Re: Frame mounted under-vehicle storage?

The spare is mounted under the rear floor on the Durango in what is unused space on gas powered Grand Cherokees. I wish that they had done that on the Grand Cherokees as well; at least the gas...

Re: Pixel on dash

Well, from what what I read, the dealer confirmed that your vehicle has the issue you reported, and that they have confirmed that others have it too. DUH!!! The problem appears to be that the...

I have started to think of this just like the taillights that don't line up right. It is annoying, but definitely not enough to take the vehicle out of use for a week (what our dealer told us) to...

Re: 2015 Range Rover VS Grand Cherokee (Overland/Summit)

You will definitely find that the interior is built with higher quality materials on the RR. The Grand Cherokee puts the nice material where you see and feel it, but other parts are hard plastic. ...

Re: pentastar upgrade

From what I have read previously, the Pentastar and Hemis will be getting direct injection and a version of Fiat's MultiAir, giving them a 10% increase in hp and torque, along with a similar gain in...

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

To me, adding MultiAir to the HEMI and Pentastar sounds like a great idea. I wouldn't doubt that the combination of direct injection would add 10% more horsepower with added efficiency. MultiAir...

Re: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee REFRESH

You would think so, but on our '14 I still miss the "gear" I want quite often if I don't down at the shifter. It seems rather silly to me to make a big mechanical "switch" that has no mechanical...
