Thumbs up 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

I received an update from my local dealer about the diesel ordering scenario. This may have been posted elsewhere, but wanted to make sure to share it. At my small dealership, the owner's son is just as excited about ordering a diesel as I am. The salesmen at the dealer are keeping a close eye on things for him (mostly) and communicating with me.
This page tells the dealers that they will be trained on the diesel version starting May 6th, a positive sign ordering will happen soon. From what they tell me expect ordering to start sometime in June.

THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL WITH THE MOVING EXIT!

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

Thanks for posting an official image of the information although it has been posted elsewhere (Pat the sales guy at Fields Auto- Illinois) has been keeping us up to date.

If I remember correctly it's posted in the 2014 JGC ordering/prices section.
I like that it has its own topic so I'm all for keeping updates here.

I'm curious as to what their "training" entails.

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

I agree, a lot of CRD stuff is buried in that huge ordering thread so it's good to break some conversations in the diesel sub forum.

Milous posted that he is still hearing late June and the Q3 may be a little breathing room in case that slips. Either way it does sound like they are finally gearing up to start US production around July. Deliveries hopefully by late August (optimistic) - more likely September time frame.

Yes good to see at least a light at end of the tunnel !

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

Forget I said anything about a light, as of today it is just a long dark tunnel. Actually, I take that back. Ordering a CRD is more like being in a maze and the breadcrumbs that Jeep leaves just lead us to another dead end. (I.E. the $500 coupon.)

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

Now sounds like August ordering with deliveries in October ... Just in time for diesel price to rise.

If it was a train, I'm certain it was running on Coal or even Natural Gas...No way could it have been a Diesel train. I don't think those exist.

Re: 2014 JGC Diesel Ordering

Don't usually look at torque, we use "tractive effort" to measure the power at the axle. But a little quick math will give you some approximate numbers.
GE 12 cylinder four stroke develops 4,400 hp. You get roughly 22,000 ft.lbs. of torque at 1050 rpm. That drives the alternator, which in turn powers 6 electric traction motors that drive the wheels.

Must be fun starting those things up on a cold day.
