When will the new cherokee be available to order from dealer?
 
Looking to order an new Trailhawk and the dealers have no idea when the order banks will open for customer orders. Anybody have info on when this might occur?

Thanks

Might be some news in the existing thread on the new Cherokee.

I've been checking every day. When I order mine, I'll be the first to open a thread here. ;-)

The order guide has been leaked (here and other places), production had started (still believe they're FWD V6's though), and there really isn't that much time if they've promised "ample inventory" by September. I would wager the order banks open end of this month with dealer and sold orders arriving end of August, early September.

For those of us who are itching to buy, here's a link for AOL AUTO to configure and build your Cherokee.

Milous has had the information up for several weeks on his thread. You can also price it out on Edmunds.com, if Milous' thread is too difficult to use. :D

Since the dealers now have their order guides, I suspect some of them would be willing to take your order even if the order banks are not yet open.

If the order banks are not open than its useless to give a dealer an order weather they would take it or not.

Wrong. Many dealers will take your order, hold it, and place it the day the order bank opens. My wife's car was purchased that way.

What was wrong about my statement? If the order banks are not open than giving the dealer is order is nothing. It just means they will write down what you want and probably take a deposit on something they can't even order yet. I guess I don't understand the logic in that.

Don't see the Cherokee on the order bank list for tomorrow...

Do you think he will call you the moment the order bank opens, or will he be too busy placing orders? If I really want a car, I want my order put in first, not last. There will be an allotment, you know.

I don't think it has to be at the moment. I think if you found out the banks were open you could go and order it. I don't think you would really lose anything if it happened to be the next day. I guess everyone has a different take on it but to give them a deposit on something that is not being built yet to me is a waste. The problem is you have no idea how long it will be for the trailhawk that most people want. It could be anything from weeks to months to over a year who knows. I will use the Dart as an example when that was first shown at the Detroit auto show they had an RT with a 2.4 that was supposed to be coming out. That was a year an a half ago and the now GT with 2.4 just went into production. Had someone put an order in for that with a dealer it would have sat there all this time and there still isn't an RT.
