I know he's not getting at that price, but maybe they'll come down in price enough so it's doable.

The 2013 "aggressive" grill is what I fell in love with. I never would have looked at a Jeep if I had not seen the Summit grill at a stop light. The grill just grabbed my attention. The 2014 grill would not cause me to look twice. The new grill is boring. But that is just my opinion.

Exactly. Low ball them enough to meet somewhere in the, 'middle'

I've seen new '13 Summits for $42.5k. So, $40k + fees isn't too far off from my offer. Hopefully they feel the same way.

Re: Saw 1st 2014 Today ... NOT Impressed!

I like my 13 much better than what I've seen on an equivalent 14 so far. I'm sure the tech., etc. is better in the 14, (I haven't driven one), but the new front/rear lights and design changes on the 14 just don't do it for me.

I saw a white '14 GC in my rear view mirror today. It looked happy.

Re: Saw 1st 2014 Today ... NOT Impressed!

I like the look of the 2014s which is not normal for me. I thought the 2nd gen of Grand Cherokees look funny and then they grew on me. Then I thought the WKs looked funny and now the older models look odd.

Re: Saw 1st 2014 Today ... NOT Impressed!

Having owned both a '12 and now a '14, I'll take the '14 any day. The difference in transmissions is night and day alone. The interior is nicer and quieter, and the technology is far better. Mind you, I went from a Laredo to a Limited, so that's part of it. But the MyGig in the '11-'13 has nothing on the 8.4" in my Limited, I'm glad I didn't bother with getting one in my '12. The flipper glass was no big loss, I never used mine. One less thing to rattle or break. I don't have the funky headlights, so no loss there. The new rear end, to me, looks nicer and cleaner than the old one. It's all a matter of opinion though.

Re: Saw 1st 2014 Today ... NOT Impressed!

I had a 2012 Laredo X and just picked up a Black 2014 Ltd tonight. I can tell you first hand that the 2014 is far superior. It drives better and the interior electronics (I got the 8.4") just makes the '11 - '13 seem outdated if you will.

When I first read your thread subject title it screamed to me "guy with a '11-'13 feeling bad about not having the new toy". I opened the thread and saw I was right, no surprise.

You can talk all the trash you want about the exterior trying to justify the feeling of having one pulled over on you by Jeep with the new redesign but we ALL know the '14 are SUPERIOR and you're jealousssssss.

No he isn't.

Good paying job? LOL! Ok. It's decent, that's about it. I survive, no extra anything.

I didn't do anything. Ran into him yesterday.

I don't think robots can understand English....

Sounds like something any woman i know would do/say.

Did he and his hot lady passenger point and laugh at you when they drove by?
