Well, Chevy was saying they were belting out 600 rigs per shift in Sept... so... uhh... 2 shifts was the production run (so far).

3 shifts per day (right?), thusly, CRD for NAFTA would seem to be a pretty small percentage of overall production.

I agree. Just reacting to JRM1504. Back to you guys chasing the unicorns, and me checking I-5 for my vehicle carrier.

Brad.... Join us in the obsession, the best part is about to begin (and if it begins Friday we will never hear the end of it from Shannon so the more the better).

Just got to see YFD watch his SRT unloaded at the dealership because he watched it all the way there.

Just backing up my assertion. I'm not fond of politicians, can you tell?

So to knit it back to the topic at hand...

So yesterday I was in Seattle, which I consider/infer from others, to be one of the "greener" large cities in the US. I was amazed at how many Jetta TDIs I saw versus Prius's. I think there were more TDIs. To take it a step further, the number of TDI/CDI SUVs versus hybrids wasn't even close. Even here in eastern Wa, I have seen a lot of Merc diesels. I know for awhile, buyers of hybrids got a tax rebate. Diesels I don't believe qualified. I think the Jeep diesel will be more popular than expected. I think the Ram diesel will be extremely popular, where the Chevy hybrid was a complete flop (not sure it even got off the ground).

The CRD looks like it might have attraction to two market segments. Greenies, and those that are into torque and POWAH (said like Jeremy Clarkson). I am more of the latter.

However, I am tickled to go 600+ miles on a tank. I detest making pit stops....that is time I'll never get back. Being a driver of a durmax since 2006, I love being able to push the pedal and GO. Wife has a Buick Enclave, and while nice and plush and smooth, it just doesn't have the same POWAH as my pickup when I want to get up and go. My brother is watching my experience closely. His wife is quite green, but he is into POWAH. He says they need a new family car. He looks at the new diesels and sees "green and environmentally friendly" wink wink nudge nudge.

Hopefully, only another month to go...darn west coast. My delivery date according to MOTS is 10/11. If it left today, I dont think it would make it...unless it goes FedEx.

Anything less than a month, and I'll be tickled, but a month is what I'm thinking, yet I'm still here daily to check for new news.

Re: 2014 diesel production

So...I just called 1877IAMJEEP, and supposedly my 2014 Summit 4x4 CRD is in KZ! She mentioned it first, and I confirmed three times that is in KZ status and she said yes.

Not that I am getting too excited but here is hoping she is right!

So one small addition.... anyone notice Canada is 20% of the diesels vs 1 percent of the population.

Hopefully they write lots of reviews to support the cause!

Normally we wouldn't run tracking BUT, if you would like to PM me the last 8 of your VIN I am interested in looking at this... I just took a look at the "entire" list and I don't see one...

Thank you,

I just called to see if there was any change on mine, and I got the "It has been selected for the 100% rigorous testing" speech. It has been in testing (or paint) for over a month. I figure it took at least 2 weeks for them to break the paint seal just to open the doors. I know it is just sitting there, but now that it is Q4, I am wondering why they are not releasing them.
