The pricing of the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee has been leaked and made its way online. The folks at JeepGarage.org say they got their hands on the pricing and spec sheets. At a glance, we think the pricing could be the real deal.

Here is the pricing at a glance:

  • Laredo 4X2 – $28,795
  • Laredo 4X4 – $30,795
  • Laredo E 4X2 – $30,495
  • Laredo E 4X4 – $32,495
  • Limited 4X2 – $35,795
  • Limited 4X4 – $37,795
  • Overland 4X2 – $42,995
  • Overland 4X4 – $45,995
  • Summit 4X2 – $47,995
  • Summit 4X4 – $50,995
  • SRT 4X4 – $62,995

*Note: Pricing doesn't include a $795 destination charge

Now if you're wondering about the pricing for the 3.0L EcoDiesel V6, be prepared for sticker shock. The engine will cost $4,500 on the Limited, Overland, and Summit models. . We also don't know if you can get the diesel with 2WD since the pricing only deals with 4WD models.

Makes me scared of a theoretical Colorado diesel.

Diesel is not for your 2-3 yr lease deals or casual buyer, but for those 5yrs and longer who want the Torque, Mileage and performance that a diesel can give a 4x4.

When you think of the price and mileage over 5yrs, this is a fair price. Yes I wish it was half that price, but then they are buying them from someone else.

GM hopefully can leverage their baby Duramax Diesel line around the world and bring it in at a reasonble 2000 to 2500 with high mileage.

A question occurs then: how much have Europeans been paying extra for Jeep diesels in the past? I know just about every Jeep model, from Patriot to Wrangler to Cherokee to Grand Cherokee has been available with diesel power. I am under the assumption that Europeans prefer diesel, but how much are they required to pay over a gas model to tick that option box?

It probably varies depending on the country, but in the UK the diesel is standard and the only available engine in the GC (except for the SRT) and Wrangler. A diesel is optional in the Compass there.

What does it do to the price then, relative to our base 3.6L GC and current exchange rates?

EDIT: well that just made me mad as heck, at the Jeep ® UK site, configurator, spec-ing out a diesel Compass that we cannot get. That would be soooo ideal in a Patriot here in America.

Who knows? There is no correlation to pricing across markets. European Jeeps are built in Europe (at least they were in the DC era, in Austria, I believe?) w/ VM Motori Italian diesels.

      If you need a distraction on this Monday, may we point you in the direction of the 2018 Jeep Wrangler Owner's Manual and User's Guide. JL Wrangler Forums discovered both books on a public FCA Canada website and has provided PDFs of both for your perusal. 
      Is there any new information that can be gleaned? Yes.
      There will be a power-retractable hardtop. However, the top is not removable. A 4WD Auto mode that will shift power between the front and rear axles when needed. UConnect system featuring pages for off-road settings Max towing capacity of 2,000 pounds for 2-door models, 3,500 pounds for 4-door models.  The manual mentions both the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder and 3.6L V6, but doesn't mention power output. Thanks to an earlier leak, we know the 3.6 will produce 285 horsepower.

      The internet went aflame last week when a NHTSA filing revealed an interesting tidbit about the next-generation Jeep Wrangler. The turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder was said to produced 368 horsepower. A crazy number and one that made a number of people - some here on our forum question whether that was actually true or a mistake.
      It seems to be the latter as The Truth About Cars found an updated filing from FCA which now lists the turbo 2.0L at NR (Not Rated). Everything else on the table is unchanged.
      A source at FCA told Road & Track last week that the 368 figure was 'dead wrong'.
      For now, we'll to have wait patiently for Jeep to debut the Wrangler or for another leak to come out.

      Japan is a notorious market for American automakers to make a dent in. Ford called it quits last year, while GM sells a meager number of models; Cadillac sold 327 and Chevrolet moved 373 models last year. Critics say "nontariff barriers" are the key reason as to why Detroit hasn't been able to make any headway. Talk with people in Japan and it is a different story, there is still a perception of American models having poor quality and having to fork out a fair amount of cash to keep them maintained.
      But there is an exception. Jeep has been able to carve out a nice niche in Japan's marketplace. The brand is consistently in the top 10 of foreign automakers and sales have been climbing. 2017 is on track to be the eighth consecutive year of sales growth in the country. Through August, Jeep moved 6,344 models.
      But getting to this point took a lot of work and money.
      "We have to spend money and engineering hours to do it, but we think it's worth it," said FCA Japan CEO Pontus Haggstrom to Automotive News.
      "They are things that make our jobs harder and make it more expensive and time consuming to bring cars to Japan. But are they trade barriers? My honest opinion is, no. Are they excuses for why I can't sell or succeed in Japan? No."
      Jeep has been making efforts to make their models more appealing to Japanese customers.
      Tweaking drivetrains to qualify for Japan's eco-car incentives Offering right-hand drive models Equipping models with folding side mirrors and factory-installed Japanese navigation systems. Doubling their marketing budget since 2010 Refurbishing or redesigning more than 50 showrooms by 2018 The last one is important as previous Jeep dealers in the country were basically what you find in dealers in the U.S.
      "It's more about the brand and less about the origin," says Haggstrom.
      Jeep also has an ace up its sleeve that many automakers wished they had, brand equity.
      "The image of American cars as low-quality still persists here, even though a bit underserved. But Jeep has the most brand equity of any American brand. Japan shows it has a global following," said Christopher Richter, an auto analyst with CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets in Tokyo.
