Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

OK, so the only other thing that I see is orderable with the Diesel right now (not publically) is the ProMaster and it has the option of a 6 Speed Automated Manual (WTF)... Can't see why they would suddenly pull all the stops and make this about the RAM considering that at the dealer level there is no pricing available that I can see and on the internet it looks like you could go to your dealer and pick up a JGC with one installed already. This is all looking bassackwards.... anyone else agree???

Edit: Whoops Promaster is a 4cyl 3.0 Diesel, thought that was a typo in the order info, my mistake!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I think that perhaps the information that the Ram / Van is the reason for the delays may be mistaken, or misinterpreted. Given the information all you wonderful people have stated above I can't imagine why Dodge would be in line ahead of the JGC.

Perhaps there are hangups with the diesel on the Dodge platform, and they are holding up the JGC production because they want to start both at the same time? That doesn't seem very plausible to me, but its an example of an alternate interpretation.

Either way, this entire debacle about the Ram/Van doesn't refute the possibility that June ordering could include the diesel, and that production will start at the end of the month. Hold in there people, this is the final stretch!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Thanks, I promised myself I would wait until the end of June which I will do. But if they can't get something together by then, I will need to find something else. Frankly, I would feel better if they accepted the order and it took a couple of months to build because at least I know it will come eventually. Otherwise it is like Marlon says.... It is Canned or doesn't exist or won't happen. That is what average Joe is going to start thinking or the uniformed customer who doesn't know about OZ having them already is going to think there must have been big problems with the engine especially with EcoDiesel being in the media everywhere and people testing them but people can't buy them.

Seeing as Mercedes sold over 60% Diesels in thier SUVs Last Year up there and now have the GLK in Diesel I wonder how many non-members of JG wonder where this thing is?

No having a happy happy evening.... No rainbows and bunny rabbits today!
There are more guests reading this forum than members though so at least some jeep garage guests will know too.

Perhaps we are all being anxious and impatient. Jeep technically has 18 more months to produce a 2014 Grand Cherokee CRD.

BUT they just sent me a $500 coupon and the 95% of the accompanying brochure was geared toward the CRD. The Pentastar and HEMI were only mentioned in one paragraph. According to the coupon, which has photo of the CRD on it, I have until like August 31 to take delivery. This borders on false advertising -- showing pictures of the CRD on a coupon that expires before it becomes available.

I agree on getting the order accepted. If that happened and was told delivery would be a couple months I could wait. I wouldn't be happy but i would at least know the diesel was not a myth. Durn unicorn.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

I chatted with a couple dealers today, they all have said the same thing:

EcoDiesel ordering opens in July, delivery in Sept.

I did get some mixed signals on what you would be able to order though. 2 said "Summit Diesel only in initial orders", 3 others said Limited+

On the Ram front, most were reporting they were expecting Diesel Rams in Q4 2013 to Q1 2014.

At this point, I'm just popping some popcorn and watching the floorshow unfold. I know I'm either buying an Explorer, a 2014 Durango, or a Diesel JGC... the question becomes when.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Came here to check if some of you had ordered your CRD today. Sorry to read it's pushed back again - hopefully it's just one more week - but somewhat distressed to read the posts about the EcoDiesel possibly being canned for the US. That would be terrible.
I have had my BMW X5 diesel for 2 weeks now and loving it. Loving the torque and the interior - those seats are sooo comfortable. Getting 24MPG overall and got 28MPG on a 220 mile road trip yesterday.

Hope you guys get your diesel soon but just have to post pix of my X5 just cuz I am so happy with it.
