MY2016 isn't launching until the December timeframe (approx) if I remember correctly.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Would the back ordered cat be coming overseas from vm or is this a Chrysler part? Trying to understand how this has been backordred for so long now.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Anatomy of a crisis. Chrysler started making the diesel JGC and ram mid to late last year. Soon people reported problems with the emissions system that is traced to a bad cat design. So they rush a new design into production, but they have tens of thousands of vehicles with this problem sitting in repair bays across the country and very angry owners who've been waiting over a month for a new cat. First priority is the existing owners. They're costing money in rentals and lemon laws. Second priority is the orders since they get the money as soon as they're built. I suspect the flood gates open late this month or early next. Then they'll start making showroom models, etc.

Here's a factory video.

Takes ten hours to build and they make 1500 a day. Wow you'd think they could squeeze in a red diesel like tomorrow 😃

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Anyone get any promising news this week on the diesels building again? Wish we could get some idea on when they'll start.

Re: 2015 Deliveries?

Maybe they have a lottery system going on here. I also seen some (2) sitting on the dealer lot in placenta Ca. One 2x the other has 4x. I might be trading in my 14 for that 4x silver overland.

Just got the call from the dealer, though I'm skeptical, my vehicle has a scheduled build date of March 31st and that my "Hot Tag" request was accepted. WOOOT!

Great news, and you're going to love the color combo - it's the same as I just received.
