Any feed Back would be appreciated, might help settle our little domestic argument.
What model are you looking at, as they have different light interiors.
We are getting the light frost interior in a Limited (Lux II upgrade to Nappa Leather), and it will have blak floors.



The Overland will have a light floor, as per Webbers pics.

As Alan said, only you can answer this, but after touching the Nappa leather seats of the Overland and then the standard leather in the Limited, it was a no thought $700 upgrade. It is soooooo (I did this last time) much nicer.
Plus you get ventilated seats which is great getting a little airflow in stupid hot days.

In my mind, they should have kept the 18" wheels as standard as they are in the US, dropped the CD player, and specced the Lux II kit as standard instead.
Similar end pricing and much nicer interior.
Of course I say this because we prefer the look of the 18" rims over the 20's, and want to take that bloody CD player and throw back into the 90's where it belongs and have our centre console back.

So there it is, you can get a better discount, but you have to wait longer. I would call that price discrimination.
That sounds like rubbish. I would presume that Chrysler provide cars to dealers aa fixed price and dealers can sell at what ever they want. The margin the dealer makes is surely their issue and not Chryslers.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Enforcer - you are evil.

Has anyone else (that has taken delivery) been called by their dealership to have a PCM update done? They got it through today apparently and ours is booked in for tomorrow morning. Takes about 40 mins or so.

Unsure what it's for exactly - will find out tomorrow.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Going back to the SD card conversation we had a while back.
U-Connect will not recognise SDXC cards, they need to be SDHC.
