Spyshots: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Facelift
Most of the cosmetic changes appear to be at the front of the car, where the Jeep grille appears to have been shortened. The new bumper is more curved and has a shape vaguely similar to that on a Land Rover Freelander - tapered upwards in the area of the headlights. Also new are the foglights and the lower grille.
In the US, the biggest change under the grille is the confirmed arrival of the first diesel - the 3.0-liter turbo V6 that’s sold in the European model. This is sourced from Fiat-owned VM Motori and should offer somewhere around 240 horsepower.
Available starting January 2013, the 2014 Grand Cherokee will have an eight-speed transmission licensed from ZF instead of the current five-speed automatic.

2011-2013 Front end looks better. The new model looks WEAK and CHEAP. Like something you'd find on an economy model.
The front end drops, why do they continue to do that that? It?s not a 60?s hotrod dragster. Everybody seems to hate it, yet Jeep continues to keep doing it. I?m so sick of it. STOP WITH THE FRONT END DROP! It looks like they couldn't afford to build it right (level) so they just slapped whatever part they had on it. Perhaps they want keep the aftermarket busy build leveling kits, since they can?t build it right the first time.
