Can I ask what makes you say this? For it to take until late April early May until they show up on lots I would think that would mean production wouldn't be starting until mid April, which is a lot later than the late January date Milous is saying... I remember that the 2013s started showing up on lots not much longer than a week or two after production started.

Actually quite a few U.S. CRD pilots have been built, maybe they were on a different shift? Limited and Overland models.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

FRICKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!!!

My current WJ is on its last leg, and I desperately wanted the '14 CRD. Basically you guys are telling me I'm gonna have to wait a year until I can get one?

Worst. News. Ever.

Seriously will have to start looking into the HEMI I suppose... which I really didn't want to do. Nice engine, but getting old and I have a feeling will be phased out eventually.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Ugh, why don't we just run a whole shift of pilots so we can get that out of the way?

Mineral Gray an Rugged Brown are done due to build out.

As far as orders for 13s, there are only a few models available to order.
26C
26X
26H

And 2 wheel drive V8 Overlands/summits

This could get interesting on the dealers side. We don't have enough 2013 GCs to get thru March.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The obvious solution is to begin production on the 2014s sooner, obviously.

I'm sorry.. I didn't know that. I should have said I still haven't seen any.. But this is good news I guess!

I still have yet to to see a production start date for the 14s and looking on my end 13s are still accepting orders. Only change is mineral grey is no longer available on 13 orders.

If I were a betting man I'd place money that production doesn't start till after the unveiling.
No disrespect, but where are you getting this info!??? This does NOT coincide with what's going on in-plant, and no recent timelines suggest this to be true. You're suggesting a production start in early February, and orders to ship in the end of the quarter? Seriously!???.. I AM a betting man, and I like the odds against this. Again, no disrespect, as I'm sure you have your sources too, but if your "insight" (on this in particular) proves to be accurate, then this will be the greatest FUBAR of a mere refresh I've ever seen.

That's been the plan all along - unveiling in mid-January (NAIAS) and production start late January. Are you seeing a different date for the unveiling?

Yes, definitely good news, and they started running them awhile back - which does not make sense if start of production was still a year away... unless some sort of major problem has cropped up with the U.S. CRD's, and their is no evidence pointing to that.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Under normal circumstances what is the lead time from production starting to dealers having units available for sale?
