Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

if we were looking for a contact at head office, we have a new local CEO as of next week:

Cookies must be enabled | Herald Sun

The new chief is a she and has already acknowledged our plight: "We're selling everything we can get at the moment," she said. "In fact last month we ran out of Grand Cherokees."

I'm treating this a good news....

BUT he said they should be getting several through in the next cuople of weeks, Petrol models only.

SO, how come theyre getting them and no E/Von's on the sheet? Beats me.

The main man there, the office girl, will be in on Monday so I'll check with her on it. She seems to have her finger on the pulse.

Pete said maybe July, who knows.

And the SAGA continues.

Bluey, your third para down. Where you state "should be getting several through in next couple of weeks". Do you mean several cars or several E/von numbers?

Unfortunately I think the vehicles on the first boat due here late may will go to dealers as demo cars and not be available to customers. Early orders will have to wait for the second boatload at least. July / August still looking more realistic.

At least JeepAU admitting they are out of stock so can't say they are holding back to sell 2013 cars

Thanks AllyMac for that news update. This is an important piece of news! The adage 'You don't fix anything unless it's broke' is certainly in play here as I think Jeep Aus is fixing something 'broke'. I believe that we'll see some major improvements here as, (I am not being sexist here - more of a realist) a woman CEO is going to need to show a much greater level of performance in a male dominated industry. I believe Veronica Johns will certainly put a broom through the administration and make some real positive changes in light of the great, no, brilliant product that Jeep has.

Go Girl!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Webber, frankston Jeep "suggested" that they may be getting several MY14 JGC petrol models through in the next week or so.

As I said, no E/VON numbers attached to his Order Information Sheet, so who knows??

And as far as being out of MY12/13 stock I saw 4 new JGC on the floor of one branch alone, so quite a few still available around the country.

As far as female CEO's go, you cant go past Gail Kelly of WESTPAC and Ann Sherry of Carnival Cruises, so Veronica Johns is definitely a step in the right direction for Chrysler/Fiat/Jeep/Alfa Romeo/Dodge/RAM etc Australia or whoever theyre called this week.

They may get them onto the floor but will they give them to waiting customers? If I had high demand and limited stock I would hold the first ones as demonstrators. Anyone have any idea how many jeep dealers are in Aust? 2 demos each ( one base and one top spec ) and that boat load is gone

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Glad Clyde is being shown the door, his reign is a textbook example of providing poor service, but having a great product.
Lets hope Ms Johns show the companies true potential.

This is a hell of a long wait without any news. Their are 23 viewers on as I type all hanging out for something.
Can you help out with anything. Are Aussie Jeeps still moving on the line and do you know the current mix?
Any update of Overland CRD's.
This is worse than being a young kid waiting for Christmas.
