Your dealer has a VON the day he/she orders it.

Dealer could not actually enter order until 5/08 (new allocation period). Your dealer should have a VON by now.

re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee KL - Features, Options & Pricing

Hi Milous

I have a question which hopefully you can advise on.

Is the 2.0L Diesel 170hp ready to go yet?

Reason I ask, is that CJD Aust are preparing to launch the '14 KL here downunder and we spent a bit of time at the dealership today going over the 'sample' Sport model that has been delivered to them. No testing driving - just a look and sit in KL in preparation for the launch in June.

Checked the DB on shipments and allocations also and whilst a number of vehicles have arrived in the country already, all appear to be petrol not diesel.

We will be ordering in the next 10 days hopefully (once pricing is out), the Limited with the 2.0L 170hp Diesel with the 9-Spd 4WD Auto Trans (DFJ).

Various thoughts being tossed around as we perused the CJD Aust spreadsheet that lists the bundled options etc, and one of them was 'perhaps the diesel is not quite ready yet'

I guess what I'm asking is, will I have a 6-8 week wait (or thereabouts) for my new KL once the order is placed or will it be longer given that we want the diesel?

Also, as an aside, very surprised to see Remote Start as a feature listed. Was not expecting that and probably won't believe it until I see it but nevertheless happy with that (even though we will probably never use it).

I'll have to dig around a bit and see what I can find out regarding CRD production. Being that KL has been so popular here I would think that export production would be somewhat limited for awhile, especially considering it's so close to the end of the '14 model year.

Regarding a "6-8 week wait" I assume you meant from time you place your order until vehicle is built... that would be very optimistic (even for U.S. customers) as KL production is bottlenecked somewhat in QC as well as transport.

Thank you Milous

No problem - I guess we are just all trying to gauge approximate delivery from time of order at this time. The 6-8 week time frame was just pulled as a possible time frame.

Understand now it will be longer, which is fine - just so we know.

Thank you again.

Interesting split. Do you have this statistic for Canada by any chance?
