The Challenger SRT does not have the 8.4 screen, and will not be getting it for the 2013 model year.

Last I checked the Jeep GC will be getting the new radio for the 2014 model year refresh. In fact, it may have the upcoming 2nd gen 8.4 radios which, among other new features, will have a "smart-touch" screen.

As everyone knows, the GC is selling extremely well. They do not need a lot of new features to keep the ball rolling for the upcoming 2013 model year. While I should have more info later this month, I wouldn't expect many notable changes for the upcoming model year. New colors as always, a good possibility for the LED taillamps, and *maybe* the new 8-speed for V6 models.
Thanks for the clarification.

Nice...

"Smart-touch" reminds me of Caddy's CUE-system which will be available on the 2013 SRX.

That leaves the question if Jeep is going to introduce a second LCD-screen as speedometer-replacement just like Cadillac does with CUE.

Check out the video from 5:00 on. I want that cluster on a Jeep (SRT8)..



That would be freakin' hot...

Make Nav screen available in the odometer cluster, like Porsche does! And radio screen too. Also, need a digital spedometer in the windshield.

that's exactly what CUE is offering - you can even see it in the posted video.

If Jeep could offer these features...seriously, who needs a Mercedes ML or BMW X5?

Thanks for all of the current and future information.

Now... if they would only ADD the Quadra-Lift system so that the SRT8 performed both ON and OFF road...

Then you wouldn't have an SRT8. The suspension in the SRT8 is one of the critical ingredients WHY it is an SRT8 platform. If someone wants Quadra-Lift and on/off road ability, then that is what the Overland is for. Or, pay to have a 6.4L Hemi swapped in to an Overland.

I hope they add the 8 speed tranny and a multi disc player to the audio system

Who uses these anymore? Sat radio, Aux inputs, USB, iPod hookup, in dash hard drives, and Bluetooth audio streaming. I haven't touch a CD in years lmao. It's a digital age and the disc is becoming obsolete. That's just my opinion.

Re: What's next for 2013?

I've got over 250 unabridged audiobooks and still buying. I've become addictted to these as my driving entertainment even though I have XM radio. I realize that they could be downloaded but it would be nice to just pop in 6 at a time like I currently do with my 04 Rainier
