Ok so the 2014 Cherokee build and price is up on Jeeps website. I built up a loaded out Trailhawk and was a little surprised at the price.....41K. Thats well into JKU Rubicon territory.

:huh:

The starting price for a Grand Cherokee, 4x4, Limited, with V6 and 8 speed, is $37,795.

Exactly if your looking at the Trailhawk your looking for the "offroad" (I use that term loosely) capable version why wouldnt said buyer pick up the GC or the JKU Rubicon instead. At least the Wrangler has that mysterious suspension articulation thing that Cherokee knows nothing about.

Ah ah aahhh. No negative talk about the Cherokee until everyone and their grandmother has driven it twice on the Rubicon. :censored:

29.5K base price Trailhawk Cherokee (2014) +$1500 for the V6
42K base price Trailhawk GC (2013)

Seems like if you fully loaded the Cherokee, you get closer to GC, but you could go with a much cheaper Cherokee if you wanted, where as the base price for the GC is high no matter what.

Marketing aside, I don't think people will buy the Trailhawk for the same offroading conditions that a JKU Rubicon buyer would. I think the argument of Cherokee vs GC is more of a discussion if you're talking about fully loaded Cherokee, as that nears the GC price. But you could get a more stripped Cherokee (no leather, big sunroof, etc) if you wanted and save a bunch of money compared to GC.

I priced a Trailhawk and a Limited AWD with V6 & 3.517 Drive Ratio, Comf/Conv Group, Tech Group, Leather Group, Tow Group and sunroof.. The damage is $39,500.

It is considerably high when cross shopped with other competitors..

I think, they are making the same mistake with packaging and pricing as they are doing with Dart...

Cross shop what Competitor.... which other model( other than Jeep) has a Off road model? Not being critical just curious.

Let's come back down to reality...how does a basic KL with common options (A/C, power windows, etc) compare to Escape & CR-V & RAV4 et al?

Really? Go build a fully loaded Escape and it also gets into the upper 30's.

$4,000 more than my KK Renegade when equipped similarly, but with KL Trailhawk having much more equipment that I don't want nor need.

Bah!

$32,980.

The sort of off-road capabilities is only with Trailhawk, which yes no other competitor has it.. But on the other side, a top of the line Limited cost $39,xxx when fully optioned.

The Escape cost $35,xxx. $4000 less than a similar Cherokee Limited. And Yes Cherokee is the only one with a V6..

I didnt compare the other trims im guessing they are competitive with otber makes I was just looking at the Trailhawk to see how much it would be loaded. Remember many here said it would probably be 36K loaded out I was just surprised at the much higher price.
