We know everyone is chomping at the bit to get the Jeep but it isn't going to matter how fast the line is moving right now. Once the Jeeps are finished they are going to be sitting in QC for a few weeks, this has been mentioned before. So hope for sooner than Mid-March for delivery. This has been stated by Scott, Milous, and Chevy.

If you got in on the first allocation, Chevy said he was confident that people would have their new rides by end of Q1.

He'll check it out when his arrives..He supposedly ordered one already. I guess the best way to learn on what your getting is when you receive it..lol

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

If the GC status is "pre-release" does that mean it's in the first allocation?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

We're building about 600/day now guys. WK and WD. Slowly getting back up to speed.

About all the news I have about The Line®

NOTE: I AM REFERRING TO ASSEMBLY LINE, not body shop. When I say "Built", I mean completely assembled vehicles ROLLING OFF THE END OF THE LINE. I believe this is also Milous' definition as well.

As in "I" and "J" status. Those are built vehicles.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Is the rocker trim on the Overland painted or moulded the desired color?

Didn't Chevy go so far as to say that he would personally deliver those that weren't shipped by then ... lest we forget.

And about the exterior... the new arealight in the mirrors... where can I find / see a picture of it?
I am with you GIGI boy. I actually purchased a 2012 and waited 5months to find out the dealer imported the wrong colour for me. They offerred to get me another but said it would not arrive until February 2013. By this time (last October) I knew the 2014 with the 8 speed was coming so I informed my dealer I would wait for the 2014.....but while I was waiting I actually imported the ambient lighting kit from America. Will I be able to fit this accessory to my MY14 Summit or will it be useless because the MY14 already has ambient or will I be able to still get the dealer to fit it as an extra to what is already in the MY14.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

BTW: We now have an entire department dedicated to nothing but quality control. They have several (and I do mean several) stations on The Line® to ensure correct assembly and yes they DO stop the line if anything doesn't even so much as LOOK right.

We had QC in the past, but the dedicated department is new.
