Hi everyone. I'm pretty new to Jeeps overall, but I recently started looking at the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Short back story;
I currently drive a 2011 Subaru STI. My wife and I have a 4 month old and just before she was born I was wanting to trade it in for an SUV. The idea was to get something more practical, but I still wanted something sporty and somewhat off-road capable.
I was interested in a 2015 Subaru Forester XT, but she talked me out of it. Lo and behold, a month ago, we did get one. However, it was to replace her previous car. Whenever we need to go anywhere with the baby, we always take her car, because it has plenty of room. With my car, I can barely fit her stroller in my trunk and the gas mileage is not great, much less the ride which is harsh for her.
It's been a fun car the past 5 years I've owned it and no mechanical issues in it's 43K miles. But it's just not very practical anymore. I had never really considered Jeeps before, but there really isn't much out there in the same price range as the Forester that's AWD, sporty, decent gas mileage and off-road capable.
So, all that brings me to now. An SRT is out of my price range, but mid $30K's is what I'm looking to spend at most. The Laredo Altitude 4X4 in silver is what I'm interested in getting. My STI is paid off, so around $25K from its sale or trade in would go towards the new SUV.
I did sign up on tread lightly and the 3 Jeep dealerships here in Vegas honor the 1% below invoice. However, can anyone confirm the actual invoice price for a 2015 GC 4X4, Altitude? One dealer said invoice was $37K, this website(2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Prices: MSRP, Invoice, Holdback & Dealer Cost
)has it listed at $31K, but a couple other websites have it listed for higher, one at $35,615 with MSRP at $37K.Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2015 Grand Cherokee pricing and options
