Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Have you spent a lot of time in Colorado? If not, you'd be amazed what you see on the trail. I wish I wasn't on my phone so I could upload a photo of my currently daily driver. I think you'd get a...

Offroad related question:

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Wait, wait. Am I reading that right? At first it was CRD only, then maybe both, then CRD only, and now maybe Hemi only?! So am I reading this right, that Selec-Speed may not be available on the CRD?...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

For $2000, yes. As far as it's a Jeep not an Escalade, perhaps they should just drop the whole Overland/Summit trims then.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Why in today's modern electronics world would Chrysler even consider mating a Blu-ray player to a DVD resolution screen? 640 x 480 in 2013 on a $2000 system is pathetic.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

July production for rear DVD?! Ouch.

And yet, my 8-year old would kill me. He was really excited about that for our road trips.

Guess I'm waiting a good long while.
