The on line application site will be swamped for those positions. I live 25 miles from TP1 and TP2 and my brother in law works there along with a cousin in law. Needless to say I take advantage of that fact.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I too think that's great news, but having worked in manufacturing for forty years, I hope mine gets built before all those trainees hit the shop floor. In today's high tech manufacturing environment there's a steep learning curve, and mistakes are bound to happen. Just the same, that's really great news the job faucet is opening up for auto workers in the good old U. S. of A.

Hi Milous, I noticed that you updated the first page for 4/22. Shall I assume that you can still order the CRD when orders open up on March 5?

Thanks.

I know this is kind of off topic here. But why? Apple's Chinese factories add tons of new workers for the Iphones and none of us are worried. It is all in the training and quality control.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Just some info on timeline process for those thinking of placing order for new 2014 JGC:

On Feb 21st, I placed order for 2014 Overland. Today, Feb 28th, received an e-mail from Jeep with a Tracking number, designated as a VIN, composed of a total of 8 letters and numbers, along with log in page and last name for log in. Also a link to the site to "see the status of your vehicle".
There, it's listed in phase "Production Scheduled" as well as model type and options ordered. All checked out and will periodically visit the site to check as it moves thru the "Production Stages" cycle.

Interesting point, but Jeeps and iPhones, American factories and Chinese sweatshops, night and day, apples (pun intended) and oranges? Although I must admit I'm not worried because I've never owned an Apple product.

I have worked with a number of Chinese engineers, and they were smart and motivated and living in the U.S. of A., and working for American manufacturers, and had no intention of going back to China.

I guess we can agree to disagree and return this thread to its rightful owners.

Has anyone heard anything about lease rates/offers? If not, any idea when that should be expected?

Advanced Tech Group is available for order on Overland and trims above it.
I am ordering an Overland and the salesman said that the Advanced Tech group was not available.
