New Inventory Search Update

Looks like Jeep updated the search page. You can now search the whole country. It did seem to take a step back with color selection as they are now listed Green, Blue Red etc... The layout is much better as you donít have to click on the different dealers. All they need to do is add seat color and engine size and it will be great.

Re: New Inventory Search Update

Look how old this post is and the inventory search is AT LEAST as bad as it was then. Is that supposed to be encouraging that they are aware of customer needs and quality? For crying out loud.

Re: New Inventory Search Update

I agree ... using search on Jeep's side is horrendous. You should be able to select set of colors that you like, engine size, trims etc. and search across multiple dealers.

For somebody to put this in there it is a 1/2 day coding job. Get an intern straight of out college and he will put this in there in no time. The search is already there, it just needs to be refined. I do think that they are doing this intentionally for some reason which is not clear to me.

You can select a set of colors. Not necessarily as specific as you may want, but you can select red, grey, black, white, etc, and will get the colors that fall into that category. So if there are two reds you will get them both. You can't AFAIK select engine size, but you can select 2 or 4 wheel drive, and you can select trim level.

When you set the distance, it will select dealers from closest to furthest. Once it exhausts all the exact matches it will start putting in 'close matches.

I just used it again to search for 2013 Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4s in black or white. The system worked as it should.

You make the choices using the edit buttons along the left side of the page.

You can search by exterior color but not interior color. I think you should be able to search also by options, engine, etc.

I don't disagree, but it has more choices than you thought it did. Chances are, most people shop for cars in their local area. So it's unlikely they will have to look at too many cars of a particular color to find one with the interior they like.

It sure beats having to drive from dealership to dealership and walking the lot to see what they have.
