Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Unfortunately with the CRD Overland they force you to order Advanced Tech package.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Almost home....



The driver was still sitting in the cab and I'm sure he was wondering wtf I was doing. This was in the parking lot of a hotel that is right next to the dealership.

Coming from a jeep without it and watching what dealers are asking for Overlands with it there's quite a price difference in Overlands with and without the tech group. I'm wondering even if I buy one off the lot off the later build dates will mean a better product since theyre utilizing owners early issues and dealer fixes to remind the line as to what to focus on during the builds.

The driver was probably muttering, "Oh great, another one of those Jeep Garage nut jobs."

Did you ever work on an assembly line in heavy industry? It doesn't work quite that way. The guys on the line do things according to a pretty rigid plan. Engineering changes come along and change that plan. There's not a lot of "reminding people what to focus on". But having said that, I'm sure later builds will incorporate engineering changes that will hopefully eliminate early build problems. It seems to me that the most prevalent problems, aside from a few cosmetic boogers, have to do with some poorly written software that wasn't fully tested before implementation. Those things can be rectified with updates flashed to the vehicles at the dealer. Hopefully those issues are being worked on. I don't know how things are done at JNAP, but many manufacturers outsource that kind of work overseas, so there could be some delay in those fixes.

Its my belief that the men and women who work the lines do an Incredible job but with a new model there will be issues and those issues will be discovered as the line sends out vehicles
And gets input back the dealers and the buyers and it's an ongoing process of learning by all involved.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I definitely agree with what you say about the folks on the line. What I was trying to get across was the mechanisms used to create those changes in the manufacturing process that improve the product.
