Wish to bloody hell they could put their efforts and money into organising the correct import of their bread and butter product called a MY14 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
Not onlythe decision making process of what JGC vehicles are coming downunder, but educating their dealers and salesforce into the product. And setting up a efficient dealer servicing and parts distribution business as well.
It all goes hand in glove with selling a product but this mob are incapable of doing that.
They are good at "Jeep; we got a Jeep Huh?? You gotta Jeeep; Yup, we gotta Jeep"
ads though. As that Brain Surgeon said to another in the operating theatre on one ad, 'IT AINT BRAIN SURGERY YOU KNOW!!"
Ive said this all before on the Jeep Aust Facebook to no avail.
Oh well, on the QM2 on Thursday, forget my Jeep (or lack of Jeep) worries for 2 months.
Internet is slow and expensive on the big vessel so I'll be out of touch for a while.
Dont slacken off Webber and Robo m8
Bluey
You're kidding yourself if you think you will be able to forget your jeep but a break from normal routine may distract you somewhat. I've got a feeling you will be cursing that slow internet service as you sit over their onboard computers. Enjoy that trip. We have only just got our passports and are thinking of starting our o'seas travelling next year. That trip of yours may be worth looking into.

Yikes, dont do that Webber. I need all the money I can get to pay for the increase in the new MY14 that Jeep/Fiat/Chrysler/Dodge /Ram/Alfa Romeo /Mopar LLC Aust (or whatever they're called this week) haven't told us about.
And Webber, catch up!!! This is our third trip on the QM2, itsa beauty.
I think we'll have Jackie Stewart on as a guest speaker on this one. He might tell us why Mark Webber (any relation?) cant win a race.
I'll let you know if I spot a MY14 over in Seth Efrika or Botsawana while I'm there. You never know.

Good to see you over here on our Aussie site set up by Milous. We are totally blind over here. No launch yet. Dealers are still in denial. When pressed for information they drool out a little info (often wrong). A lot of guys here have actually purchased cars and signed open ended contracts because dealers have no prices yet but buyers want to be in the first arrivals of jeeps. Looks like our top of range will be restricted to an Overland with many Summit options added as standard. Persons like me are naturally disappointed because I would buy the Summit if Australia went with it. Coming to terms that will be accepting an Overland with the extras as standard but would be really mad if Jeep Oz decided to bring the Summit in AFTER I have purchased my Overland. Most of us over here are still waiting on Milous' spies to give more details on our Overland CRD and a hopeful (although fading) newsflash that we ARE getting a Summit. Visit again

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

By the way Scottina06, You have a beautiful car. Apart from the looks why did you go with SRT. Do the cops allow you to use all those powerful resources. Like one of the interviews with the SRT designers, "this car is really great for cutting corners". Over here we can only drive our cars sedately so an Overland or Summit is really more appropriate.
Have thought of the SRT because of its handsome "mean" looks but what would an ageing guy like me need with a "launch" button?.

No one "needs" a launch button.

But it is cool to have!

fwdjeep is on a distinguished road
Had the Brisbane 4x4 show on over the weekend and spoke with a bloke who said he knows all about the 2014 etc and has ordered one and will be delivered in June 2013

I just laughed at him especially when he told me his Brisbane dealer

The dealers are up the usual tricks tell them anything but tell them often.

I told this bloke that the cars has not been ordered yet by Jeep Aust and no Australian car has been commenced to be built yet

He was horrified, and told me i did't know what i was talking about Silly man he believes the sales man

Our you beaut MY 14 "SALES LAUNCH" Downunder will probably be in Melbourne during the International Motor Show. That commences 28th June.
Thats 5 months after the MY14 release in Detroit.

In the meantime, Jeep OZ have not even bothered to Update their website, still bleating about the NEW 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Huuuuhhhhhh?????????
Jeep Australia | 4x4, SUV, Off Road, 4WD Vehicles

As well to demonstrate a point ;
https://www.google.com.au/search?sou...jeep+australia

Nothing at all about the MY14.
At least the US Jeep site gives a comparative choice between the MY13 and the MY14 models.

Why cant our backward management do the same?/

Oh, I know, the CIA,FBI and ASIO have said they cant give away international secrets!!

So take pity over there in Yankee land Scottina m8, we are indeed at the end of the earth Downunder!!

Ava Gardner (actress) was right when she declared Australia was "the perfect place to make a movie about the end of the world". On the Beach ; 1959

But we luv it anyways irrespective of certain inept motor vehicle management.
