jealous!!Just checked with dealer this morning, ordered 10-16, Vin 5325, Status-F Paint
Jeep help could not find my VIN, hopefully it will be built and shipped before the holidays.jealous!!
Your vin and order date are later than ours. I wonder if paint color choice can hold things up. Do they batch build by color?
Called Jeep help and they still can’t find our vehicle by VIN or VON.
If we use on line chat they find it no problem
It’s going to be very interesting to see how they manage the first set of completed 3.0s without window stickers unless the official fuel economy figures come in under the wire this week.So I called my dealer today since jeep chat down (I’m guessing since it was Sunday). Dealer said ship date says 12/16, but still shows D1 status. I never got a ship date from jeep chat before and 12/16 is only a week away... who knows
I hope you are correct...my VIN is 194955 (Ordered 10/9)I contacted Jeep customer service via email. They responded today that I’m D1 (have been for 1 week) and production is scheduled to begin the week of 12/9 (this week)! Ordered 10/8 and last 6 VIN is 194908.
I don't think it's reasonable to assume that because two vehicles had 3-3.5 month EPA certification timelines from when they were initially tested by the press, the same will hold true for the diesel JL. For one, the testing could be different for hybrid and electric vehicles. Second, perhaps FCA intentionally delayed their press testing in order to align with *expected* EPA certification, or for some other unrelated reason. Three, given the inventory holding costs, why would FCA allow the diesel to enter production (of some of us have been told), with some being told some tentative delivery dates, in order to just fill up some empty lots with them?Alright folks, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I found this fascinating...
As the EPA seems to like releasing fuel economy numbers on Mondays, I had my hopes up for today. Instead we got the escape hybrid and aviator gt phev numbers. Yea boring I know, but click the embedded links to Autoblog’s first drives of each and check out the dates. It took the EPA 3 and a half months to certify the aviator gt phev and nearly 3 months to certify the escape hybrid from the time their manufacturers had let the press drive them. You can bet Ford/Lincoln and FCA had these vehicles and the 3.0 JLU applications into the EPA well before the press drives, which makes this atrocity even more of a joke. Even autoblog comments on how common and ridiculous this is becoming across the industry. If these two releases today are any indication of how long our 3.0s might be sitting in a warehouse awaiting window stickers, we could be looking at 2 more months.
