Re: what would you change on the 2014 Jeep SRT?

I would do a chrome delete package. All chrome would be blacked out. Definitely power golf mirrors. Suede headliner. Black painted roof. 22" rim option

One other thing. For when you back up and both mirrors go down to the ground. I wish only passenger side did that

+1 I don't use the feature just because it lowers the driver side...

Re: what would you change on the 2014 Jeep SRT?

Well considering I installed power folding mirrors myself I agree with all those comments. Just ridiculous we didn't get them in the States.

I would love to see a HUD. That is one of the few things I miss from my 2006 Corvette I sold to buy my '14 SRT. The color HUDs in the Stingray and other vehicles are sweet and provide more than enough info for the driver.

Active exhaust system. Its going in the Hellcat so hopefully it will make it to the Jeep. The exhaust sounds good, but could sound better. Look at how many have already swapped exhaust systems on their 14s.

+1 suede headliner

More carbon fiber but not too much.

I would like to see the silver painted interior dash and console parts switched to matte black like they did on the Centennial Edition Corvettes. When done right it looks sweet.

+1 lose the chrome bits on the SRTs

With as much attention paid to exterior details why can't we get matching center caps for the wheels? Heck make them accessories and make me shell out more money. Some of us will do it (see my $1300+ donation to the Jeep parts department for my power folding mirrors).

When you paint the center caps can you throw in some black chrome lug nuts?

Ability to transmit apps from my phone onto the 8.4" screen like Waze or Google Maps since the stock NAV map is fairly inaccurate and it takes years for updates to appear.

All I can think of for now.

Re: what would you change on the 2014 Jeep SRT?

RHD cars DEFINITELY need better pedal ergonomics... not having a dead-pedal is a pain in the ass (literally).

also the foot-operated brake is cumbersome. it should have an e-Brake

Re: what would you change on the 2014 Jeep SRT?

I would love to see the gear selector also enable the driver to change through the gears during manual shifting.

The manual shift mode should also automatically down shift gears.

I would like to see the Bluetooth selector button as the first option or at least on the first page on the media control interface.

The option of locking or unlocking the doors from the rear door handles with keyless entry.

Automatic folding mirrors (already been said)

Heated seats/steering wheel time out and also decrease from hi to low while in use after time in use.

Spider monkey rims are hard work to clean, another option would have been great.

I assume you don't know about the 5 spoke rims they offered this year? I dont think they were too popular but they did exist and can be ordered.

The car I purchased had the spider monkey's on the car as standard. I think they look great , just tough to clean. It is a good excuse to buy some 21's though.

Re: what would you change on the 2014 Jeep SRT?

Love my truck, but I would add:

1) Better quality control at the plant, have had too many problems with mine.
2) Lighted entry (Light in the mirrors that light up the floor)
3) Automatic parallel parking
4) Engine start/stop
5) Lane Departure warning
6) Dual opening panaramic roof
7) Flip glass in the trunk
8) Power folding mirrors

Just my two cents
