The participating dealer gets additional discounts from the manufacturer to support folks who qualify for these special prices. Same goes for the Affiliate discounts. "We" get 1% off invoice/dealer gets 2% off invoice plus a small processing fee.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I'm getting a bit nervous with the news of the pushback of the CRD... makes me think they might have had some issues in testing... Marlon, Chevy, Milous -- can you chime in on this and on dates you may have heard??? Thanks guys.

I agree - it's making me wonder what the deal is and if I should just bail on it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Jeez fellas, I take a few hours off and now we're waiting until May to order the CRD!! Hope VM Motori in Italy isn't messing up this build, who knows, maybe Milous and the gang will know more...I see the "why get a diesel" question has popped up again, though, that's good for 20-30 posts.

Don't forget the discount you get with LuxII with the CRD at invoice....and my 03 Cummins will last another few months....and it's got 203K on it....yeah, them diesels last if ya take care of 'em....

Evidently, there are many valid reasons for ordering a diesel that more than compensate for the $4500 premium.

Thanks for the feedback.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Regarding colors:

My hobby is looking at new cars. I'm always amazed at the % of new cars in dealers lots that have light colored interiors - either cloth or leather. On a given dealer lot, there seem to be at least 4X as many light vs dark interiors.

I'm an all black (leather) guy or, in the case of the 14 JGC Summit, dark chocolate. The light interior colors bore me silly. I love light colored exteriors but those invariably sport light interiors. Usually, the only dark interiors you can get are on Black vehicles.

But, I gotta think I'm the exception. The dealers are carrying what most people want I would think. But I don't get it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Hah! If ya live in the south, where that sun beats down, them lighters colors inside and out do reflect a little of the heat, but no more white cars for me, I'm thinking a lighter blue this time, but still a tan interior!

Where are you located? That's odd, I always thought the opposite (most the interiors were darker). We stock mainly darker interiors here, and most of our colors are the 'safe' colors (black, silver, white, gray, and a salt and pepper of red/blue vehicles). Usually Dealers try to stock what they can easily sell in their area.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I had the opportunity on a hot, sunny day in Arizona, to compare a car with a black interior to an identical car with a light colored interior. The difference in seat temperature was considerable. Yet Arizona dealers stock lots of black interior cars. Go figure.

Haven't heard anything negative... I'm thinking it may have something to with the current HUGE backlog of non-CRD 2014 builds...

I think it may have more to do with production volume than anything "wrong" with the diesel.

We know that 2013 stock is getting low, and the initial issues with the production ramp up of the 2014's cost JNAP probably around 3 weeks of equivalent production. Add to that the estimated take rate of at most 15% for the CRD and they are probably just delaying the CRD to get more v6 and v8 models out the door and onto dealer lots. You do not want to go into spring with no product to sell...
