Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Maybe this is a stupid question but what is a smart touch screen compared to a normal touch screen. I just noticed the "smart" when I read the list of new features. Thanks.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Milous,

If/when the ordering bank opens on Dec. 5th, is there going to be enough information out there to know everything that we can order? I imagine the only we we are going to get the pricing is when we actually order it, please correct me if I'm wrong.

AFAIU more intuitive UI.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Regular touch scream: virtual buttons.
"Smart" touch scream: understands things like swipes and muti finger operations.

Few today lack these features but one in my 88 Reatta is the original kind.

It doesn't appear that the "Smart" feature is going to make it on the 2014 radios, the term was used early on but is now absent on internal documents.

Yes, option info will be available at the time order banks open. Detailed/firm pricing may not be announced until a month or two later.

I wonder what that will mean for price negotiating. I've never ordered a vehicle before, but I was under the impression that the price was negotiated prior to/when the order being placed rather than after or when it is delivered.

I agree, I would think you would need that information before you place the order. I don't know if I would put money down to order if the numbers weren't solid beforehand.

Best to negotiate a price based on what the dealer invoice cost will be, for example, "2% over invoice", "$500 over invoice", "$500 below invoice". Better to do this even when you know the price.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Even with all the advance information we get, I would never order a car before seeing one first on a dealers lot, and taking a spin.

If you need to be first, you will possibly pay a price for the privilege.

"It doesn't appear that the "Smart" feature is going to make it on the 2014 radios"

My '12 Laredo already has that (Android 4.0.4).
