They are the brand new 2nd generation 8.4" screens, models RA3 and RA4. RA3 is w/o navigation, but can be upgraded anytime to add nav. RA4 is with nav and HD radio.

Wow, the updated Overland/SRT will be a great vehicle. So much new technology - I love it!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes
 
And the wait continues. 2014 SRT8 (faster) is on my list. Might just drive my "beater" 2009 SRT8 until then.
I have a feeling the 2012 & 2013 will loose a higher than normal depreciation amount unless Sergio jacks up the price again in 2014.:slapfight:

Power Net Architecture?

Allpar:
"The new electrical system allows both high- and low-speed data networks to be equipped with up to 40 modules. Within the PowerNet high-speed network, each module (e.g., Forward Collision Warning) processes its data and transmits commands to activate any other systems (e.g., anti-lock brakes and adaptive cruise control). The new Uconnect Touch uses PowerNet’s low-speed bus to handle personalization, instrument panel controls, entertainment and information applications (e.g. Keyless Enter-N-Go, smart remote start, SIRIUS Travel Link, iPodŽ Control, etc.), and comfort and convenience controls."
