Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Just wondering why the Limited model would be offered with a diesel option in the U.S. but not in Canada? Canada loves diesels....I think they should offer the diesel option on every model...

I have previously owned the Jeep Grand Cherokee diesel in 2008, and the Mercedes M350 diesel in 2010...currently own a 2012 VW diesel wagon...

Usa Summit has 3.6 Stnd and Diesel is $5000 upgrade. Shouldn't the Canadian Summit upgrade from 5.7 be around $2500 not $5000. Time for me to look elsewhere. This is ridiculous.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

we Aussies are looking at about $77,000 on the road for an Overland Diesel and the Summit ( if it comes here ) will likely be north of $80K and our dollar is higher than the US$ ( i.e. over US $84K..)
But to compare a Range Rover Sport diesel starts at $110K on the road.
taxes, taxes, and even taxes on taxes is how we roll...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

And to add on that Rob, the VW Touareg in top spec diesel (just going off carsales.com) is approx $91,000 drive away - still a fair chunk more then the jeep.

I was looking at this too and hope it just needs some clarification... Please Milous?

All of the American models start with the 3.6L as base (other then the SRT), but the Summit and Overland Canadian models start with the 5.7L as the base, and you subtract $2,150 to get the 3.6L.

3.0L V6 TURBO DIESEL ENGINE (EXF) + 8-SPD AUTO 8HP70 TRANS (DFD) 22P (Late Availabilty) [MSRP $4,995 / INV. $ 4,346]
3.6L V6 VVT ENGINE (ERB) + 8-SPD AUTO 845RE TRANS (DFL) 23P [MSRP -$2,150 / INV. -$ 1,871]
5.7L V8 MDS VVT ENGINE (EZH) + 8-SPD AUTO 8HP70 TRANS (DFD) 27P (Standard)

Is the 3.0 Diesel (hopefully...) 'just' $4,995 over the 3.6L and $2,845 over the 5.7L?

The base prices for the different trim levels is ridiculously higher in Canada, but I understand they have different standard options and packages which would make them a chore to compare directly.... However, the SRT is the exact same price (apart from destination), which seems ludicrous when compared to the $7,500-$11k differences in other trim levels. Heck, the invoice price is more then $1500 LOWER for the SRT in Canada!

It just doesn't add up that the Diesel option would essentially be a $7,145 upgrade over the gas V6... Unless they desperately don't want to sell any in Canada.

I have no explanation on the pricing differences, I am just as baffled as everyone else. I find it more than hard to believe that a CRD Summit is $70k in Canada, ouch!!

Regarding the SRT, in the U.S. the "Lux Package" is Standard, in Canada it's a $3195 option. That brings the Canada price up 3k vs the U.S. But, the Harman system is $1995 in the U.S. and only $995 in Canada.

In Canada there is a wider margin between dealer invoice and MSRP vs the U.S. But, in Canada the holdback is much less - $700 for all models, which equals things out a bit. The U.S. holdback is 3% of MSRP (almost 2k on the SRT).

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Thanks for the quick reply Milous. I suppose on the bright side, I am not in a particular hurry. I feel for the people that are looking to buy ASAP though, this pricing seems like a mess. Is there a spot I can find 2013, 2012 or 2011 Canadian pricing to compare?

Good to know the dealer holdback is $700 in Canada. It's $700 from a base Jeep Compass to a loaded JGC? The % system used in the US makes a lot more sense, but good information none the less.

Cheers

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Somebody has to pay the Obamacare bill. Chrysler decided to have Canadians pay for their employees.

That makes as much sense as anything else I can think of.

I started to look at the VW but that is no better.
Then I looked at demo GCs and 2nd hand ones, not much better either, diesels are hiding their value.
I am planning on Ltd Diesel with Lux pack, hope it's not too much more than current.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I just logged on to VOTS this morning and FINALLY my information pulled up some info. Mine is now showing Production Scheduled. Did give me a VIN on there unless I just couldn't see it but at least it scheduled. Let the building process begin. Has anyone seen theres start the building process yet or are we all just scheduled at this point?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Does Production Scheduled mean it has a scheduled date to start building on the line? Will that date show in Milous's tracking system?
