Maybe it is a good excuse for a trip to Seattle, but such a deal is surely also available in a place with the population of southern California (or northern, just a six hour drive to San Francisco).

I would think so also. As for the trip, it looks like we are hitting winter. Nature is on display with the beautiful changes in color, but the likelihood of rain is higher. This summer was awesome btw!!

I need to find a way to rent one so I can get a long enough test drive to be sure I'm not make a mistake with regard to seat comfort.
I'm sure you've seen vertrkr's pictures. That's a sandstone Citadel and I must say... that color seems to work with the chrome very well. You've put together a nice package for your area.

I wish I could comment on the seats but I have the Limited and it's a different leather. I find the Limited's seats to be comfortable and nicely adjustable in all directions. The padding on mine feels good, I don't have any issues with that.

It sounds like you have a solid understanding on the pricing.

I have since seen the thread, Very cool. I ended up getting that good a deal from my FFP discount and they gave me a little extra off that too. Cash of course made no difference as to them it's all the same save some time on paperwork. All in all, Koons was a pleasure to deal with despite not having Nadar as my sales person.

I did pull off that stupid Koons crown from the rear of my car though. I hate buying a $50K car and then advertising free for someone. you want to put a license plate frame on my car fine, but don't put stickers on it. You put a sticker on my car, then pay me for the ad space.

The impression I got from Nader was that the higher discount applied only to the GC because that's where the volume was on the group buy.

Koons is one of the Top Jeep dealers in the country. Higher Volume on Jeeps means higher discounts.

Yeah, That would be a good deal for a 2014 R/T. It's around what I ended up with.

Good deal, does that include the $1,000 incentive? Also, starting on the 15th there's a rumor there will be another or larger incentive.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Yesterday I realized that I had not priced an R/T, so did and found it a little over $3,000 less than a Citadel. I drove an RT yesterday, and liked it.

The exhaust was not too loud. For a while, I had an exhaust system on my 1996 Impala SS which was so loud it would set off car alarms in parking structures, but that drone gets old very quickly, and the Durango R/T does not drone.

The ride did not seem too stiff or rough, but smoother and quieter than my Explorer.

I also had realized that a black interior, something I've never had, would work with the ventilated seats and remote start.

I have a black R/T, good choice.

The difference between the R/T and the Citadel is $2,000 no matter if you get the RWD or AWD. once you spec match, there is nothing that the Citadel has that the R/T doesn't minus some chrome which I think (my opinion) looks bad or not as good as the solid black look. I got everything minus DVD/Bluray (didn't want to wait and didn't need it, no kids yet) and a rear center console so my dog could chill on pads on the ground when I have 6 people in the car. It came out to $49,400 with destination. The only option the Citadel has that the R/T doesn't (from their build site) is skid plates which you can get from Mopar if you ask.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you're paying $2,000 for chrome accents and Nappa leather option as a standard.
