If child #1 is in a carseat still do yourself a favor and get the Capt chairs without the center console. Otherwise you will not have access to the 3rd row

Those same files were posted here quite awhile ago, they are at the end of post # 1 in this thread.

While they list the Rallye separately in those documents, it is not really considered a separate model, but rather a package that is added to the SXT model. They list it separately to make it easier to compare features and options.

Yeah, agreed. I guess its back to the local dealer and see if I can get them to agree on a price and do a swap. Of course, I found today that the only 4 Durango Crew's equipped how we want are at the dealer that doesn't talk price over the phone/email.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Do I have this right?

A 2014 Limited AWD at invoice prices out as follows
36704 base vehicle
886 tow
975 sun
797 nav/lift
1064 safety
40426

which is a few hundred less then a similar 2013 Crew (once delivery is added).

With an affiliate program I could expect about 2% under invoice?

Starting to wonder if we should wait, but still no idea how good of a deal I can get on a 2013 :-(

Might depend on where you go....at least 5 to 7% below invoice apparently in certain locations. Can you go to Virginia or TX or DC? Might be worth holding out for the 8 speed tranny, or so I'm hoping.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Thanks everyone for the wealth of knowledge on this site. I've been watching this thread for a while now waiting for the pricing and am glad there hasn't been too much of an increase.

I'm narrowing down my choices and the Durango is pretty much at the top of my list. Looked at the new MDX but couldn't justify the price difference with the poor 3rd row space and lack of AC vents in the back (the only AC vents for the entire 2nd and 3rd rows are the 2 in the back of the center console) which won't work for us down in Texas! The infiniti JX has crazy deals right now and is close to the price range of the Durango but I can't get past the lack of power, CVT trans, and for me the styling (wife doesn't mind it though and this car will be her daily driver). The technology on the JX is great though.

Really, the challenge to the Durango is a slightly used Infiniti QX56. While still more expensive than the Durango, that thing is a beast!

Our 2nd child is on the way, hence looking at bigger vehicles, and should arrive in mid-Novenber. I'm just not sure I can wait until then for the rear entertainment package is available, but I really want that option. Might have to wait it out though and look for used QX's in the meantime.


Laurel, I live in the Houston area. Can you PM me the contact info for the rep/dealer you've been working with? With all of the trouble everyone has been experiencing, I'd like to know who to go to.

Thanks, Rob

Lol...I had it narrowed down to the same three vehicles...and ruled the MDX and JX out for similar reasons to yours. One of the features I want is adaptive cruise. To get it on the MDX you need to go with the Advanced package...and then add on a couple more accessories to get it to look the way I would want and the MDX ends up almost $10K more than the Durango. I didn't realize the lack of rear vents though! I ruled it out on price alone.

And the JX tech is indeed cool (the 360 top-view camera is slick.) I wasn't thrilled about it's driving performance however. I actually didn't mind the CVT itself...it was more the overall ride. Wife did like the fact you could get dual sunroofs though. Wish you could get the panoramic sunroof on the D.

Love the interior...hate, hate, hate the exterior styling! I just can't get past it.

Our two children are growing up (11 and 13), so looking at downsizing from a minivan.

One other vehicle that would have gotten our consideration is the 2014 Toyota highlander. It's larger than the '13 (though I think still a little smaller than the Durango), will have adapative cruise as an option. The really nice feature is the second row seating. You can get captains chairs with a removable / stowable center tray / console of sorts.

The new highlander won't be available until early '14 however.

That being said, if Dodge doesn't hurry up and get the models with the DVD system delivered by November, it may force me to wait and see what the Highlander will bring....

DC or eastern Virginia are doable. I was looking at the group buy thread on the JCG forum, but couldn't figure out which DC or VA dealer they were dealing with.

Does anyone here happen to know (and can PM me the info)?

I agree on the 8 speed potentially being worth it, but we figured it was about a $200/annual savings based on the projected fuel economy gains and our typical usage.

Does it matter which affiliate program we go through? I'm looking at joining the Access Fund today since it takes 30 days before you're eligible to get a control number. That way I'm set up to work a deal on a 2014 if we can't get a 2013 (and if we do its a donation to a worthy cause).

Thanks again all.

Two children? A Focus or Escape would be just fine. How on Earth did people have children before such large vehicles?

Know there was a guy in Tyson's Corner offering a great deal. I'll try to find his name. Houston dealer didnt care which affiliate program, and he said he could order now because 30 day waiting period over before vehicle would be in. Don't know if others would handle the same way. You at probably right about fuel savings with the 8 speed, but I keep hearing it is also smoother and peppier.
