Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Aside from the 2014 configurator, is there an active topic here about the %$&^%^&#%&&^# inventory search on the Jeep website. Letting it be THAT screwed up for THAT long doesn't say much about Jeep's attention to quality or customer satisfaction. Why are we not raising H*** about it?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

In a couple of months, we'll want it to work for the 2014 units and it will STILL be garbage.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Cars.com, autotrader, etc. why bother with that thing on the jeep website anyway?

What's wrong with the search? I fool around with it every day and haven't encountered any problem.

As for configuring a 2014, until it shows up at the link below, you won't see the info. I don't think they want that up and running yet, but a programmer tested the link and forgot to take it out.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

My problem with it is likely caused by trying to look at a greater distance. At 200 miles and a large number of results, it is a WRECK. Actually, it will change distances by itself and often revert back to one of it's own choice. Cars.com shows every single one as a V8 and only lists some at that.

I guess there is no way for me to do a complete search at this point without doing a LARGE number of local searches.

I have had better luck using the autotrader.com search.

I think each of us Aussies have heard all sorts off various "info" from local dealers but noting much lines up with the info here unfortunately
As I understand it, the info posted is specific to the USA and a second section specific to Canada. With the large differences between these closely related markets, I would take the info in very general terms unless Milous can get information specific to your location.

The Diesel is available in the US for $4500 over the gasoline V6 and available on the Limited and higher trim. In Canada it's more then $7k over the V6 (they call it a $5k option, but use the 5.7L as the base motor, a $2k+ option itself). Plus you can't get it in any trim lower then Overland... yet the SRTs are the same price.

I was told when I called my dealer that Canada isn't getting the 2014 JGC until June. If that's the build date, it looks like Canada and Australia are getting the 2014s at the same time.

When you do detailed searches across many miles, there are problems most of the time. A lot of times the first list of findings will lock up. When search parameters are changed, they will sometimes erase prior changes of previous lines for no reason. There is also no way to eliminate close matches and concentrate on nothing but exact matches when a specific color, motor, drive and trim is specified!!! Milous & Chevy, put a bug in the programmers ears to fix this problem that has spanned several years. Thanks!!!!

Cars.com and autotrader are useless as they only show cars the dealers pay to advertise and way less filters than jeep.com!!!

I don't believe that's correct. US and Canadian models are coming off the line at the same time (they are built to the same specs), and several Canadian orders for 2014's are already in Pre-release, including my own, a Summit.

Nothing is perfect but I suggest you try the advanced search feature on autotrader.

The biggest headache is they don't list the trim level and if the listing does not specify the motor, you get a lot of useless results. Garbage in, garbage out.

And I am sure the dealers subsidize the jeep site too, nothing is free.

Do what you want, I got no skin in the game, just suggesting what I found more useful.

Autotrader is good for generalized searches but when looking for Summits, No Go. The Jeep.com site does give that option and they put all the suvs on themselves without dealer intervention.
