Re: when are they being shipped to dealers

I sat in a Cherokee this morning while my Grand was in for service. They offered to let me drive it, but it was raining pretty hard and I didn't want to be driving an unfamiliar vehicle.

The thing I wanted to check was the driver's leg room, since that was one of the reasons I got rid of my Liberty. The manual seat went back further than I needed. It did have more of a feel of sitting in a car than an SUV, but was comfortable.

It looks really nice.

The sales manager was saying that he thinks they will be able to sell all they can get.

Re: when are they being shipped to dealers

I think the sale manger was right - this should be a hot car. Today I left a meeting and decided to have a look at a nearby Jeep dealer (no my dealer) and low and behold they had a white Limited. It was FWD and had few options on it. I took 3 photos with my iPad and showed my wife what her car will look like. I have to say, VERY nice. If she doesn't like it then she'd better be prepared to start driving a van again (our T&C) and I'll gladly take the Cherokee.

I hope it turns out to be as solid as it looks.

Still waiting for the "in transit" to arrive.

We went through the same thing with the 2014 Grand Cherokee. There are presently around 400 in transit to the NYC area. Next thing you know you'll be tripping over them.

Just enjoy it when you get behind the wheel.

Re: when are they being shipped to dealers

Plenty of rail capacity, not so much truck capacity.

My GC sat for 1 week, 1 hour away.

Re: when are they being shipped to dealers

Good review published yesterday. Read it here: Quick Spin: 2014 Jeep Cherokee | Fox News

Now if only I could find one to drive to review for myself.
