So is that a good idea for those of us (myself included) who have tried to reach a deal with local dealers, but they won't come close to Pat's offer? In other words, I'm afraid if I were to buy from an out-of-state dealer and have the vehicle shipped to one locally who failed to earn my business that they would charge all kinds of "handling" and "prep" fees just to let me pick it up.

Yea I am in the same boat... I have been comparing the new GC vs X5 vs LR4 and was considering the Wrangler Unlimited, but wrote that off as the wife hated it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I have emailed about 20 dealers around me and about 5 of them have beaten Pat's 2%.

I'm trying to get the folks at Rairdon to give me a decent deal. I'm going to comparison shop them with Dave Smith, who does great deals. I'd like to have a local dealership to work with for warranty work (loaners) and to save the trip. I'll let you know how it shakes out.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I just started talking to Rairdon myself.

They seemed pretty clueless...

Tried to sell me a 13, and then tried to tell me the CRD would be $8k-$9k more then the V6, and I would not be able to pick up until late August.



I was not impressed.

There's a few of us Pacific Northwesters looking for dealers...

Let me kknow how Dave Smith goes. If we can get stuff delivered for us, that maybe the best solution (ordering from another dealer like Pat or Dave Smith).

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Was really pumped about the diesel, now, not so much.

Limited (because of 3.0 CRD availabilty) 36,192 + $995 des + Off Road adventure II $2221 + CRD $4005 + block heater $85 = 43498 - 1% ( I hope ) = $43,063.02

Laredo 30,795 + $995 des + Off Road adventure I $886 + Block heater $85 + Trailer Tow Group IV $574 = $33,335 - 1% (still hoping ) = $33,001.65

Limited - Laredo = $10,061.37 difference!

yes, all the prices are invoice and destination is included. Both are available in that beautiful Dark green they call Black Forest, either would be ordered with the lighter colored interior. ( summers get hot! ) Either would suit, but was hoping for the diesel because of long drives I ususally take. Towing is a factor, yes, BUT the towing duties are light as I would be pulling a smaller covered trailer with an ATV in it. So not that heavy. Unless I actually get lucky and bag an elk then add another 1000 pounds. And yes off road to me means OFF-ROAD, like miles and miles.

So now the penny pinching.

Laredo up to 25 mpg ( yes mine will be less as I am sure this is for the 4X2 and I NEED 4X4) This is the only mpg estimate i could find for the 3.6l in the Laredo.

As an aside, Why would anyone want a two wheel drive JEEP? After all, it's a JEEP! And that is a good thing.

Limited up to 30mpg with the 3.0l diesel ( yes also a 4X2 but i'm trying to keep things comparative. )
If i use today's prices ( forcasting fuel prices is about as accurate as alchemy )
$3.77 / 30mpg = $0.1257/mile for the diesel
$3.09 / 25mpg = $0.1236/mile for the gas

So the diesel would pay for the extra $4,005.00......never. In fact i would be going backward with each mile Driven.
Since I tend to keep my vehicles for 100,000 + miles, 100k X -.0021/mile = -$210 in the hole by buying the diesel.

So let the begin. I realize diesels often ( though not always) exceed EPA estimates, I just used what hard numbers are currently available. When trying to compare maintenance costs in gas verses diesel it gets dicy because it really depends a lot upon how they are driven. Dust and gravel roads/no roads are kind to niether.

Given; Limited is a nicer vehicle and the Quadra drive II is better. I'm not so keen on the QD lift that comes with the Off Road Adventure II.
(AWY) on the Limited is much the same as (AWL) + (AHX) on the Laredo

Yes, I wanted the diesel. But do I want it to the tune of $10,061.37?
Maybe I would be better off just getting a Ram 1500 crew and skip towing anything. The new Rams are ALSO rated at 'up to' 25mpg (same cravat about 4X2 verses 4X4) Grand Cherokee diesels won't start production until March 25th. Ram's will not have the 6'4" box until ? ( late availablity, however long that means ). So no help there.

Maybe I should hold my breath waiting for the Jeep Gladiator.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Dakota - if you join an affiliate program or have employer affiliate, the dealer should give you 1% under invoice no matter what. That is what it is designed for. If a Dealer won't accept it, then it is time to move to another dealer.
