Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Cash on the hood gets done when inventories are too high. Two months ago it was cash if you bought a Hemi Jeep. Now diesels. Why give somebody a big discount because they can no longer order a 2014 GC diesel? Just let them order the 2015 instead (which they won't allow) and Chrysler doesn't have to reduce its profits by $1500. If it was really a supply issue you could just order a 2015 and the delivery time would be 4 months instead of 2 months. Think about it.

Must be used by 9/30/2014. We can't order a 2015 GC EcoDiesel because the dealers have too many 2014 GC diesels sitting on the lots!! And they don't want us to buy a 2015. The offer is tempting except I want a GC Summit Diesel and the dark 2014 interiors are depressing, especially on cold stormy days here in the northeast. By the way those light carpets are popular on luxury vehicles here for the same reason.
I want this. How did you get this offer?

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Best I can tell I got it by signing up awhile ago for news about Jeeps on the Jeep web site. Probably told them what I was interested in. I have used the build and price tool so maybe they know I want a diesel, but that seems a little far fetched. It came from Jeep Program Headquarters.

I'm in the same boat, but if I get one of those in the mail it may push me over the edge and I break down and get a 2014. Have found exactly what I want on two local car lots (white Summit 4x4 diesel with brown interior).

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The trick for getting a coupon seems to be going through the build/inventory/trade appraisal tools to the point where your contact information gets sent to a local dealer. Simply requesting a brochure has never gotten me a coupon. I used the black book trade appraisal tool a couple of weeks ago and my coupon showed up today (too bad I already bought something else last week)

Why did you get rid of it, and what did you replace it with?

That's consistent with the general lack of awareness the reps have exhibited. One dealership had this to say via an email followup:

"I just had to get the word from upstairs and here it is. Discussion on MY 15 vehicles have not even started yet. Our build allocations are on a different roster to both the American and Canadian markets and what works for those market won’t necessarily be even an option on our cars.

Your choice to wait for my15 models is fine but I will not be able to quote a price until the cars are on their way – which is to say late this year early next year.I am more than happy to quote pricing on any car in stock or, if you wish, to order a car directly from the US in your preferred spec. Cars ordered in this fashion are charge at full retail."

Unless you're getting a Summit, there is no reason to consider waiting for MY15.

Yeah, if you don't mind the fact you are spending the same amount regardless of a 14 or 15, and you are taking on extra depreciation by buying a 14 this late in the game.

As for as delivery on my 15 w/ diesel, I'm still being told estimated shipping date is 7/27.

Those folks are in Australia....(Snuke and company)...and are in a different situation relative to "when" MY15 will be available. They will not see them until CY2015. So Snuke's statement that unless someone wants the new features in the MY15 Summit, there's no point in waiting is very valid for folks "down under".
