Re: 2014 diesel production

Has anyone gone to a dealership today to confirm if ordering is now available?

Re: 2014 diesel production

Called the sales manager at my dealer. He looked it up in the system and still not able to order the CRD. He said he's hoping for the beginning of July.

Re: 2014 diesel production

10-4, looks like a combined roll-out with RAM trucks now.

Re: 2014 diesel production

This should be fun watching allllll of those dealers that gave me the green light back peddle. I expect nothing less entertaining than something akin to a cat trying to backup.

Though I could be wrong, I doubt this. It would be extremely bad PR considering what has been communicated to dealers and the public up to this point.

Anyone see the 500 media reviews of the Diesel RAMs posted everywhere and in print.... nope.

Getting pretty close to nasty actually, spoke to a customer today who bought the Touareg specifically in spite of Jeep because he said the advertising drove him to the diesel and then immediately to a competitor because the dealer had no information on this ghost vehicle.

We are the fanatics, I get that but the general public who are interested based on the big time EcoDiesel advertising do seem to be driven to the other diesel options in the market.

I think it is interesting that Chrysler has spent huge money on the advertising and making Diesels for the Media but after a solid 3 months of people reading and watching people are going to other products.

I also realize that this is not a volume project for Chrysler at the moment but they are certainly loosing confidence in customers who we can't explain why there are these vehicles everywhere but no one has any clue when they will be able to order one.

Sad really.

Re: 2014 diesel production

My dealer said "pushed back another month" again today ... This is the fourth time he's had to say this to me

How's he like the Touareg? Need a plan B here lol. Having trouble justifying price of the Touareg - extra $4000 vs loaded Limited I think.

We had a conference call this morning about the new packages for all brands. Not a single word about the diesel. I did find out the Cherokee will be in showrooms 3rd quarter and we get the new 200 in February.

Thanks Pat.... where there any hints that RAM diesel was to be launched at the same time.

I don't understand the games on the diesel though. Why don't they just say what the Fing problem is. I get there are problems but just sad that there is no reason why every member of every media organization on the planet has driven one but the customer gets told they don't build those yet.

Any word on the Ram diesel? I still contend that at this point, chrysler does the Ram first.
