They aren't running at full speed yet. If you ordered during 1st allocation, probably looking at Late Feb / March timeframe. Some have gotten Feb 18th as the delivery date. All depends if they still need to spend a few weeks in QC

I haven't ordered yet. I'm planning on ordering a CRD when the banks open up for them. If production stays as scheduled, starting on march 25th as per the OP, it looks like about a month for first units to roll off the line? I'm just hoping that the truck could be ready for my camping trip in May if I order on Tues.

My order, a V6 Laredo E (ordered Jan. 16, the day after the bank opened) went to D1 on Jan. 31st and it along with two other Jeeps has an estimated delivery date of Feb. 18th. I'm cautiously optimistic but I'm thinking a date closer to March 1st is probably more realistic, what with previous estimates being that shipments would be released from quality control containment in the 3rd week of February... and also what with the temporary slowdowns at the plant which I don't know if the "estimated delivery date" algorithm accounts for. But we'll see, I might get lucky!

Most people "in the know" like Scott, Milous, etc., have said we're probably looking at around 7-8 weeks minimum from order to delivery, with longer waits entirely possible. But keep in mind that since the CRD production doesn't start until March 25th according to the first post in the Features & Changes thread, the 7-8 weeks (minimum) likely starts from that date, not from the date you order.

So this is just an uneducated guess, but depending on when in May you need it by you might be pushing it. Others can weigh in on this too though.

I ordered on the 17th. I'm expecting the same ETA as well roughly late February to mid march.

There are some of us that ordered right when the banks opened and haven't gotten past Pre-release. They aren't exactly going in order of when you ordered, nor sure how they are determining that. Maybe Milous or Marlon/Chevy can weigh in on that aspect.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I was wondering if they were consciously looking for a variety. The 3 in D1 of the 40 listed are a Laredo, Limited and Overland. My Overland has Adv Tech Grp and ORAII.

I wonder if they go in vin order. Mine is 125811, and I'm in pre-release.

According to Milous they don't get built in order of when they're ordered, and according to Scott they don't get built in VIN order.

If I had to guess, I'd say it's probably a combination of factors including:

- Parts and color availability
- When it was ordered
- Where it's going to be delivered
- How common the order is (they might try to group similarly optioned/trimmed/colored vehicles together).

Along with some other factors maybe.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Was just browsing the order-info and noticed that you can't order the Rear DVD-Player on a diesel. Does that make any sense at all?
