Very desapointing at all.

Can somebody who work in the plant give me a hit, when exactely they are able to start with the 3.0 CRD for the European Market?

I made my order already in January and made a first payment. This with the acreement, that the car will be available in July / August.

Unfortunately the Fiat Suisse SA can't or don't want to give any further information, when the new Grand Cherokee will come to the market!!

The point is, when August doesn't work, I will cancel the contract and buy an other car.

I'm not interested to wait almost a year for a car!!!

Gigi

I joined and got my control number in less than 30 days. I was able to get the control number as soon as I got the packet of info in the mail, so roughly a week after joining.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Well, if the CRD is not available for ordering until May, I may have to just stop checking this website. It is just too agonizing. Thankfully, there is MLB 24/7

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Yeah we definitely need a Milous update bad. All kinds of different reports floating around from May to July now. I agree with amr40509 why can't they just take the the darn orders early in the system ahead of time?

There has been a lot of reporting from members who have heard from dealers, and Milous originally posted a tenative 4/4 order date. Normally he chimes in to let us know the latest. I would rather he chime in and say I haven't heard anything rather than ignoring the requests sent to him over the last several days. If he's busy, he's busy. But a lot of us are getting frustrated by these ongoing delays. I'd rather they just say it won't be until summer or fall, rather than pushing back a month at a time. Its a bit unethical. Eventually many of us will get frustrated and be done with it.

If its the summer I for one will take a hard look at the Audi Q5 diesel.

I'm of the same mindset.

If ordering does not occur until the end of May I may end up just pulling the plug and looking at other rigs.

The V8 is just way too thirsty for me (and the wife).

The V6 is nice but for $5k less (from 3% under Overland Invoice), I can get a Ford Explorer Sport. That thing belts out 365HP and 350 Ft/lbs of torque (Hemi territory there but without the nasty fuel consumption).

...and I haven't even really tried negotiating with the Ford guys. Pretty sure I can get that closer to $7k under my negotiated CRD price point.

Sure the interior isn't as nice, but at this rate... I'm just getting annoyed at Jeep and starting to look around (used ML with a BlueTech is looking kinda good now).

It would be nice to actually get some kind of official word as to what the hell is going on over there.

From what I gather they ARE building CRDs right now, but for export markets.

As for the messaging, it a complete cluster. Dealers don't know, the executives are clearly out of touch with what's going on (and telling the press wrong dates for availability), and the rest of us are now just getting really annoyed.

-------------------
Team,

We have been advised by HQ that the diesel will not be available for build until May for June build.


XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXXX Area Sales Manager
XXXXX@chrysler.com
--------------------


So it does seem like this is still the story they had planned to go with, it's just different than the 'Milous Version'


This is the same as what Milous last reported.... May 14 production start, with a "tenative" 4/4 order opening date. Meaning we would start seeing them show up on lots end of June or July. It also flows somewhat with what Jeep executives have stated of seeing CRDS on lots sometime in Q2.

Now we are hearing ORDERING won't even open until June or July, meaning production won't start until At least July, and we won't see them showing up on lots until September or later.

That means either they are having MAJOR issues with the CRD or someone really really doesn't know how to plan.

I am ranting, but basically what I am saying is, I am getting sick of Jeep's excuses. The only saving grace they might have is offering a $2,000+ rebate on the CRD when it is available. Otherwise I feel like the are just stringing us "suckers" along.

I got my control # 3 days after joining TL. Technically it's 30 days before the dealer can apply it to a purchase but that's probably not adheared to very closely.

I'm surprised VW is not running a sales special and targeted marketing effort for their Touareg Diesel. Seems to me they could get a LOT of attention from an increasingly frustrated group of JGC devotees!

For example, I see beautiful CPO (certified pre-owned) Touareg TDI's offered by VW that carry bumper-to-bumper warranties that run out to 5year/60k miles, with advertised prices of $42k. Knock a few thousand dollars off that price and you could have serious competition for a no-show-so-far product from Chrysler/Jeep.

I guess they're going to produce the jgc crd the same time as the crd wrangler which will be 2015. Good times

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I'm willing to wait if the production ends up starting in mid May but anything later and I'll end up going with the Touareg. I probably would have ended up going with the Touareg from the start if the back seats folded down flat. My Plan B wouldn't disappoint me at all.
