I don't want this thread to go astray, but I think the new Corvette Stingray looks good, but the 2013 Viper was revealed first and the front end of the Corvette Stingray looks like Chevy just copied the SRT Viper.

Chevy, I see you have said the export production starts tomorrow, do you know if thats just petrol V6 and V8's, or the export diesels as well.

I'm not sure if it was ever said whether export diesels would be built before the north american ones or start up around the same time.

Cheers

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Did anybody figure out where the urea stuff goes in, and where is the tank?

No idea.. They just told me that the reinforcement plate that gets welded on the side of the trans tunnel (for exports) is the same as the ones I was using on the '11-13s, and that my RHD dashes weren't in yet, but I'd have some in tomorrow (today) to start BUX (export) production.. There's no way for me to tell what gets built from over here though.. That's why I take those early morning trips over to Assembly on the days I come in on day-shift.

But I can tell you this, between both shifts, we probably built between 7-900 '14 WKs yesterday. The RHDs will probably get mixed in here and there today and through the beginning of next week, but won't really ramp up until they have the buildup of US stock they want.

I'll keep count of how many we do today if you're really interested to know.
