My guy from Dave Smith called just as I was leaving there. I think if they're going to push it out another month I might just jump ship. I'm going to take the wife over there this weekend to see what she thinks of it.
What did the dealer say?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Judging from Walt_mink's latest post, nothing happened last night. Oh, well... May it is.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I've resigned myself to May ordering for CRD too. It doesn't matter when the orders flow as long as the mid-May production starts up on time. Will be a mid-summer delivery which works for me.

No, I meant that if walt_mink was actually able to get his order thru, then you shouldn't settle on the Hemi, if the CRD is what you really want. But judging by his post, it's not lookin too good.

Honestly, this is what I THINK they're doing; (see below)

1.) launch '14 GC gas models and begin shipping close to end of Q1.
2.) launch '14 GC CRD model in May, and begin shipping close to end of Q2.
3.) launch '14 GC new interior features/exterior colors close to end of Q3.
4.) launch select '14 GC special editions (ie. altitude?) Q4 or early Q1 CY14.
5.) launch Trailhawk II and/or new special edition SRT for the beginning of MY15.

3-5 may be a lil off, but you see the pattern.. Keep something fresh coming. Never let the buzz die.

VOTS had me in paint around 8am today and hasn't updated yet. MOTS still shows in D1 until it would go inspection, hopefully KZ by end of day today.

When I was waiting, things might have changed, vots was only updated once a day. Mine went from paint one morning to KZ the next.

That's kind of what I am figuring if it doesn't get stuck in Inspection

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Hey fellow CRD "waiters", I work for Enterprise rental and guess what showed up on the main rental car hauler unloading lot today....three new 2014 JGC's, all Limiteds with pano roofs, heated/ventilated seats, heated steering, big panel sound system and 3.7 V6's...so here's what ya do in order to keep from going nuts-RENT ONE for a couple days and drive 'er around and get a feel for it. Heck, I know I'm going to (but then again, I get a pretty substantial rental discount!). You can call your local rental office and talk with the rep there and see if they can specifically get ya one-of course, I was in Houston and it's probably larger markets for the time being...but hey-check at the largest city airport close to ya and see if they're getting them yet...

that should hold us over until, say....May/June!..???

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Guys, whatever your expectations are for this truck....double them. What a difference from my 2011 Overland. Tranny is like butter, interior is unbelievable, sound system is crazy good and the graphics on the dash and Uconnect are just awesome.

If you have your heart set on a particular truck don't give up on it for the sake of a couple of months. It's worth the wait.

Thanks to all for your encouragement, and especially Chevy and Marlon for the special touches.

PS - The stripe courtesy of the dealer looks great!
