Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

If your on the Jeep site, you need to make sure it says 2014 as it will still go to the 2013 build/price.

You can't. You are just dealing with a glitch in the website.

All 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokees have the new grille, new front end, new headlights, new tailgate, new liftgate, no flipper glass, no hard drive. It's not possible to get the 2011/2012/2013 style with an 8 speed. There are still lots of 2013s on lots though, but V6 has 5 speed, and V8 has 6 speed.

Go check one out in person, you'll change your mind. NOTHING else out there in the price range can compete with the features the new Jeep has.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

The new Cherokee is an abomination. Now it seems it could hurt the Grand Cherokee just by using the name Cherokee.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Does the Cherokee have a flipper glass?

Marlon, Chevyboy_711, anyone HELP a guy out and tell the inspection guys to push mine through today. PRETTY PLEASE......
I'm going to let you guys in on a little secret.. When your Jeep gets hung up in "inspection" it really means there's something that's wrong with it, that is scheduled for repair. This could be something as small as a misaligned door, or something as extensive as a short in the wiring causing electronics problems. I've seen fully assembled cars gutted on the final line to replace a wiring harness, as well as complete cars that have to be scrapped bc of a non repairable issue.

However, you should know there's no direct correlation between the duration of the "inspection" (repair) time and the extent of the necessary repairs. So just bc a car may sit in wait for a month doesn't mean it's needs extensive work, it could just mean there's quite a few more ahead of it that the repair men are working/behind on.

As I've said before, the processes have changed quite a bit, and much of what USED to get a "It's good.. Ship it!", now gets an "Awww hell naw, we gotta fix that!" Obviously more focus on quality today will cut down on more expensive warranty claims tomorrow. Which leads to happier consumers.

FYI: This happened to me last year when I bought mine.. Truck was held up for about 3 weeks bc of a blemish in the paint on the tailgate and some other minor crap. I didn't care, but had I seen these things afterward, I'd prolly been pissed and drove the thing through the front door of the plant!.. So yea.. Wait now, and truly enjoy it when you get it!
