BTW, in my opinion, any dealer currently taking money on CRD orders is a scam dealership. No dealership can currently place an order. So why are they taking your money? In my area 2 dealerships will not take money down on these and 1 tries to trick you into it. It took much effort to find out they are just keeping your money and will order exactly on the same day ordering opens for all dealerships.

I am first in line at my dealership without placing any money down. I think they are scamming you by making sure you use them only. You did'nt really order a JGC until they actually place the order. No one in the U.S. can order a CRD right now. There is much to negotiate aside from price, and a deposit eliminates the competition.

It is currently top of the line in that platform. There is currently no super Jeep luxury brand for JGC to be the poor cousin to. Toyota has Lexus. Nissan has Infinity. Jeep stands alone. I stand by my statement. Is there another JGC platform vehicle, or a Jeep vehicle period, that is premium to the JGC? While I am waiting for CRD, I don't think that anyone would argue that the JGC SRT is the most premium truck that Jeep makes.

If Maserati is going to be produced on the same platform as the JGC, in the long run that is not good for JGC fans. If they are going to do it, better that they are made and stay in Europe.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Maserati is so far a step above Lexus, Infinity, BMW and even Mercedes that I don't think it will matter to Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Picked up my Summit today. I freakin' love it. Incredibly quiet. Hands down the best sound system I've ever heard in a car. Also, the 8 speed transmission is so smooth the only way I can tell it shifted is to watch the RPM's.

The lift gate alignment has been corrected. Both sides are the same.

If it keeps this up, I'm going to be one happy cowboy !!!

My dealer told me he got a call from Jeep today saying ALL Jeep orders were halted as of today until some time in July. Don't know if that is true or not.

I couldnt pass it p and will pick it up Monday.
Well, I hate my new truck. It doesn't have enough head room, i cant get comfortable and I plain 'ol miss my Jeep.

I am glad I still have my '14 Summit on order, as i think I will trade for it as soon as it comes in. I am sure I will loose my shirt on the truck but I just cant get comfortable in it, no matter what i try. I have even talked to somebody about lowering the seats. But I think it is too much. I am going to talk to my dealer tomorrow and see what he says.

Keep in mind he has vested interest in you switching to gas ones he has on lot now. Late June is latest update we have from Milous, others have posted Q3 but early Q3 isn't far off of late June. Hang in there a few more weeks and maybe we'll know more soon.

It does seem Jeep is trying to position the SRT as just that--the luxury brand. They've broken it off from the rest of the JGC lineage by changing it fron the JGC SRT8 to just plain "SRT..."

They've also done a similar thing with the "Summit"- breaking away from "Overland Summit". I would say that's more Luxury than the SRT.

You see the same thing with Dodge and "RAM".

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

It seems to me SRT is the performance badge. The SRT doesn't have the same functionality as the Overland and Summit. Summit would be luxury, and Overland is the luxury utility badge. I think most Summits will end up as Mall crawlers. My Overland is great off-road, but lux enough for an old fart like me.

That's correct.. The SRT isn't the top lux trim. The Summit is. The SRT costs more, but the reason has nothing to do with "luxury."
