2015 gc diesel production date

Any news on the start date for 2015 GC diesel production? Mid October is almost here. Insiders have you seen any yet or know what's going on? Anybody who has a VON and VIN assigned do you have production dates?

I, too, would like to know about '15 diesel orders / prod start. The link above might be a mistake.

I takes me to "I'm new here" thread.

Re: 2015 gc diesel production date

Ordering has been open for awhile (for dealers with allocation) and Milous indicates production will be starting very shortly.

Re: 2015 gc diesel production date

So does the lack of dates for North American diesel orders listed in the Milous report indicate that diesel production really isn't planned? The June 2014 orders went D1 but are TBD for delivery. The September 2014 orders are TBD for D1. Having been a plant production scheduler decades ago production runs were planned weeks in advance so the parts train could be set up. Incoming orders were booked immediately against those runs and customers given delivery dates. It isn't rocket science. Is Chrysler serious about producing Jeep GC diesels or not? Note to Chrysler execs: Jeep Garage folk are some of your best customers. Treat them that way!

Re: 2015 gc diesel production date

No, it just indicates that Milous hasn't found a definitive date yet. He posts that kind of thing as soon as he gets confirmation. I don't believe they would have started accepting orders again if they didn't have a plan to go back in production.

Re: 2015 gc diesel production date

Like I said, mine has an estimated ship date of 10/27 now. I was told it went into production earlier this month.

Also, Jeep called me directly in September to apologize for the delay in my order. Offered me a free maintenance package, and promised that my diesel JGC will be "built in october"

Re: 2015 gc diesel production date

Milous's system is excellent as witnessed by the detail that surrounds all the gas production vehicles and export diesels. That would say that if he can't find the dates for these assigned serial numbers Chrysler doesn't have them. No dates = no firm plan to produce them, at least in the near future. I feel for the folks who ordered in June. Having their vehicle by USA Thanksgiving is unlikely. Christmas maybe.

Jeep needs a D-Day. D for diesel. A day of GC production dedicated only to diesels. Clear up all this backlog.

IF mine ships 10/27 like they said, I would expect mine sometime before thanksgiving. I see that I ordered mine a few months before you though.

I doubt yours would be that much farther out past people who ordered when the banks originally opened though.
