    How hard or expensive would it be to cross the border and pickup a US model? Can you do that? I don't know any of the laws there in Canada.

    ALL are significantly less expensive here, I can almost get a new SRT Jeep for $60K! I am talking actual price at the dealer, not MSRP.

    To backup what I am saying - not just one dealer around here....

    New Grand Cherokee Trailhawk for 40K: https://www.larryhmillercoloradochry...fa52421159.htm

    New Cherokee Trailhawk 2.0T for ~39K: https://www.autonationchryslerjeepwe...1b2ff38d6d.htm

    New Cherokee Trailhawk 3.2 V6 for ~39K https://www.autonationchryslerjeepwe...1c1ffedfc8.htm

    39K cause I assume you don't qualify for the $500 military discount - assuming it's US military... pretty good assumption...

    You'd save on any choice 2.0T, 3.2 or 3.6 JGC any trim. (quicker than the Cherokee and in the same price range/slightly more - here)

    https://jeepcherokeeclub.com/4-2014-...0t-debate.html <-- interesting read. More mod potential with the 2.0T but have to deal with direct injection. Who's that guy with the "Race FIAT" ?

    I don't think it is that straight forward or everyone here would be doing that. I only live about 2 hrs from the US border so crossing isn't the problem. First there is the exchange rate. $40,000 US right now is equal to $54,000 CAD. Then the Canadian laws here are so F'd up that we would have to pay huge duties and taxes when we bring the car across the border. So suddenly a $40,000 car in the US would end up costing us about $60,000+ by the time we get it here.

    Yikes. Well just a thought, trying to be helpful. Most people around here buy new cars locally as many local dealer license plate frames and decals as I see.

    I have a buddy that just bought a new truck out of state because even though the prices in Colorado seem good, they are much better in surrounding states, that and they didn't have the exact trim he wanted - I never thought to do that but next time I probably will not buy local if I get new again.

    Appreciate the thought, but that's what we deal with here. Canada has become a landing pad for the rich.

    Prior to my racing adventures yes I did offroad my trailhawk quite a bit. It does extremely well for what it is. I still have my 1.5" lift on it (was approx $125)

    My vehicle in 2016 was just a bit under 40k CDN$

    Only options it didn't have was the vented seats and the adaptive cruise control. I was looking at getting a Grand Cherokee at the time with the offroad 2 package (basically what the trailhawk is today) and it was 60K so price wise there is no comparison. Offroad you really don't lose anything to the grand cherokee. There isn't a huge aftermarket but there is one so you can customize yours to your liking if you want.

    Thanks for the info. I plan on taking some out on a test drive soon, even though I plan on getting it next spring, just to get the feel of it. I'd be looking at just under $40K CAN for what I want as well. Question: does it come with Steering wheel paddle shifters?

    None of the Cherokee KL models come with paddle shifters, I wouldn't worry about it anyways the vehicle is faster when it shifts for itself.
