Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

The MDX is down in power (10 hp) but actually faster 0-60 and torque is more. They dropped about 300 lbs from the car overall and fuel economy is up significantly (old model 16 mpg city/21 mpg hwy vs...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Last I knew you couldn't yet price the diesel 2014 X5 ...only the gas powered. That being said ... People have been reporting getting the 2013 diesel X5 for up to $15,000 off MSRP as they make room...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I did the same and chose to bail for the 2014 Acura MDX.

Re: 2014 Summit Vs Overland Help/Wisdom Needed!

The Summit doesn't look as good to me and I don't care for the rims as much as the Overland. One thing that could push me to the Summit would...

Re: 2014 diesel production

We are officially bowing out on the diesel wait and have decided to focus on other brands. Most likely we will end up with an Acura MDX or Infiniti QX60 hybrid ... Possibly BMW X5. Tired of the...

Re: Those waiting for diesel - what will you do?

Re: Those waiting for diesel - what will you do?

It will not be diesel as I'm sure you know. The MDX is rated at 18 city and 27 highway for the 2014 model year in a 3.5 V-6 versus the diesel's 20/28. It sounds like Acura attempted to improve their...
