Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

For those that have asked the question, and are tired of wading through the self-flagellation about the CRD...

I contacted a local dealer that stated the Pacific Blue exterior will not be available until September. I cannot confirm or deny this, but it may help some make a decision that may be waiting to get a feel for that color.

I'm in a position to wait, but sounds like a lot of people won't wait and Jeep will lose some sales.

The other thing my dealer told me they heard at their Chrysler Production team meeting this morning (besides the ordering delay), is that the diesel will be a short run. Not sure what that means, but I will try to keep the emotions checked and wait patiently to get my CRD order in at the first opportunity.
My dealer and the dealer rep told me the same thing today. Basically, the short run means they will build a few CRD's they way they want and send them out. The dealer rep also stated that they hope to take orders a bit sooner than 5/4 but it wasn't for certain. He also added that the first run would be just consumer orders (orders tied to real names).

When I asked why the delay, he stated that they did not get the allocation of engines they were initially hoping for and that demand may be greater than originally expected, so they had to balance the two issues.

If that is the case when/if the CRD is available to order, I will go elsewhere. The premium on the CRD is just too high for me without the special pricing, and I do want a diesel.
I contacted the CA program people and specifically asked them the question if it applies to the CRD and the answer came back yes it does apply. That can of course change as we get into the launch and 'games' start to be played.

This is my next big fear, dealers will get cute and start to play games on the CRD pricing. Oh it's a low production run, look it's the hot new thing, we can charge an extra dealer markup, we won't take the affiliate pricing etc. In the end dealers can charge whatever they feel they can get for the product and Jeep has little to no say in it.

I agree with you vtail, I'm already over my price limit on the CRD and totally need the affiliate deal to stay in the game. Anything that changes that equation will force me to switch away from CRD. You should look into another dealer vtail. Your dealer may already be ahead in the game playing department.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I'm very close to just ordering the hemi. I don't want buyers remorse every time I drive it. I may have it when I fill up but that'll be once every couple weeks rather than dozens of times a week. The hemi is cheaper even with the upcharge for lux II by over $1100. That'll buy a lot of gas. I'll lease so I can decide if the gas expense is too high. And I'll be able to get it before my current car loses more value.

One thing to keep in mind on the CRD. Yes it may start out life as a niche low volume thing in the US but I have a feeling that Chrysler is pinning very high hopes on the success of the CRD as their big future engine across large segment of their line. We've already heard rumors of it in the future in Ram pickups, Jeep wrangler and even some talk about it in the new Cherokee someday. I have a gut feeling that Chrysler really really needs the CRD to take off and they are depending on GC to kind of set the table somewhat. A lot depends on how Americans accept diesels overall but it not a stretch to think 5 years down the road Chrysler could be selling a ton of CRDs.

They kinda have to go to in order to make CAFE requirements.

The SRT/Hemi will have to offset with diesel or electric (or both).

You head down to the dealer, and depending on the dealer, they give you a line about the CRD not being on the lot yet for one reason or another. But hey, while you are here, check out this V6.

Sure, it's not 30MPG, but, it's also a boatload less to buy and still comes with a pretty respectable MPG rating.

We can make you a hell of a deal if you are interested.

The CRD and the 30MPG thing is no more than a ploy, like when you look at a car ad and see a screaming deal on a car. If you look closely, it will have an * next to it.

That little * will say "Includes all incentives, rebates, customer cash allowances, not all of these may apply at time of purchase" or something otherwise irritating.

It's all a ploy to get you in the showroom. If they can get you there, they have a shot at getting you in a car (any car) and that much closer to closing the deal.

Sure... the $5,000 in rebates won't apply to you because you are not a Disabled Civil War Veteran in your 3rd year of college Biology class as a minority student driving a competitors car. But, they can work a deal with you (after 6 hours of annoying the crap out of you).

Seriously, this is nothing more than forcing you to sit at that car sales desk while the dealer goes back to "talk to his manager".

Only once enough of us get up to leave the car sales desk will they come through with an "offer". That means sales will have to fall off before they will be willing to deal.

I honestly, think that the first dealer I talked to, that said, "Oct of this year" is more and more spot on.

My only hope is that auto magazines and such catch wind of this bate and switch scheme and burn Jeep to the ground over it forcing them to act.
You must not have read my whole post...
