Re: TRACK your 2014+ Cherokee(KL) build process and delivery HERE!
Success! My Jeep arrived this week. After so long, I had to remind myself of all the features I'd ordered. Taking the first tour around the car, I was impressed with every discovery: gorgeous leather trim, wonderful stereo, heated and ventilated seats, and my personal favourite, the remote lift and close tailgate. I'm still getting used to the lack of need for keys, because of the push button start, but it makes me giggle every time. The attention to detail is amazing. There are design easter eggs all over the car! The front-centre window decal caught my eye but I didn't know what it was until a friend saw it and told me. As for performance, the acceleration is so smooth and stomping on the gas even at full speed on the highway still presses me back in the seat. After waiting so long, I had considered cancelling, after all it took 122 days to arrive. I am so glad I waited. The vehicle could not be more perfect.
I was able to get some oil changes and other service to compensate for the inconvenience. They also are going to cover the installation of the after market hitch. I only need it for a bike rack, so I didn't need a full tow package. It was the only thing I left out, but I can see a use of it now. Probably going with a Curt or a Hidden Hitch.
Thanks for the support. Reading the forums kept me going in the final stretch of waiting. Going out for a drive now!
