Jeep News: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Pricing Leaked?

Recommended Posts

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.

      Since 2014, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles CEO Sergio Marchionne proclaimed that Jeep needed a three-row luxury SUV to better compete with the likes of the Cadillac Escalade and Lincoln Navigator. But this SUV, known as the Grand Wagoneer hasn't materialized. Numerous delays and debates about the design has caused the launch to be pushed time and time again. These delays have a number of dealers concerned that Jeep may miss its opportunity with this new model.
      "I think our window of opportunity is closing. We could have killed with [the Grand Wagoneer] if it had been available when they first told us about it, but it's a much tougher sell with interest rates and gas prices going up," said an unnamed FCA dealer to Automotive News.
      John Murphy, research analyst at Bank of America Merrill Lynch said last week at a meeting of the Automotive Press Association that the "Goldilocks" era in auto retailing was coming to a close. Murphy said the next five years would be tough on auto sales due to a number of factors, especially for those trying to sell high-end models.
      Higher interest rates Increasing gas prices Raw materials becoming more expensive Increasing competition in the light-truck sector The current plan is to launch the Grand Wagoneer in 2019, but production could be pushed back till late in the year or even into 2020. This is due to FCA's plan to keep building the current Ram 1500 at their Warren Truck Plant until the end of year. But depending on demand, this could extend production into 2019, pushing back the time needed to retool the plant for the Grand Wagoneer.

      Before the new Corolla hatchback hits dealers later this summer, Toyota has revealed pricing and fuel economy numbers.
      The base SE will set you back $20,910 (includes a $920 destination charge), while the XSE begins at $23,910. That will net you a new 2.0L four-cylinder with 168 horsepower and a six-speed manual. A CVT is available for an additional $1,100.
      This is what you get on either trim:
      SE:  Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning; 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay compatibility, and 16-inch wheels. XSE: 18-inch wheels, LED fog lamps, upgraded infotainment system, leather-and-fabric upholstery, and heated front seats.  As for fuel economy, the SE with the CVT is the mileage leader with EPA estimates of 32 City/42 Highway/36 Combined. The XSE CVT is next with figures of 30/38/33. For the manual, Toyota only has figures for the SE which are 28/37/31. Numbers on the XSE manual are coming soon.
