So hopefully when the CRD becomes available I'll be able to walk into the dealer and plop my money on the table with no second thoughts and knowing this is exactly what I want.
For me, I have no choice. I need a vehicle to tow behind a motorhome, that gets good mileage. Through research, I have fallen in love with the JGC. So I am moving to an awesome vehicle to tow behind my motorhome. I will force myself to let go of the good mileage thing.
If the diesel isn't ready, I'm going with the HEMI®, the best available
of the tow behinds.
My salesmen also has heard
the JGC CRD USA model will be indefinitely delayed, into next year. He was waiting to tell me until he heard something definitive. This is still a rumor.
I'm feeling if this is true, we will hear something concrete in the next week. This would permanently eliminate a Jeep Oil Burner in my future and stop a trend of diesel vehicles in my life. The Jeep CRD would have been my 5th diesel vehicle(this started with a diesel tractor).
The good news is I may be ordering a new HEMI® next week. I'm moving quickly to change my disappointment to enthusiasm. The thing now is I could have ordered this in February. That pisses me off.
