Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

let me be clear on this.I was going to order a 2013 Altitude tomorrow.Reason is I wanted to trade my 2011 70th Anniversary while it still has resonable value.My local dealer says no 2014's will be ready till next year at this time.(swears to it)....I'm not feeling good about this whole process.My unit has 10,000 miles on it,giving me 27,500 for it.I'd really not like to wait till this plays out in a year or not.The longer I wait the more money difference I'll have to pay.What do you think now?

They're going to low ball you on trade now just as much as they will in 2-3 months from now, so I think you can negotiate a better price in a couple of months or even in Feb/March depending on how you approach the negotiations and you should definitely make more than one dealership compete for the best price no matter how far away the other dealers are, and this would be for a 2014, not a 2013. I think you're making a mistake getting a 2013 now. As soon as the 2014s roll out 3 months later you'll be disappointed. There are a lot of changes coming for the 2014s. Order banks for the 2014s open December 5th of this year. Production starts late January. You could even get a 2013 cheaper in March then now and those future incentives will make up for any changes in the value of your 2011.

I agree 100%. Dealers will tell you anything to get the sale today. Once you walk out the door they may never see you again. They don't want you to buy from another stealership or even worse another company.
Also, it's been proven time and time again on this forum that often times sales people are the last to know any true information about what the future holds for certain vehicles/specs/features. No offense to Pat the dealer guy in Illinois. He does his homework and has been quite helpful to this board. If he wasn't so far away I'd consider buying from him. A few months isn't too long to wait just to see what happens with the 14s.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

My experience is that sales droids do not as a rule read boards with accurate info. But if Milous says it is so, you can pretty well bank on it.

I recall back in mid-May 2010, several dealers around here swore the 2011 GC would not show up until late September. The official announcement was May 21 and orders could be placed in early July, with a few actually taking delivery a few weeks later. So much for dealer advice.

So bottom line, 2014s will be here a LOT sooner than this time next year.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I think I'll do a 24 month lease agreement on the 2013 Altitude which will give me a pre-set residual amount I can use towards a 2015 if I don't want to keep the 2013.Once again I ask"what do you think of that deal?"

He's either lying or clueless. Ask him if he'd like to place a bet, say $5,000 or so... I'll personally match the bet, I could use an extra $5k anytime.

The last day of production for 2013 models is January 17th. Order banks close in just a few weeks. Order banks are already closed for SRT models (except for Alpine and Vapor models which close at the end of the month).

You can order a 2014 model in two months (December 5th). 2014 production starts in late January.

DON'T rush your purchase! IF you want a 2014 then wait a couple months and order one. The trade in value today vs the value in a few months will be negligible (unless you drive 1000 miles/week).

Don't think much of it at all, you're going to be 100% committed for two years. If you order a '13 now it will be almost one model year old by the time you get it...

I think you are right.I'm going in tomorrow and run those thoughts by the dealer.He is going to smell a deal going away and come up with a new 'better' plan.Thanks again guys I find it hard to wait even a few months but I'm sure it's for the best.

[QUOTE=Milous;692641]Don't forget about the bet


Count me in on the bet as well. I'll put down $5K. I trust Milous over any sales guy/gal in the business even though he won't let us know what the big secret "tidbit" is about the 2014 diesels.

You and I and the rest of the JG members can agonize together waiting for the 2014s. It'll be worth it.
