Ordered Red Unlimited Rubicon 4xe
I ordered a 2021 Firecracker Red Unlimited Rubicon 4xe today. I've been researching, reading this forum and deciding about a colour since January. The salesperson didn't tell me he needed to feed his children ;), we agreed on a price and I'm now officially on the list. Yes, they tried to sell me rustproofing and an extended warranty, but they only asked once and then moved on. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with the process. He said it should take 4 - 6 months. (More time to save!)

So things are progressing! Looks like my JLUR is on schedule to be built on April 19 which is on target to ship April 28th'ish. Hope to see it by end of May.

My dealer in Innisfail, AB Has been amazing. The GM sends me weekly texts with updates and screen shots like this.

I love seeing all these updates from other Canadian orderers. I went D1 on the 12th as well, and am looking at a proposed ship date of the 19th.

It's looking real boys and girls!

New development, Jeep Chat can't even search our VINs anymore! I tried today, and they couldn't find my vehicle! Freaked me out a bit TBH. They found it with my VON, but then I got the old "Canadian order" boilerplate response. At least he confirmed that my VIN was in fact correct.

They used to be able to see them though, they just usually wouldn't tell us anything. Every once in a while you'd get someone who would share the info. Not they put in the VIN and it comes back with an error.

I just talked to the Sales Manager at my dealership, and he spoke with his rep at Jeep who said the best time to check back will likely be on the projected ship date (19 Apr for me). They're apparently pushing them through very quickly once they start on the vehicle.

Still in D1, but I think there may be a glimmer of light at the end of this tunnel!

I ordered a JLUR, manual transmission, with pretty much every option, at the end of October. Finally moved to D in early March. I am so happy to see some other Canadian orders moving, it gives me hope that I might see my new toy this year.

I have to say that the way FCA treats us Canadian customers really makes me wonder whether my next vehicle will come from them. We ran into similar issues with our truck 2 years ago.

It really is brutal. When I ordered my F-150 it was at the dealer in about 8 weeks.

the worst part is seeing the US orders get shipped in 2-3 weeks from order date. Are metric gauges really that hard? Somebody at FCA Canada needs to raise proper hell to stick up for their customers and dealers.

Honestly we are a small market. They make more $$$ selling in Europe and the Middle East where Jeeps are a luxury item.

Somewhat dated but found this. 2019 Canada was 5th best market worldwide for the Jeep brand. Values in thousands.

I’m sure that’s the Renegades and what not that FCA builds there.

So thought, and work with me here... we’re seeing US orders get delivered in 15 DAYS (not weeks, days). Now that the 392 and 4xe backlog is done, and we’re close enough to 22’s that dealers shouldn’t be stocking the lots, maybe, just maybe, our Canadian orders will start speeding up a LITTLE bit?
