couldn't resist
 
Well yesterday I stopped at a dealer that now has a pretty good inventory for 2014's. So I took a Black Overland with the 5.7 for a test drive and that was it. I picked up a max steel Overland with black interior today. Traded in the 2012 3.6 Overland the performance is night and day.

The finance guy at my dealer was asking me why on earth I was trading in a '12 for a '14 - I'd only had my '12 for a year and a month!

Told him the transmission and interior were all the reason I needed to go to a '14 :)

This is why I refuse to even drive past any of the local Jeep dealers :D

Every time I have test driven a new Grand Cherokee I have bought one. That's why my last 4 Jeeps have been Grand Cherokee Limiteds. I am staying the hell away, though I have no complaints with my 2012 Limited 5.7. If I had the 3.6 I would have traded it in for the 2014 5.7 too.

^^^^ ditto. I was set on replacing my ZJ w/ a JKU. Test drove three times and all was set for me to buy the Wrangler. Then, I told the sales guy... I am going buy the wrangler anyway, so let me test drive the Grand Cherokee. Hardly drove 20 feet and I said.. screw Wrangler, I want this. LOL. Ended up buying my 2012 GC.

Couldn't resist? Dood, isn't this your third WK2? Your dealer should paint your name on the parking slot nearest the front door.

This is why I try to do all my negotiation over email. They want to get you in the dealership very badly so you can make an emotional decision.

Not to say you can't negotiate a good deal when you're there...but makes it easier via email.

Hey, he's just getting his full enjoyment out of the platform. It'll be mission complete once he gives the '14 to his wife next year and moves up to a '15 SRT for himself :D (says me who has no room to talk because I'm on my second WK2).

Lucky for you the my14 will be around for a while.

Did they take care of you on the trade? Just curious how well the 12 held up with value.
