Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Not in the media but possibly the best thread for this.

I have read the Caradvice figures for April sales and notice the JGC only sold 1014 units last month compared to 1368 units the previous month.

Prado sold 1719 in March and 1622 in April.Why the sudden drop in sales? I know that Prado has a new model which would help and a lot of dealers are buying up big to boost sales for the month and count the vehicles as sold.

Hate to see the JGC drop to LC 200 levels in sales.

Jeep to expand production to six countries; launch new compact SUV, Grand Wagoneer seven-seater | CarAdvice

I know I'm being silly here (maybe), but I really don't like the thought of the Cherokee update being built in China.

I think we'll be hanging on to our US built one for a while then (when it launches next month).

Prado would be the major factor, not that it's new, just has a new ugly face, same old stuff underneath.

Dealers stock orders do NOT count towards new car sales. If a dealer was to register a car (that counts as a sale) then the value of the car drops immediately. They only do that to demo vehicles.

New car sales are at a two year low, the last thing a dealer would do is order more stock than they absolutely need. it would kill their cash flow.

New car sales hit a two-year low as sales down for fourth month in row | News.com.au

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

Front page girl no less.

http://goautomedia.cdn.on.net/goauto...toNews_730.pdf

Edited to add: I don't agree for one moment the 'enemy within' comment made by the journo. I don't think Laredo sales will be impacted by the KL. Two very different vehicles. Infact, the pricing of the KL Limited, fully loaded may even push some buyers the other way ie: towards the Grand. (perhaps)

Quote:
The Grand Cherokee will also face a new enemy within, with the smaller, more stylish Cherokee expected to become a volume seller for the brand, potentially eating into the cheaper end of the bigger SUV’s sales.

Re: Grand Cherokee in the media

I've just read this review posted on the NZ Herald today with regards to the MY14 GC SRT and had a bit of a laugh.

I love this quote:

Quote:
It's purpose is essentially to make the driver feel good and yes, perhaps a little bit smug as hippies burst into tears when it rumbles past with its 300g CO2/km-plus emissions.
