Spy shots of 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee revealed!

Normally when we see spy shots of a vehicle, the vehicle is camo’d and covered really well. But it looks like representatives from Chrysler couldn’t wait to show off the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, so it’s not heavily masked.

According to autoblog.com, the Grand Cherokee will come with new headlights with LED-running lamps up front with subtle tweaks to the taillamps and re-designed tailgate in the back.

The site also noted that the biggest changes lie under the hood with the addition of a 3.0-liter diesel V6, and the Grand Cherokee will also get a new ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee will make its official debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January, and production is estimated to start in the spring of 2013, Autoblog.com reported.
