Hey everybody, my name is Jeff and I live in Brewster, NY. I just joined as I am looking to buy a 2014 Grand Cherokee for my fiance. Never owned a Jeep before but I drive a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 Cummins diesel, so I am a part of the Mopar family.

I really like the new diesel GC's. We've test driven both the diesel and the V6 (she drives too much to pay for the gas for a V8) and the diesel is much better. Only problem is the diesel option is expensive, and if we were to buy one it would have to have the luxury group for her and I dont think I would be able to stop myself from checking off the ORAII option. The other model I really like is the Altitude, if they made that with a diesel it would be sitting in my driveway right now! So a diesel Limited with the lux group and ORAII is around $49k, and the Altitude is about 39K, which one would you guys pick? I know there have been issues with the 2014s, should I wait till the 2015's come out? Thanks.

I'd do what I did and order a Limited Diesel with Lux II, ORA II, RA4 and Block Heater form the DC Group buy. Price was just under $44K + tax and tags. I'll be renting a car and driving to DC from Ithaca to pick it up.

Thanks! Yes I definitely won't be paying msrp, I saw the DC group buy and that is an awesome deal. I told my local dealer about it and they didn't believe me, only got them down to 1.5% below invoice. I know the order banks are closing for 2014, do you know if that group buy will work for 2015?

The DC Group buy has not (yet at least) been renewed for 2015. I expect they'll do something, but I'm guessing not quite as good a deal as it is now.

The 2014 banks will be closing VERY soon. They were supposed to have closed a while ago, but as of a couple days ago people were reporting they were still able to order 2014s.

I couldn't get anyone close to the group buy price either. Much cheaper for me to spend time and rent a car.
