Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

No seat memory capability on the Laredo? Grrrrrrrrrrr!! They force the $1700 E package on you, with the only useable option being a power drivers seat, and there's no memory function?!

They are making the Base Laredo a fleet vehicle that you basically can't get any options.

$1700 for a powered drivers seat...outrageous. Tack on no memory function. Would be happy with the fleet version, but jeep can't build a base laredo when I need it.

Sure they can. They are already built and have them waiting on dealer lots. The 13s aren't dogs and you seem to be looking for a basic Jeep. You can search inventories in your area right from Jeep.com.

Have you contacted a dealer that also does Ram contractor/special purpose sales? I think they call it business line or something like that.

You might be able to get a base version that way.

Yup, but as I said, the 13s are on the lots. The 14's are coming in July. Under normal circumstances everybody would be buying 13s this time of year.

Just figured you could save and still get what you want.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Sorry y'all, I am just venting. I want(ordered) a 2014. Can't wait until Jeep wants to build a base Laredo. So I am forced to purchase overpriced and unwanted option packages. Just realized after viewing pics on autotrader that the powered drivers seat has no memory function.
