Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

If I'm not mistaken, I think the new Cherokee trailhawk is available in a pea soup green?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I wish I was talking about the Cherokee. I'd love to see it in person without the Camo.

I am new to this forum, but have been patiently waiting for the CRD since it was supposed to be released with the 2013s. I love the GC, keep my vehicles for many years, and think that diesel is the future. Gas is not going down in price over the long haul. If I keep this vehicle 10 years, which I likely will, I believe that I will be glad for purchasing the CRD. I just share everyone's impatience. Enough already, you have had a year to pair it with the new 8 speed, you have released the gas versions, open up for orders and be done with it.
Ditto...and Amen!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

1.) Marlon are you talking about that Fiat 500L thing? Ugh! If so, that's not what I was talking about.

2.) Not being able to afford a platform is something that's known before the car goes into pilot phase. This car (CRD) is a done deal. It's happening. And there is no retooling yet to be done for it. All they have to do is pass down the word, and we'll start crankin em out. It's that simple.

3.) "Build it and find out" is a terrible business plan. Even for Chrysler. Fortunately most of the gamblers are gone, and there's more strategy involved these days. I have what I believe to be some sound product ideas, but in the end, there's a reason why those at the top make what they make, and I make what I make. I'm not foolish enough to think I'm better at their job than they are, especially when I've never done it... Although I'd really like to meet the tool who took my GC Carhartt edition idea, and put it into the freakin CHRYSLER 200!!! ... Oh yes folks, it's coming. A Carhartt 200. Cause that car is fitting for the everyday workin man.

I believe you guys just rolled out some final phase CRD pilots, so still looking good for the Monday 5/13 launch.

Seems quite strange they haven't opened up ordering then...

Their development and engneering budgets have also been cut. Europe is not doing well and this has hurt Fiats financial situation. I am wondering if this is a factor in the release of the CRDs. Chevy's marketing idea makes sense. Howver, I am wondering if they just don't want to spend the money to retool for the CRDs right now.

This is about the cherokee, not the Grand Cherokee.
Chrysler messed up big on that thing. First a nasty looking front end and second rebirth of the Cherokee name which brings confusion between both models and has all the die hard old style cherokee folks all up at arms about Jeep molesting the heritage of their beloved rig. Hopefully that delay includes a new front end but that is doubtful.
I used to think that Chrysler and Jeep in particular was really on a roll but between that and the botched CRD launch in the US, I'm thinking the brand is on the skids again. Well done product and Marketing Teams!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Yeah, that thing.

Glad you weren't talking about it. I wanna know what the heck you saw though.

Either PM me or meet me after work at the gas station for a quick min. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I can't leave my area... JeeperJohn knows what I'm talking about...
