Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information

Does anyone know how long it takes for an order to show up in the VOTS system? "https://www.jeep.com/vots/". I got my VON today, but it is not recognized in the system.

Yep, I know you guys are paying ridiculous prices... What I meant is that I hope the prices aren't the same because of that. I'm hoping the ripoff isn't concealing an actual price differential.

Historically diesels have always been sold at a premium to 'standard' petrol engines in Australia. V8s have commanded a premium also. The Pentastar GC is about $5k cheaper than the CRD or V8. Pricing the CRD and V8 together is probably reasonable and reflects historical practice across the Australian market.

Agree that it seems reasonable... But previous diesel editions in the US came at a premium even over the V8.

Yep, and while I hate to wait, it's a great feeling knowing that the ball is finally rolling now. Before when we were waiting for months and months, there were so many unknowns involved and during that time, nothing was getting done as far as our Jeeps being built. But now that our orders are placed everything is finally set in motion.

Now we just have to hope that production goes smoothly and there are no significant delays.

It's gonna be so awesome when we finally take delivery...

Correct, the CRD & V8 have exactly the same pricing here in Aus.
You can see our price comparisons here Pricing, just enter 2000 as the post code.

If you look here you can also see that the CRD (8.2 seconds) has a quicker 0-100kmh (0-60mph) time than the V8 (8.7 seconds), although this may change with the new 8 speed box.

I expect a long wait.

The SRT's don't even start being built until the end of March according to Giles on twitter. That's not MY SRT, that's the 13's that got rolled over into 14's, then the US orders and mine.

So yes, there will be a wait. I suspect six months area. My question is.. six months from now or from April 1 area? Almost afraid to ask.

Won't be so bad, I'll get to watch magazines and car blogs get hold of the new SRT and flog the ever loving hell out of it. Thus showing me what it does, it's true 0-60 times etc (not that it matters, I'll rarely use that option). Just be nice to see it in motion, kicking ass.

Then I'll share in the excitement as the first JG orders start to get realized and in time, mine will arrive. I might be late to the party but make no mistake, there shall be a party.

Anyone order a Summit and found this to be true?
Trailer Tow IV is Standard on the 4WD Summit, $795 option on the 2WD. It is included with the diesel.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information

First of a Very Big Thank You to Milous and all others who have provided very useful info here.

Long time lurker, first time poster - I joined this forum a few months ago just to browse thru the info on 2014 JGC. It is at the top of my list for the next car. I plan to buy one within the next few months.

I am very happy that now that 2014 JGC has been officially announced and all Canadian order details made known by Milous.

Once again, Thanks Very Much indeed!!!

Cheers.

PS. How do I thank another member in the forums?
