What does order mix ratio mean, they only expect 1% of orders to be CRD?

It means the factory can/will only build 1% of all limiteds, overlands and summits with the diesel. I'm not sure if that is the mix rate for the first month only or if it will be longer.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Well, since my CRD will get here late this year, does that mean I can sue Chrysler or VM Motori b/c my 2014 would depreciate more in a shorter amount of time?

At that point you might as well wait for the 2015 fully refreshed model.

Hey... does that mean we can start another class action lawsuit for those that wanted to order a first quarter CRD now that our vehicle is 6 months closer to being an "old" model. lmao

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Thanks for the info, Pat. We have been speculating about the increase in price for the V8. Either Mexican labor has got more expensive, or Chrysler is trying to make the CRD more attractive. 1% of a month, a quarter or a year production is still a lot of GCs, right?

Ha, I just said the same thing in our meeting this morning. It's all about perception.

Thank you for this valuable information, Pat, for those of us who have been waiting on the CRD.

Must say: Chrysler is screwing up the CRD rollout with these significant, unexplained production delays, and also with the exclusion of the CRD from eligibility for Jeep's Extended Lifetime Warranty coverage. Makes a long-time Jeep owner like me wonder "what are the problems that Jeep is encountering with the CRD?" and "why should I risk first year model ownership?" when Jeep will not sell extended warranty packages for the CRD as comprehensive as for the gas models.

This is not, of course, a slam against your work or against the fine Fields Jeep dealership.

This actually makes a lot of sense.

It looks like they are trying to time the RAM CRD, 2014 Durango, and JGC CRD releases to all hit about the same time.

From the RAM and JGC side of things, that makes a lot more sense. They can train the service bays on the diesel when there would be a greater influx of them (as opposed to just 1% of JGC).

June 22nd is also, more or less, Q3...
Jan-March 1st
April-June 2nd
July-Sept 3rd
Oct-Dec 4th

I did just receive a note from 3 dealers this morning, that CRD ordering opens July 2nd, delivery should occur in late August/early Sept.

What to do, what to do...

I'm not sure 07/02 will be correct as there is nothing on our calendar yet for the month of July, and the Business Centers will be closed on the 4th and 5th. Dumber things have happened though...

We had a corporate trainer here about 2 weeks ago that told us it would be August before we received any diesels. He made it sound like Jeep would be doing another drive away event for dealers to pick up their first one. Sounds the same for the new KL and Ram diesel.

Maybe you'll actually get real off road tires with your off road package. Nah, Jeep doesn't believe in that.
