2014 Jeep Cherokee
I've been researching and eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2014 Jeep Cherokee here in Houston. They are starting to trickle in finally! The one question I've not yet answered for myself is regarding the FWD vs. 4x4 option. Obviously there is no need for 4x4 in Houston. My hope is that I'll keep this car for a good long time and my plan is to eventually live in Colorado where 4x4 will certainly be handy to have. However, there's no guarantee I'll end up there... so my biggest dilemma is really whether or not to invest the extra $2000 for "just in case" and whether or not that investment would benefit me on resale value. Thoughts? Opinions?
Any thought on how the FWD will perform off-highway, "easy" off road terrain? This will be my 1st Jeep since the I drove the old boxy model way back when... will I find myself seeking out off road opportunities and wish I had 4x4?? LOL It'll stretch my budget to add the $2000 4x4 price tag on top of the other options I want so trying to make the most educated decision possible before heading to the dealerships.
Other than that, any price negotiation advice? I have a feeling they won't budge much since there seems to be quite a demand for these.
