Need a new gas range - current one has downdraft function

I have an old Jenn-Air downdraft range and want to replace it, does anyone know if there are many downdraft alternatives?

To my knowledge there's either Jenn-Air or KitchenAid which ultimately is the same company. KitchenAid will be slightly cheaper but be aware, because of the newer designed ranges, it doesn't matter what model you go with, you will need to make some changes the way the existing exhaust connects to the ductwork, in my case it wasn't easy and wasn't cheap either.

Thanks sc00ter77 - can you give me some direction - did you go to any appliance stores or straight to KitchenAid?
Who was able to help you with the exhaust/ductwork issue?

Sorry for the late reply, I got my appliances direct from whirlpool when they were having a sale online (rfd historic deal) but they can easily be purchased locally and bestbuy/Leon's etc even have the kitchenaid version.
For the installing I just used the same local company that installed my gas furnace, so any HVAC company should be able to do it.
