Here is what I asked for that would make me happy:



I would like to order the following next Tuesday, May 7th, when ordering opens up:

Ordering Info:
2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit 4x4
3.0L Diesel
Exterior - Granite (Gray)
Interior - Brown

Dealer Options Installed
Wheel Locks (Part # 82212564)
Front Tow Hooks (Part # 82212095)
Integrated Trailer Brake Module (Part # 82213173)
Roof Rails (Rack) (Part # 82212072AC)
Cargo Area Tray (Part # 82212085)
Rubber Slush Mats (Part # 82213686)
Front Window Tint

Others
Mopar Vehicle Protection Plan - Maximum Care Coverage
Free 2 Year Maintenance

I am looking to get the vehicle for 2% below invoice, with all Dealer options installed at no charge, 2 years free maintenance.

Additionally, I would also like a Chrysler/Mopar Maximum Care (lifetime) extended warrant for $2000.




A few observations:

1. Barley half even responded to me within 24 hours, including the two closest to me
2. Two dealers said due to limited allocations the best price they could do was very close to MSRP
3. A few got to 1% below, but wanted to charge me full price for accessories and $3000 for warranty, and half off maintenance
4. Of course the dealership I have bought my last 4 Jeeps from said sure, we can do that, without batting an eye (I have been buggin him to order me one for several months and they are the #2 Jeep Dealer in the country)

Still going to press the other dealers to see what they will do but not expecting much.
I'd save your money on the wheel locks and buy some Gorilla locking lug nuts. I just put some on and they look 1000x better than the giant Mopar lock.

Alternative wheel locks.

Amazon just hasn't updated everything. They fit, I have them on my 14 now. I would never trust Amazon on whether or not something fits a vehicle. My Magnaflow exhaust isn't supposed to fit either.

I'm not too sure the difference between 2 and 5% is nickel and diming on a 40K purchase! But what the heck, I'm retired and my time and effort are free these days and I'm buying for want instead of need. I've still got time for research and emails....and driving to Colorado for $1750 off is just a vacation...

No way . They can change dates at the drop of a hat. May 7th is set in stone for order banks to re-open, but no way to know 100% if CRD will reamain set for the 7th.

Maybe the sepia interior will also open up next Tuesday since nothing happened today. Another date blown and no update from anyone. Very discouraging.

Yes, very frustrating, I don't understand why dates/delays cannot be communicated better from Chrysler. Very challenging to get information.

Thanks for the update. Anything that we can do to help, such as a word of encouragement, friendly note, or greeting card to the right person? I know that I will at least be crossing my fingers.

Milous, I don't suppose you have any insider info on the JGC TrailHawk II features yet? (the tire size, opened up wheel wells and various SRT bits)

Thanks

I have a good feeling that May 7th will hold up for CRD ordering. Think positive thoughts

We're certainly getting close! Is 5 days away from a current date the record so far? Haha... Thinking positive... Though I'm not really sure if the May 7th date is for Canadian orders as well?

I am getting anxious, but more so for the reviews . The late Blu-ray availability will keep me on the sidelines and that TrailHawk has me interested... But unsure. Milous' timeline says 'Fall 2013' and based on the weather I figured it was already here, lol... 3 days of 'warm'... Then summers over... Blizzard.

I am particularly interested in actual fuel economy numbers (who knows, maybe trying to get get closer to their 30mpg number is part of the delay?). The environmental requirements in the North American market unfortunately make the European numbers largely irrelevant. Check out how in 4 years the fuel economy of a VW Golf got consistently worse, all due to meeting the government standards on what goes out the tailpipe.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I'm thinking the delay was purely so that they could produce for offshore sales. They know the CRD sells like hotcakes for the Aussies and in the EU. My guess is that they bumped back North America sales to focus on getting CRD's out the door for the known markets. NA is still a relatively unknown market for diesels in SUVs, especially for Jeep. It makes the best sense to build them for where you know you will move em first, and then setup a run for new markets.

My hope is that CRD opens on May 7th, else I'll have to start taking the other models I've looked at a bit more seriously.
