Your truck is in the designated shipping yard next door, where most of the cars in the region are shipped from. Which means it should be shipping soon.
I do see almost all of the SRT's that are finished are being stored there and there are quite a few other models being stored there also, mine being one of them. What do you mean wheremost of the cars in the region are shipped from? As in if they are going to local dealers? We are literally 45 minutes north of there so I am hoping that is what you mean and it could possibly be here within a few days... Although I still have my fingers crossed for tomorrow...

I'm taking the half-full approach.

My Jeep is being checked over with a fine tooth comb by the most discriminating craftsmen on the planet.

When it is delivered it will be PERFECT !!!

My apologies.. I meant most of the ChryFi cars built in the region. Of course this means the GC and Durango, but the Rams (from Warren), the vans (from Windsor), and I've even spotted a few Darts in this yard. It's like a shipping hub where dealer's orders can be complied and bulk shipped together. If you're not too far, you should come down sometime and check out a Tigers game or sumn, and ride by the plant to see for yourself.

In regard to bulk shipping, this is another facet of the delays.. Sometimes cars sit bc they're waiting for x number of Rams to come in from Warren truck, with maybe a couple minivans to go on a truck with x number of Jeeps... It saves money, especially when an order is going to say California. Many times cars are shipped by train, but again, that's another delay point, bc it's cost a lot of money to get them to redo their schedule, and arrange shipping. There's just too much to it all.

Honestly, all of the shipping has been off since we had that catastrophe at initial launch, and it's just unrealistic to think that things could be back flowing smooth this early thereafter. The only way those that already have taken delivery of their Jeeps got them so early was because I told some higher ups that I needed some cars pushed thru before the end of Q1 so I don't look like a fool on JG.

Seriously tho, that early disaster wasn't even the only delay we've had with this launch. Honestly, this is probably one of the worst launches in the new era. Along with the '13 Ram last year. But consumers will never know it, bc the QC is being done in advance. Ask somebody who ordered a '13 Ram how long they waited, and see what they tell you. It's been terrible. But like I always say, "if it ain't right, it's wrong!" And when I fix a car, I can't sign off on some "ok" work. And I'm glad that the company has come around to the same mentality. So wait today, and be happy tomorrow. Cause God knows, if your Jeep ended up being a shop queen, you'd wish it got a lil more attention before it left the plant.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Thanks Chevy, as always. I keep telling myself it will be here when it gets here... At least with Christmas we know that it isn't going to move anywhere past 12/25 though

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Yeah!!!!! Vots emailed me this morning to say my summit had jumped 2 levels from production, to paint. Chevyboy, my vin is ec145920, it is a black summit. Please let me know if you have seen it, and if the lower panels are painted black, or the granite color. I am hopeful it is all black, but actually will be happy either way. So, will i get lucky enough to take delivery in the next week or so? I can't wait!!!!!!!!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I was able to locate some of you guys' cars who have pm'd me. I won't say who's, bc I don't want to discourage anyone and don't have time to look for anymore cars. Please, no more pm's about, "hey Chevy can you find my car." Not that I don't WANT to help you guys out, I just can't help everybody out, so it's not fair.

Anyway, you all should know that some of your Jeeps will be shipping soon. Idk what your tracking info says, but based on what I see, some of it needs to be updated. While other's cars have issues relating back to the "great catastrophe" back in January. Again, I won't say who, because I don't wanna discourage anyone.

Nevertheless, things are flowing smoothly, and there are no issues at the moment with any cars currently being built. We had a lil mix up last week with something from a supplier, but all is well again.

I know this is kind of a useless update, but I wanted to let you all know that your cars aren't just sitting around collecting dust.. Or snow. Things just take time.

Edit: Idk about Assembly, but they've got this sucker cranked up so high over here in Body, we may just hit 650-670 today!.. She's definitely in high gear!!!

Maaaaan, I ain't heard NOTHING!!! These chumps got me all excited, and now it seems like they done kicked the can down the road on me again. But I ain't trippin. Hell, at least I've got a job. And sadly, that's more than many around here can say.. So I'm good. What's for me, is for me.. And if this is, then eventually I'll get it. (Whenever that is. )

Hey man, my girl and I are going back to Chicago in a few weeks, maybe I'll extend the drive and swing by to deliver it to you personally. I'll have to give you 4jeepdiesel's case too, bc apparently he went ahead and bought that Kia. (Don't see him around here much anymore.)

So can we read between the lines and if someone's jeep was built this week they "should" be issue free?
