Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Well, I used Dodge's inventory search and checked every dealer within a 200 mile radius. Not one has a 2013 Crew equipped how we want it (after deciding to add the captains chairs/console)

So we either stick with the bench...or hope the numbers work out on the 2014 and I can convince my wife that ordering/waiting is the way to go.

Sigh....

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Having similar shady experiences here in central TX. I had an order in for a 2013 Citadel for 43K. When I saw the 2014's were about to be released I decided to show some patience for the better gas mileage and tail lights. I just got a response from my dealer saying the Invoice price is now 45K due to, get this, THE BLURAY PLAYER! I would point out that the entertainment system was included in the original quote for the 2013. I am about to have a fun conversation with them, needless to say...

Okay, Mark in Houston has magical powers. I didn't even order my Durango Citadel until last Friday.....missed the first round of ordering in July. Just got an email from him telling me I have a VIN to go with my VON, and my vehicle might be produced in the next two to three weeks. I'll believe it when I see it, but I was consoling myself with early October. My husband didn't want to be too early in the production process in case there were any hiccups. Hope there aren't any. Mark and I discussed the possibility of a JeepGarage forum tailgate at the dealership in case a slew of member vehicles arrive all at once. That could be interesting....

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

We're in escrow on two more rental houses. The one we're buying for $49,000 will rent for $750 plus (we have one in the same neighborhood rented at $835). While built in 1969, it has just been re-done with new a new bathroom, kitchen, paint, carpet, and so forth. Some of the rental houses also appreciate, the investment icing on the cake (one we have in Las Vegas we bought for $95,000 at the end of 2011 is now worth $135,000 plus).

Why is all of that in this forum?

A Limited (only way to get the V8) with the captain's chairs and navigation would probably cost me $42,000 out the door. That is just way too much when the expenditure and the opportunity cost of lost investment income are added together.

The 4Runner weighs much less, so its V6 would be OK, but it may be nearly as expensive as the Durango.

I think I'll go buy new seat foam & springs for the Explorer while they are still available, and just keep it another 100,000 miles. Reading about those here who have kept 4Runners for well over 200,000 miles makes me think I'm silly to be considering replacing it with just 159,400 miles on it.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Awesome news today, spoke with South County Dodge, in St. Louis, MO and received great news saying I could order the 2014 Durango. Spoke with the owner about ordering an Limited or R/T. Believe the wife is leaning toward the R/T. There was no mention from the owner saying the Rear DVD Entertainment Center was a late availability. So I was encouraged when she informed she could probably have in my hands before the end of September.

I'm one of those 4Runner owners and it has been a wonderful, reliable workhorse. 125,000 miles and runs like a charm. She's not going anywhere any time soon. Glad there's room in the garage for a Durango. Speaking of which, do new vehicles no longer come with floor mats?

Dealers will rarely mention "late availability" items as they don't want to jeopardize the order. Rear DVD, like the Grand Cherokee is indeed late availability. Was told today that the plant should be able to start production for models with the rear DVD systems on September 17th. I would plan on October for delivery of your vehicle.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

Figured I'd have some fun and try to exactly calculate my total cost to the cent and see if I match the dealer. In California the DMV site has a TTL calculator which makes it easier and there's a cap of $80 for dealer doc fees and $75 Affiliate fee. Here's my best guess:

Invoice $41,304
Options $3,459
Dest $995
Total $45,758
-3% -$1,372.74
Total $44,385.26
TTL $4,383.00
Fees $155
Total $48,923.26

I understand the production delay on the DVD option. Does that mean a Durango with the DVD option is currently 'orderable' though?

It can be entered but will come up with a build error and stay that way until the restriction is lifted OR that entire option will not be selectable.

Milous can likely check which it is in this case.
