Is the RA2 standard even on the non-X Laredo? What about the RA1?

This is something I never understood. The internet has such great potential for dealerships to boost sales at virtually no cost. Just have a dedicated SA spent two hours/day on some forums.

I'm quite active on various auto-forums and I haven't spotted a single post from a local dealership of any brand. I bought two of my previous vehicles in Atlanta just because that specific dealership was present on a specific forum and could answer all of my questions. That SA was simply smart. He sold cars in high numbers to customers all over the country rather than falling asleep in his office..

Does anybody know something more about the RA4 and its function in Europe?

Will this WiFi possibility also work (maybe it got a SIM Card Slot anywhere?) and what about the gadget (App) with the iPhone?

It seems, that it support HD Radio. Because we don't have Sirius in Europe. What kind of HD Radio do that mean? Is it a true DAB+?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It's rather unfortunate that most car salespeople are absolutely clueless when it comes to the vehicles they sell. I don't know if the manufacturers/dealership managers are to blame or if the salespeople just don't care.

People like Milous and Pat are rare. That's regrettable. We need more people like them!

For kicks and giggles I stopped by my local dealer on Friday and spoke with one of the salespeople there. He's been there for years. I talked him up about the 2014 GC, that Jeep will be unveiling it at the Detroit Auto Show, to be released in the next 1-2 months, etc, etc. His responses was comical -> "New models are released in August/September, not before then. I do not know where you got your information from, but it's erroneous."

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You're wasting your time talking to dealers until order banks are open for a specific vehicle you want or it's already on the lot, or on another dealer lot that isn't too far away so they can trade for it.

Guess that would have been a great opportunity to offer him some sort of bet..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

It's interesting how the word about '13 production is making it's way around...

I stopped by a dealer today to get a good look at the '13s (when it wasn't raining), and the sales rep mentioned that Jeep stopped taking orders for the '13's this week, (and added something about one of their orders for a customer was canx'd/didn't go thru, etc)...so what they have on the lot is what they'll have for the foreseeable future.

As expected, there was no discussion of the '14.

The only info I have found for export models just lists "DAB/DMB".

I dunno.

My dealer called me on Friday telling me to get my ass down there on the 14th at 9AM, he had some stuff he wanted me to look over for my MY14 JGC CRD.

That being said, as produciton on the CRD's does not start until the 25th of March, does it really matter if we get our CRD orders in that early?

Or should we really treat "first allocation" of CRD's the same as petrol ones? That is, first ones in the door, are the first to get em when they roll off the line?

Can someone explain to me, why, the more money you spend on a Jeep, the less colour options you have to pick from?
