I'm thinking (hoping) SRT knew the new tranny would make up a lot of the performance, more than we were expecting. That's why no huge HP bump.

Not a fan of groupthink and limitless congratulatory high-fives.

Much better Pappy. Hopefully enough people in the circle there are complaining about the wheels. I understand the WK1 guys argument on their wheels and the drastic change to the tech style wheel on the 12's and 13's that were similar to the Cayenne wheel....but the '14 wheel is down right wrong and shouldnt be put on anything but a 25K dollar RAM or Durango. Thats really sad

The more I look at the exterior pictures the less improvements I see somehow....once again though, the interior (console) is very nice in all the pictures I've seen so far.

Thanks Hammer. Its sad that they even thought about putting wheels like that on a 50k+ suv. They definitely nailed it with the interior.

Thanks so much for posting all the images & spec info Bernie! Ace having one place (even though other threads have links).

I reckon it looks awesome in red with these CGI-esque shots, but when I saw the Autoblog link of the REAL rig... http://www.autoblog.com/photos/2014-...photo-5568072/..

The high-riding stance is amplified, as are the cheapish-looking rims, Audi-tryhard tallights and odd front bumper/grill slope & balance. Pass . Interior though.. Hell yeah!!

So much for the 6.2 supercharged rumours to, eh...

The 6.2 rumors were not referring to a release now. In the coming months the cars should be getting it first. The Jeep, after that sometime.

Hold out for another year and then pick up a very late 14 with a s/c, or early 15. This is my educated guess.The 14 model year is going to be looong!
