It was also available in the U.S. for the 2010 model year. Like Canada, it came with the 5.7L Hemi.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If the orders are open for 2013, when is the web page going to be updated ? It is still showing 2012 models

Officially, the 2013 model year starts on September 1st. Sometime between now and then they will update the site, they're still building 2012 models and want/need to still sell and promote them.

Is that a hint at possible future availability in US next year? That is literally my dream car... Ever since I sat in an srt8 I have wanted the carbon fiber and the seats on my car... But I also wanted the diesel!

Maybe this will be a 2014 thing?
I finally saw a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 and the interior is exactly what I'm looking for, and I saw an Altitude and love the exterior. If they make a 2014 Jeep G.C. Limited-S with the SRT8 like interior and the Altitude like exterior, with the 5.7L V8 Hemi as an option, I'll DEFINITELY buy one.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

For those of you like myself who are considering buying a GC (SRT of otherwise) in the near future, you should start seeing slightly better deals within the next month or so. '13s are rolling off the line as we speak. Job #1 actually was built this morning. Dealers probably won't start getting em until the '12s phase out tho, which typically takes a couple months. But with this being such a great summer demand wise, who knows how soon you could start seeing them. Usually this time of year things slow down a bit, and we're off 1-2 weeks, but we're still running like crazy, and there is no mid summer shutdown for changeover this year, so I wouldn't be suprised if they start shipping early to mid August! Of course that's pure speculation on my part, but I just thought those of you with orders placed on '13s should know, you're one step closer to getting it!.. Enjoy!

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Oh! Wow.. Figured it'd be sooner than usual. All the storage/holding yards around here seem to be near empty. And we've been doing a lot more OT than usual for this time of year, but they've still been shipping cars as fast as we can build em for the past few months. So that doesn't surprise me.

Hey have you heard anything abt us being down for 3 weeks in January? The rumor is something abt retooling for the other vehicles to be built here.. It'd be great to get some solid info so I can plan around that. Thx..

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

A mid cycle refresh that calls for 3 weeks of retooling? They didn't have that kinda downtime when we launched the WD's! Sure enough, the '14 WKs are supposed to be significantly different than the '12-'13 models, most of which I learned from this site, and was able to confirm. But again, the rumor is they're making changes to accommodate that 3rd vehicle and possibly parts of the Maserati (4th vehicle) when the time comes. The Maserati is going to be hand built, so it'll probably have its own seperate line (?), but that's a little further down the road anyway. I'm just curious as to whether or not the "3 weeks" part can be confirmed, bc waiting for word to come down here, will almost certainly be last minute. I know this is a lil off topic, so I digress, but it'd be nice to know exactly what's coming so I can make adjustments of my own in advance. Thx guys..

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

maybe the 3rd vehicle will be the 2014.5 Grand Wagoneer?

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yep.. I didn't know if any info was released on it yet, thats why I didn't refer to it by name. But heck, you guys prolly have the scoop on that too! I'd assume that'll get launched around this time next year.. Milous???

And I believe I read somewhere on here that the Durango will be phased out in '15? Maybe the GW will more less take its place, and they'll just stick with 3 utility vehicles. Can't see this place being able to sustain building 4 cars without major expansion. We can barely keep up with the 2 we have now!
