Hi, Don't know what area you are in but Cricks Noosa Qld Jeep Dealers had one coming in August, might pay to check with them. I think the dealers can swap cars around if someone has what you want. We ordered from another dealer, Cherry Red Trailhawk, Tech Pack, Convenience Pack.
Ordered in late July, now built and on a train between the factory at Toledo Ohio and the port at Curtis Bay Baltimore. Delivery about 8th Nov, Brisbane port.
No problem doing an order.

That sounds like bullshit to me about being unable to do factory orders! My dealer ordered for me a Deep Cherry Red Trailhawk, with every available option (the same as what you want, I believe), in early August, with an estimated delivery date of 5th December.

Re: Australian MY14 KL Cherokee thread

We ordered our Deep Cherry Red Limited with Tech/Convenience/Luxury in late July, expecting it to be here within 2 months as it was already a purchased vehicle and on the boat - and the timeframes are about right so far.

We actually wanted the car minus Luxury, but considering to get it in as a factory order, I think it would have been an October delivery if we had it built there - and then more time on the boat (which accords with a December delivery timeframe).

I don't think the Luxury Group (ventilated perforated Nappa leather front seats) is available on the Trailhawk?

You may be right two dogs, I'll have to dig up the brochure and have a look. I didn't look for it on mine because with remote start and aircon I can cool the car before I get in....but my seats are a solid leather which is actually quite supple. I'm impressed with the leather actually.
The Korean leather on my last car cracked after 4 years and was stiffer although it was ventilated with holes (no fan).

Car due in Brisbane 8th Nov, don't know how long it will take to be delivered after this.
G'Day Brucenjul. I see that you have 2014 3.2 KL under your name, but you ordered on 21 July. So are you actually getting a 2015 model or the 2014 model?

Cheers,

Marty

No, it isn't - according to the AU MY14 info we have.

The US MY15 TH now have the Luxury Group as a option but no word here yet.

Hi, The Trailhawk is a 2015 build according to the build sheet I was sent.
I didn't know that when it was ordered. Not until I joined this forum and signed up for the vehicle tracking.

Awesome stuff.

Thanks for the replies everyone, much appreciated. Eventually got them to do me a build on the spec I wanted. I think it was just a case of them trying to move the stock they have, which is fair enough, but to say the CAN'T do a build was stupid. So anyway have my Trailhawk on order and now I just have to wait until January to receive it
