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?
Mike Manley says they won't offer diesels in other Jeep's unless the sales of the Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel increases. How can that happen if they don't build them due to limited engine supply?

It can't. Question becomes is that what he wants? Hope not. Hate to buy an orphan. What doesn't make sense is not giving a definitive date when those already ordered will be built, or taking orders now to get the customer committed even if the delivery date is 3 or 4 months away. That would say some diesel GCs are going to be built and delivered and it is a viable product. Leaving customers hanging like this is not good customer relations.

The $50K+ GC diesels compete with the Germans, all of whom will have revised products announced before the end of the year. Not getting those customers committed now risks loosing them to the competition.

Thanks for the confirmation/update, Milous. Even though it's not what we all wanted to hear

EDIT: I hereby rescind my above (that was based on the Nov/Dec order banks info). Getting a taste of what the '14 diesel early adopters got with SFU 1.0. My wife and I "almost" had ourselves convinced to settle for a gasser and maybe use the $$ saved to step up to a Summit. Would like to be in a new Jeep by Christmas this year regardless. Still looks like we might be able to make that a diesel...

Those dates are for the diesel only, everything else is open for ordering/production.

Nice! You had me worried for a minute there. October was the last update I got from the dealer for production. Back to waiting.......
