Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

From the first post in this thread, maintained by Milous:

EXF 3.0L CRD $4,500 ($4,005) (late availability)


I'm not sure they can place an order yet.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

CRD is late availability, apparently because of the tranny. I doubt they wanted the entire line up to be late availability, so they try it out on the worst selling engine.

Re: Latest victim of no-start problems

You should be happy they took it to a different dealer. You weren't happy with the first one. Maybe this one will get it right.

Rent a car and take your vacation. It's not worth missing it.

Re: Removed JEEP from hood of my 2016 Grand Cherokee Summit

I don't like that the break between the two words couldn't be centered. If I didn't want my Jeep Summit to say Jeep, I may have gone with Summit.


But if the owner likes it, it is good.

I just checked a V6 2016 Overland build. The ORII package for $395 does not include QDII. That is a stand alone option for $795.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

In the past there were options listed at one price, but when you selected them it came back that selecting it would also add "xyz" and that would change the total price. Time will tell.

Aren't there just 4 bolts that hold the seat in place? If a jump doesn't work, a wrench might be quicker than trying to charge the battery.
