Two 2014 Grand Cherokees spied, one RHD

by David Zatz on

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee spy shot

Andrew Baumea caught two prototype or mule Jeep Grand Cherokees at a Michigan rest area; one barely camouflaged 2014 Grand Cherokee had the 300C-style headlights, with black tape surrounding the active area of the lens, which have been seen in spy shots earlier. Word is that these headlights are just placeholders, while the full size units are being developed or built (or perhaps they just don’t want to give away the final headlight look.) A Jeep Compass influence can be seen on the new front fascia.

A second set of shots shows the front and rear of a dark blue diesel model with right-hand-drive, being tested for export; the fuel filler is clearly marked “Euro Spec Diesel.”

The primary upgrade to the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is almost certainly the transmission, with the current five and six speed automatics to be jettisoned for a state-of-the-art eight-speed automatic which should bring marked gains in acceleration and highway fuel economy. The European version is likely to use a VM 3-liter V6 diesel.
