Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

For me, the sticker price, for the new GC Diesel I want, came in $1,300 less than my guesstimate, (assuming posted sticker prices don't change before delivery). But I currently have my 2nd diesel VW. I also had an excursion diesel and I have a Diesel Pusher RV. That is, I am used to paying a high premium for a diesel.

I am a fan of diesels; I go to watch the diesel Audis race at Sebring Raceway every March. ("GM/Fiat owned VM Motori" where's your LMP1?)

If diesels become more common place in the U.S., the price will come down.
I have heard, U.S. diesels pollute by the mile more than European diesels; however, European diesels pollute more by the gallon of Fuel burned. Regardless, if the diesels made all over the world complied with the same emissions standards the price should fall in the U.S. as well.
($45,495.00+$995.00+$4,500.00+$1,695.00+$95.00+$99 5.00)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Milous,

Any word on the availability of the Lux package on the Limited 3.6 or v8? How about the possible price change or invoice pricing?

Sorry if this keeps getting repeated..

From a profitability standpoint, they have obviously demonstrated that they can sell the hemi and the CRD at the same price point, and that is in markets where the fuel cost difference is considerable more favorable to diesel.

I did a payback calc at current fuel prices and CRD vs hemi is 3.6 years (at 12k/yr) and versus the pentastar (yes, not a fair comparison), the payback is over 36 years to recoup that $4500 at current fuel costs.

One would think that Chrysler's goal is to get as many of these on the market as possible to help hit their CAFE targets while still making a profit. They have already been producing the CRD for export at JNAP for over 2 years, so any increase in volume should help finish amortizing the engine development costs.

In the US, we can reasonable expect a slight upcharge over the hemi to cover the urea injection we have to have, but otherwise I think they need to be mindful of chasing maximum profit under the "eco diesel" feel good branding strategy.

They need to get the price differential down or add in some content with the CRD option in order to create a credible value proposition in the US market. Do that and they will have a true made in the USA competitor for the Germans in the diesel market and take a huge chunk out of Toureg sales. That would be your Volkswagen Conquest right there, Mr. Marchionne.
I'm confused about the uproar over a $4500 charge for the diesel. Is this because the posters are not familiar with the cost of diesel engines in other cars/trucks? For example, Chevy charges over $6k for a diesel in its trucks and Ford charges over $8K. Maybe its just me, but it looks like Jeep is actually charging a lot less than Ford or Chevy for a customer to put a diesel in the GC.

And of all the users on here his truck was the first to go into pre-release! How ironic.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Talked with my dealer, they are willing to order in an Overland for me and let me back out if the pricing is to much after it's all said and done. They said there is no allocation to the dealers, and no MSRP or Invoice pricing available but they can input and order for manufacturing. Sound right?

I'm pretty much in the same boat as SnoFire, regarding the options on the Limited vs. Price of the Overland.

I mentioned that Pat@Fieldsauto would give 2% less than invoice with the Tread Lightly deal, and asked if they would match it. I didn't get a very nice response, and they didn't really believe me, said they are contacting Jeep to find out "how he does it and if it's true." I mentioned that I'm pretty sure Pat could even ship the car to me if I was willing to pay for it, if they "couldn't" get me the discount. They were even less thrilled with that. Hope I didn't get Pat in trouble.....my dealer was a little upset. I think it's funny when a dealer wants to act like Invoice price is what their cost is.
