Just wondering if the "Tow Group" is an enhancement to what might be already standard or if it's necessary to avoid an aftermarket tow hitch later on. Thanks!
The Overland already comes with Towing.

Thanks Sno! I am not sure what I added then, because it was a $708 option. I will call the dealer tomorrow and have them remove it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

The only $708 option I see is QuadraDrive. It makes no sense since you said a 4x2 and QuadrDrive is a 4 wheel drive system. Plus, it is only available with a V8.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

OK - you probably want that. I think it's standard on the 4x4 Overland and that's what's listed in post 1 of this thread.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Kevin, I believe that the towing package is optional for a 4x2 configured GC...but yes you want it if you plan on towing as it's not just the hitch, but also some other upgrades that provide better performance under towing conditions as noted in the list of "stuff" you posted.

Checked with dealer yesterday on the 2014 rates vs 2013:
Limited
15K 54% 36mo
15K 52% 39mo

Overland
15K 49% 36mo (crazy)
15K 47% 39mo

Laredo E
15K 57% 36mo
15K 55% 39mo

interest rate 1.45% for 2014 2.05% on the 2013s

He expected a change when the month rolls over as he thought the 2014s were low - 2013s are the same residuals. Also, Chryco may switch preferred leasing from Ally as of March 1st.

This is a repost from silvermax04 from a different thread, but this is what granite looks like....officially! It was a little scary to order a car in a color I've never seen before, but now I believe I made a good decision.

Thats actually a pretty nice color. I bet it looks even better in person. If I didn't order black I would get this one

The granite looks great! Nice shade, not too dark, not too light. I would love to see some pics of bonbong's interior to show us the interior trim pieces without flash and the glare everyone gets when they take pics at the car shows.
