Re: Pics - 3.0L CRD Engine and 2014 Limited

Aren't those the Overland headlights on the Limited?

Re: Rooftop carrier with panoramic sunroof

Why would a roof top carrier be in contact with anything but the crossbars to which it is attached?

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland VIDEO walk around

Don't want all the tacky chrome and blingy wheels though. Sucks to not have the choice and will probably be a show stopper for me.

Re: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland VIDEO walk around

What is the logic (no pun intended) behind not making the HK system an option on the Overland? Only those wanting more of a mall crawler than a rock crawler appreciate a higher end system?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is it 100% certain that we can't order some of Summit options like HK stereo, adaptive headlights, blind spot warning, etc. on a Limited or Overland?

Re: Facination with chrome on the WK2

Once you are at the "fully chromed" Summit level, I think it is priced too close to the premium brands you mentioned. We were considering diesel to replace the wife's BMW 535xiT and at $55K the...

What's up with the wheel options for 2014?

The wheel options are horrible. 2 tone wheels are totally cheesy looking and the Summit wheels look more like they belong on a car than an off road machine. The Overland 20" wheels would look great...

Re: New 2014 Spy Pics on Autoblog

What's up with that dark plastic under the headlights? The headlights look like they were from another model and then made to fit using some sort of aftermarket kit. Horrible looking.

Re: Any photos or updates on this subject?

Now that is pretty cool and at least real wood. If Jeep is going with wood on the outside, they may as well go with the giant chrome bumpers, whitewall tires and canvas roof. :thumbsup:

Re: "Yeah, but diesel costs more..."

It was my understanding that the CRD was designed to be 50 state compliant from the get-go. What certifications are required if it already meets requirements?
