Are we looking at early March when 14's are on dealer lots and potentially in my driveway?

Nice to see.

Do you have any idea how many orders the dealers placed, cumulatively, to be ready for the sales launch?

Shipments will start in late February so dealers should *start* to get them in early March.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

When does the 2014 model year end? I guess my question would be when do order banks close? Fall 2013?

I like the 2014 (without the LED headlights) due to all the refinements and technology enhancements Jeep made.

If I purchase one, it will be in the fall. I believe by then I should be able to walk onto a dealer lot and pick the one I want.
