two Ipads with headrest mounting kits with headphones and just burn movies movies onto them using AVPlayer HD. That way everybody can enjoy their own thing. Kids with the cartoons, you with the sound of the Hemi. Wife... I dunno... the vibration of the Hemi? :P

I believe you can't order a '15 till next summer, and then to wait for it to be delivered must be in the late Sept./Oct. range

I'll would just order a '14 because it's not much they can improve on pretty much.. it's a very very awesome package from factory

My man.. One hundred Grand. This is by far the best and cheap aftermarket infotainment system you can put in any car

There is always something better coming in the next year or so. If you keep waiting you'll never have the chance to enjoy one at all. Pull the trigger, you won't be sorry.

"No changes coming" would generally mean "no major changes". There will certainly be some new features and lots of tweaks here and there. Fascia updates would be minimal due to the cost of re-tooling.

Do you think the hellcat motor will make it to the WK2 platform, engine bay is kinda cramped, and can the 8-speed handle the torque

Re: Real close to buying loaded 2014.. Should I wait for 15 or 16?

There will be a 9 speed! Yes I think it will make it. I just hope they mature the front clip along with it.

Its funny though... a heavy truck is always gonna be slower than what we want and honestly the current version is more than fast enough. So why is there such a driving force in my brain for more power? Theres only a few places you can safely extract the power and even then most people will never actually race it.
