Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous,my dealer's jaw dropped when I offered the $5,000 bet."You mean they will be producing 2014's in February" NO WAY!!!!(no mention of putting up any money) he says.Enter, the guy who makes the final numbers on deals and also orders all the new cars.Both of these guys are very interested by now still not offering up any money."We don't see this as happening but the orders will be filled much earlier this year"I told them about the advice offered on this forum and they in turn agreed that would be my most wise decision.About four or five thousand bucks wiser.Buying a 2013 and then trading for a 2014 soon as they arrived would be nice but not smart.So,if some wonderfull deal doesn't suddenly appear it looks like I will be waiting for December 5th to order a 2014.By the way both of these guys were really nice to plan a purchase and I will be buying my next vehicle from them.Thank you all for your input.(I'll be lurkin)

Jeep already had a show (for Jeep dealers) in Vegas showing off the 2014 and telling them when they could be ordered and when the would be produced (Jan/Feb of 2013). These guys were either clueless or more likely pretending to be clueless. Good for you!

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Well the numbers guy admitted he attended the Vegas show and that's when they both mellowed and kind of hinted it would be best to "wait and see" .I assured them I would be back with my trade Dec.5th and we would order that day if we could.My salesguy, I'm sure, had a place ready for my 70th Anniversary black 10,000 mile cherry.I guess I can return to my life for now and "wait" On the way out sales guy said he never used JEEP GARAGE but he did use ALLPAR.COM. I looked last night,I'll stay on this site,way better for us.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I ordered a 2013 Overland Summit with the hemi and off road package a couple of weeks ago. I turned in a Chevy 2500 crew cab 4X4 2500HD the same day I ordered the Jeep for maximum trade in value. When the Jeep comes in, it will be subject to what ever rebates are available at that time. This is the fifth Jeep I've purchased from the same dealer. Needless to say, the dealer treats me very well and I get a free loaner when ever I bring a car in for service. Was going to wait for a 3.0 TDi diesel but informed that the earliest delivery would be late April, early May and there would be dealer allocations and dealer markups on the sticker price.

We're waiting for this look on the future Overland Midnight edition or whatever anyway. On to 2014...

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

funny thing happened yesterday,a new Overland Summit Hemi with the black/saddle seats air lift all that stuff was offered with a modest DISCOUNT NO LESS.Showed up at my local dealership.I"m thinking 8speed tranny ?Don't like the 5speed I have ,what will this be? I'm going to drive it tomorrow,someone here predicted a super deal might be in the works........I will report the outcome....

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

By "8 speed tranny" I was referring to waiting for 2014"s or going with this 2013 model which has 6 speed.I wonder which will be the lesser of the two evils?My 2011 5 speed really does some odd shifting sometimes,most times it is fine.Must be the operator.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Pat or Milous - can the Trailhawk still be ordered? If so, any idea when the order bank closes? Thanks much for any info.
- nevermind, I just saw the answer in the 2014 thread.

Thanks much for the updates gentlemen.
