Rear hatch window open on 2014?

Does the rear hatch window on the 2014 open like it does on the 12,13?

I have always liked this feature on my SUV's and I thought I heard that it does not. I searched but could not find where I thought I saw that information.

The rear hatch window does not open in a 2014.

Ah man...that sucks. I wonder why they would bother changing something like that?

The claim is more view and less weight

I'd rather have the 8 speed (best auto transmission in the world) than the rear glass open.

HEY: A brick thrown with just the right aim and force will open that rear window permanently for you.

I like that the rear glass pop is gone. It gives the Jeep a cleaner look and the 50lb weight savings isn't too shabby either.

They saved maybe 12 lbs. at best. It was all about saving Chrysler money.

Are you sure they saved 50 lb? Sure as hell does not seem like the whole door even weighs that much...maybe 50 lb on my 13
