Jeep Dealer Says: 2014s: V6 & V8- 3 months: CRD - 6 months

My local Jeep Dealer says it will be 3 months before the 2014 V6 & V8 models hit the showroom and 6 months (or later) for the diesel. Just saying, for those of you chomping at the bit to see, drive and buy.

Let's hope he's being a little conservative. I take anything most dealers say with a grain of salt anyway. Not to knock all of them (for example, Pat) but a lot of them seem to either be major bullcrappers and/or they are the last ones to know what's going on. I think a couple of days ago someone said their local dealers were saying that the order banks for the 2014s wouldn't be opening for several months yet.

I remember taking a test drive of a 2013 in late September and telling the salesman on the drive how I was trying to decide if I wanted to wait for the 2014s for the 8 speed or not. He made it sound like it was totally likely that the 8 speed might not ever make it into the Grand Cherokee much less the 2014, and I'm pretty sure he also said it was also possible that the 2014 wouldn't be coming out early after all either.

Whether he was lying to convince me to buy a 2013, or he just had no clue what he was talking about / was given erroneous info by someone else, who knows, but fortunately I knew his info was incorrect and didn't listen to him (thanks Milous and JeepGarage.)

Most probably mid May would be the soonest if I recall correctly (production starts Mar 25 + 6-8 weeks for QA/QC and Delivery).

He might be right. The pictures of the shift lever only show a 2 speed (D/S). Chevy used a 2 speed for years, and they were the best selling brand at the time.

This is one of the highest volume jeep dealers in the US, so they are usually piped in to the latest info.
