I think the point for Alex and Michael is that they need to go back to jeep aus and let them know how ridiculous it is for them to continue to withhold spec for the MY14. There are people here who are now obtaining build sheets and know exactly where their car is in the build queue via their E number. Jeep aus need to work out that it is 2013 and information is available through other channels. They would be far better to engage with early customers rather than playing stupid games.

I would just like to commend the above two gentlemen for participating in this forum.
It should not be a THEM and US situation. It is a shame most dealers avoid this site.
I do hope NSWelshmen support you guys.

Jeep Au must know what they are doing and what maximises growth in their business even though I cannot understand. I really do wonder if they would actually do better by being more open. Who knows. Car dealers MUST be losing a percentage of business with these practices but I am speaking from outside the industry so I obviously must be wrong. All I DO KNOW is that I won't wait like this again. After waiting so long now (well over 12 months) it would be rediculous to drop out when the cars are about to arrive. Even if Jeep Au and the Dealers had someway of bringing customers along with them rather than utter and complete silence. Next time, after this experience I will be more prepared. With hindsight, had I known this mess (The dealer getting the wrong colour car) would involve in excess of a 12 month wait I would have paid out more money and purchased a Land Rover. If I like this car which I suspect I will going by all the reviews and comparisons now on the net I would like to think I will upgrade to the next major model change. The Summit, which Jeep Au will one day introduce will almost certainly overpower their competitors if they continue along their current path when introducing the next major change. But I will be prepared and will not wait. Also, we still have Paige although she appears to have gone missing in action.
Hi Webber,

I'm happy to be on board here. Thank you for your support. I look forward to working together with all of you.

Holy Cow! Drool...... I want mine now...

Dang, if the Power 8-way Driver/Passenger Seats is included, I suppose the Seat Memory function would also be included??

What is the "Luxury Group" I wonder? Is there any chance that it also includes the Power Liftgate since it's available now as an option in the US?

Now I lost my sleep...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Bert, fantastic!
I'll add the differences for my Limited the same way tomorrow.
I'd do it right away but to celebrate turning over the 5 months since placement of my deposit on a " 3 - 4 months" delivery estimate, and with my car now held up in quality control for a full month, I called up a mate with a Toyota prado so I can put my boat in the water again. Off looking for barra!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Luxury group on my limited according to the dealer at time of purchase was power tailgate, GPS, coloured wood, but it may be different now. It is not split that way on the build spec, just in aggregate for options.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

GOOD MORNING ALL

For those who are work today have a great day for those with the weekend off get your "JEEP" on

Thanks for all the support both on the Forum and to those who have sent a few emails my way.

I would suggest "official" specs and pricing will be released as soon as a product launch is confirmed with media. Looking into how the lineup was released first time around for the WK, for the most part all the information came about around the same time the media got a close up look. I would think with an average of 250 GC sold in NSW every month and only approx 130 left, its all around the corner and personally cant come quick enough.

G'day Michael and Alex,

Welcome to the both of you. Don't forget to check out the group buy thread and get you bids in

By the way, heard from my dealer that to expect an advertising campaign late in this month with the official launch at the start of June followed by first sales early to mid June.

I know Milous estimated the first boat arriving around 20 may. Did he have a date for the second boat and a breakdown of the load ? Only 5 SRT's on the first boat so I really doubt I will get one of those End of June would be perfect. Take the wife away for a weekend for our anniversary to run the GC in.

As you can see from Milous' post it fits the timeline I was given. Advertising very late in May whilst GC's are at the clearing house. Early June they finally clear and Jeep Australia has them physically so they can have them at the launch for the lucky few to crawl over them. They then start selling the petrol GC's in early-mid June whilst the CRD's and the backup's arrive on the second boat early June which takes a couple of weeks to clear and then they make it to the dealers for buying in mid-late June. Most importantly, the second boat has the CRD's
