Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Owner of the dealer called me back and said he got a second answer, this time from the regional rep instead of just the local area rep. He had the same answer. They are allocating more of these motors to the Ram 1500 and finishing up 2014 JGC diesel builds before accepting more orders on 2015 JGC's.

Still would be nice for a confirmation, but that's what I've got.

I'm in the same boat JsnMR2...ordered a diesel Limited in mid-June and have been told tentative shipping date at the end of July. Did that second response you got also confirm that it isn't design/manufacturing changes that has caused this current order hold on the diesels?

I specifically stressed that if the delay was due to ANY changes, I wanted to know and I wanted to make sure orders that snuck in before the delay were going to receive said changes. Both reps individually said there were no changes. Only that they were finishing up 14 builds, and allocating more diesel motors to the Ram 1500 before accepting more orders on JGC diesels.

Guys don't forget that if you get a level 3 membership at JeepGarage, Milous will track your vehicle for you and it is much more detailed and accurate than VOTS. So far I'm the only one tracking a Grand Cherokee in the VIP 2015 tracking thread.

I'm so jealous, my salesman drug his feet and didn't get my order in before the delay. I am glad to hear it is just a supply issue and not a mechanical problem causing the delay. I'm ordering a White Summit 4x4 diesel with brown interior. Can't wait!!

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Hearing that there are no changes to the diesel confirms for me that I made the right choice to snap up a 2014 ML350 Bluetec last week. For those considering the ML as an alternative, 2014 is the last year for a V6 diesel. The 2015s will have a 2.1L 4 cylinder diesel and will be badged as ML250

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I considered the ML350 Blutec. In reviews though, it is not as capable off road. I won't be doing any really heavy off roading. May have to handle heavy snow at times. We also do some serious camping here and there. Will also be towing a race car and boat. The JGC just seems like more of a work horse IMO. Not to mention with the options I would want, the 20k price difference.

The diesel is not as refined, but coming from a deleted/programmed 2011 F250, that does not bother me one bit.

I will be considering the new 2015 C class though. Such a huge improvement from the older ones and way nicer then the 3/4 series from BMW now.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

curious for those in the know:

looking at a summit diesel 2015 because i want the cali package, as i dont like the grey along the bottom of the 14.

what does the estimated time frame look like for delivery if ordered next month? reason for asking is because got a baby on the way and need a utilitarian vehicle. wife cant get a kids seat in her car. i have a 2500 dodge that is much too noisy and impractical for hauling a kid.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

WAIT A MINUTE! What's this? Today I got a brochure from Jeep in the mail. Included was a card "GET A $1500 BONUS CASH ALLOWANCE ON A 2014 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE ECODIESEL" or get $500 bonus cash allowance off almost any new 2014 or 2015 Jeep vehicle ("excluding Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel"). Must be used by 9/30/2014. We can't order a 2015 GC EcoDiesel because the dealers have too many 2014 GC diesels sitting on the lots!! And they don't want us to buy a 2015. The offer is tempting except I want a GC Summit Diesel and the dark 2014 interiors are depressing, especially on cold stormy days here in the northeast. By the way those light carpets are popular on luxury vehicles here for the same reason.

Re: 2015 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

The offer for the Diesel only on the 2014 is because they are done taking orders for them. The "delay" on 2015 Diesel is reportedly because of engine shortages since they are now putting them in the RAM 1500, too.
