Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

It's nice to know I'm not the only one who obsesses about cars. This is my first "official" posting after lurking for months.

We've been UK based for the past 2.5 years but are relocating back to the US in 8 weeks. We spend our weekends (plus) in upstate NY so need something with road manners that can still make it up my mudslide of a driveway! I have a 2009 FX35 that's ready to be traded in.

So finally, after months of researching, obsessing, lurking, etc. I am finally there that a 2014 Overland V6 (with ORAII and Advanced Tech) is our next car. I really want QDII but can't justify the lead-time or the expense of the diesel and just don't want to keep feeding the Hemi (we do more than 300 miles a week between the city and the country round-trip).

Second place was the X3 but the updates to the 2014 GC won, I'm a gadget guy and I'm fascinated by the new EVIC. That and the call I got from the guy that watches our house that he needed to be towed out of our driveway after the ground thawed and his car sunk made me think I need a car with some capability.

So now it's a matter of deciding if I pull the trigger from here so it's waiting for us when we get back or if I should do the smart thing and actually drive one and see the colors in person before buying (granite/black is in the lead so far). I imagine they will be on dealer lots by the beginning of April.

We get the affiliate program through work so I don't even get to make my spreadsheet with offers from every dealer in a 200 mile radius (or maybe I still get to do that, presumably the value of my trade-in will vary). Has anyone had good dealer experiences in the Hudson Valley to Albany area?

Thanks for all of the info and entertainment...checking out the forum is now the first thing I do when I get up (obsessive).

I'm a gadget guy as well and reading what you wrote seems like we both think alike. I'm actually looking to purchase overland in the same configuration as you. Let me know if you found a descent dealership in the NYC metro area. Maybe if we would be able find enough people we can negotiate a better price. There is a thread on this forum for people in Denver area and they were able to negotiate $1750 under invoice with affiliated pricing discount (so more than 1%).

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Anyone find a good dealer in Western PA? So far I have contacted 5 dealers in the north of Pittsburgh area and none are making me happy yet. Most of them wont even talk about it until the CRD shows up in the system for order.

I'm a longtime viewer of this forum and now a first time poster. This was in my dealer email this morning. Thought I would post it as it has some timing on some options that people were talking about. I don't think I saw this info posted yet.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Your right, I don't like this as it makes no sense to me on it. So now I would be almost looking at May/June before it would show up to my door..ugh!

Hopefully Milous can shed some light on this today... Ordering for it opens tomorrow but yet won't go into production for 2 months??

Nothing they do makes sense really. Good thing you have a back up Jeep that will be built and paid down to the AHN amount by the time it arrived!

Since it is priced differently with the crd, hopefully it is only showing a delay with the crd.

That would be the hope at this point.. Nothing else I can do but wait unless I go buy a '13
