I'm not meaning to imply it does. I don't pirate and I don't advocate others' doing it, either. Just saying that it's very ticky-tack to charge so much to unlock a feature that's already there...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information

Wow, $4500 premium on the diesel or double the hemi. Forget it, might as well not bother trying to sell that in the states; no one is going to buy one. Unless there is a higher base spec level hiding in there and it hasn't been sorted out, I'm definitely out.

Major buzz kill!!

In all serious I guess it's not fair for me to judge, since I haven't actually knowingly seen the color in person.

It even looks like crap on a minivan, that's how bad it is. Horrid!

The fact that it's there doesn't mean the developer has broken even yet. Say it cost a million dollars to develop the software. They set the price based on anticipating a certain number of sales. Before they make a profit, that million dollars has to be recouped. Just because its there, it doesn't mean it was paid for.

iTunes doesn't have to create anything beyond the original to sell millions of songs, but they still expect to get paid for every download.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information

I really have no idea what is going on with the US pricing on the Diesel, it’s insane.
You guys aren’t inherently keen on diesels anyway (as Australia was too 5+ years ago) and this is no way to change things.
I just checked again, and for Australia, based on official Drive Away pricing from the dealer, the diesel is actually $680 less that the V8.

Now we already getting raped with taxes (we have this brilliant LUXURY car tax - calculated as 33% of the GST exclusive portion of the vehicle purchase price over $59,133) and I am sure there are duties/taxes based on the vehicles engine type and size. So it makes it harder to compare fully US to Aus.
That said, I still can’t see how it can be so massively different that we pay slightly less for our CRD vs V8 and you pay way more.
Diesels are now king by a long way here on all real SUVs, after a long time catching up to Europe sales split.

Diesel fuel also costs more than petrol here, but for our GCs, the CRD has a much higher towing capacity (due to brake and suspension spec upgrades) that the petrol V6.
So for anyone towing a decent load, it is a no brainer, diesel all the way. But if we had that price difference too, it would have to be the V8.
I know the Pentastar requires premium fuel, not sure about the V8.
