Re: 2014 diesel production

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to drive my diesel
To the sea
Drive my diesel
Let my Cherokee carry me
I want to drive my diesel
Till I'm free
Oh, Lord, through the revolution

Feed the oil tank
Only once every 700 miles
Swap the tires
With off-roaders and a smile
Hose the mud
Off in the street
Oh, oh, there's a solution

I want to drive my diesel
To the sea
Drive my diesel
Let my Cherokee carry me
I want to drive my diesel
Till I'm free
Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

I want to drive my diesel
To the sea
Drive my diesel
Let my Cherokee carry me
I want to drive my diesel
Till I'm free
Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin'
Into the future

Re: 2014 diesel production

So will this thing actually be orderable on the 6th or the 9th, whatever it is?

Re: 2014 diesel production

I'm waiting to put the Brute on ice until I actually get to place my order INTO the system.

Jeep has this history of the day of changing it on us...

Ive been trying to justify the cost of the diesel and its trimmings. I will more than likely never really tow anything. I am having an issue with the fact that I want it, even though it has little practical value in my situation (I think). Thoughts?

Re: 2014 diesel production

I know its hard to say, but do you guys think the new diesel will be offered with Friends & Family Program Discount? My Dad retired from there and I can get an EP code... I know there are times you can't use with certain vehicles.

My fingers are crossed... 1 week!

I think it will be difficult at best to justify the diesel on fuel cost savings. For those that tow or off-road, those are good reasons to get the diesel. I don't really need it for any of those things, I just want the diesel. I usually keep my cars for at least 10 years, so when you amortize the extra up front cost over that time frame its only $400 or $500 extra a year and the diesels usually have a higher resale value. That isn't much to get the vehicle you really want and avoid the "I wish I had gotten the diesel" remorse later. My wife has a Jetta TDI and that has really sold me on the clean diesel technology. You can also feel a little better knowing you're helping the environment with lower emissions. That's my rationale and I'm sticking to it.... :-)

The diesel will likely be worth more than its gas counter parts down the line. The gas cost (vs the v6) may just break even, depending on how long you own it. The real question is, is it worth the smile each time you drop the hammer and it just gets up and goes? Go drive a Toureg or GLK diesel to get an idea.

Several dealerships have confirmed they believe I can use the affiliate rewards code on the diesel.
