I got a response a little higher up at Jeep today... Production will be July and we should see scheduling in June. There is a possibility it may start a little sooner but not likely.

Apparently the 1% is an a starting point on the primary build mix but they have some capability to adjust that once they see the orders. I was reassured that my order would get built and in a timely fashion once production begins.

They could not give me details on any current delays or any other specific details other than they are prepared to ramp up Diesel Production starting with the Jeep.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Thanks Willx. 1% as a starting point or before orders makes much more sense.

I take it with a Grain of salt. In watching the Forum in the past Milous has always had more accurate and up to date info (maybe just more honest). I am still waiting for Milous to weigh in on the 1% build. If he can confirm that is just the start I would find that more plausible but it seems logical.

The only reason I got a real and fast response from Chrysler is I said I would cancel. My local dealer has worked pretty hard to get me to switch as I see a lot of people in my day and he knows I sell what I drive (send a lot of people to the dealerships I work with).

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Hi Will,

It looks like you got a great dealer. Those whom I have contacted just say "we do not know and btw, how about a nice V8 instead?"

You know what.... there are so many posts on this forum that I think..... SWITCH DEALERS! Of course that is not always possible but man some of the stories.
I have driven everything from Tractors to
Toranados... everything has problems and either your dealer works with you to get it solved and is reasonable or they don't.
Only 2 things I need, communication and effort to solve the problem.

With an attitude like that I'd love to give you a job in DC (regardless of which side of the aisle you're on)?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Thanks to all the information available on this board, especially the Pricing Thread, I was able to pick me up a fresh from the factory Limited yesterday. Just an FYI , my dealer was willing to honor the Chrysler Affiliates Reward pricing ( 1% under invoice) just by my mentioning it. I was actually able to get 2% under which I am happy with.

Got me a White Limited with the following options: Off Road Adventure I , Trailer Tow Group IV, U-Connect 8.4 AN.

Here's a few quick pics I took: Well 1 pic, others didn't upload.....
