Re: Special order lead time?

Ours was ordered March 9th, built march 26th, delivered April 7th, we picked it up the 11th.

You should get a better deal on a ordered unit since they tie up no money it.

Re: Special order lead time?

It shouldn't take any more than a month. Here is a detailed video of the Jefferson North assembly plant in Detroit where they, (special customer ordered Grand Cherokees), are built. They build over 1,200 a day, and every one of them is sold before they roll off the line. 1,200 vehicles a day equates to over 36,000 vehicles a month.

What I found rather interesting is every Jeep Grand Cherokee is designed and sealed to sit in 21 inches of water for 30 minutes, and not leak.

Actually, the exact opposite is true. If they have a vehicle sitting on the lot, they've got their money tied up in it, with nothing coming in. They will be more inclined to make a better deal on what they have, rather than order one. Or else try to get you one off another dealers lot. (That happens all the time).

This is especially true if the vehicle has been there for a while. Dead money tied up in expensive, extensive inventory is a highly motivating factor for all of these dealerships. Especially the larger ones who can have close to, if not over $50 million sitting around in inventory. They are geared to sell what they have because of their large, extensive inventory. Smaller, country bumpkin dealerships, not so much. They like any sale, any way they can get it.

Re: Special order lead time?

You all have been very lucky. I ordered on 1/14 and the vehicle should be delivered this week. It has taken 4 months and one week. It was screwed up either by the dealer or Jeep. The dealer says Jeep. They changed my sold order to a stock order and they did not check on it until I complained. They than started blaming each other. It will be interesting to see what they offer for the two month delay. Otherwise good luck and I would order again, just not from Jeep.

Re: Special order lead time?

Did you guys have a harder time negotiating a good deal on a special order vehicle?

I'd imagine they have less of an incentive to bargain with you, as opposed to a car that's been sitting in their lot and they want to move...

Re: Special order lead time?

It might be a little harder to get the best deal on an ordered vehicle since it's not taking up space on the dealer's lot, but as many Jeeps that are produced each day and dealers that exist, the difference should be very little, if any. For a more restricted vehicle like a Corvette (for example) that depends heavily on a dealer's allocation, there's much less room for negotiation. I ordered my Jeep well below invoice FWIW.
