2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee will get a new design and will be more fuel-efficient

Article by Christian A., on August 2, 2012

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee will be refreshed at the middle of its cycle. Its fuel economy rating will be improved with the use of a new eight-speed automatic transmission that debuted in the Chrysler lineup in the 300 in 2011. Paddle shifters will be offered in all models.

Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne said that several of its vehicles will be available with both eight- and nine-speed automatics, which will go on sale as early as the 2013 model year. As a result, the fuel efficiency improved by up to 16%. It isn’t probable that the Grand Cherokee will receive drastic enhancements, considering that it will get an eight-speed, if we are to believe Jeep garage’s tweets.

But what’s sure to happen is that it will offer better mileage. Jeep will be available with an eight-inch navigation touch screen, which makes it 1.5 inch bigger than the existing model. The interior of the 2014 model will get minor revisions. It will also get a modified rear fascia.

The company will release a special version of the 2013 SRT8 named the “Alpine Edition,” which would probably be a special trim package. There are also rumors that it will get a set of 20-inch five-spoke “vapor chrome” wheels and a bright white paint finish.
