Special order lead time?

Tried to do some searching but didnt find much, so I am wondering what would be the rough lead time for a special order WK2?

Re: Special order lead time?

A factory order generally takes 4-6 weeks...but of course, the time can vary based on a number of factors, including a dealer's allocation (affects small dealers more probably), transportation logistics from the factory to the ordering location, random inspection cycles, production mixes, etc. Some folks have received them as soon as 4 weeks on the dot...

A factory order is a great way to get "exactly" what you want...something that's often difficult if buying off the lot or via dealer trade. Compromises are the rule, rather than the exception in many cases there.

Re: Special order lead time?

Special ordered our Grand Cherokee Overland on 3/09/15, only 30 days latter we picked it up. My salesmen said that that was fastest then he had ever seen a special ordered G.C. get out here to So. Cal. , previous record was 33 days.

We've enjoyed our first 1400 miles already!

Cheers

Ours took exactly 6 weeks. Also 6 weeks for the other two vehicles.

Re: Special order lead time?

We ordered our GC Ecodiesel Limited on March 6, and it was delivered to the dealer on May 5th.

As has been previously mentioned, dealer allocation is important since my dealer had to jump through some hoops to get authorization to push ours through since they were apparently fully allocated.

Huge benefit to factory order, besides those already mentioned is that ours came with 16 miles on the odometer, so no morons have test driven it during the break in period trying to see how fast it will get up to 90mph from a dead start, etc... Vehicles bought off the lot are already used, IMO.

Finally, be sure and check out the 1% below invoice Chrysler affilate program.

8 weeks and 2 days.

Plus, "This vehicle was built especially for Ralph Kramden." is printed at the top of the window sticker. Actually, put your own name in the blank.

Re: Special order lead time?

Yeah, I am pretty much thinking to get it the way I want its going to have to be a special order. Unfortunately finding one the way I want in stock is almost impossible.
How does dealer allocations work, is it something where a dealership is only allowed so many units in a year?

Per month based on past sales. Some only get one or two per month, others can get dozens.

Re: Special order lead time?

Sounds like I better get my order in soon then. Have to call my dealership and talk with them this week, never ordered new before always purchased from dealer stock.

Hoping I can still get a decent price even though I wont be buying from dealer inventory.
