2014 Grand Cherokee spied

by David Zatz on

Allpar reader John Semancik spotted this 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee driving along in Ypsilanti, Michigan today. He said that the wheels were similar to the 2004 Columbia Edition.

A revised SRT8 version is also being tested, with a different grille and other details; this one appears to b e a standard Grand Cherokee, with towing apparatus integrated into the rear bumper. Unlike the white Grand Cherokee we spotted earlier in the summer, it did not have holes drilled into the bumpers. We were told that the 2014 Grand Cherokee would have a “new, much-improved tailgate,” which seems to be camouflaged in this test car.

The primary change in the 2014s will most likely be the “Torqueflite 8” eight-speed automatic transmission, which most observers expect to substantially increase both acceleration and gas mileage.  The 2014 is also expected to have revised bumpers and headlights, the large touch-screen stereo, possibly a start-stop system and systemic fuel-saving measures, and the second-generation UConnect system with UConnect Access.
