I would need to be in front of a computer. The options are always off by a bit which messes up comparing... Like I said, it isn't close just not as bad as it looks

Re: 2014 Canadian Pricing for Grand Cherokee

In a way, you can't blame them. They probably figure that the majority of sales will be Limiteds/Overlands. Those two models have about a $10,000 difference where the Laredo has about a $5500 difference.

If I recall, they had to add a third shift just to keep up with demand. So, they probably figure they might as well maximize their margins up here because the majority of sales are south of the border anyway. Whatever they sell up here is just a nice bonus with bigger profit margins.

Canada has less of an order allotment than Southern California when it comes to cars (GM rep explained that to me once). So I see the problems.

Re: 2014 Canadian Pricing for Grand Cherokee

Wow, thats incredible. I think alot of the Laredo sales up here go to fleets - car rental companies. I'm seeing alot of 2012-2013 Laredo's on dealer lots that are ex rental. So it makes sense then....supply and demand. They can afford to charge more up here and whatever they sell is a bonus with the bigger margins.

I'm not sure why you're making excuses or apologizing for Chrysler Canada. It is as bad as it looks. Canadian buyers are getting screwed.

I'm not sure which options you're mentioning, but those are the "build and price" base prices for 4x4 versions of each vehicle.

If you read back a few posts, I don't think it is right and I wouldn't defend it I was simply stating a fact that the numbers are not comparable exactly. Yes they are the base vehicle price but I also mentioned the base vehicles don't have the same build in Canada, some don't even come with the same motor. The base price for a 4x4 summit in the U.S. comes with a V6 ($2795 upgrade to)V8 in the U.S.) and in Canada it comes in the BASE PRICE with the V8..... Only the SRT is Exactly the same.

All I am saying is that if people want to compare the differences it will take you a while to configure the vehicles the same so that you can compare the actual difference. When you come up with the final numbers the spread is closer, not saying it is appropriate or anything just that you are comparing oranges and tangerines right now. Yep they are the same family but the guts are different. Base price doesn't mean it has the same components except within the same country and that applies to most car manufacturers.
