So, I thought I would start a general thread for Aust members with regards to the MY14 KL Cherokee.
I believe Launch Date is June 5th (but I could be wrong).
Regardless, I have pricing and I am a little surprised at the numbers and not in a good way. I guess I was expecting a more aggressive approach with regards to the pricing but that is not to be.
So models and their RRP are:
RRP: $33,500 - 2.4L Tigershark
Longitude (otherwise known as the Latitude in the US) - 3.2L V6 Pentastar
RRP: $44,000 - 3.2L V6 Pentastar
Jeep Active Drive I (AWD in other words)
And here's the kicker below....
RRP: $49,000 - 2.0L Turbo Diesel
However, it has Active Drive II (4WD system with Low)
Trailhawk - 3.2L V6 Pentastar
Active Drive Lock (4WD with Low)
This AllPar article explains the difference: (Scroll down to the 4 Wheel Drive System section)
2014 Jeep Cherokee SUV: modern midsize SUV
All models come with the ZF 9-speed transmissions unlike the UK who have the option of a 6-speed transmission.
The various options have been packaged as such:
Technology Group - $3000
Option only available with Limited and T/H
Electronics Convenience Group - $900
Option available for Longitude, Limited and T/H (Not for Sport)
Uconnect 8.4N AM/FM/BT/Nav - $2,500
Standard on the Limited - Option for the Longitude
Luxury Group - $1500 (only available with the Limited but is your Vented Seats with perforated Nappa Leather)
Panoramic roof - $1900
Option available for Limited and T/H
I think I have interpreted the doc correctly.
So that means for us and the order that we will be placing is:
Limited with 2.0L Turbo Diesel - $49,000
Tech Group - $3,000
Electronics Group - $900
Pano Roof - $1,900
So $54,800 before On Roads and dealer.
Kill me now...
Anyone else purchasing?
