Sounds like it was just a call to tell me they still had my deposit and would sell me a car when it suited Jeep Aust.
I have heard that "tactic" here in Melb also. . problem is some dealers are already low or out of stock.. so does HQ penalise the dealers that are good at selling so the low performers can catch-up and move their stock? me thinks not
They just want to try and sell you a 13 at full RRP ! and use the threat of delay to force your hand.. find another dealer

LOL. What if there ends up being ONE 2013 left that a dealer cannot sell, will it hold up the allotment for the entire country? Gotta love dealers and their spiels!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

My dealer indicated today that on 28th Feb. they would probably know what models willbe available. He also did not think that there will be a Summit.

If we don't get the Summit I am wondering whether they will bring out a
Laredo, a Limited, and a Summit badged Overland....plus the SRT.
I say that so as they have a more even spread of shapes/designs because a Limited and an Overland would give you the same shape. With the previous model the Overland-Summit in America was an Overland here. I am just speculating that our top of range may be a Summit rebadged Overland for Australia with some features removed to lower cost like adaptive headlights, remove the 19 speaker HK system. The other alternative is that they import the American Overland and add some extras that are standard on the American Summit but the body shape would basically be a Limited. Boy, am I getting confused. Seen anything else on that line to assist Milous?

Hi Stuch, did your dealer give any explanation as to why he did not believe we were getting the Summit?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

There is definitely a huge breakdown in communications between dealers and Melb HQ when cars are ordered.
When there isn't an exact match for a new car order, they look at unbuilt stock cars to see if a change can be made.
This happened to me when I ordered a car.
ME: I want Beige Upholstery.
DEALER: No problem.
They gave me Black upholstery.
ME: I wanted Beige Upholstery.
DEALER: Ohhhh. Isnt Beige standard colour?
ME: NO. Black is standard colour.
DEALER: No problem, we will build you a new one, with BEIGE>
DEALER: To Jeep Aust. Is there a scheduled to be build car with Beige Upholstery?
HQ: No. But there is one with Tan upholstery which we can alter as it has not yet hit assembly.
DEALER: Great.
ME: You built the 2nd car with the wrong upholstery. It is Tan
DEALER: Ohhhh. But we asked HQ if it could be changed.
ME: Did they confirm they made the change?
DEALER: Ohhhhh. But they said they COULD do it.
ME: Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

So that is how cars get built with the wrong specifications.

Heck when I hear all these horror stories on how so many Jeep orders are stuffed up it gets me worried if I will ever see my order.

Lets hope there is some truth in the comments about information being released on 28th Feb.

Also Rubiconicon and Stauch have now both heard there is no Summit coming from "sources" and dealers which is totally in conflict with info here.
I will try call the dealer holding my order again this week see if he has heard anything about the 28th.. Just don't want to harass the poor guy too much as he is trying to do the right thing

Have you thought of trying that email process. I suspect you are right though, it won't get very far. I would like the Summit shape even if "badged" Overland. I suspect I am going to be very disappointed though. You would think Chrysler Aust. would like a top model to run against BMW X5 and the Merc., ie "adaptive headlights etc."
