Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Guys, I am not quite sure what I am reading here. allypally has worked out that the cars currently at the port in America bound for Australia will arrive in Melbourne on the 21st June. CRD's are due to come down the line later this month hopefully. Then Milous indicated that some CRD's have passed through and are at the wharf for dealers.
Wharf on 16/4/13 for arrival Melbourne 21/6/13. That leaves me with two conclusions.
Hopefully some of these first cars are actually CRD customer orders about to be shipped? or enthusiasts on this site need there car to be made and shipped within the next 3 weeks to have any chance of getting a car before the end of July. Ie...will arrive in Melbourne around 14 to 21/7/13....then a week or two for the dealer to receive the car, then prep the car, register it and hand over. Hopefully this first batch ARE in fact CRD customer orders or they are about to come down the line.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

SUMMIT ! Wow this is big news or what? Love to see the jeep Australia backflip just like Australian politicians now.

Anyone getting good deals on MY13 CRDs now? I am trying to buy another CRD dirt cheap as MY14s hit the show room. If anyone come across a MY13 Laredo CRD at late 40k drive away price in NSW please PM me.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Webber,
I think you will find the cars that arrived on 16th April, will most likely be used by management and as Press demonstrators. It is unlikely any of them will get to the dealers for new car sales, other than initial demonstrator vehicles. Remember, last year SRT's sat around for months, being used for press days, prior to being released to the dealers. As a matter of fact, those cars (MY12) were already superseded (MY13) before release.

As a ball park estimate, you can consider the following timelines
day 1. Car rolls off assembly
day 2-14. Car sits in Detroit yard
day 15-20. Car sits on Railcar and gets shipped to Baltimore
day 21-25. Car sits on wharf awaiting ship
day 26-58. Car reaches port in Aust
day 59-69. Car sits with Prixcars
Day 70-73. Cars gets to dealers.
Day 75. Delivery.

The above estimates are based on a smooth transport and no hitches/delays.

very insightful and clearly from a man who has been through it !

based on that if RHD AU CRD orders are not already made or are not currently on the production line, then we are slipping into for August delivery..

There is only 1 non-SRT AU vehicle on the tracking page, it is a Laredo CRD that is currently in D1 status (scheduled for build).

Thanks MILOUS. Will wait impatiently.
Robo_70....Still a small chance. If one Rolled off today and we added allpally's 75 days that would take us up to the end of the first week of July with nothing going wrong.....here's hoping.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I was wondering if anyone knows if the 8.4" touch screen display is standard on the limited? I have ordered one and not specified this as an option because I thought it was included as standard equipment. Can anyone verify for me?
