Re: 2014 diesel production

Yeah, I got my VOTS "Your new vehicle is beginning to build" email this morning though mine is sitting in the coffee yard waiting to be either reinspected or shipped...hopefully they include the dozen donuts and not just the leftover crumbs

Very true. I'm not sure which is worse. You waiting on your Jeep to ship or the rest is us waiting on ours to be built. Probably yours to ship as it's ready to be driven.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Got my second email from Jeep, saying my build has been scheduled... Does that mean I'm about to be DA ONE?

Been waiting for this thing for almost 2 years. So close now . Hopefully it doesn't have to sit in "the yard" for too long and we all get shipped!
Goes to show you how far behind VOTS is. MOTS knows, I just give the updates before the posting.

I have to say I am happy mine was built before Fiat makes changes to a great engine. My guess is they are going to try to reduce costs on production - and that is not always a good thing if it means lower quality.

No, you have it backwards,

Fiat was always in the forefront of production on the Diesels. Really this just kills all hope that the GM people will see a Diesel in their 1/2 tons any time soon. Unless of course GM is going to buy the engines from Fiat.

Personally, this is the best thing that could happen, it means a long term global commitment to this Power Plant!

I hear that GM is working on a small diesel, Isuzu maybe, for their full size van and a new CUV. I haven't heard anything about a diesel for their full size trucks. They had a diesel done and ready to go (in the fill size truck) before the Obama and cash for clunker era.
