Does that mean it's possible that they'll start up production on the 2014s before dealers/people can start placing orders?

On the one hand that wouldn't make too much sense, but on the other I guess it is possible...

I went to see a dealer on Monday who ,surprisingly, knew plenty about the 2014. However, he kept telling me nothing was guaranteed, things can keep changing, etc... Kept telling me he wasn't going to be able to order anything until sometime mid February and then it would take 12 weeks to receive.

I wasn't sure if he was being honest or if he was just discouraging me in order to sell his 2013 inventory.

Why not?

They know they will need to pump out Black, White, Red, (Orange) JC Laredos, Limiteds, etc...

They can also assume from previous orders, what the most popular packages will be.

There's no reason they can't start producing them now and then ship them out once the delaers start placing orders.

If they waited for dealer orders to actually begin producing cars, we'd all be waiting a LONG time to get our cars...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

They still need to do the full change over to the 2014 model, this has been stated many times by Milous and Chevyboy. As of right now, production is slated for Jan 22nd but this can change. There has been no complete confirmation on the ordering changing to Feb 5th yet as Milous has stated.

Even if the ordering banks open up on the 8th, they won't produce it until the 22nd. Then we would still be waiting 6-8 weeks for it to arrive.

Hopefully I am correct on this and didn't over step my bounds Milous/Scott/Chevyboy/Marlon

Just send me my new Jeep. We'll deal with the paperwork later.

I think Milous and chevyboy and Marlon were saying that if production starts on the 22nd of January as has been planned for some time now, that we can probably expect to receive the vehicle in late February, early March.

I sure hope that still remains true. I can't bear to wait much longer!

That's why I was thinking it was possible. I just wasn't sure how risky that would be for the company to do.

You're right though, there are only so many trims, colors, and packages; plus they can look at past orders (I was thinking this before too) and I'd venture to guess that a lot of customers don't really care so much about having everything customized exactly anyway.

OK. What's this about an Orange Jeep? Do you know something I don't know?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

You know, if they do indeed start production on the 22nd of January while not opening the order banks until February 5th (instead of January 8th) after all, I think I might actually prefer that -- I assume by that point everything would definitely be confirmed and finalized, from pricing to packages to colors and so on, which would make me feel more comfortable about placing an order.

Well first thing is we gotta go back to work.

Can we at least get that milestone out of the way? (I wonder how different the plant will look when we get back? I'm hearing a lot of stuff is going on inside!)

I also have hopes that they're progressing on that Subway.

Milous, how many 2013s do we have left to build? I can then attempt to figure out an estimate of how much longer until buildout.

So I take it nobody likes that non-HID Limited?
