Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Here we are less than two weeks from order banks opening and nobody has any information. If I believe my dealer, who I've dealt with for years and has always been reliable, they don't know a thing. We don't have colors, option packages, we haven't even seen an official picture yet. All I see on TV are commercials for the 13 GC.

I can't imagine how they are going to open order banks on January 8 unless Milous' tidbit meant February 8.

This is like a stealth product launch. Incredible.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm sure they're trying to get rid of all the '13's.

I wonder if Milous is somehow in some of those commercials. Kinda like "Where's Waldo"?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The order banks opening date is primarily for dealers to have cars in stock for the sales launch. GM used to (maybe still do) give the dealers a list to choose from and an allocation number. They wanted the dealers to have an assortment on the lot at launch. Could it be that Chrysler is doing the same thing?

We're all waiting to order, but aren't most cars sold off the lot these days.

Usually he's just on the blury horizon or can just see part of an arm behind a tree. Keep a close eye, he's there.

^HA!
That would be his style. Very sneaky & stealth-like.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

the 2011 launch was the same way folks. Without JeepGarage NONE of you would know anything until the 14's hit the lot.......and thats the way 99% of 14' buyers are!

But salesmen and dealers are always so helpful & only want what's best for me.

Scottina,
What is the exact color of your Jeep in your picture? I haven't seen ANY around here that color.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I have an inferno red myself but the deep cherry crystal looks very maroonish more than a red. I like it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Agree, I love it. Unfortunately it won't be around for 2014. Oh, you can get a nice cashmere Summit for 2014 though.....
