short answer, no. the '14 cupholders are the same in that there is a molded lip for the light, but no light, and no wiring going up to it.
I installed a piece of EL wire in mine and tapped it into my IP surround that is also now a white EL wire.

I know it's a little late, but I am looking for a thread on this topic. But No it's not, but I did install one without any issues. All i did was make my own wiring. Just took apart the connector on the cup holder, ran the positive to a positive and then grounded the ground. My positive was off the cig lighter, but not the main power. It has it's 12v output, a ground, and also a smaller wire which controls the LED that surrounds it which is also controlled by the factory dimmer. Which the oem one is like that too. So by tapping that, it's like it was factory lol

a plug and play kit from Benny would be convenient for those wanting to add this
The thing is there is no physical wiring in our car that the old ones have. Now maybe the plug for the wiring is still there, I don't know where it is, but i would think it would just be another set of wires coming off the main wiring harness that runs behind the dash. With that not being there I think the only thing he could do is get the old cup holders, get the plug that goes into the cup holder socket to power the leds and include that. Then just have the positive and negative wires there for install on a tap. I could be wrong, but that's the only way I see this being installed without any supporting wiring or plugs already on the car.

Did you get the wiring console and does it work nicely? I have a 14 GT idk if that makes a difference, I don't have a problem with wiring them myself but hell if it's plug and play
No i just bought the part. I didn't get any harness or anything. Only wiring i got was the plug and wires that were wired to the leds in the cup holder. I ended up taking about that connector and making my own wire ends to then tap into the car.
