Re: 2015 Ecodiesel Production - Milous?

I've been on the fence for a few months whether to go hemi or diesel. Here in Canada there is a $2000 green levy on the 2015 hemi engine so going diesel isn't much more money. But due to these issues i read on here it makes me wonder what to do.

Going to check out an explorer sport again as an option while the diesel is on hold. I really like the refinement of the jeep but the explorer v6 turbo balances the power and mileage better than the hemi it would seem plus its a lighter vehicle.

I looked real hard at the Toyota and the MDX...just couldn't see it. Neither looks that great to me (although mechanically far fewer issues)...and I really do not like small gas tanks.

I cross shopped the 4Runner and was pretty impressed with it. It would have been a toss up between the 4R and JGC. I ended up with an ML350 Bluetec which I wasn't even considering because I too thought they were too expensive, but in the end the difference wasn't that great. For 2015 Mercedes is switching to a 4 cyl diesel in the ML and lowering the price so that might be worth a look.

There are a LOT of 2014 JGC Limited diesels out there on Cars.com and Auto Trader. New as well as slightly used. Since the Limited didn't change much you might find something close to what you have on order. Maybe even step up to a Overland for the same $ as the 2015.

Shopped and did 2hr road test the MB ML, VW TDI, and JGC gas V6., before deciding on JGC Summit diesel. MB ML is the closest to the JGC diesel but pricy and has less content. VW TDI is the closest competitor to the JGC Limited Diesel. C&D road test of all 4 (including Porsche) had the VW as the best compromise between them all. Each of the others exceeded it in a few areas, but lacked in others. For me the JGC diesel hit the nail on the head. Just hate all this waiting.

Re: 2015 Ecodiesel Production - Milous?

Well there you go! Our shopping expedition today, while enlightening, only served to convince us we still want a Grand Cherokee. We were pleasantly surprised to see D1 and a projected delivery date before Thanksgiving (!!!) when we got back home. It will be fantastic if that date holds.

The only drawback is we were telling family we weren't coming home for Thanksgiving unless our new car arrived by then Now we gotta go see in-laws. On the plus side, ROAD TRIP!

Same here. Had a temporary lapse in judgement considering some others in its category and then checked out a GC with the color scheme i want.

Now its about seeing what the November promos are and based o that hopefully putting one on order....while being optimistic that a few bugs are sorted out by the time i get one.
