Personally, I am a bit dissapointed in the color. What do you guys think?
Wow. Hard to believe jeep is using a gray/silver color

Platinum Chrome is the same color of the Altitude honeycomb grille inserts. It's shiny but not as shiny as chrome.

That would make sense - considering the exact wording for the California Package grille:

"Gloss Blk Grille-Platinum Chrome"

So I would say we will probably see the Altitude-grille on the California-Package, too.

The Bolded & Underlined part is the catch. To my knowledge, no 2014 WK2 in the U.S. was equipped with a Lane Departure Warning system. And its not listed on the 2015 WK2 specs either. But things can and have changed mid-year.

Pricing and line-up availability in Australia? [Re: 2015 GC - Features & Changes]

Hi all,

I've started a dealer crawl around Brisbane to get a sense of local pricing and line-up/options that will be offered in Australia for my15 JGC.

So far: nada. The sales folk have been friendly and professional but the sales line (similar across dealerships) has been variations on:

Sales guy: "The my15 features and pricing will be the same as my14".
[Possible translation: I have a yard full of my14's and a boatload or two more of them coming. I need to sell them before even acknowledging that my15's exist, and besides, I'd prefer to receive a commission cheque this side of Xmas.]

Me: "Oh? There are material changes to the Laredo and Summit in particular in the USA. Are those changes not coming to Australia?"

Sales guy: Goes into a Manuel @ Fawlty Towers "I know nooooothing" ["Jeep Australia tells us nothing"] fallback.

I'm not bagging the sales folk there - they'd be financially foolish (and, perhaps, fired) for saying anything else, given the current between-m.y. timing of my crawl.

So my question is: does anybody know, or have an educated guess as to when the Australian my15 line-up (one rep seemed to think that Jeep Aust would offer only a subset of the full USA line-up/options) and pricing will become available to dealerships here so that I can actually order one and, you know, be sure of what I'm buying and the price I'll be paying?

Cheers,
JD

Your dealer is not feeding you BS, they know nothing, it was the same for MY14 release. We all knew more about the models and specs before they did.
Expect the same model line-up as we currently have. Expect the same spec as we currently have. Basically unless you’re getting a Summit, what you see in the yard now is what we will get for MY15.
From looking at your other posts I’m guessing you’re looking at an Overland, so expect no changes at all to what our MY14 Overlands are. I would expect the prices to stay the same too.

We should see MY15 arrive in Jan, maybe a miracle happens and Dec, but based on MY14 timeline, it should be Jan for our first lot. Based on MY14, pricing will be available about two weeks before they’re on sale.

Sooooo Milous, how will this effect people (me) who already were able to place an order for a 2015 diesel? Will I still experience a delay, and will I receive whatever changes it is that they might be making?

I want to make sure that if they are changing something, that I don't get screwed out of said change because I got my order through before they shut down ordering for them.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

My dealers are all telling me that Jeep is not taking any orders at this time for the 2015 GC Summit diesel. Everything else but the diesel. I know diesel availability isn't until October/November but has anyone else run into the problem of not being able to order one to get in line? Buying this vehicle has become a test of patience. Milous any thoughts?

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Checked with my dealer today. My 2015 w/ diesel is scheduled to ship July 25th apparently. That's great news for timeframe, but it concerns me. I can't seem to figure out WHY there is a delay and if they are changing something with the diesel system. I won't be very happy if they have decided to implement a change but only to order being placed down the road, while they build existing orders as is. People on the phone can't seem to understand where I am coming from, but it makes perfect sense to me.

It seems my only hope here is you, Milous. Please shed some light on the situation??

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The owner of my local dealer just called me back and said that he called his rep for me. The rep told him that it is a supply issue and they need to finish building out their current orders before accepting more. The rep told him no additional changes are being made.

Hopefully this is the truth. A little confirmation would be great!

So shipping estimate is 7/25. That puts delivery around the middle of August.

That's great that you already have a shipping estimate and so soon! Mine is still in prerelease (not even D1) and I ordered it on 6/12.

Yeah I was surprised when he told me they had an estimated ship date already. I thought production didn't even start until 7/22.
