    "Toledo: Jeep Wrangler (JK) orders will open on August 10, 2017, and production will begin on October 2, for both standard and Unlimited."


    Well that is a tad bit earlier than previously noted.

    Dave, the dates that you mention for the 2018 KL and the Journey, are they for the refreshed KL and the new Journey?

    Mike is responsible for all of this, not me! He got the info and wrote it up. I was unaware of any of that info.

    Thanks Dave, but bigger thanks to the great people connected to FCA that quietly provide Allpar with great details like these.

    My Various and Assorted Sources are Telling me that the "H" Engine has Launched at the Secret Downriver Location.
    (AKA. 2000 Van Horn Rd. Trenton, MI).
    It is on the Same Exact, Precise Location the made B & RB V-8 Intake Manifolds. Also is on the Modified and Update Assembly Line that Made the T/S 4-Banger in Recent History.
    Now If the Machine Shop can keep up making Enought Parts !
    There is some kind of Good Karma about them being Assembled on that Spot !

    A Question:
    Does the New 2018 Cherokee being built at Belevdere have a 3.2L V-6 or a 3.6 L V-6 ?

    No. Cherokee refresh has been pushed back to 2019 model year to allow Belvedere to work the issues out if there is any after launch. Journey replacement will either be a mid-2019 or early 2020 launch.

    But it's going to be a very early 2019 model year car, correct? I believe I've seen that on here.

    2018 Cherokee has 3.2L
    The refreshed 2019 Cherokee will also have 3.2L I thought.

    I'm trying to see if you are hinting at something here :)

    I'd be happy with the 3.6L in the 2019 Cherokee

    On my way into work this morning I saw what appeared to be a Durango SRT headed south on US23 in a hauler, so deliveries are definitely starting. Whether it was really the SRT or if it was actually an R/T or GT I have no clue since I was headed the other direction.

    Again depends on demand.... it's slated for 2019 production, but could be moved back a year similar to Ram DT was. But it's still coming. Remember Journey stays for the beginning part of 2019.

    Well it appears that some top 20 dealers have no idea or just don't care..... o_O:(

    That's disappointing.
