January is way too early for the Wagoneer... I show a MUCH shorter shutdown than 3 wks, very little time will be needed as most of the required tooling will be phased in before January.

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I didnt mean the Wagoneer would be released then or start production....but maybe they were putting in some systems to make it happen when it does. But it sounds like Milous has the scoopas usual and your shutdown will not be 3 weeks. Ask your plant manager if he knows that.....oololololololololololololololololol

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, as was the case with the WD. The whole plant was retooled for WK2 and WD in early 2010, even though the WD didn't begin production until the end of the year. So if the GW will be launched as a 2014.5 (mid summer), I could see the retooling being done well in advance. Idk.. I'm just excited now abt potentially getting 3 weeks off!

Back to the topic at hand, question; will the Bright White that replaces Bright Silver Metallic be exclusive to the AE trim, as far as SRT's are concerned? Reason being, I seen one earlier over in Final Assembly (bright white), that had the standard wheels (the old ones), and didn't look to be an AE. Makes me wonder if the one I saw a couple weeks back in audit was just a regular '13 Bright White SRT with the new optional wheels, and not an actual AE?

Oh no, I'm picking up whatcha layin' down. I was saying "this time next year" as in a July-August launch, not January man! Lol..

And talking to management around there is like trying to get a straight answer from a politician. They act like everything is top secret, but clearly it isn't, bc it's all on here!.. Whenever I mention something I read on here, they look at me like where'd you get that from!???.. Maybe I'll give em the site name if they promise to join and become contributors.

Sure thing.. Then that'll be my last day! Smh.. You know that's actually how a guy got fired back in 2010! That first leaked pic of a black Durango that was put online (back when they didn't know what they were gonna call it), was taken over in final. They somehow traced it back to the OP and his a** was soon "Exported from Detroit!" lol

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

When those SRT's starting rolling down the line with an S/C under the hood...that is when Chrysler gets my money...

Let us know when that happens :-)

Re: 2013 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hmmm... That makes me further question what the additional hiring at the end of this year is abt then, if no other vehicle is gonna be launched for another year (from then)? We're already running 24hrs, 6-7 days across 2 shifts.. Maybe they'll try to dedicate more time/personnel for the Venezuela builds when we switch to that A,B,C shift crap, bc they seem to always be behind on them.

Anyway, back on topic; do you have any updates on the AE specs/features? I've been checking on "Dashboard" daily, but they haven't posted anything about it. July 17th isn't too far away, so maybe I'll hold off until then. (I'm sure others are considering the same.)
