I thought the CRD/8 speed was going to be a late availability for the 2013 MY then the refresh was 2014 MY???

"Orders" by individual customers who are buying them? Or "orders" from dealers? Will Altitudes only be the closing models of MY2012 (and not available in 2013)?

Those were the early rumors, but it looks like christmas came early and they moved up the refresh to coincide... basically its still going to be late availability for 2013, but it will be a 2014 model with the refreshed changes.

Those wanting any other engine besides the CRD will have to wait until the end of 2013 to order the 2014 refreshed (on the normal schedule). Only the CRD will get the refresh released early

Detroit can bring out a "next model year" version as early as the Super Bowl. That said, any bets it will be part of a package that is at least a $5k option & "not available on Laredo" ?

MILOUS, when can I order a 2013 CRD? Does that also open on June 6th? Will the CRD be available in ALL GC Models?

That sucks - my dealer told me I could order until this Friday. I've delayed based upon his representations to me. Now I'm pissed.

You will not be able to order a 2013 CRD, it's going to launch as a 2014 model. Ordering should open up in the late December-January timeframe. The CRD will be available on the Laredo, Limited and Overland.

With 2013 order banks opening in a month I wouldn't be pissed, I'd order up a 2013. The 2012 models are now a year old. You're only looking at maybe around a 1 month delay since there will be no shut down between end of 2012 model production and start of the 2013 models.

He told me about 5 weeks from the time I ordered until the time it arrived at the dealer. If I order a 2013, how long is it going to take? I thought they weren't being produced until later this summer.

Milous, I wish I could convince the dealer that the 2012's on their lot is a "year old" as you say. Its unfortunate that the prices have been increased considering the QC problems we are reading about.

I hope they dont pump out the GC's too fast and the quality degrades.
