Re: 2014 diesel production

Yep... Searching the EPA under the Dodge, Chrysler or Jeep brands with the term "3.0" come up with zero hits... leave out the 3.0 though..every other 2014 engine and it's compliance data is there.

Maybe all the marketing is to get us to think "this company must be competent...look...shiny commercial!" When in actuality...they suck at releasing new product.

I heard that again yesterday though I don't know how old that news is.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I said it on May 6 in the 'ordering' thread and still stand behind it.

Personally I think they are not going to offer a '14 CRD in the '13 calendar year. I think it's 50% marketing to get a lot of press about the truck early, and 50% avoiding having to support the power-train at the dealership service department level until closer to when the Ram 1500 will be out with this engine.

They just don't want to provide training and support at the dealership level yet.

Sad to say it, but you're still wrong.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Does anyone have a link to the article where Jeep said they would start production of the diesel "in a few weeks"?

I want to give Jeep my money....

I want to keep people in JNAP working !

So, I'm not buying anything else...yet.

But I really really want to know what the real hold up is...especially in this age of information. Knowledge is not only power, it's comfort...
