UK & Aus To Skip 17MY GC ??

Hello all,

Does look more & more likely that the United Kingdom & Australia will skip the 17MY Grand Cherokee and go straight to the 18MY in my opinion.

Over here in the UK we're "only just" getting the 16MY

And with the 18MY just being 4-5 months away, i can't see the 17MY getting a chance

Does anyone know more ?

Thanks

I think you are right, especially the diesel. Even if you could place an order today it would be 3- 4 months for delivery. So you would wait for an MY18 wouldn't you? If we ever see the diesel again that is....

Does any one know if, or when the diesel JGC will be released so that the consumer can purchase a vehicle?

If there are diesel JGC already build and sitting in compounds in the USA will or could Jeep be selling them at a very discounted price.

Thanks for any info

Quite a number of 2017s have been shipped/delivered to AU and New Zealand, as well as other RHD countries. Not sure why none have been built for the UK market, it's possibly they will be running some as there is still 4-5 months left for 2017 model year production.

They must be hiding them somewhere.

Looks like they are available in NZ.

Certainly looks like a 2017, correct grill, shifter and wheels. And recovery points.

As usual, looks like Australia gets shafted by FCA.

Thanks for the update Milous,

I'll have to wait and see what happens here in the UK.

Hopefully "Jeep UK" will get things sorted for the 18MY and not leave us waiting another year.

Out of curiosity, how do dealers run in the UK? I've heard ordering to specification is more common in Europe than in the US. For example, the local dealer I'm buying my Grand Cherokee from has 75 Grand Cherokees in stock (of course I still had to order one with my desired options!). Do dealers not have much in the way of inventory on hand?

Wow, so 2017 diesel, even though they aren't approved in the US yet, they are exporting them to other markets.....

Re: UK & Aus To Skip 17MY GC ??

My guess is that they are getting stored until they have sold off the remaining 2015/16 stock. There are still 775 units listed as new on carsales.
