I agree. Also the only light colored carpet is available on the overland. I love the look of a Black interior. The problem for me is the Hair from my golden retriever. For my VW Jetta they only sell the Black floor mats now.

I actually talked to a bunch of people that work for Chrysler at the US Grand Prix in Austin. I told them I wanted a golden retriever colored interior in the New GC. Looks like I got my wish.

We know that 2013 stock is getting low, and the initial issues with the production ramp up of the 2014's cost JNAP probably around 3 weeks of equivalent production. Add to that the estimated take rate of at most 15% for the CRD and they are probably just delaying the CRD to get more v6 and v8 models out the door and onto dealer lots. You do not want to go into spring with no product to sell...
but as that old saying goes, "I'd rather have one in the bag, than two in the bush."

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Do you guys know if you can get Indigo with Granite. I believe you cannot. I have Black/Indigo on order but I like Granite more and more ... It looks like MG on previous MY but a little bit darker.

So is this delay confirmed?

I have that same gun and if that's a perfect fit that's just too damn small of a space for an armrest. Glad I'm not getting the cd player.
(although it'd be convenient when carrying it.)

I'm an all black (leather) guy or, in the case of the 14 JGC Summit, dark chocolate. The light interior colors bore me silly. I love light colored exteriors but those invariably sport light interiors. Usually, the only dark interiors you can get are on Black vehicles.

But, I gotta think I'm the exception. The dealers are carrying what most people want I would think. But I don't get it.
Really? When I was eyeballing the MY13's all I saw were black interiors. And of the 2 dozen MY14 JGC's near me only one has a light interior.

Although I may be in the minority, I actually prefer light interiors...

This CRD delay might be really bad for Chrysler, whatever the reason, because there are obviously tons of buyers itch'n to order and willing to spend $50K - $60K. I wonder how many potential GC customers will go for the Touareg because of instant availability (and Jeep even has VW to Jeep trade-in incentives...CRD delay = bad move)

The CRD has been around in other markets for over 12months so no issue with the engine, I'd suspect its a demand thing. Australia, UK, Europe mostly want diesel. Plently of V6 and V8 sitting in dealer lots here but hardly any CRDs remaining, overland CRD stock across the country is just about done.
