There has been a change to the B&P Cherokee feature on the Jeep site. It happened about 2 weeks ago. I thought maybe it was just a glitch and would go back but it hasn't. Looks like it is permanent. Too bad.
When building a 4WD Latitude I used to be able to select the Cold Weather Group as an option for $595. It gave the flowing features...
All-Season Floor Mats
Exterior Mirrors with Heating Element
Heated Front Seats
Heated Steering Wheel
Power Heated Mirrors
Remote Start System
Windshield Wiper De-Icer
I want the heated mirrors and remote start. Heated seats are ok as well.
Despite it still being there listed as it's own option to get it now you also have to add the Comfort/Convenience Group option at freaking $1995 that adds all kinds of things I do not need and don't want to pay for. I do not want power seats for example which it gives.
Seems odd that they list it the way they do? CWG is listed as a separate package for $595 but to actually get the CWG you have to also add the $1995 CCG. So the CWG actually runs you $2590.
Oh well. car mfg's are always trying to force you to get things you don't want to get what you do. It isn't something new. I am just disappointed that I was able to just get the CWG when the B&P page 1st came out but now you can't unless you add another $2K package with it.
So to keep within budget I would have to axe the 3.2L V6 if I wanted the CWG so I could cover the extra expense of having the CCG forced on me. I then have power seats which I don't really want.
It has changed yet again. You now can get the Cold Weather Group option without also having to get the Comfort/Convenience group option as well once more. The price has risen to $795 instead of the original $595. Better than being forced to get a extra $1595 option you don't want though.
