You know, a lot of the country who are ignorant to diesels are gonna start looking at them now bc of the premium brands advertising. Ironically, I think that new Audi ad with the ppl screaming at the lady picking up the diesel nozzle, is gonna do A LOT for the Jeep's sales, bc it sparks an interest in diesel with those who wouldn't otherwise consider it. It's like they're validating Diesel engines as worth the extra money, and so it'll be easier for salesmen to upsell our stuff as the culture surrounding em changes.

W2K.1573's got the earliest delivery date.....today. I'm thinking it won't make it....

I planned a week long business trip 10 days after my estimated delivery. I hope it arrives before then.

If I had a dollar for every time someone walked up to me with my Mercedes ML Bluetec to warn me that I was at the diesel pump, my Jeep would be free.

All you Jeep Diesel drivers are also going to be living breathing ads for the new diesels as well.

After about the 5th time, you will all start to think of great responses to this situation too... . OH MY GOD this pump that say DIESEL has DIESEL fuel coming out of the nozzle what am I going to do help me please! Is my car going to explode?



Edit: mind you the EcoDiesel badge may help. No one knew what Bluetec meant.

I am going to go out on a limb here and probably catch crap for it but seeing as Chevy has shared such good info I don't think this is too bad.

The dates for the "shipments" that I had seen for some of the earlier completed diesels are "different" than the ones that were building in the last 24 hours or so..... some info was "missing" on those original builds that showed for someone like Chivvalry. Now as usual Chiv's info updated the day after but if you add in the approximate 2 days delay that happened a little while back there is a pattern.

In other words I think Chevy's over under bet is not only dead on but might even be short of that

Now that is speculation but based on some factual information.

My original delivery date was 9/18... now estimated at 9/22.

I guess I could say that I am pretty confident that your delivery date is pretty close to actual.

Re: 2014 diesel production

For those that haven't seen it, here is the new Audi TDI commercial. I wonder if Jeep will come up with some clever diesel ads??

Here's another really clever Audi ad. If Jeeps wants to sell diesels, they should start running stuff like this...

I just googled and watched that. It is a great ad. Jeep needs to do some ads emphasizing the mileage and sportiness of the drive though. That Audi one is hilarious but I think Jeep has a long ways to go in educating customers on the performance and efficiency of Diesel.... not that I don't want to see humour because they NEED that so people will talk about it.

My delivery date WAS 9/6. My gut feeling is they will start shipping on Tuesday. The $500 summer discount expires on Monday. Since Marlon said there were 12000 on order, that means by delaying till tuesday, they will save 6 million dollars.

Though your math is good, there are not 12,000 Jeeps sitting in Charlievoix.

Just make sure you keep you eyes peeled for any other targeted marketing while yours is on the railroad.
