Milous, can you give us any info on your source? Is it a Jeep USA decision to release in Australia in July ( maybe July 4th is accurate ) and we have been ranting at JeepAU unfairly ? Wont stop us complaining about JeepAU but nice to know who is making the decisions.

There is a possibility that the release may be soon after that date
That ties in with a June 14th launch!!!!!!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

It will not be a USA decision to hold back a launch. It will be the Hobbits in Jeep Australia, who are trying to sell all old stock at premium prices before release.
Pity the poor dealers who have no stock.

More likely they have bulk tickets to the second state of origin

I do hope JA are monitoring the forum site at least we know they are doing something

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Webber, I do concur re your observations. Checked out the said vehicle at Werribee and had good look over it. It was the 5.7 Overland and I did love the front grille and bonnet profile of it.

Sales did tell me it was going back to HQ (maybe for the June 12 Launch!!)

Was asked to not take photos, thats ok didnt want to get the dealer in the poo either.

At least like you, I have seen the MY14 in the flesh!!
Shannon said that you were jumping out of your skin checking it out!!

On the way over Westgate I saw last nights ship was gone and another giant car carrier come in.
I went down to lorimer Street and took a mass of photos where the cars were unloaded yesterday.

Will zoom in and see if I can isolate MY14's, BMW X5's out side.

The new ship is the Toronto, was that booked in to pick up from Curtiss Bay???

Bluey

Thanks.

Ordered MY14 diesel Overland Bright White with Black interior
Had a look at the My14 in werribee this morning, the CD player takes up approximately half of the console. Very impressed with the overall quality of the vehicle. The salesman let me have a bit of play around with everything but requested that I not take any photos.

Seems like half of Melbourne has been to the west this morning
Must say - LOOKS GOOD!!!
Comments re the wheels are right, seem more graphite than alloy in color.
Instrument cluster looks the goods as well.
The Overland looks fantastic in granite.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I would say that the accidental delivery of a MY14 to Werribee has to be the blunder of the year by Jeep Aust.
I sure hope Anne Tanner had a hand in it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

In regard to a expected launch date, if Jeep are sponsoring the State of Origin, I expect there would be a launch at one of the games. I doubt if it will be tonight, so would expect 26th June.
Failing that 4th July.

Nah, Only 1/2 the population tunes into the 4th July game. It's usually all over by then!!Better audience tonight and the 26th!!
