Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Where's the best place to advertise our 2012 fully loaded trail rated Grand Cherokee with mods added? Dealers rarely offer their best current value and we'd love to get an order in for the new 2016 Overland. Thanks for reading!

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

well after my complaining about the price, I just ordered a 16 summit with the hemi. I guess I'm a sucker. Passed on the entertainment system. Too expensive for something that I'll never get to enjoy. Didn't like the idea of losing half my center console space either. Hopefully it will be worth the wait.

off to go enter my VON to Milous....hope they build 'em quick!

CD $195 --------------- -> $445 ------------> +$250 CD
Freight $995 ------------> $995 -------------> +$0 Freight

Total $54,880 ---------> $57, 830 --------> +$2,950 Total Increase
Sticker

So about a 3% increase on base is not too bad but where they are hitting it are the options, 40% increase on v8 engine option and 130% on CD player. Also this is just a difference from my MY14 to current advertised MY16 I'm sure there were changes through MY15 also.

A fully loaded MY 2016 summit with diesel and bluray stickers in at $62,465
well, its really much close to 4% increase to base price, but a near 6% overall is silly.. and the $$ is cranking, they are just doing it because they can.


at this point based on timing, why would anyone order a 2016 (unless they need it now) when the 2017 order banks open in 6-7 months for the 2017?

A friendly and highly technical dealer might be able to make this happen.

The good old days where if you knew the internal production codes for items you could do stuff like ordering one with a 6.2 hemi or Hellcat engine are sadly long gone.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Maybe you hit on the secret path to getting a GC with three quick-change interchangeable engines?
I doubt they'd build one with more than a single engine in it...

Autotrader.com ... get it detailed, post a ton of photos (like 30), point out every flaw (with photos) so there are no surprises. I've sold 5+ on autotrader.com and all but one time the first person to see it buys it (the one that didn't buy it didn't really know what a Grand Cherokee was and after testing to see if their two golden retrievers could fit in the back thought it was too small...can't fix stupid I guess). I think the last go round I made $1600 more then dealer trade-in maximums and that is accounting for the sales tax savings on trade-ins too and cost of autotrader.com listing.

Good luck...

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Are the 2016 order banks ACTUALLY open now? I noticed Milous hasn't indicated that yet.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

So here's a better question. The change list indicates that the Limited models now get an acoustic windshield. The Summit already had this...but what about the Overland models? That would be a bit odd if the Limited and Summit models had this but not the Overland.

2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I could have sworn that I read somewhere that the 2015 Overland got an acoustic windshield. And the windshield in my 15 is different than the one in my 14 Overland was.

I don't know about the recon green, but the 2015-16 Chrysler 200 has red velvet pearl... more like maroon.
