I have never understood the need to separate the destination charge on vehicles. It's not like it varies depending distance from the factory. Just include it in the price like anything else you cannot order off the internet and have delivered to your home. The "document origination fee" and destination charges are the two most bogus charges involved in any purchase. Both things are a cost of doing business

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

There may be accounting/legal reasons for that, Hacksaw, but I agree it's kinda sad that these things need to be separated out on the sticker.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

If you don't take out the destination charge, your TV ads will show a higher price. Most people know it's coming, but perception is more important than reality.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Are dealers currently taking early orders from customers with all of the pricing vagaries?

Some are and some aren't. Contact a dealer to find out is the best way. The ordering banks are open.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Only MY13s at the Utah Auto Show last weekend. Jeep had a big display, including a large Camp Jeep. When I asked about MY14s, they took me aside and spoke in hushed tones, like it was some kind of secret. And they had no information. One girl took my email address and promised to send some information, but I never received anything.

None at the Houston show either

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Hello to All,

first time poster. First of all, many thanks for the effort and excellent information provided on this thread on the 2014's by several members.
Was ready to start the purchase process for a 2013 Summit until my internet searches came across the 2014 announcement.
Having read just about all the postings on the 2014's, (maybe missed some), a couple of questions :
Wheels :
don't care for the 20 inch wheels that come on the 2014 Summit..too blingy/busy...looking at the Jeep site for 2013s, 4 types of 20 inch wheels are offered ..for example a 20 in. polished alum with satin pockets on 2013 Laredo E or X Packaged with the Wheel/Nav group.
Any chance of getting different 20 in. wheels on the 2014 Summit,
besides what shown on the Summit pic ?

Off- road Pkg:
currently offered on the Summit 2013 as option (requires 18 in. wheels).
Don't see that as an option on 2014 Summit..will it be available ?

Purchase interval:
Don't require new 2014 Summit until mid/late June of this year. When is a good ballpark time frame to place order with dealer ? early March the latest ?

Dealer:
Any recommendation of a Jeep dealer in the greater Phoenix, Arizona metro area ? Bought a loaded 97 GC Ltd many years ago from Earnhart Chrysler-Jeep years ago, but looking for other options also.
Thanks.

If anyone attends the Chicago show, please post an update here! I will be in the Chicago area that week and am planning to attend on the 12th or 13th but I won't bother if they are not going to have '14's there.....

I think on twitter Ralph Gilles said the 14 SRT will be at Chicago
