Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I know we're all still eagerly awaiting the 'big reveal' of what in the MOPAR EXTERIOR APPEARANCE GROUP offering... Milous, any word yet? In the meantime, have there been comparable offerings in the past (e.g. not a chrome upgrade but other stuff)? I'd like door protectors, but I loathe the chrome ones... hmmm...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I think it just means it has been scheduled, but no confirm date. If the line isn't moving at full speed and not making as many as it suppose to be, a firm date would be a waste. One day they could be running fine and then stoppage due to no parts. When the vehicle has hit the system and starts production Milous will update it in the tracking system between 1-3 times daily.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Just got an email from Jeep stating my Overland was scheduled for production in about a week.

Hope all goes well on the line from now on.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I just got the same e-mail, except it was for my Jeep, not yours.

I guess production is moving along. No partying for Marlon or Chevyboy until they get these on a train or truck.

Every step in the process is positive. As someone just posted, probably all orders have moved to Production Schedule. As long as I get it by Apr 1, I will be happy.

I may have answered my own question to some degree. Just googled the option to see if other Chrysler products have it. On the liberty it includes:
  • Black Tubular Side Steps by Mopar®
  • Front Tubular Grille Guard by Mopar®
  • Splash Guards by Mopar®
Guessing it'll be close for the GC.

I hope neither guy has a vacation in the next 8 weeks.

When you link to VOTS, it's probably a good time to double check that they have the colors and options correct, just in case.

In Canada there is a wider margin between dealer invoice and MSRP vs the U.S. But, in Canada the holdback is much less - $700 for all models, which equals things out a bit. The U.S. holdback is 3% of MSRP (almost 2k on the SRT).
I think a big reason for Canadian price differences has to do with some kind of tax issue. For anyone that doesn't know, Detroit borders Canada.

Except that there isn't an import tax on the GC due to it being manufactured in a NAFTA zone. Certification should be a non-issue as well since our bumper and emissions standards are aligned. They can't even blame currency fluctuation since it's been holding at or near parity for the better part of 4 years.

I can understand paying a bit of a premium in Canada. There is a cost to selling a vehicle, and the manufacturer is dividing that cost over 90% fewer vehicle sales (Canadian sales are typical 10% of the US market.) Is that cost $10K in the case of an Overland? Not on your life.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Yes! I finally got my e-mail from Jeep today too.

And just a day after modifying the order. So modifying an order doesn't appear to affect when the order is moved to "production scheduled" status, at least not in my case.

By the way Tom, not all orders have been moved to Production Scheduled -- there are still plenty in the tracking thread that have no status yet (like mine's been for the past two weeks since I ordered, until now).
