Re: 2014 diesel production

I had emailed Milous telling him I was told July for ordering. Then this came thru, if only corporate could get on the same page.
 
Jeep Fact #153
All new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel
The 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel is currently planned to arrive in showrooms in October 2013. Customers will still see a "Late Availability" message in marketing materials until that time.
Dealer ordering and allocation details will be communicated closer to production start.

I'm tired of waiting and being jerked around by Jeep. I'm going to go drive the GLK250 BlueTec as well as a Q5 which they just announced TDI pricing for. Both get better milage than the GC. I really don't need the towing capacity or the off-road capability of the GC, so they may fit the bill just fine.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Like I said before, ordering for the CRD will be in August, with production in September, and hitting the showroom floors in October.

Guess you missed the July ordering post.

Actually you never did clear up if you actually knew the person you spoke to at Chrysler or not. I am interested why he would have better info than the people who work in production?

Interesting about the Audi Q5 TDI. Didn't know the Chevy Colorado had a diesel planned too.

Is it possible they are waiting for enough of the 2013 dealer stock to be sold prior to release of the CRD. My local dealer has a couple of 2014's, but only displays the 2013 on the floor. I wonder if corporate side of things got so much flak from dealers complaining about this "early" release that they agreed to keep pushing back the second coming (CRD release) until current dealer stock numbers were diminished. I don't think there are any true hold ups, thus the lack of a good explanation on this fiasco. Funny, sounds very similar to fiat...

Re: 2014 diesel production

Wow. Early August and in the showrooms in Oct. Talk about setting this thing up for failure! Fall/winter is when diesel starts to get more expensive than gasoline. The model year will be seen as on its second half. And there will be at least 2 or 3 other compelling diesel options available. I'm so glad I didn't wait and I feel for you guys that did - but at least we have an answer.
