Telltale Signs That It's a 2014
 
What are some of the indicators to spot a 2014 at a distance? I know the taillights, front end. Is the sharkfin unique to the 14? Is it on all the trims or just with certain radio/NAV options? Anything else?

Front Grill and Lower Facsia
LED Running Daytime Lights (Limited Lux II, Overland, Summit)
LED Running Tail Lights
Fog Lights are projectors lens
Dual Exhausts (Standard on all models except the Laredo)
No Side Chrome Molding, Grand Cherokee Lettering only.
20" Wheels are different. (Still 5 spoke though.)
Sharkfin Atenna
Larger Rear Spoiler
No flipper glass on liftgate

Yeah, the sharkfins are new for 2014.

I didn't think the Laredo had a dual exhaust?

You are right, all models except for the Laredo have it.

The side Grand Cherokee was used on the 2013 SRT models.
Fog logs almost look the same on a 2013
18" rims are different

If you are driving and you see one coming at you, either the headlights or the grill o\___/o is a good give away.

My 2012 has letters on the doors and a shark fin so a modded 2011/12/13 can fool you.

The orientation of the badges on the rear. But for me, the biggest, most consistent tell, is the headlights.

It's always been the grill that tells the difference. I don't have much of an issue telling the difference between the 11-13 from a 14, but I did see another overland yesterday that kind of looked like a Summit.

Lol ain't that the truth! I never noticed mine till the other day, it's only off by a little bit, can't really notice unless you look for it.

I have a 2012 F150 and the drivers headlight assembly is misaligned by about 2 inches. Just noticed it recently.

But, I think the GC's since 2011 look so beautiful. Just the presence on the road is beautiful, especially with the 20 inch wheels.
