ALL vehicles are assigned an E number once an order is placed and accepted by the factory - otherwise Chrysler would have no way of tracking or processing the vehicle. The dealer would have the E number (VON) and the VIN number long before they received the vehicle.

1. Blackberry has been discontinued for the remainder of the 2011 model year.

2. Order banks are closed for 2011 models. If you place an order later this year it will definitely be a 2012.

3. I am not sure about the 6-sp for the CRD, I will have to look into this.

4. I would assume that the wood trim shortage would be taken care of in the months ahead.

Regarding these, since I placed an order (signed contracts) on Friday,

1. Not expecting Blackberry. Hopefully there is no shortage on White Gold. (Its not a pearl colour, hope that it still looks good though).

2. If order banks are closed, does that mean that any new GJC ordered will be a 2012?

3. 6spd would be interesting, I'd love for my Hemi to come with a 6spd,

4. So there are no black wood overlands coming now? I have ordered mine with first pref black wood, 2nd pref sic elm, so it seems like I'll get the elm?

So it will look like this? Doesn't look too bad


Does that also mean we Aussies can choose a light interior leather colour? I would loooooove this interior

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Memo from dealer below and I have no idea why it mentions the light frost beige & saddle interior's when were told they are not an option for us......................

Dear All,

I would like to clear up the confusion regarding the available woodgrain for Grand Cherokee Overland.

When the Sales Brochure was printed we were lead to believe that the available woodgrain was as follows:
- Black Olive Ash Burl Wood standard with Black leather trim
- Medium Olive Ash Wood standard with Dark frost beige/Light frost beige or New Saddle/Black trim
The Black Olive Ash was the only Wood shown in the brochure, as at the time of printing we were not going to offer the other trim colours.

Now we have encountered another factory restriction which has meant we cannot get the Black Olive Ash Wood. Rather than not receiving vehicles at all, we instructed the U.S. to build all our vehicles with Medium Olive Ash Burl Wood – sample below.



At this stage we are unsure when the Black Olive Ash Wood will be available, but will keep you informed of all future outcomes.

A revised Sales brochure is currently in development, however until this is available please forward this information onto your dealers.

TJ Dark frost beige/Light frost beige or New Saddle/Black trim
Not what the rep told me today.
He said Black on Black or Beige/light frost no saddle.
I would have loved the saddle.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

arrrgh, so much confusion.

So the New Saddle is definitely out? Are you guys talking to Jeep Aus? or your dealers?

either way, I'm not too fussed, as I'm getting White Gold exterior, black inside with dark tint (on the front two windows cos rest is Privacy glassed anyway), should look good.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

i will be calling the rep in the morning to confirm. Not talking to the dealer anymore.
It is confusing.
If the official Chrysler rep does not know what is going on, what hope do we have.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

so apparently mine is now due late July - very freakin unhappy.

The order (wonder if it was really ordered for the date given) was delayed. I call BS and the dealer naffed it up.

Oh well - 2 more months of saving for mods I guess.....

Unless anyone knows of a Stone White Laredo that is not under order but arriving in soon that can be snaffled by my dealer?????

Oh - and apparently there is a package to say sorry coming from Jeep, bet it isn't a Wrangler though.......

Re: WK2 DownUnder

I spoke to my dealer's sales manager,

apparently order has been placed but I won't be assigned a VIN or VON. ETA is late July.

According to the guy Blackberry is still a possibility, but the black wood is definitely not available. I told him to enquire about the new saddle colour, but it seems like he'll just be keen to get me whatever asap.

Either way, As much as the New Saddle looks great, White Gold + Black interior would be nice anyway.
