I was wondering the same thing. Hopefully if someone higher up is looking at the forums they will see the incredible value they provide for the Jeep brand. I bet many Jeeps have been sold based on the information found on here.

Maybe they are all busy working on the '14s and it is nothing more than that.

That wouldn't stop things from moving along. Milous did say that they hadn't built any cars for retail.

I think you maybe are onto something here. The dealer I prefer to buy from knew what I wanted and had a good price quote to me the day pricing went up. He confirmed with me today his boss (the owner) has no idea why pricing has been taken down in their system. Just for due diligence, I had contacted a half dozen other dealers ... most of them are clueless how I know so much and have such a good price already. It has been rather amusing.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I think it has more to do with this forum attracting a lot of new members (myself included), who took interest in the GC and stumbled on this great source of information. I'm sure Milous information was posted with the full knowledge of the marketing group, rather the higher ups may not have expected the info to permeate the public realm quite so thoroughly. Didn't someone speculate Milous stood for media information liaison officer u s?

no destination is $995. I have always found it amusing to how Chrysler uses xx95 or xx05 to make it seem cheaper than what it really is. Of course I know its all marketing and much more pleasing to the eye.

I contacted a dealer and mentioned affiliate pricing. As soon as prices showed up, he contacted me back and gave me exactly what was listed in the first post for invoice prices.

If dealers are trying to up those prices and screw people, the higher ups should be coming down on those dealers. You want a bad name for your product, have a shady salesmen sell it.

The only "off road" I do is crossing the lawn to get to both my utility and horse trailers and occasionally parking in a more muddy area at the barn during a horse show. Oh, and it's great capability in inclement weather. It's as comfortable as any near-luxury car I've owned with the brawn to do real work when I ask it to. But who knows...maybe I'll do an easy trail or beach ride while on vacation...
