Same here. If this is true that they will be pushed to 2015, I will cancel my order too.

Maybe they're taking the time to fix their horrible, slapped-on, vulnerable DEF injector/wiring-routing design for the diesel? Here's hoping, so I can order one. Otherwise, '16 GMC Canyon DuraMax crew-cab short-bed, here I come.

I suspect you're right since it was available to order initially, then the hold was announced shortly after all of the online forums lit up with complaints about the DEF injector. Chrysler really can't afford widespread problem reports before the engine has a track record. It's better for them to hold orders and fix it.

The only other rationale might be that the Ram is more profitable and/or Chrysler believes they'll be capturing more conquest customers with the Ram diesel than the GC diesel.

What are dual tips?

Doubtful. I've heard from many many places that they are simply allocating more diesel motors to the Ram 1500. I suspect there is no other reason for delay.

That makes sense and unfortunately lends support to the rumor of no more diesel GCs until 2015. The calendar year 2014 registration numbers will give RAM boasting rights against GM pickups. Also Mike Manley the head of Jeep was quoted recently saying no diesel for the Cherokee until the USA Grand Cherokee diesel sales are double digit percentages of all GCs. So far they are around 8.5%. Of course if we can't buy them they won't hit double digits!

That would be too bad. The issue is a complete deal breaker for me. If JGC diesel take rates are below their expectations (as they implied in an article awhile back), I hope they realize their own botched emissions system implementation could be partially at fault, rather than concluding "Americans just don't like diesels that much." Other makes/models with DEF don't seem to have this problem.

Local dealer posted this on his facebook page (Jeffrey Jazbec): New 2015 Grand Cherokee hitting the lot! — at Adventure Chrysler


Dissapointing to see the Limited has lost it's standard dual exhaust. Will it even be an option on the Limiteds?

No Diesel till 2015?
So that's how they treat a paying customer who is willing to dish out way over 50 Grand.

How do they expect to get their sales double digits?

According to my dealer and MOTS info here, my JGC Summit CRD is still in D1, no delay (doubt that). No letter from Chrysler either, as others have stated. Orderd June 10th.
