Best Inventory Search Site

Looking for suggestions on the best way to search new inventory - to get as specific a vehicle as you want...so say a search for a Granite Chrystal Overland with Advanced Technology Group only that would list the dealers within a specified area that have that exact vehicle.
I have found even going to individual dealers sites will not let you specifiy down to indiviual options - e.g You can go 2014>JEEP>GRAND CHEROKEE>OVERLAND.....but that's as far as you can go - so it will throw up returns for all Overlands, including V8s, V6s, Eco Diesel etc.
So just wondering if anyone knows of a site that lets you search down to specific options.

Thanks.

Cargurus.com

I use this site all the time to see new cars. Idk if they have every single dealership but they have almost all of them. Also, sometimes the dealers will put a cheaper price on there and if you bring that into the dealership, they should accept it.

Thanks Makris0000 - this is exactly what I was looking for!
Interesting that it also shows how long a particular vehicle has been on the website, and by extension, sitting on a dealers lot - seen some Overlands sitting out there for 4mths or more - that's where the real deals are!
And some "nice" Dealer reviews as well -all and all a great site.

Re: Best Inventory Search Site

Since Jeep dealers are almost everywhere, I'd just send an email to the dealer(s) in your area telling them exactly what you want and what you'll pay. Let them do a dealer trade to find it and specify how many days they have to track it down.

Re: Best Inventory Search Site

Cargurus, hadn't heard of that one before. I looked, and they do have some nice search features. But oddly, when I checked the boxes for Limited 4x4, V8 and tow package, cargurus could not locate a single GC within 1000 miles. Tow package killed the results I was otherwise able to obtain. So... despite having the option, it seems that they aren't populating the option (because I know there are some with tow package around here!).

I have had decent luck with autotrader.com . I have been able to type the word "tow" into the 'additional search terms' box and get results. 4x4 and engine size are on pull-downs, along with color, fuel, and other stuff. You do have to click on "more search options" to get the full flexibility of the site.

You're welcome! One of my friends showed me this site and i love it. I got a great price on my GC Laredo and I was able to find which dealership had the one I wanted.

The site does have some bugs but to find generally what cars are at what dealers it does that fine. I have had problems with that site in the pst but its pretty good for the most part finding cars. Also I used auto trader but it's not as organized as car gurus.com

Re: Best Inventory Search Site

Have you thought about using one of the Group Buys on the board or using Tread Lightly for the discount.
