Is Jeep taking new diesel orders or not?

Has anyone gotten an order for a 2015 Jeep GC diesel through to Chrysler since Sept 1, 2014? That means that Chrysler has acknowledged the order and committed to making the vehicle so you really know for sure you have one coming. Local dealers continue to say they cannot order the vehicle yet, while one says Chrysler is "hand picking" orders to accept. The latter comment sounds fishy. Milous, any thoughts?

Re: Is Jeep taking new diesel orders or not?

I placed an order for a 2015 GC diesel on 9/10. A VIN number has been assigned and I am currently in status D. I've heard production isn't scheduled to start on the diesels until October, so we will have to wait and see when it will actually be built.

Placed my order on 9/9 and the order status changed to "production scheduled" (D) on 9/11. I have a VIN. It's a pity you're in Mass, and for whatever reason can't play in the DC group buy... If you're not having luck with local dealers, try a larger volume dealer farther away. Good luck.

Re: Is Jeep taking new diesel orders or not?

Yes, Jeep is taking orders. But some dealers have less order allocation than other dealers. If your local outfits are saying they can't order, it could be that they have run out of September allocation for that particular trim/engine combination. Or maybe they just don't want your business...

How did you get your VIN? I am in production scheduled also. Summit ordered 9/13.

If you go to VOTS and put in the VON, I think it will give you the VIN.

There's a plug-in you have to run in Chrome to get VOTS to work. That's where I found my VIN.

Did it slip from the beginning of October? Either way, thanks for the update!
