Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Just an FYI for the CRD folks - according to the Jeep chat on Facebook regarding CRD availability (first question asked by the way)

"The new diesel will be available in dealerships in mid-Q2."

Thanks for that... I think that means they are still planning on late April production start...

Well this was interesting:
Q: What lead to the decision of removing the functional flipper gate ?
A: Improvement in overall visibility and weight savings

Thanks for the tidbit... I have new found hope that I might actually be able to order one on April 2nd. Mid q2 would indicate deliveries in May (probably the end of May more likely) if that is calendar year quarters.

Maybe that will mean they will put Sno's restricted order on hold and build my Jeep first ....

I can imagine an All American JEEP having a BIG Memorial Day Weekend delivery of CRD (Someone buyout my damn Nissan lease already - I can't wait until December! ) LOL

OR...(my attempt at reading Jeep's marketing management minds)

A: Lower manufacturing cost to increase profit. (Despite flipper being a valuable feature that almost every other competitor has.)

Why: Because the first wave of MY2014 models released in 2013 will sell due to 8-speed tranny, diesel, new radio, and simply being MY2014. First wave customers won't not buy due loss of flipper glass or odd interior color choices (dark or light, nothing in the middle).

By the time 2014 actually arrives, MY2014 JGC must be refreshed to attract new buyers -- by restoring what was held back or stripped off, notably more light exterior colors, better interior colors, "new" flipper tailgate glass, and maybe even the option to have a classic Jeep chrome face. (But I don't expect the off-road package units to actually get off-road tires...they ride too rough for dealer test drives. Which makes the "Trail Rated" badge a tad delusional.)

My Magic 8 Ball says, buy now to get the first, buy later to get the best.

Not sure if this is what you mean, but if you click on 'forums' above you can select your topic. If you are looking for something specific, use the search function.
