Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Here's the official scoop on ordering. Surprise, Milous was right!

Do not flame me, I'm only the messenger. Sno, this comes from MABC Supply Chain Manager. Read all the way to the bottom, GC opens 1/15 but "containment" until mid-March.

SUBJECT: February Order Run



DISTRIBUTION TODAY



HEADLINE: “FEBRUARY Allocations open on Tuesday, January 8th”



o 1/8 Allocations Launch to dealers by 9:00 AM

o 1/10 Orders Due by 6:00 PM

o 1/11 “BG” Visibility

o 1/11-15 Replace “BG” orders with buildable CPOS

o 1/15 Balance Out at 6:00 PM

o 1/15 February Allocation (final 2 weeks production) released for 2014…

o Grand Cherokee

o Compass

o Patriot



· Now is the time to set yourself up for a strong 2013. Order-up for the spring market.

NEW PRODUCT “HOT CORNER”:

· 2014 Grand Cherokee Allocation:



o 2014 Job 1 is 1/24/13

§ First 3 weeks of production will be pre-specs

o ASM’s will communicate to dealers early February

§ February Allocation will be available 1/15/13

o Allocation will represent final 2 weeks of February

o Allocation Formula

§ 90 day sales – 50%

§ Total Availability - 50%

§ 2014’s will remain in containment until early March

So it looks like we won't get them until mid-March, still not too far away.

Guys,

as I already told you, my order for the 3.0 CRD is done.

Here in Switzerland they're talking about July till the cars are here.

So, when you will get it in March, you can be veeeery happy!

Since it now looks like the GCs won't be delivered to the dealers until March, maybe they figure on holding back on the 'launch' until the dealers have product to sell.

Although there is a lot of enthusiasm here, I'll bet the majority of potential customers never heard of JeepGarage, and don't want to see a product launched with no product on the lot to back it up.

I think it was mentioned that most cars are bought off the lot, so maybe those guys planning this know what they are doing. Maybe not.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Thanks JJ! Unless I'm misinterpreting, the info seems to contradict itself though (EDIT, maybe not, as the Grand Cherokee is listed after "1/15 February Allocation (final 2 weeks production) released for 2014…"); what are the orders that are due between the 8th and the 10th?

Also, what are "pre-specs"?

Sucks they'll be in containment until early March, but that's not too bad.

The first section is for everything except GC, Compass and Patriot. There was a section below for each of those, I just deleted the Compass and Patriot and kept the GC.

I have no idea what the pre-specs are and what happens to them, perhaps one of the insiders can tell us. Either way it doesn't seem like mid-March is that far off from when we would have gotten them anyway.

Thanks, yes, I noticed that after reading it again more carefully.

I was kinda hoping we'd get them closer to the end of Feb/beginning of March, but you're right, two weeks or so isn't a huge difference.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Here's a question I had. I think I know the answer but I'd just like to confirm. Let's say that my dealer and I agree on a price, for example maybe invoice (I'm hoping for lower but we'll see). Then, say that upon delivery of the vehicle to the dealer, Jeep is offering bonus cash and a rebate as well. Is the dealer "obligated" to sell the vehicle at invoice minus bonus cash and minus rebate, since Jeep is "paying for" the bonus cash and rebate rather than the dealer?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

My guess is that's between you and your dealer although I'm absolutely certain my dealer would honor it. I can't imagine there being and cash or incentives on 2014 models though.

My dealer is telling me there are some rebate coupons if you attend the auto show, I'll have to see whether that excludes 2014 or not.

Maybe they learned from the fiasco with the Dart launch. The Detroit call center had 1,000's of hits but the dealers had no cars to sell. When they trickled in 1 and 2 at a time they were manuals that sold but the high demand was for the automatics. When they tried to get back in touch with the said potential buyers they failed to respond. Sounds like they've learned from this debacle.
