While it is true that corporate only emailed us twice about the diesel, our reps, our BC supply chain managers and even folks at CTC have told us yes every month in the past.

I pass along info that is given to me by corporate. I, like you expect it to be right. You seem to be "in the know" on alot of things, that's great and this forum can use someone that might have different info than those that made this forum what it is.

As for dealers giving wrong info, maybe you should point the finger at corporate.

Totally agree. Don't shoot the messengers, they're just passing along what they hear. If they didn't say anything, people would be complaining they don't communicate at all. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I'm sure there are examples of dealers making something up - I've heard some crazy stuff from a couple dealers, but most of them seem to be just as frustrated with the back and forth as we are.

Re: 2014 diesel production

lol I had been watching youtube reviews about the diesel and I could configure it on their site so I made an assumption that I could actually buy the car. I wander down to my local Jeep dealer, the fellow comes out and says "Interested in a Grand Cherokee?" I say I am and inquire as to where a diesel example might be hiding. He actually did a facepalm. Not metaphorically, the physical act. Clearly the question had been asked before....

I wish you got that on video. I would have loved to see that posted on the Jeep or Chrysler Facebook Page

The mere fact you witnessed that is just awesome!

That's awesome.

The frustration all around about the diesel is thick. I've been seeing that damned Chevy Cruze Diesel commercial as well... the fine print says something like "Limited availability in select markets only". WTF? GREAT BIG middle finger from me toward the TV every time I see it.

WHERE'S MY G-DAMN DIESEL!?!?!?!?! NOW DAMN IT!! NOW!!!!

Okay, rant over... back to diesel hibernation mode...

Re: 2014 diesel production

I reccently purchased a WK2 diesel GC with the 3.0 litre turbo MV Motori engine. They have been fitted to export GC's since the 2011 introduction of the WK2 in Australia.

The engine is quiet, fuel efficient and quick. Faster to 100km/h (60 m/h) then the 5.7 litre hemi.

Buddy, you are just rubbing it in for us right now. We only wish we could buy them!

Oh and Welcome to JeepGarage!

I am right there with you. I'm a little less vocal, but use the middle finger everytime I see a Jeep commercial zooming in on the EcoDiesel logo, but I'm there.
