Anyone received a 2015 Ecodiesel?

Ordered a 2015 GC Limited Ecodiesel from my local dealership this weekend, and supposedly it'll be delivered in 3-4 weeks.

Was curious if anyone owns a 2015 diesel model on the forum?

Just ordered a 2015 Overland. You seem to be lucky. My dealer said 6-8 weeks.

Either lucky or gullible.

I got a loan preapproval from a bank, and when I asked him whether I needed to extend it past 30 days, he said it was unnecessary... but I could extend it to 45 days just in case.

He said that he hot tagged my order, which seems to imply it'll come faster somehow.

Regardless, it's good to see that people have successfully placed orders at least.

They may have tagged it as a sold order meaning it'll get through production more quickly. Unsold orders (vehicles going into dealer stock) can be delayed at the factory more easily.

Re: Anyone received a 2015 Ecodiesel?

3-4 weeks seems a bit optimistic. Looks like production on the diesels won't even START until mid-October - "tentatively."

In order to manage expectations, I'm not getting my hopes up to see mine before Thanksgiving

Re: Anyone received a 2015 Ecodiesel?

From what I've been reading is the Ram Ecodiesel has been a runaway success and has really hampered the availability for the diesel engine for the Jeep (they limited and then closed down 2014 ordering early to satiate demand as they can't build the engines fast enough and have chosen to give Ram priority in production due to the demand). Reports are claiming that 25-30% of all Rams sold are with the Ecodiesel the past 3-4 months with a conquest of outside brand rate of 75% (that's a great # to conquest owners)! The Ram outsold the Silvy for the first time in 25-30 years 2 months ago and is up 33% for the year. It seems the US customer begging for a light duty pickup with an efficient diesel engine has put their $ where their mouth is.

In fact reviews and comparos are showing that EPA #s on gas trucks is worse but better with the diesel - where non-towing the Ram over the Ecoboost or v8 Chevy is 35% better MPG over normal driving with testers getting 30+ easily on highway - then those doing towing tests have shown that the delta is sometimes greater than 50% better mpg than the v8. Fleet buyers for trucks are noticing that their fuel bills are paying off the higher purchase price much sooner than expected and have better accuracy than EPA's lab mpg #s.

Re: Anyone received a 2015 Ecodiesel?

Thanks for the info, everyone.

When any of you get word that your vehicle is being manufactured, I'd love to hear about it. Suspect others would as well.

From what's been said, it appears as if no 2015 GC Ecodiesels have been manufactured yet.

Perhaps this is due to demand on the Ram side?

Sounds like there's also a number of needed fixes on the DEF system.

Perhaps they are tightening up that aspect of the engine for this next go around?

Hopeful, but doubtful

I suspect they are playing with the DEF dosing rates to find a better balance between keeping the injector cleared out and usage. Also, I suspect they are trying to understand and control the quality of the Catalytic Converters. The failure rate on 2014's was above average. With the number of Ecodiesels growing, they can't afford not to. I expect to see improvements.

I hope you're right, but their fix for the vulnerable hardware (a few zip-ties) seems a half-measure at best.

I know they read these boards and there are engineers employed at Chrysler/Jeep who agree with our complaints and want to fix it but the bean counters want to be as cheap as possible as they only look at the short term (they simply don't understand what a happy customer can do for their image and sales). OTOH as I look at what such good value the Ecodiesel is compared to its competitors such as the Toureg TDI, X5d, Bluetec, Cayenne diesel I'll spend $250 of my own to fix this issue. Mine is even a lease but I want to make sure if I hit a puddle while on a long trip I don't break the injector and have to stop my vacation in order to get it fixed (with who knows how long a repair time).
