I'm right there with you - a real blue would make my year for the SRT. If one isn't added though, sign me up for one of Scott's grandma colors

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Guys forget exterior colors. Look at the interior!!! We all know that SADDLE is GONE (unfortunately) and replaced by JEEP BROWN.

BUT ... WHAT I DID NOT KNOW IS ...

the fact that new JEEP BROWN is only avilable on Summit. If you are lookiing at Overland than you will have to settle on Indigo Blue/Brown interior. I'm not really sure if blue interior is my thing ...

One thing I know right now is that unless I can see this GC in person, forget about ordering it. Just to many variables. They changed way to much...

Allocation is for dealer inventory and sold orders. I was told today that the GCs won't open for ordering on the 8th for dealer inventory or for sold orders and that ordering will open the following week.

Anything ordered this month is for Feb production. Anything ordered in Feb will be produced in March.

Whenever a sold order is modified, meaning a change of exterior color or options being added/deleted there is almost always a delay in production.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thought this would be the best way to explain what JJs dealer emailed and where the dealer gets the info. Below is the vehicle ordering and inventory management calendar for January. It shows when allocation opens and when it closes. I also can see the dates for February and March. It does not show what models might be excluded or what models might open later.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Pat,

If you place your orders om Jan. 16, and a customer comes in on Jan. 22 and places and order, how does that get handled?

There will almost always be a slight delay regardless of status. I had a client order a Billet Silver Wrangler and decided he wanted white. His JK was in D1 status so I called our supply chain manager for the MWBC and had it changed to white. It took an additional 3 weeks from the original estimated ship date.

There's two answers to that question. Usually we can take a existing "stock" order and modify it, or we can submit a new "sold" order and it will still get picked up and produced during the first production period. Sold order should get picked up first and usually do, but sometimes "stock" orders will show up first.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

That jives with what I was told a couple days ago, the goal/plan was to time it near the NAIAS intro.

The sooner the better, I think first allocation will fill up within days.
