Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Just contacted the dealership today.
My factory order on GC overland diesel.
He sent me POC in PDF format.
It states that the order was received at 11-03-2014
Status is D1.
Estimated Ship Date:12-02-2014
Date printed:11-20-2014
It does have VON and VIN number.

I am not sure what D1 means. It says that" the plant has sequenced the unit for production, estimated ship date assigned"

I am not sure that how much you can rely on estimated shipment date.
Thanks

The VW executive I test drove was $65k almost $8 more than my fully loaded Overland.

You cannot get remote start on the VW either.

Can't get remote start on any EU car. The VW does not have a actual transfer case, just a selector for "on road" or "off-road"(think Subaru). Seats are "leather-ette" as opposed to real leather in Jeep. VW is definitely more sports car-ish. I looked at one as the only alternative to the GC - the least expensive Touareg was still $10k more than a equally equipped Limited, and the Jeep had a real transfer case/real 4x4.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Finally got my VIN from the dealer. It's apparently built and waiting to ship (9/12 order), though I'm waiting on more detail/confirmation from Milous' tracking.

Don't get a '14...the '15 has quite a bit more features ACC, lane assist, etc.

My 2015 GC Summit has cooled seats, lane assist, and ACC. These features are not available on the 2015?

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Olivia, my Jeep was Ordered Oct 14 and is Gatelined scheduled which is one step after yours. But it's stalled because there is issues with Government paperwork on the Diesel engines. Everybody is back logged. Also looming is a shutdown for 3 weeks starting Dec 22 to update the paint shop. Only a few colors are being build. I think it's white, black, grey and one other simple color. So I'm hoping with mine being White that It will get built before the shutdown. Chrysler could not tell me if that would happen. They told me to check back in Mid December. Not good news. Keep us up to date with your progress. Mike

I do not believe the VW has cooled seats but does have lane assist and one other nice feature...stop start. Contrary to a post above...VW does have a very nice leather option. The fit and finish is impressive.

My wife LOVES her cell phone remote start on our 2014 when it's 0 F and she's getting off at 10 PM from the hospital. That includes the heated seats and steering wheel.

Me? Meh…I'm not a big heated steering wheel kinda guy. Heated seats in my Rubicon are nice when I'm coming home from skiing though.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

My impression of driving the VW touereg Excutive was it was more car like and fragile. To me my Overland seems more truck like and like having a true transfer case. I just do not like all this emissions equipment. I had a 02 Chevy 2500 Silverado diesel before.

I hear ya...why I ordered a JGC and not a Touareg. Two things concerning me at this point...delivery timelines and JGC reliability (DEF, SCR, Tranny issues, smoke in cockpit, etc). It is always difficult sifting through aberrations which can get emphasized on the internet and real world problems. The delay is giving me time to sort through it.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

I spoke with my dealer yesterday and he has not heard anything about the shut down to update the paint system. Called Jeep customer service and they said the diesels are being produced but no new orders for colors other than the black, white and silver will be accepted until Jan 12 2015
