So my 2014 didn't have a cabin air filter from the factory. I added one to help my wife with her allergies when she is in the truck. Is it really needed??? Considering up to this truck and her Jeep we never had them before, so it is questionable. You have the option of adding one but otherwise you don't have one to change.
The only thing I think it helps with is keeping dust from building up on the heater core. As far as helping with allergies, you are not in a sealed environment so the second you open the door or roll down a window the entire cabin is "contaminated" if you will.
I installed one in my 2016 but it restricted the air flow too much for my liking and I removed it. Hated having the fan running on high making all that noise just to get some air moving.
