Re: 2014 diesel production

The only one you mentioned that is not just an appearance package, sadly is the SRT.

The Trailhawk is another appearance package with some offroad stuff thrown in to fool the public and employees.

Yes, that's right. I just called my Jeep an appearance package.

Ok.. But look at how many members have pm'd us asking if the TH2 is gonna have this-and-that, and will Jeep ever make a such and such GC... So if I were to take in all this demand from 'enthusiasts' and relay it back, then when an enthusiast-based trim gets launched, it would meet their expectations. AND it would make them feel like, "I had a part in this."

Obviously everyone won't see their desires make it to market, but why even try the whole niche thing and you don't even know what that market wants?

But forget all that.. That's not even my point. It's about engaging the ppl. Whatever it is. Whoever it is. Bring em in the loop. All the attempts so far have been poor... For the sake of Romney's argument, if "corporations as ppl," then having a real relationship with the ppl who spend their money (like we do) will sell more cars than any smooth talkin salesman ever will.

But I digress.. This is all off topic.

Re: 2014 diesel production

That's about as far as it ever would go, and even then would be a blessing for enthusiasts.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I can tell you this - Chevy, Marlin, Milous, and Scott (and quite a few more - Willx - and more I'm sure I am forgetting to mention) - you have all helped me keep my sanity during this process. It is really frustrating not knowing what is going on. Dealers telling you what you want to hear (often wrong), and VOTS being almost worthless (i.e.: in paint for 10 days, and I only got one e-mail during the whole process, and that was the first e-mail everyone got) It is really refreshing to get some inside information. It makes the buying process more personal, and it makes me feel more comfortable with my purchase knowing that there are people building my Jeep that are looking out for me. Again, I want to thank everyone working at JNAP for your help. You guys are awesome!!!

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just got my copy of the October 2013 issue of 4X4Australia. They have a review of the "new" Grand. They don't say it but it would have to be the MY14. It has the 8-speed box and an up rated VM Motori, 184kW and 570Nm up from 177kW and 550Nm and that is without urea. At the risk of opening up the injector debate, I quote,
"The 3.0-litre V6 diesel, now tweaked via the addition of piezo fuel injectors and claiming 184kW and 570Nm, delivers effortless even punchy performance combined with decent refinement".

There is also mention of a stretched 7 seater version of the Grand to come out in 2014. It is to be called the Grand Wankoneer Wagoneer.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Just talked to someone from the promotion group at Jeep that handles the customer cash coupons and she said she was unable to send any if us a new coupon. She did say that they are probably going to send out another round very soon so she told me to make sure we all sign up on jeep.com for updates for the diesel and the grand Cherokee in general. There is still a chance we might get these coupons in time for out deliveries if we are lucky!

It's coming. Just be patient. (But regarding VOTS/Paint... remember what I told you via PM)
