Why don't dealers have adaptive cruise in stock?

    I'm looking at a few new vehicles (Cherokee, Compass and 300), but no one has anything with adaptive cruise in stock.. My question: why offer a feature that no one seems to have on the showroom floor?

    I have a 2015 200 with adaptive cruise, and it seems that I got lucky when I found it. Also, I think plastic blanks where buttons should be looks tacky.

    It’s a relatively expensive, that’s my guess on why it’s not stocked in my inventory.

    All the safety stuff seems to be offered on the top option vehicles, be nice to offer it in the whole lineup. Power seats should be offered across the line also. Sun roof, leather, gps mean nothing to me, just extra expense.

    If you want power seats in a caravan you got to get a extra 2 grand "package".

    Toyota and Honda are starting to offer all safety technology in their lowest trims.

    They know that there is a big segment of the buying public that values safety and will purchase from the company that seems most serious about it.

    Even Ford and Mazda are doing the same with its entry level vehicles.

    Absolutely show care for the customer. I would wait for FCA to catch on but the time to buy is here now for me.

    One of my direct reports is buying a Hyundai Santa Fe. The SE and Ultimate trims come standard with 360 Multi-View Camera System. FCA is behind on safety technology like this. This is just another reason (of many) why Cherokee sales are declining compared to the competition.

    I'm very much hoping that the refreshed Cherokee offers a 360* camera on the Trailhawk, but I have a feeling it won't
