Re: 2014 V6 Overland or 2014 V8 Limited

Not sure how you arrive at those numbers. Having owned both myself and having found less than a 2mpg difference on average, that would allow the V6 about 40 miles more on a 20 gallon tank. Maybe if...

Re: Shifter Confusion killed Anton Yelchin!!!

My wife has a MY13 Cadillac SRX which has a shifter similar to the GC MY12 version. She rarely drives my MY14, but when she does, she never has an issue with the shifter. The only issue she's ever...

Re: New '16 shifter - fit in a '14?

I can't even tell you what I do when I'm backing my boat in, but I never have an issue. I had a MY12 and now a MY14 and really never thought about the difference when it came to launching my boat.

Re: 1 Year Review 2014 Grand Cherokee Overland

I just passed a year with my 2014 Overland Hemi. Just over 15,000 miles and zero issues. Only recall I had done was the visor wiring. Love this thing!

Re: For those of you with an 8 speed on the V6

No, the evidence just says that the V8, diesel and SRT (all of which use the 870) are not having shifting issues while the V6 (using the 845) has been having multiple shifting issues.
