Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

The one thing I don't like bout the Overlnd is the wood on the top portion of the steering wheel. It looks silly in a Jeep at any level. I almost opted for a Limited with Lux just to avoid the wood on the wheel. And I wonder how it 's going to look with the wood trim. It would be nice to swap it out some day.

With the options I did want, the price difference was less than 5%. Since I will probably keep it for 3 years (maybe more) it didn't seem too bad.

If I was younger with kids at home I might be diverting that extra money to something more important than a leather dash. One size does not fit all.

I agree - I don't like it on my 2011 Overland. I tried to switch but didn't get too far with the dealer.

Perhaps you've just gotten used to those fabulous Corvette interiors!

I'd take the interior of a Challenger anyday over a Vette! It's not real fancy but it isn't as mundane like the Vette.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

In the video of the Overland a couple pages back, does it seem like it has headlight washers. It looks like you can see the part that pops out to wash the lamps.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Has anyone in the Dallas, TX area gotten any pricing from local dealers? I went to one last night and they said the best they would do is $100 over invoice. I asked if they honored the affiliate program pricing and they said they do so it would be invoice less 1 percent.

Naa...this option is just a special badge that has random head-shots of Chevy, Milous and the other nice Jeep folks so they're always putting on a "special appearance" on your Jeep.

Actually, my Vette is a 67 and that interior was pretty state of the art for the period. Can't say the same for the 80's and newer, although it looks like they might be correcting that with the new '14, even though it looks like a camaro. :-) The Overland definitely has a nicer interior, but i just don't get the wood on 1/4 of a steering wheel?

Didn't have much luck in Dallas so found a good dealer in Houston who was willing to work with me.

Just like the chrome towhooks Jeep ran out of ideas on how to pimp out the GC.
