Pat from fields already posted the 3rd quarter production update a couple of weeks ago..... Is there a further delay? The official Chrysler note seemed to be production start July or late June. Is there anything more specific now?

Thx

Production Start
•Production of the 2014 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel is currently planned to begin in Q3. Customers will still see a "Late Availability" message in marketing materials until that time.
•Dealer ordering and allocation details will be communicated closer to production start.

I think what he is trying to say is that the "late June" production that has been recently reported is not happening...

Can't say im surprised -- glad I gave up and ordered the HEMI earlier this month :)

Honestly I wouldn't expect diesels on the road or at the dealerships until September at the earliest...

Does anyone know why this is happening?

Late production is one thing. The reason is another. Supplier issues? Demand? Quality issues?

Anyone?

yes....this is in addition to what pat posted. I would expect them early-mid 4th as of now. There are some issues I cant reveal. I tried to be a little optimistic with the title ad first post.

Easy: "Chrysler Group LLC Reports April 2013 ...Jeep® Grand Cherokee sales up 27 percent; best April sales since 2005"

When the demand drops, the diesel & other "late availablity" will become available.

Thanks for the intelligence gathering! Not the news I particularly wanted to hear (as one who has been waiting since last year on CRD release and ordering)...but this info let's me make a better decision for my impending purchase.

May decide to get a nice 2014 Overland 3.6L V6 right away at a group buy price...and let Jeep really work out all of the CRD production issues and dealer support issues in North America during the next few years. Trade it in 3 years or so down the road for the next-generation JGC...

I've been waiting since I first heard about it in 2010 so as long as I get it before my current tires wear out I'm OK.

Eyeballing the 2014 Durango right now.

Trying to figure out if the Hemi is required for the full 4x4 (low range selection) or if the V6 can do it as well.

Figure, I'll look at the CRD for the Grand Wagoneer in a year or two...
