Any thing better or updated that will come out in the 2014 model, except the 3.0 turbo diesel & possibly the front parking sensors, should be applied to the 2013 model as a update

Hopefully they will have figured out what is causing the draining batteries & rising air suspension while the vehicle is parked for extended periods, like over night
I believe that it all comes down to the new Powernet Electronic Architecture & the 8.4 radios that never really shut down, even though the the touch screen goes blank, the radio goes into Standby mode, waiting on a wireless signal. The signal may be coming from Chrysler as a update or from the Owner as a Start Up or Door Unlock wireless signal

I am sure that several of you have experienced your Cell phone battery draining in a fairly short period of time, at times when you have traveled to a place that is a Dead Zone. The cell phone is constantly searching for a signal in any dead zone, if you have not learned to turn the phone off at times that you are in those dead zones
