Any news friend?
Just reading over an advance copy of the September 1st WK2 press release documents... the diesel is clearly represented in the PR headlines and elsewhere. NO WHERE is it stated "Late Availability" - which in my opinion points to no further delays .

I sure hope your wrong about this.

It would be so depressing.

I might just go with the GAS burner with the lifetime extreme warranty.
I might be done with my waiting.
August 6th I'll make my decision unless I hear definitively sooner.

Re: 2014 diesel production

2014 CRD's are landing by the boatload and being delivered to happy owners in Australia - despite the 2014 model not having been officially launched here yet.
The engine is certainly available - well - a version of certainly.
Maybe they are running out the 2013 CRD engine in the new model for the export market - or just keeping the line warm while components become available in sufficient volume for your market.

I'm wondering if someone with their "inside sources" will ever be able to let us know what really caused the delays once the diesel does become available, assuming that it does.

I doubt it. We've been shut down a number of times for any info & many rumors have been floated about and denied. Corporate will probably give some political type BS answer if anything that won't really explain it.

One good thing about all the delays (I'm rationalizing here...) is that it has given me lots of time to explore other options and roll things around to make sure I'm comfortable with my decision of spending $50k. Bottom line, I keep coming back to the JGC diesel as the right vehicle for me. 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.

I second this... even regardless of the CRD which I still want... even including the issues other people have had. The JGC is absolutely the best fit for me. I get to drive lots of cars and not much impresses me the way this Jeep has.

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.
