Or you could just wait until the official launch in Aus when FCJD AU and the dealers are actually told anything about MY14, and see how they handle it then. I think you're assuming they're misleading everyone and being deceptive when they may in fact be, and probably are, just clueless. Who's to say they won't do a ring-around to those with orders to confirm when they have details of trims and options. You could always put your order on hold until the launch...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Milous love your work. Our order last year was based on the advice on the forum. The dealer said no 8 speed but I was so confident we placed the order for a Overland. My salesman is still saying no 8 speed!!!. My concern will be if they take things out of the current Overland eg adaptive cruise etc. We do not want a Summit because light frost is not an interior option, there is no off road pack and I prefer the Overland wheels. I will follow up with the dealer in the next couple of days because there is no information out of the Jeep Australia call center. I am sure though that the two posts Milous has reserved at the start of this thread will be for the Overland/Limited/Laredo specs when they become available.Regards.

Im thinking this is a press release vehicle destined for the Melb 2013 Motor Show in June -

what do you reckon?

I bet if Milous looks he will find one of each model heading for Melbourne

maybe they will gauge reaction to the Summit at the show before committing it to the line up. -- my Crystal ball is working overtime !

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Can this thread be made a 'sticky' and moved to the: Grand Cherokee - WK2 > Export Grand Cherokee 2011+

It would appear to be the natural home for this thread and would get more views IMO. Thanks.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Can any of my fellow Aussies recommend a Sydney (north-west) based salesperson that is good to work with and is a straight talker?

The two that I have been dealing with have recently stopped working for the various dealers and now I have to forge a new relationship. My first preference is Heartland Motors - Castle Hill, but I previously maintained contact with a salesman from Suttons Chrysler Jeep Dodge Waitara.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I would almost guarantee that the Summit that was built and being shipped to melbourne, will not be going to a dealership. It will be most likely be headed for Australia HQ.
The purpose of the car could be for compliance assessment, HQ Executive joyriding, or for presentation purposes to a seminar of dealers.
It does not essentially mean that these will be incorporated into the Australian Jeep lineup, nor equally does it mean they wont.
If anyone can analyse the rationale and thought processes of Jeep HQ in Australia, they must be a wizzard, or insane, as Jeep Australia generally does weird things, and appear to keep everything secretive. Take for example the storing of SRT's last year, where they sat in storage yards for months prior to release. I suspect one reason for that was to incorporate a wheel arch attachment to widen the gap between the wheels and the body, which is not apparently on the USA cars.
Generally everyone on this forum would know more about the Jeep processes, and models, than any Australian dealer salesman.

This is who I was dealing with at Castle Hill.

W: New & Used Car Dealer In Sydney - Heartland Motors

She wasn’t senior, and was relatively new, cam from a Kia dealership I think.
She was however very good at following up.
I was interested in the current model and they had a great Ltd Diesel demo that was kitted up we thought about.
But I have decided to wait for 2014, and I told her to contact me as soon as she has some real info, and they way she followed me up in the past I expect she will as long as still works there.

I will shoot her an email now actually.

Edit: Seems she is gone.
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Guess what. Seems we have a similar story. I have been dealing with Paige. I found she was mostly a straight talker and as you say, she followed up diligently. I was also dealing with Neven Vukelic from Waitara, who was also attentaive and not pushy.

Now this gets me thinking about trying for a group 2014 deal.....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I had also contacted Penrith, and they were average and told me 2014 would be here in 2015.
Parramatta is easier for me from a servicing front, Castle Hill is a pain, I struggle to get the Pajero serviced there.
Either way, I will play them against each other when the time comes.

Planning on Ltd Diesel, based on US Spec with Lux II & Tow packs.

I expect they will keep it the same where the V8 and Diesel already come with tow pack.
