Interesting...very interesting. Then everyone has been lying about everything. I gotta run, I'm off to go buy a FORD, KIA, SUBARU, RANGE ROVER, BMW, MERCEDES, CHEVY, JAGUAR, or a BENTLEY. I'll post my pics of my new vehicle soon.

Well, Sergio got what he wanted. As soon as you post a picture of your new car, the CRD Grand Cherokees will start rolling off the line.

Re: 2014 diesel production

I wish I knew what the real answer was... I know it's only June..and I won't need a vehicle until February...but I was hoping you guys would have a few out on the roads and trails, working the bugs out before I plopped down order moneys...

Re: 2014 diesel production

That's what happens when a carpet bagger takes money from Chrysler to prop up Fiat. Theives have to lie, otherwise they go to jail. You ever met an honest thief?

Hey everyone, guess what I just bought instead of waiting for the JEEP diesel.

You know if the fix which we likely won't actually find out has something to do with improving the product then there will be advantages too. None of this changes what the vehicle will be and that is what I struggle with. I could go out and buy a fully loaded RAM, spend way less money but I probably will still kick myself when it comes out.

There is an identical Summit with the Brown interior coming to a dealer who is a client of mine and he is going to let me try my trailer out with it.... I have a feeling once I have driven it I will never be able to go back, I will either buy the HEMI Demo he has coming or will wait for the CRD. About two days after I get whatever I get, the delays won't matter any more.

I am sure anyone who has had their build delayed will say the same, after you got it, delays didn't matter any more and that will be true with the CRD.

I was just as mad but nothing really truly is as good as the Jeep and that is coming from a Mercedes driver

Re: 2014 diesel production

As much as I think we all hope the delay ultimately would lead to a better product, judging by all the false starts, mixed communications, and marketing going back months now, I don't think this delay is anything material with the vehicle itself. Judging by how uncertain it is, it has to be a legal issue of some sort. Either bureaucratic or some sort of corporate c@(kblock keeping in mind GM owns half of VM Motori. Who knows if we will ever know...

Actually the entire truth will not become available. You are correct though it is not just a hardware fix it is more complicated but it is not EPA holding the entire train up here.

That's a no..it is a Dartz (Russian? vehicle). While they are kinda cool looking and such they are crazy expensive with ridiculous options.

DARTZ MOTORZ - From a ROYAL COACH HOUSE to the HOLLYWOOD SKY DARTZ is always the BRIGHTEST STAR


On another note...I have been interested in the CRD since they were announced (officially?) and then in March when all the test drive articles started to be published I made up my mind. While I don't exactly need a new vehicle I very much so want one(before the snow if possible) and this is all kind of discouraging following all the hype.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Other rumors I have heard about the diesel ... Just throwing them out there from a pretty reputable source.

- low inventory of 8 speed transmissions for the diesel (SRT)
- in addition, may be a limited inventory of petrol V-6 engines as well coming soon (how would you like to sell in that climate ... No diesel, limited V-6 engines ... having to push HEMIs)
- source said he would be surprised to see the diesel out this year at this point in time (just his opinion) he's "not holding his breath"

Just throwing it out there, if you think it is something wrong with the truck, you are kidding yourself. We are about to take delivery in Australia of diesels. Mine will be here in a month, in other words its already on the boat and half way across the Pacific Ocean.

They just put out the specifications, no 0-100km times but it has 184kw @ 4000rpm and 570NM @ 2000rpm of torque. That is 250hp and 420 foot pounds. She will haul this baby

Don't worry, all the Aussies will come and brag here to tell you how good the diesel is with the 8 speed
