Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hi GCOverland, as a matter of fact you are right. The 2012 JGC Summit also had a lot of chrome. Nevertheless, why does the 2014' feel more bling-bling?
May be because the 2012 chrome was in the...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Gigi's pdf mentioned +9HP for the 3.0 CRD bringing it from 241 to 250 HP (could also be meant to be 241 PS (present EU rating in PS) going up to 250 PS).

Was this wishful thinking?
