My 13 vs My 14
 
All,

It am a tad bitter that my new limited CRD will be a model old as soon as it is rolled off the truck. I would have hoped that any decent dealer would have told me to wait on but I suppose they are worried about the sales. So I may as well swallow the bitter pill and get on with it.

Just out of curiosity apart from 8 speed transmission what are the major differences people have heard about.

There is a huge thread about the my14 in the main wk2 forum.. few bits and pieces are changed but I think 8 speed is the big ticket item.. I know how u feel,the ship after mine had my13s on it!

I don't think you should be bitter. Dealers need to sell what's available and sales staff need to feed their families every week. Disappointment is understandable.

Aside from the eight speed tranny, the nav/radio will have an 8.4 inch screen.
A shark fin antannea will be available/standard.

I am glad I found this site before visiting a Jeep dealer. Otherwise this thread could have been mine.

That said, a new crd should still be putting a big smile on your face,

Think of the poor bloke who stumped up $300k plus for an XJ Jaguar 1 month ago to see jag have dropped the price by $65k. They could have waited a few weeks bought their XJ, bought you an MY13 jeep and been no worse off!

I'd expect a price increase with my14 and IMHO the 5 speed is very good, you'll still be happy and maybe have a bit more cash in the bank for mods

Enjoy it is a great vehicle.

Thanks guys for cheering me up. Heaps excited about receiving the new toy. I suppose it's just human nature but I think the wait on the 2014 would be even longer.

If you wanted a diesel that would have also been a deal-breaker to wait until the 2014s. Also, keep in mind that most salespeople and dealers aren't really aware of most information found on this site. I talked with a sales person just last week letting him know that I want him to send me information about the 2014s when he gets it (just to start buttering him up so I have a few dealers to bargain with). His response was that I was an idiot thinking that the 14s would be out in early 2013. I didn't argue & just left him my information to please contact me. We'll see who the idiot is in a couple months! HA! I should have asked him if he's ever heard of Milous, Chevyboy and Marlon.

Don't blame the poor little salesperson. If you aren't a member of this forum you would think exactly the same.

Why would you manufacture a 2014 product at the start of 2013.

The rest of the world use a model year based on around May. Therefore a MY13, would be released in May 2012 to run thru till Apr 2013, and a MY14, in May of 2013 to Apr 2014.
In this instance, Chrysler have decided to release earlier in 2013 their MY14 model, rather than wait till May.
Everyone faces the same issue with buying anything, which has updates. You buy today's product at todays price, only to find they are releasing a newer and better product tomorrow at different pricing. Look at Apple products as an example.

Not really blaming the sales person but his attitude toward me was very unprofessional. However, if one takes their profession seriously, they should try and stay on top of the latest info.
