I think pricing is going to be key to the success of this Jeep. I think anything over 50K will price them right out of the market (my opinion of course) I'd like to hear everyone's thoughts on what they will pay for the Jeep Cherokee Diesel and what you think is a price that will kill sales.

I'd like to see a decently loaded Cherokee Laredo come in around $40k-$45k. I think that would be a good price range and certainly a lot cheaper then the BMW X5 diesel, Audi Q7 diesel and Tourareg.

I hope they could get a Laredo for less than 40,000 dollars.:cool:

Based on the pricing info, shown elsewhere in this site, we know it will be around $4000 more than the V-6 gasoline version. With that premium in mind and considering the actual fuel mileage differences between gasoline and diesel engines, it will be a long haul before the diesel buyer will break even if ever.

I'm close to ordering a new GC with either the diesel or hemi. Would really like the diesel. I have a 19 ft boat I tow. Have an 08 with the 4.7L. I've driven all 3. Obviously the Hemi has the best pickup. The V6 wasn't bad, and the Diesel was pretty impressive. Having been around diesels for years ( I spent almost 10 programming 6.9/7.3l power strokes in 1985) I like the diesel. Just worried about costs. Not just purchase, but operating. I'm starting to do a cost analysis. Anyone have any real fists to contribute? Oil changes, DEF fluids, fuel filters, other costs? I know the gas engines should be cheaper, but I just want to know how much.

In addition, I'd love to know what people have paid. Those that care to share relative purchase prices. Thanks.

Got a price of $46916 before tax and title.

GC limited 4x4

Hi Nick,

We have had the oil burner since the first of the year. About 53k for the Summit model. My 2 cents is this: if you are even close to considering the diesel, go ahead and spend a few extra bucks. If you are gonna spend 40, then an extra 5 or 6 won't kill you, but what it will do is keep a constant smile on your face and you will forget about that boat even being back there.

I drove the diesel......wow......what a stump puller compared to the V6. The Hemi has the holeshot, but that Diesel moves pretty good......Im more comparing the Hemi to the diesel. The V6 is no comparison as they are for different uses. The price difference with the hemi is only about $1300.....

Can I ask you a few questions?

Any issues to speak of?
How much DEF are you using?
what has been your avg MPG to date?
Oil Change interval?


Thanks...N

FWIW... Our 2014 Jeep Cherokee Summit's MRSP is $57,190. Invoice is $50,408. Price w/o trade in was 7% below invoice, less rebates, plus $389 processing plus taxes. Some dealers in the Northern Virginia area were honoring a "group buy" deal, which was nothing more than a way to move a lot of JGCs off their lots. So far after one month and 2,700 miles, I'm exceptionally pleased with this car. Quiet, powerful, and fast on the Interstate with great fuel economy. Hope this helps some.

Wow, that's a good deal! It seems around here dealers are starting to go $3000-$4000 off the limiteds, but that's about the best I've seen.

Not really! A couple of very minor software bugs which I'm sure will be fixed (if they haven't been already)

How much DEF are you using?

The dealer did not fill it when I purchased the GC. So far, in 5000 miles I've put in 2.5 gallons. I think the jeep estimate of filling it up every oil change will hold true

what has been your avg MPG to date?

Driving from Denver to NY at 75mph I was averaging 28.8 on winter blend.

Oil Change interval?

I'm at 5K, driving locally now, It will probably tell me to change oil at 7,5K. Haven't been towing yet.

I also have a 2006 Liberty CRD. I'm getting better fuel economy (and a much sweeter ride) in the GC!


Thanks...N

Wow - that is a great deal!! We definitely paid more than that for our 2014 GC Summit - although our MSRP was the same but the invoice was ~53K. Weird. Must be a Colorado thing.
