MY12 Production dates

I've just purchased a new Laredo CRD which was advertised as MY12 but it's build date was August 2012 so I *think* that makes it an MY13 if I'm understanding the production dates on Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - 2013 Grand Cherokee features, options and pricing

Would that be right? As MY13 Production started June 30 2012 therefore MY12 ended at that point?

I also note my Laredo has the Overland grille insert rather than the standard Laredo/Limited one - and on 2013 features list i see a note -
Due to parts shortages, Grand Cherokee Laredo and Limited vehicles built from August 29th through September 7th received the Overland mesh grille insert versus the standard slat grille insert.

So that would further tally with the understanding it is MY13.

BTW, I'm in Australia - not that should matter at all...I just thought I'd mention it

Cheers.

Kirk.

Re: MY12 Production dates

Look at the VIN. Position 10 indicates the model year. I believe 2012 would be "C" and 2013 would be "D".

Would have to be a '13 if built in August. You can 100% verify this via the VIN, 2013 models will start with a "D" in the last 8 digits, i.e. DC500001.

Cheers guys. Will confirm via the VIN. I pickup the car next week as I'm getting leather and a few extras fitted.

Re: MY12 Production dates

Actually just realised the VIN was quoted on the contract and it is indeed DC534XXX, so MY13 it is.

Cheers.
