I saw a limited yesterday along with two masked jeeps...which had me thinking. Are the MY 16/17 GC out as test mules yet or are are they far from that point and still in design phase? Test mules had front and rear LEDs, front and REAR TURN LEDs and appeared very close in size to the '14 GC.


I will say as one that has stated several times how much I dislike the exterior changes of the '14, the limited looked pretty good in person, although it was filthy and night time.


The bigger question is what's under these covers????? I was thinking maybe the new '14 liberty/cherokee, but would they really go to these extremes when they were already 90% masked, let alone it was late at night?

I cant imagine any 16 or 17 test mule being out already lol. The 14 Grand Cherokee has LED turn signals...well atleast the higher end models do.

From what I have seen on Jeeps site they have a nice model comparison and you can quickly scroll through all the models. IMO the best looking 2014 is by far the standard Overland. The summit just looks weird to me something about that wanna be front lower SRT fascia, and the polished SRT wheels just look weird. If I ever get a 2014 it will without a doubt be a non Summit Overland.

I agree! I will say it looked much better in person with real world surroundings. That's good about the rear LED turns as I didn't think any '14 model had them.

That looks like an Overland

I will have to look at other pics later, but it stated "limited" on the rear lift gate. I assumed it was a limited with the optional 20" wheels.

Maybe they're Wagoneer mules? You can kind of see in the covered pic that the area behind the rear wheel is longer than a WK2. So it could be the Durango also.

mmmm the new Overland wheels <swoon>

They definitely did not appear any longer than the wk2. Rear tails were in a similar location...front-end maybe looked a little shorter and more round.

Is that the Mcdonalds at M24 and Brown road?

If so the guy lives in a subdivision a couple miles to the north just south of a apartment complex. He has been driving it around for a while, but I would guess since the auto show they can take the camo off now.
