Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

So, I think we're joining the 2014 ranks.

My local dealer has searched in vain for a 2013. The two I had found via Dodge's inventory (and that were listed in the respective dealer's websites) are sold (or so they're telling me). One they said they found that was close, well, isn't.

They've agreed to let me order a 2014 (of course), but they're telling me my affiliate price is invoice less 1%, and of course there are no incentives currently on the 2014s.

Not sure what to do except to try and negotiate better numbers (play the no floorplan, etc angle).

Does anyone know if the Limited Safety, Security, and Convenience package is still delayed for production? Trying to decide if we really need it...

Sigh...

Where did you see that it was delayed? I just checked, that package is wide open for ordering.

From earlier discussion here. Maybe I misread, or it was old news.

Now I just need a cooperative dealer. Thanks, Milous, for all the help and advice recently.

Woo hoo. If you find that cooperative dealer, hope you get your 2014!! Milous is the bomb.

Driver's seat memory is Standard on the Limited, Citadel and R/T models.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

You know you're in trouble when a dealer tells you they don't have pricing yet...

Milous, the recent Dodge press release has some conflicting Limited/Citadel information with your first page post. "...12-way power driver seat with memory and power four-way lumbar adjustment, 10-way power front passenger seat, including power four-way lumbar adjustment, ...power folding auto-dimming mirrors with memory..."

That said, are the side mirrors now power folding like the Jeep Summit? I would find that really useful - hopefully not a typo.

Have the seats been upgraded or are they adding adding 8 + 4 and not properly clarifying?

I was wondering the same thing about the power folding mirrors....that would be terrific, but thought I read they were only auto dimming.

Woohoo! My ban has been lifted! For the people wanting the dvd option I read in a article to get tablets instead. The people using them can do what the want, games, movies, and surf the internet. The fact that the car has a hot spot built in with your choice of a day, week, or month (assuming your not using your phone as a hot spot) the tablet is a good choice. You could also choose to keep them in the car or take them with you on the go. Also I called my local dodge dealer Jeff dambrosio here in Pennsylvania. They said that they have 2 limiteds on order and are expecting them in about 4 weeks (spoke with him on monday).

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

I got my first quote on ordering my 2014 Limited.

Here's what I specified
2014 Durango Limited AWD
Tow Package - MSR
Navigation/Liftgate Package
Sunroof
2nd Row Captains Chairs
2nd Row Console
Safety, Security, Convenience

They came back with and MSRP (ready for this) of $47,515

and a price to me of $44,648 which looks more like what the real MSRP is (I had MSRP including delivery at $44720). Feel free to check my numbers.

I realized i neglected to mention my affiliate status, but now I have to call them on their pricing and start working from invoice.

Jeff D'Ambrosio isn't far from me either. I'll have to give them a call in the morning.

My northern NJ dealer still refuses to discuss pricing except in person.

Yo back up off my Kool aid thats my spot lol jk, I have been talking to Larry (good guy) for sometime now as I was interested in a 13' but I heard the rumor about the 8 speed transmission and was holding off until they released the details on the 14. I am glad I waited. I really want a r/t but having the 2nd kid tomorrow morning (scheduled c section) I will most likely be looking at a rallye or limited. I like all the limiteds features but love the looks of the r/t-rallye. So Larry said when I come in to look at the limiteds and if they are not what I want, he said he will try to locate one or put a order in for one that I want.

You're right about the Kool Aid.

Congrats on number 2. Mine are 12 and 14 now.

Can I use your name when I call Larry (feel free to PM it to me) if necessary.

I wholeheartedly second the tablet thing instead of the DVDs. Infinitely more useful. We haven't used the DVD in either of our current vehicles in probably 5 years.

Luckily for us, the Limited with some options is the perfect balance for our needs.
