Unless they have added it, the Explorers don't have a built in garage door opener either. I noticed this when I tested an Explorer Sport just before buying my Overland. I should have known I suppose,...

Re: Deal or no deal on remaining 2014 overland

I have 16,500 miles on my 14 Overland with zero problems... As long as the build date is after about August of 13, I think you will be fine.

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!


Edited to add: September 13 build.

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.

Ditto, the 5.7 rocks. And, I had the V6 in my 2012 Laredo. Average difference in gas mileage for me is 1.63mpg (I use an app to track it), not enough difference to go back to the six.
