Re: 2015 ecodiesel order/availability ?

Purchased a 2014 GC limited eco diesel yesterday, sales manager was telling us the orders are on hold, due to engine shortages. He mentioned US gets 60k engines a year, and they are being used in the new van, ram and GC..

Execept that the van uses a I4 EcoDiesel and not the V6. The V6 EcoDiesel is only shared by the Ram and the GC. Typical salesman stupidity/inaccuracy.

Re: 2015 ecodiesel order/availability ?

Here's what I can tell you. I ordered a 2015 Overland Diesel on June 17th. By the end of the day the unit status was D1 gateline with a ship date of 7-25-14. I was assigned a VIN and a VON number at the time. On July 17th my status went backwards to D. My sales person has been trying to get a hold of the district manager since then to find out what was going on. I was to the point of saying screw it, cancel the order and I'll just find one that is "close enough" to what I want sitting on a dealer lot. I was about to put a down payment on one and I got a call from my sales person saying that the district manager finally called back. As of this morning I am back to D1 status with a scheduled build start date of this friday 7-25-14. Supposedly he red flagged the vechicle to ship right away when complete and it should arrive the second week of August. I was also told that you can not place orders for them right now. So, it sounds like your order will be taken care of if it was in before they cut it off and those will be built starting this week.

Shipping takes way longer than you expect - as the new vehicles can sit for weeks in parking lots waiting for trains / trucks to move them. That is a reason why they ship with DEF tanks half full (sitting in hot weather can deteriorate the DEF).

2015 ecodiesel order/availability ?

Hey Guys! Quick back story real quick on my JGC 2015 order situation.

I've been in the market for a diesel GC since January, did a ton of research and haggling hard with the dealer. Decided on a Granite crystal limited, with all the goodies. Placed a deposit, it was being shipped in from southern California (I'm in the SF Bay Area).

A week or two after placing the order, my sales guy (who's very cool and had not led me to believe he's a weirdo or dishonest sales guy) says hey, we can order you a 2015 GC, this was on

June 24 allocated the order and received by Jeep.

July 7th full VIN was assigned it was in "D" status.

Yesterday I read this forum and saw the above posts.

Today my sales guy called and said that they're not allocating or building any 2015s for 5 months. Plus the 4 week-ish build time. A bummer, but what are you going to do.

He's offering to find me a Granite Crystal 2014 diesel with my exact specs (none are in CA so it would be a $500 transportation fee, which I can negotiate to waive) but now I can't decide on what to do. I don't "need" it right now but I was looking forward to it.

So, I'm looking for some advice and seeing what you guys think. Also, any idea what will be new on the 2015s?

Thanks fellas!

Chris

Re: 2015 ecodiesel order/availability ?

I would suggest that Milous is more informed than your dealer or other comments here...

I have not heard about the delay you speak of.

Also spoke to my dealer who confirmed delays, but couldn't say when orders would be accepted again. It'd be great to have someone with more inside knowledge comment on the situation instead of relying on dealers WAG's.

Was about to pull the trigger on a new 2015 EcoDiesel, but I'd need the car before mid October, so might have to go with the Hemi instead...

For good reason.... I confirmed they cannot be ordered at the moment but there is usually information which at the moment is missing.

Re: 2015 ecodiesel order/availability ?

I ordered January 16 2013 and received it November 1st 2013.

It was worth the wait but that is my opinion.
