If I remember correctly, and I'm sure someone will let me know if I remember wrong, Jeep did not release pricing on the 4xe until after it announced that the first one was on the production line.

I hate the wait as much as everyone else, but what can be done about it...not much!
At 11:20 into the 392 reveal () the guy says Jeep already started production... they must’ve had to put the brakes on that!

It is all just a chess match. Ford came out and crushed it with the Bronco release. Jeep needed to react. They did with this release. Then Bronco was delayed and all the Jeep people laughed. Now the Jeep is delayed and the Bronco folks are laughing.

Bottom line seems like a lot of manufacturers are having delays and issues because they can’t get parts. You know those Chinese parts for your American cars.

All brands are having major supplier issues due to COVID... they'll all get built, it's just going to be a slow dribble until they all arrive.

Correct and that's why I said - "Bottom line seems like a lot of manufacturers are having delays and issues because they can’t get parts. You know those Chinese parts for your American cars."

Being built is one thing. Not releasing the price is a BS move.
100% agree ^^^^

Crazy, uncertain times we are living in.

Me: "Hey Honey, so I want this top-of-the-line Jeep, that is maybe coming next week or a month or two months, but no one knows exactly when it will come or how much it will cost! Can I get it!? "

Who else is having a hard time with their significant other about this? lol My wife is asking me everyday "Do you know the price for the Jeep yet?!?"

So the marketing team hasn't been told to change anything. Website still says coming in January. WTF? Every single one of you that has ordered one should be voicing your displeasure with them directly via their site and phone. You are customers and by not voicing it they will thinks this business practice is ok. It's not.

Edit. We can be understanding. Just say what the problem is and give us a new date. Give us the pricing already too.
Edit2: Here is the link to their contact us page.

that's why it's sometimes better to just do it yourself....may not have the same level of warranty support for all parts (no big deal) and no exhaust toggle switch (which is cool even if just a gimmick) but it's real and home in a week.

6.4L HEMI done at RubiTrux - pretty much same engine that goes in the JL392 with some differences in the tune obviously Pricing is on their website and runs at 35K for a proper swap. Not cheap but at least it's a known price ;). I was close trading in for the JL392 when it was announced but I like my rig and didn't want to buy another new car again...plus I think cost wise will come out about the same with the hit I would have taken on trade with mods. Plus you can get your HEMI in a 2 door and a 6-speed if that's more your thing.

No S***, I spent a good 2 hours today wasted trying to find a pair of rear shocks at dealers nearby. Their parts service departments are about as useful as any govt entity.

Exact opposite for a matter or fact. My experience is more like, "I don't care what the price is, stop talking about like it's going to make f*&#)^g difference. You know your going to get so stop talking bout it.... and no that doesn't mean start taking about the engine. you thought about what we're doing for dinner?" That's my issue, I get no response when all I want to talk about it my Hemi Wrangler :rock:.

I’ve heard this on the Porsche forums with delay of the 992 GT3 reveal as Porsche doesn’t want to extend the expected gap from reveal to delivery. FCA should take some notes from Porsche.

My wife’s custom ordered Cayenne, however, is actually 12 days ahead of schedule. Waiting for a boat to cross Atlantic currently.

Agreed!
