We must have taken the same course.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

They've produced the best car. You can't expect it to be the cheapest in the market any longer. When you excel yourself in your employment you would like to be rewarded. That's how life normally works. On the other hand, they could just sell them below market acceptance and go broke again....then what quality of car are they going to make? Now, if you feel you are paying too much come over to Australia and see what we are paying for your cars. You'd be really crying then.

This whole thing about wanting it to be the cheapest car is funny. As a country we want to make products that rival the worlds best, we want to get paid as much as possible, but them we complain that our products are too expensive.... Quality costs money, if you want a cheap car buy a Kia if you want a great car buy a jeep gc but dont expect to pay as much for a jeep as you would a kia....No one is telling you to buy a 50k suv there are alot of options out there espescially cheaper ones....I am willing to pay for a well made American made product without complaining because if those people at the plants, engineers to assembly line workers have good paying jobs they spend money in this country also, and some of that money trickles back to all of us in some way....Maybe its time we showed the world that we were and once again can be a manufacturing superpower...

Not best but possibly prettiest. They're nearly all living over here so Oz can't be too bad either.

Thanks guys, I really think we would be in alot better shape as a country if we transformed at least half of the warehouses that have been built to store oberseas products we buy in the past 10+ years into factories that make the profucts we buy but to do that we need to buy our own products and not rely on the rest of the world to buy them...coming from a blue collar family its important to me, we didnt get to where we were by importing everything...Ive owned all dufferent types of cars, and I just decided that Ive supported enough people in Germany and Japan already and would rather buy a 65k jeep thats built in Detroit than a 65k foreign car made somewhere else, it applies to alot of products other than cars, and Ill admit Im not perfect, we all buy alot of foreign made goods, but I am trying to make an effort to change that at least in my household...Hopefully everyone understands where Im coming from, not trying to preach, or tell anyone what to buy, just explaining to the guy complaining about the 4k increase why I dont mind paying it...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If you're talking about me, I'm not complaining about the price increase, just pointing it out. I am complaining about the optional CD player and location of it and the loss of the flipper glass though! That's fine, I've got my 2012.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

White,

I agree with your premise, but it ain't easy. I'll be trading my only foreign car, an MDX, to buy my Jeep. But my MDX has almost as many American made parts as the Jeep. I think the Jeep window sticker says 68%. I think I read that the Jeep has a Mexican built Hemi engine and a German built ZF tranny. The MDX has a Japanese tranny, but a US built motor. Acura either already has, or is about to move their assembly to the US ... From Canada.

What I do like about the Jeep is that it is keeping "Made in Detroit" alive. But it is reported that the car with the most U S made parts is a Toyota. It makes me want to scream that one of the 'big three" doesn't hold that distinction.

I have a few complaints about the 2014 GC, but price is not one of them.
