Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

i did some sluething of my own to find out what the REAL hold up is. apparently the '14 JGC diesel are shipped, but are being held up at the delivery yards of each destination city UNTIL chrysler receives the 50 state emissions certification. the 14's STILL have not passed (officially) EMISSIONS!!!!!!

I'm not sure all of this is correct. I have been told mine has been shipped to storage. I think what you said is plausible though.

What would be the harm of having a Chrysler press release explaining this though. If the delay is the government.

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

I E-mailed Jason at Jeep Information Center. He said all 2014 Grand Cherokee Diesel's met the 50 state emission standard b/4 they were built.
So something else is holding them up. Would like to find out what! How about contacting your dealer. Would think they would know!
Mine is still at final inspection.
Thanks

He is clueless. In the other diesel thread, there is a posting with the actual California emissions approval dated 10/3/2013 - OVER a month AFTER mine was built.

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

It would be nice if Chrysler was a publicly traded company again. We might check on the holdup through its SEC and other regulatory filings.

Usually is never worth it unless you want to sightsee or something on the way back.
I went to 5 local dealers until I found one that would even take an order. Once I did the lowest price I could negotiate was $1700 under MSRP (not invoice). Being happy just to be able to order the vehicle at all I accepted that.

Luckily, they ****ed up the order and left off Offroad Adventure II. Being in a wheelchair, I can't physically get into the vehicle without the air suspension and the ability to lower the vehicle. The dealer wanted to add $1795 to the order in order to fix their mistake. That was enough for me.

Shannon recommended a dealer in Houston. I called him and had exactly what I wanted ordered in half an hour. Total price was almost $4000 less than my local dealer.

I'd say that's well worth a 700 mile trip to Houston.

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

Any updates on the diesel? Anyone know the true MPG numbers yet?

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

I forgot to ask.. Anyone expect great deals on the diesel also? Or will the demand be too high?

You may want to look at the 2014 Diesel Production Thread... Yes there are great discounts to be had.

For real running numbers look at the export threads, the Aussies have already been running them for a while with great results.
