Detailed pricing leaked on 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee lineup - including the new EcoDiesel
The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is available in five trimlines for rear wheel drive models and six trimlines for four wheel drive models with the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT being the only trimline that is offered exclusively as a 4x4 model. The least expensive configuration for the 2014 Grand Cherokee (4x2 Laredo) carries an MSRP of $28,795 while the range topping 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT starts at $62,995 while a fully loaded GC SRT costs somewhere in the area of $73,000. These prices do not include the $995 destination charge (nor do any of the prices below) but with a spread in price that ranges from $29k to $73k – there is a little something for every prospective SUV buyer.
As mentioned, the least expensive package for the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the Laredo models which start at $28,795 - $1,100 more than the Laredo models for the current (2013) model year. The Laredo comes standard with the 3.6L Pentastar V6 mated to the new 8-speed automatic transmission. Those who want just a little more out of their 2014 Grand Cherokee can opt for the Laredo E which is new for 2014 and starts at $30,495 - adding goodies like power seats, roof rails and Sirius Satellite radio. Like the base Laredo, the Laredo E is available only with the 3.6L V6 engine.
The first 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee trimline to offer optional engines is the Limited model which starts at $35,795 - $1,300 cheaper than the current Grand Cherokee Limited 4x2. The Grand Cherokee Limited comes with the standard 3.6L V6 and the 8-speed automatic transmission but for $2,195, buyers can opt for the 5.7L Hemi V8 or for an additional $4,500 (over the base price) buyers can opt for the new 3.0L EcoDiesel.
Next in line is the 2014 Grand Cherokee Overland starting in 4x2 form at $42,995, which is $2,500 more than the 2013 Overland models. The Overland also derives its power from the standard Pentastar V6 but for the same upcharges of $2,195 or $4,500 – buyers can opt up to the 5.7L Hemi or the 3.0L EcoDiesel.
Finally, the top of the line rear wheel drive 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the Summit model that was present at the Detroit Auto Show debut and this 4x2 premium package starts at $47,995 - $3,500 more than the 2013 Overland Summit models. The 2014 Grand Cherokee Summit comes with the standard Pentastar engine as well but this top of the line package comes with a higher price for the optional engines. The 5.7L Hemi will add $2,695 to the MSRP of the Summit models while the new diesel V6 costs $5,000. The Grand Cherokee Summit models are loaded enough that there are only a few options like the $95 engine block heater, the $995 Mopar Chrome Edition group or Exterior Appearance group and the $1,995 rear entertainment system package.
When it comes to the trail rated four wheel drive models, the trim packages follow the same path with the exception of the high performance 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. The 5.7L Hemi is available for the Limited and Overland models for $2,195 ($500 more than 2013 models) while the Hemi will set Summit buyers back $2,695. As is the case with the 4x2 models, the new 3.0L EcoDiesel V6 is available for the Limited and Overland models for $4,500 or for $5,000 for the Summit models. For those who are unclear, there are no engine options for the Grand Cherokee SRT.
