Take a look at your budget and maybe investing $35 for a membership to accessfund.org to get a friends and affiliate member # could get you into a limited trim. I live in El Paso, TX which is a very small market and while I have about 3-5 dealers to buy from none of them would negotiate any lower than 1% below invoice with the affiliated #. Which is bs because that 's the minimum is supposed to be and they get an additional 2% for them from Chrysler for every buyer that uses that program. So I shop outside of my market and eventually got advised to contact a dealer that got me between 5-6% below invoice. Yeah I have to travel to get it but it will be a mini vacation and a new vehicle for about $2k less than what I would have had to spend locally.

Maybe a savings like that could move you into the next trim level. Of course only you can make that call but is food for though. Either way hope everything turns out well.
We have had ours since April 1st so the ship has sailed on that... If we had more time I would have did that but we ordered less than a week after ordering banks opened. We needed the vehicle when we ordered it and didn't want to mess around with traveling, plus we had a trade no one wanted. I got 1 percent below invoice through my work which helped. When all is said and done we got around 2 percent below invoice. The only thing I really wanted was a backup camera and the 8.4" radio. Otherwise the jump up to a limited really wasn't necessary. I tried to get a few dealers around me to deal on a 2014 limited but no one would. I could have got a 13 overland for about 12 percent below invoice but my wife didn't want the 13.

How big of a "might" is this?

I had just decided yesterday that I would go w/ a Hemi - I was going to order today. Now this...I guess I'll watch and see the rest of the month.

If not, when I get back from vacation mid June, I'm going to just go buy a non-Chrysler product and never look back.

Milous, dealer is claiming CD player is not available for Summits. Can you confirm one way or the other? Thank you.

So I am a bit perplexed...

If they do start production on the CRD later this month, what would they build considering no one has been able to place an order?

Dealer stock so people can drive them and order possibly.

Stock builds for dealerships... most common/likely builds. They will sell like hotcakes off dealer lots. Our "special orders" will be later.

Thanks for the reply. I still don't understand why they would block me from ordering the AEX option on a Laredo E though. So, what your telling me is there isn't enough 18" tires, so they are going to put them on the more expensive models first, and not allow them on the Laredo?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

One theory about why V8 Hemi price increased $500, based on comments from several dealers: Chrysler (and all car makers) are under huge pressure to increase average fuel economy across their products. Selling V6 or even better Diesel engines helps this, while V8 hurts it. So Chrysler has this motive to make V8 less appealing.

Another theory is that V8 is bought by people who are less price sensitive (Summit and Overland buyers) so it's likely that if they want Hemi, they'll pay whatever the price is. So it's easy profit for Chrysler.

Both theories could be true.

Especially when combined with the theory of why Flipper glass was removed -- to save money per vehicle, because people who really want MY2014 will buy even without Flipper, so Chrysler makes more money per vehicle. Adding a bunch of new/better features is the classic time to take away things too. AND after MY2013 models are cleared from dealer lots and memories fade, Flipper can be added back as an extra-price option, and/or a model refresh for MY2015.

Chrysler undoubtedly has a detailed plan for how to refresh each model once or twice a year to keep sales rolling, and on a mature platform that means diddling with lesser aspects such as windows and colors.

Just theories...

The factory runs on just in time parts arrival. If a model uses that part as a standard build item they will restrict that model.... they may be getting enough supply to build another model that doesn't use that part as often or they will put that part on constraint and it will affect any build associated with that product. It is hard to tell from the information provided which is the case but I doubt it has to do with targeting an income level of buyer. Frankly they would love to sell more period not just more of one model over another.

Just my 2 cents.
