lol bet that's what he's hoping for, to see if he can break you down and buy one off the lot instead of ordering

Same here. I was set on the Overland until they decided to make the advanced tech package mandatory on the CRD. So now I'll just get the Limited CRD with LuxII, Tow package, RA4 radio, Engine block heater, and 20" rims. I did stop at my local dealer yesterday, and they heard that CRD orders will open Thursday as well. Hope so.. I also am going to opt out for the CD player. When people said it takes up too much room, they weren't kidding. I dont think there would even be enough room for my cell phone and wallet with the CD player in there.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Thought I'd throw out there my great news and my sad news....Took delivery of my 14 Granite Overland a week ago Monday. Couldn't be happier! On Tuesday it was hit in a parking lot (hit and run). Big hole in the front bumper. Luckily it was confined only to the front bumper. Surprisingly, the auto body shop ordered a new bumper and it is scheduled to arrive on the 9th. I thought that was pretty fast considering how new these are.

By the way, tinted the fronts to 35%. Looks awesome. Would love to find some black five spoke 20x9's.

Good luck to all of you that have ordered. It's definitely worth the wait. Jeep GC is the best American made vehicle on the market.

I couldn't get down there fast enough to look at it.

It's White with the deep Brown interior.

First off the interior is FREAKIN' GORGEOUS !!! The Brown is AWESOME. The suede pillars and headliner are color matching Brown and look incredible - way cool !!! The open grain wood gives the interior an amazing finish - the quality of the sound system was as good as I have heard ever in a car - the driver seat was very comfy - the steering wheel was thick and matched my big hands perfectly - lastly on the interior, the adjustments on the seat and steering wheel had an incredible range (most cars have a couple inches of movement in the telescope of the steering wheel - the Summit wheel came out at least 5 or 6 inches and up the same) I was very impressed sitting in this car.

Exterior - the White was beautiful !! It really showed off the unique Summit grill - the car was sitting next to a Black Overland and the grill diff was pronounced. The only thing I saw on the exterior that was news to me were the exhaust pipes - on the Summit, they are rectangular (not round) with one side on an angle - they looked like the VW Tuoareg exhausts - awesome !!!!

It was a beautiful car. I can't freakin' wait to get mine !!!
No Offense, but I thought one of the reasons you place a special order for your JGC was so nobody else sat in the car, screwed around with the seat settings and blasted the stereo system ?!?!

Safe to assume you did NOT take it for a Test Drive too ?!?!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

If I were on site and the dealer asked me to show my car to another customer I may or may not agree. But if I figured out that he did without obtaining informed consent, I would make a big deal. I did not order a car to be a customer test mule.

I will be ordering the Summit chrome honeycomb grill inserts for my white Limited. Dealer quoted only $75 for the chrome replacement inserts. They are also available in black honeycomb (Overland).

They should be prepping my vehicle for pick up if it has arrived. They should not be showing it to potential customers. It's not the idea of what you did or did not do in the car. It's the fact that I have been waiting for the release, waiting to order, and most importantly waiting for delivery of MY new GC and I should be the first person to SIT IN IT and TURN ON THE RADIO!!!!!! So, yea... Pretty much!

I think their point is that THAT guy ordered a car, just like you, and the first call the dealer made when it arrived should have been to him, not another customer (you).

You and the dealer may have a great relationship, but for the dealer NOT to get his consent (the other guy), before calling YOU to check HIS car out is disrespectful.

To each his own, but personally, I would've declined the offer UNLESS dude was there too, and INSISTED I check it out. But technically you didn't do anything wrong. That was just a bit tasteless on the part of your dealer.

What a bunch of Nancy's we have here today.

For the record, the car was one a good friend of mine asked the dealer to bring in from another dealership so he could look at it - my buddy is either going to take it or a Caddy the dealer has. His wife wants the Cadillac - he wants the Summit. If he doesn't take the JGC, I probably will.
