Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

As I was searching ways to get a control number for the Rewards program, I of course, found the Treadlightly.org site for $75 fee to join which I saw earlier in this thread. Also found one called accessfund.org with a $35 join fee. Just FYI.

Now, I know you are looking for a 2014, but below is the window sticker to this vehicle with the options you are wanting. Here is the link below. The 2014 should be priced similar to this one. Let me know if you have any other questions. At this time all I can quote you at this time is the MSRP. Let me know if you have any other questions.
In a word...yuck!

Clearly dealers have no clue how to make a sale. At least not the Dodge dealers some of us are encountering.

I'm not sure what this person is even saying. MSRP of what... the 2013 or a 2014? Anybody can find prices for a 2013 so is this saying they have a MSRP for the 2014? What was the purpose of searching the entire us for a 2013? Just to get a price for a similar 2013? I'm lost on this one.

Accessfund!

Gah, I knew there was another one out there but couldn't recall the name.

Good find. I highly recommend people grabbing either of them. At a min, it will make negotiating a decent price a lot easier.

I'm lost too. Sounds ridiculous either way. Thanks for searching far and wide...code for a few keystrokes? Perhaps she (yes, a female) was trying to give me an idea of what MSRP looked like for a 2013. Way ahead of her, and want to stay way, way under anything MSRP. I'm hoping today is my day....I have a phone/screen date with the very popular sales person from South Texas. Fingers crossed, and I will report back.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Tried to put in my order today for a '14 Citadel AWD but Deep Cherry Red was not listed as a color choice in their computer. It was there for the RWD version but didn't come up for AWD. The sales guys were stumped and could only offer maybe it will change on Friday when Chrysler starts accepting orders again.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Are you-all who are having problems dealing with the regular sales staff or the fleet department? The fleet people I've dealt with know that nobody pays over invoice, and do not try to sell you anything other than what you want. Of course, it sounds like the Dodge invoice has been raised, relative to the sticker, so below invoice is the norm.

When I was ready to order a 2007 Explorer, the fleet department woman at Santa Margarita Ford was nice enough to tell me they had the same thing in a 2006 on the lot, just a slightly different color. That day, Ford announced a $3,000 discount on remaining 2006 models, so that is what I bought.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Am I reading the feature sheet correctly in that the only way to get the memory settings for seats is via the Premium Nappa Leather group on the R/T exclusively or through the currently unavailable rear DVD system?

Well, I spoke too soon. Houston salesperson said he would be in around 11 today and he would contact me. Sent him an email about noon with my direct #. Finally called him about 3:30 and got his VM. Called awhile ago to let me know he had taken to day off at the last minute. Very nice, very apologetic, very unproductive afternoon for me. He promises quick and painless with all questions answered, so perhaps by tomorrow this time.......

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Milous - Wife is really wanting the 2014 Durango. Need to be able to access the 3rd row without flipping up the 2nd, which means captains chairs in 2nd row with no center console. The .pdfs you posted in post #1 seem to indicate that you can't delete the 2nd row center console if you get captains chairs - I don't see that option. Is this the case?

That is not the case. The reason for the confusion is that there are actually two different consoles. You will get one of them with captains chairs.

The console as you traditionally think of one is optional if you get the captains chairs. This is a "full" console that sits high between the chairs, acts as an arm-rest, has cupholders and storage. (It also has a 115V power outlet USB charging port and "illuminated" cup holders.) You can't "walk through" to the back with this console.

The second console is a "low profile" console or "mini-console". This is the standard console with the captains charis. It sits maybe an inch or so off the floor and has a couple cup holders and a tray where you can lay items on top of. It is purposely built to allow you to "walk through" to the back.

Here's links to a couple shots of the interior with the mini-console (This happens to be 2012 R/T interior):

Shot - 1 Top view of mini-console
Shot -2 View of Captains chairs with arm-rests


So as long as you don't order the optional "full" console with center armrest and storage with the captains chairs, you will be able to walk through to the back.

One other note...with the standard low profile console, you get the armrests on the inboard side of the captains chairs. With the optional console you no longer have arm rests on the chairs...the top of the console serves as the arm rest.

I'm getting the full console...I only have two kids so won't use the third row that often, and when I do use it the kids are old enough (11 and 13) to operate the tilt and tumble. They will also appreciate the storage and power jacks. If my kids were younger and especially if they still used car seats, I would go with the mini-console for sure.

The other downside of the full console is that if you fold all the chairs flat (3rd and 2nd row), the top of the center console sticks up a few inches, meaning your load floor isn't completely flat....but I'll live with that.

Awesome! Thanks for the response.

Maybe somebody could answer this question for me - does the current 2013 Durango have power adjustable pedals? Will the 2014?
