We ended up with an Expedition(which was a mistake) and I just wanted to drive the SRT for the heck of it. Anyways, he left such a positive impression that, 1. unlike most salesmen he had been working there for longer than a week. 2. He actually knew information about the vehicles he was selling, which is a rarity these days. 3. He let me test drive what I wanted to and didn't give me any kind of run around. So I went back to him 4 years later in 2010 and said "you probably don't remember me but 4 years ago you let me test drive a jeep. I'm ready to buy one now." He also let me test drive a 2012 SRT GC which was another plus.
Great to find a salesman like that. I went through the same crap and I thought the salesman's I bought from would be the same. He didn't know much about the refresh, but by the time my order came in, he knew all the features on the car better than anyone at the dealer, so he does his homework. I would think, with all the information online, these guys who are serious about the job can easily read up on what they are selling and make the experience that much better which would help attract more business.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Internet manager from my dealer here in NJ just emailed me and said come on in and order the CRD today! Hopefully he knows something and this is not a false alarm. I will try to sneak over on long lunch, if not after work on my way home.

You do that and I'll do the drum-roll.....I'm not coordinated enough to do both


I'm on the edge of my seat 'cause my quote (through ENCS) is CRD without LUX II. It's "awaiting acceptance" and I'm hoping it goes through like that. I didn't bring up the possibility that their system could be wrong, because I plan on complaining (and doing some bluffing) for a steap discount due to their error...wish me luck.

Or, does anyone here have news of the LUX II becoming non-mandatory?

IIRC, there have been many tweaks to the ordering system as things are able to be ordered. For example, you couldn't order Lux II with a Limited for a stretch. Now you can. I wouldn't be surprised if the Lux II/CRD order requirement got removed. It seems odd that they would give a price break for Lux II with CRD otherwise.

I thought so. I am prepered for the worst because it means my Jeep will have more cool stuff (and I'm cool with the price...just gonna call them out 'cause it is pretty crappy for them to mis-quote like that. Someone unpreparred would hear: "Good news, we can order your CRD now, BUT......sorry, we mis-quoted you. It's gonna be another 2 grand for this required option")

Still hoping the price break for Lux II w/CRD still holds. That's what I'm planning to order.

Limited CRD
NHK
AHN
ADG
AHX
RA4

Feel like I'm waiting to buy concert tickets.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

So, yay or nay on the CRD ordering? I'd call but I'm going through the DC group buy and don't want to pester the dealership. Gotta make sure they don't pull the plug on the deal!
