Re: 2014 diesel production

I called my dealer today because I am on the fence to cancel as I need a vehicle ASAP. His actual serious response was "the hold up was due to GM because they have 50% in the company that makes the engine." He is now really swaying me to cancel if he is that far out of his mind. It was the VP of the dealership not just a salesman

Does anyone know???????????????
I believe the video said overlands can be trail rated, not summits.

Re: 2014 diesel production

The front fascia of the Summit has no holes for the tow hooks. All other Trail Rated options can be ordered, but not from the factory (Skid Plates and 18 inch wheels). Hope this helps. I am only adding the skid plates.

You're right it is an overland and not a Summit. Thanks much. I wonder why not the Summit it seems to have all of the same capabilities? I guess I can always buy the badge and put it on there. LOL I know my 06 5.7 Hemi has it on there.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Well they're going to time this release just right for a bunch of CRD's to build up on the lots. Other then initial group that wants a diesel, who else is going to pay extra for 30% better fuel economy when diesel is almost 30% higher at the pump right now? Just got gas today and it was $2.99 and looked at diesel and it was $3.79 here in the midwest. Maybe this was their plan so they'd have a glut next summer when gas spikes due to whatever refinery excuse they come up with this year.

All the keys (fobs) are left in the vehicles.

My name Benit, and I ain't in it!

What you guys do when the tour is over is between you, Chrysler, and the Detroit police!

There is the problem....they locked all the keys in the cars. The locksmith has 1700 vehicles to get in.

Nope. As long as that new batch of hot glue arrives for the engine mounts all is ok.
