Re: 2014 Test Drive Reviews

Just test drove the '14 with a Hemi up the steep part of I-70 out of Denver from Golden; brought a tear to my eye.

Rarely has so much hype lived up in reality. The '14 was awesome!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You should go by there, they have MaxSteel next to all kinds of other colors. I think it's a great choice, just also thinking about branching out and some inner voice that says Jeeps should be red. ;)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks for pointing that out, I did like the mineral gray more than the darker MaxSteel or the lighter bright silver. Will have to go by a Chrysler dealership to check out the "real" granite.
