First deliveries to dealers?

I'm new to the forum but not to Jeeps - current JKU is our 6th Jeep and I lived on the Wrangler forum when I was shopping for that one. Milous was our mentor there and I'm happy to find him here too!

I'm shopping the Cherokee and want to do a test drive before we buy. I'm trying to figure out when we can expect to see first deliveries to the dealers. Production has been going on for a month or two and, based on all the press reports this week, the TCU software issue is apparently resolved. I'm guessing that all these already-built Cherokees only need a TCU software upgrade before they start making deliveries - does anyone have any clues how soon that will happen?

I would say end of next month. Our Trailhawk has an estimated ship date of September 9th. Assuming two weeks to get it from factory to dealer, it should be around the 23rd, barring any last minute software updates.

As far as those FWD units they've been building, I have no idea when or where we'll see those.

Why would it take two weeks to deliver anywhere from Ohio?

Re: First deliveries to dealers?

I'll edit this later but here is the logistic information from a recent delivery. Shipped 08.14. Arrived 08.26. I should clarify that it takes about two weeks for us in Colorado. Naturally, if you live closer, it would be less but two weeks is a good rule of thumb.
