I believe you may want to view the first post in the following thread which is posted by one of our "insiders"...your statement doesn't jive with what is about as official as one can get...

Re: well its official

well i know because cueter chrysler jeep dodge in yipsilanti michigan and all other michigan jeep dealers have not opend the ordering process as of this morning when they called me not all insider info is 100% accurate
Cueter Chrysler Jeep Dodge
Address: 2448 Washtenaw Ave, Ypsilanti, MI 48197
Phone: (888) 203-4604
call them yourselves if you want
they can take orders but they dont have literature on anything yet that has been printed by jeep but tomorrow ill be getting a assecory list
dealers tend to keep you on their high priority list when you tell them you want to buy a 2016 jeep grand cherokee summit model with every option except entertainment (because it eats up half the center counsol unless the revamp has changed that too) and i also want as many of the accessories as i can get that i will of course be using regularly and to top it all of it will be a cash purchase
also the date of production might be a little as i also have an insider and like i said they cant be 100% certain

Please let us know when they give you a copy of your precise order AND most importantly your VON number. Only then will you know they actually placed an order for a 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Chrysler.

If the dealer can't/doesn't give you a VON then you do not have an actual order being scheduled for production out of that dealers allocation. All you have is a promise for a FUTURE guaranteed order.

Re: well its official

There were dealers back at the '14 intro taking orders ahead of time. That doesn't say when the order was placed. I remember people waiting for weeks to get their von.

I placed my order a week after the banks opened and had my von when I walked out of the dealership.


And I don't know anybody.

Yep same deal as this thread, ADVANCE non-guaranteed "orders". No VON within minutes, hours or a day or two = no actual order.

Re: well its official

I think you're being scammed by those dealers...

We are fortunate at this forum site to have a number of insiders (not at the dealer level...at the manufacturer level) and there's been no indication from them that MY16 ordering is possible at this early date. Jeep only issued the first press release on the MY16 a few days ago. MY16 is a delayed introduction (and a short model year) and production isn't staring until late November/early December. Order banks don't typically open for the next model year until about a month or so prior to production start. The factory is still producing MY15 vehicles with delivery of orders typically 5-7 weeks from the order date when a VON is issued. If you do the "time math", the last ordering for MY15 is about a month away if things progress as they have each previous model year.

well you are right because i had a friend go to the dealer and check for me and see if he could place an order and pretty much all they could do was place an order for the 15 and hold it until 16s were ready to order. i assume that this happend to me because i told the dealers that i wanted a 2016 fully loaded every option with the hemi and all the accessories that of course i was going to put to use and told them that it would be a cash purchase and they had $$$$$ roll across their eyes and screwed me so i apologize on getting people wound up
