The members also report that the prototypes had a GPS and a system that analyzed various parameters. The Wrangler Unlimited is a diesel version while the Wrangler Sport is a petrol.

As a result, expect the 2014 MY Grand Cherokee to be launched here.

    Are you living in the Ivory tower? Just look at your local Sunday newspaper! You must be connected to either Dodge/Jeep.

    Who wants to buy these poorly built, poor quality vehicles at exorbitant price? They can’t sell these gas guzzlers in USA at $5000 to 6000 discount of MSRP.

    1. Jake Blue says:

      Are you kidding? These two models don’t stay on the showroom floors! If anything, these two models have sticker price premiums applied to them and excluded from brand-wide discounts and incentives. As for the quality, there is not a vehicle built in the USA that lasts as long, offers as much resale value or has as much brand loyalty as the Jeep brand. So if India doesn’t want them, there’s more than enough market for them right here at home!
