The problem is that nobody wants them any more so it needed to be in a place that didn't require any other changes in the vehicle. This was an easy spot for manufacturing purposes and the pricing is pushing people not to bother so they can dump it all together.

For the price you can buy any number of portable plug in devices.

Looks like about a 75% profit item from the few who will buy it.

The trans-Atlantic relationship between automakers Chrysler and Fiat might be coming apart now that Chrysler has filed for an initial public offering.

The IPO offers some deep insight into the turnaround at the U.S. company that has made significant gains since emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy four years ago, but which still has a number of serious challenges to deal with as it continues to merge its operations with those of Italian-based Fiat SpA.
Among other things, the filing reveals some of the plans in the works for new vehicles aimed at filling the numerous gaps in the Chrysler line-up, including a “first ever” small crossover-utility vehicle now under development.

Here are some pics I took of the rear DVD system in a grand Cherokee :-) Looks rather good and the fit and finish is very nice!

In the centre console is infact a DVD/Bluray/CD player, the unit looks identical to cd only unit..

Pic was taken in Germany, actually it's available to order now, in Europe anyway..

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Thank you for the post. My SRT has been on hold pending the rear DVD. Hopefully, this means they have started with the build, however, I'm yet to receive a # from the dealer

No problem.. It's worth the wait, in the flesh it looks very neat, slick and good quality. :-)

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Sorry to derail the Great DVD Dilemma, but I'm new to the forum and about to make my first Jeep purchase after doing a lot of research.

Here are the desired specs:

2014 JGC Limited 4x4 V8
Black / Black
Lux Package II

I live in Austin and have contacted 10-15 dealers in Texas in the past few months. Initially, I heard back from 5 and they all sent nearly the exact same pricing, $45K sticker - $1500.

Once I let them know invoice for this model with upgrades is actually closer to $41K, some disappeared and others went into bunker mode.

My OTD price is $40K, which is 3-4% off invoice. Given the huge demand down here I don't think I'll get any better than that but would love some feedback from people that have purchased the same car or similar configuration and any negotiation tactics.

Thanks in advance.

Shankly
