Yet WE know that production of the diesel is not slated to start until March 25th, 2013. So just how is jeep going to have these on the lots by the end of March? Simple answer is that, they are not.
This little factoid lends credence to the theory that while jeep does intend to have the diesel, They are really only doing it as a marketing ploy. Sort of like a $50,000 electric Toyota Rav 4, 'yes we are going to build it!' What they don't want to tell you is that they really don't want to actually sell it.
Jeep appears to be doing much of the same thing. Chrysler could have brought us a diesel jeep at any time. I refer to this article.

35 MPG: Why Wait Until 2020? | MPGomatic

Now granted, these wonderful sounding vehicles would not have been CARB compliant, but so what? Just stick a label on them that says "Not for sale in the state of California" and your covered. Why not allow those of us that live in 'fly-over' country an opportunity? I wouldn't even care if it was a right hand drive. Just make it available, I'll worry about the emmissions checks in my own state. Oh wait, that's right, we don't have smog checks. I guess that's because we don't have any smog.

Yes, i got carried away with the faces, nobody is talking.
Tell that to the folks in Australia and Europe.
The main reason for not selling a diesel here before now is there was very low demand. If fuel prices don't get out of hand and somebody can muzzle the EPA there will continue to be low demand.

I don't think that Jeep or the dealerships are anticipating selling too many of these...maybe Pat can chime in on this.
I spoke with one the Jeep dealers in Tulsa and they are only getting 12 allocations of the CRD and were only going to place 8 orders at first.

Milous is Limited currently available with Lux group if you get the stock gas V6?

Was hoping to get Limited + Lux + Tow + 20" but I have heard Limited can't come with Lux unless you get diesel???

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Can your dealer select diesel as an engine choice yet?

One more question you or someone else might know...This is my first car purchase from an out of state dealer and I was curious about sales tax. Is it paid in your home state upon registration or in the state where the vehicle was purchased?
Sales Tax is generally paid when the car is registered. Sales tax is only paid on the difference with the trade in, at least in the states I have lived. Once, I traded in a car that was worth more than the new car and paid no sales tax at all on the new car. I got a check from the dealer when I bought the new car.

If you sell your car to a third party, you do not, at Least in Florida, get the reduced sales tax. I usually sell my car to Carmax because they give me more and make up the difference in what I lose on the sales tax.

If you buy a car in a Tax free state like New Hampshire and then after a period of time move to a tax state like Florida, very often you don't ever have to pay the tax.

Another issue of buying in another state is you a driving an unregistered vehicle back to your home state. Many states allow temporary registrations many do not. If you are trading in a car very often you can put the trade-in's license plate on the new car and drive with the bill of sale for a period of time.

Of course, regardless of your registration you should have insurance on your new car. All you need is your VIN number to secure your insurance. Contact a local insurance carrier with your new VIN number before you go to buy it.

Except for insurance the procedures for registration and sales tax can be completely different in each state. Contact your local registration office; this can be a town/city, county or state run office depending on your area. They will explain everything you need to know.

At least, that's what I hope. Wonder what kind of actual difference in priority it would make. I think I'll ask my dealer for a copy of the "real" order sheet to make sure.
Update on this, my build and scheduling priority are both "1" / "01" too. Another difference I noticed is that for sold orders it looks like it comes with an "additional 7.5 gallons of gas" (not sure if this is automatic or the dealer manually chose it).

Another concern for some - check with your bank/credit union or whomever you are financing through. Some entities will not provide a loan to you if you are purchasing out of state.

If you are using Chrysler for the loan, you can just handle that through the dealer though.
