I agree send the Durango to Sterling Heights. Keep the Grand Cherokee at it's home.

There problem solved.

If they are adding leather to any of the special editions wouldn't they have to be limited based with the way Jeep has formatted the line up? Or could slap some leather in the Laredo black out everything and call it an Altitude like they did with the 12?

I'm having a serious issue with looking at this for an example as a VIN:

1C4RJFBG2EN455632

instead of....

1C4RJFBG2EC455632

Ugh... makes me sick just thinking about it.

They can take the Durango there and leave it there... I want my Jeep to stay at home!

But at least it's better than looking at this:

What is the significance of the N, C, 3 and T. Doesn't the N, C and T represent the trim level?

Is the 3 one of the whole new vehicles we will be seeing soon?

Another thing I am wondering about is the 75th anniversary Edition. Surely they aren't going to shove it into the MY16? When they can ring in whole new mile stone with the next generation. I know other people on this site aren't looking that far ahead.. I am!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

VIN Character #1 is the Country Code, 1=United States 3=Mexico.
VIN Character #11 is the Plant Code, C=Jefferson, N=Sterling Heights, T=Toluca

So


1C4RJFBG2EN455632

Would be a SHAP built Grand Cherokee


1C4RJFBG2EC455632

Would be a JNAP built Grand Cherokee

This I might add is due to the help and definite information provided by Milous and his mates on this site.

And Jeep Aust have been telling their dealers, "Dont take any notice of them, JG is a load of shit and they dont know what theyre talking about."

This statement has been verified by some dealers as well. Slander and sacrilege I say!!

So, my advice is from experience, fish around on this site for info and take the dealers info with a grain of salt.

Milous and mates are god.

Yeah Mate, I agree with you there!

It was really hard trying to get a VON number out of them. He kept saying that it's not called a VON number it's called a VIN number and that it would be issued when the car is built.. Called Jeep UK, and they didn't even know what Day it was, soo as you could imagine, there was no help there..

..Soo in all it took me 8 phone calls and 4 visits to the dealer to get a VON number

I think the lack of knowledge with the entire dealer network on a global scale is disappointing, and they need to try better, and give customers a better buying experience from start to finish..

In the beginning stages when the 14" GC was announced at New york or whatever show it was, it was a nightmare trying to find out when it would be launched on UK ground. After many phone calls to Jeep UK and dealers right from February though to May I got NOTHING, NO INFO AT ALL!! I found out 2 week before before the launch date in July from my local dealer, Great huh!

I had requested a brochure online back in May when they let you register to receive one, once the car is launched (did this twice), and all to this day I haven't seen anything from Jeep UK.. Just plain poor customer service really!

I think had it not been for this forum, I would have ordered something else from another manufacture. The waiting was the hardest not knowing if and when it was going to be available to order, Jeep UK don't open order banks until the car is launched, silly really I think!

I ordered my GC in July of last year as soon a it dropped, and still waiting..

My dealer hasn't been to bad TBH, they have been updating me as of when they have any info..

I think the problem lyes with Jeep UK, total dummies work there I tell yah

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

TAKE OUR HEAT!! PLEASE!!

Dont mean to rub it in to our US Jeep brothers (and UK too) but we are having the biggest heatwave downunder.

Melbourne has 4 days straight over the 40c (104F+)

Still 36c/97f at 9.15pm Tuesday night here. :-(

Poor buggers playing tennnis in Australian Open in that heat.

So, send some snow Downunder!!
