Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Agree on the programming and I'll wait to see what the early experiences of first buyers are before I order. I've read this is an older transmission but I can't remember anything quite like it in my 40 years of driving. If it is the programming why doesn't Jeep just fix it? The downshifting is really annoying at times!

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

New to posting, hi. I just friday put an order in with a local dealer for a '13 v6 Overland with ACC package in Stone White with saddle interior. There were no '12s anywhere in new england with that setup, or I'd have taken them. Now I am reading about stone white being replaced with Bright White, but maybe just on SRT8 models (what does AE stand for?)... frankly I'm a bit confused. I am going to call the dealer and ask, but can anybody here give the quick answer, because I think my dealer may be mistaken-- Is the stone white an exterior paint option for my '13 overland? Of colors I've seen in person, I like it and rugged brown the most, don't want any surprises on delivery!

Thanks.

So... is white available on more than just the SRT models now?

White was already available on non-SRT models. It is a "new" color for the '13 SRT trim. Which wasn't available last MY. However it is currently ONLY available on the limited/special edition "Alpine Edition." So basically you can get a white non-SRT in any of the other trims, but when you see a white SRT, it's an Alpine Edition. Make sense?

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Suspect "White" has always been and will always be available (except on special trim models). The exact shade (Bright, Stone, Artic, Kelvinator) or sometimes just the name may vary. Is particularly popular in hot climates but is also very hard to make "pop". American racing colors are white with blue stripes (or reverse).

ps I draw the line at rap-a-billy.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Does anyone know why the V8 option for the 2013 Overland 4x4 is $2,195 when it's $1,695 for all other models regardless of 4x2 or 4x4?

The 5.7L option on the Overland includes the tow package and heavy duty cooling, whereas on the Limited it does not.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hello new to the forum I will be ordering a 2013 Altitude Edition next week. dealer quoted $38,791 before tax and title, they will not budge from this price. Includes 24Z (V8) package, sunroof, 430n with Garmin Nav, auto trunk lid, 4x4, HID Headlights... Basically fully loaded. What I want to know is this a fair price or should I be able to get better deal?. Thank you in advance.
