I've heard that at the very least they're going to start manufacturing them at a new ZF plant in the US. How much Influence FC will have at that plant is unknown. Currently the 8HP70's in our Jeeps are made at the ZF plant in Germany.

Fiat sold its interest in VM Motori already?

Fiat Taking Full Control of VM Motori Diesel Joint Venture

That thing is used in Maserati as well as a Banks version of the HummVee...

Now that Fiat had their hands on VM, they are sure to add their influence, and I wanted the VM before Fiat finds ways to cut production costs - not sure what that will do to the quality.

Re: 2015 ecodiesel order/availability ?

My salesman just told us that the 2015 Grand Cherokee diesel ordering has been closed permanently and existing orders will be cancelled. Not sure if he is just trying to cover up not getting mine ordered when ordering first opened or if this is true. Anyone else heard similar news?

I would have expected Milous to post it first in the 2015 thread. Does your dealer happen to have a '14 diesel sitting there that he's trying to move? That may be why he said that.

No, they have 2 Overland diesels, but he knows I want a Summit. I went ahead and ordered a 2015 JGC Summit Hemi 4x4 yesterday, white with sienna interior. Can hardly wait!

I am hearing that there is a few month delay for ordering the diesels. Seems like last year all over again. Hopefully you will be able to order by October.

Re: 2015 ecodiesel order/availability ?

I'm trying to order a 2015 Summit Diesel, and I was just told the same thing this morning. Sales manager is on the phone with their rep trying to get more details now.

EDIT: Definitely not available to order right now. Will possibly be available for dealers to order when the next allocation opens in August, but the rep wasn't sure.

This really sucks. I wouldn't care if it just delayed the delivery by a couple months. But to not even be able to get my order in the queue is maddening. I guess I'll be waiting.

Right now, the EcoDiesel RAM pickup is selling like hotcakes, and my guess is all the engines are being allocated for the pick ups. My Guess is an October Jeep release.

Re: 2015 ecodiesel order/availability ?

My dealer indicated the same. October / November release. Changes are minimal so I found a 2014 Summit EcoDiesel that had everything I wanted... I can add lighted door sill plates. Really, I can
