How Long to Build and Deliver?

I ordered a 2014 GC Limited 4 weeks ago. (V6, ORA2) The Jeep website still shows the status as "Production Scheduled". Anyone get a GC ordered and delivered recently that can share how long it took to get built and delivered?

The Colorado winter is coming and I need my new Jeep!

I just placed an order yesterday (though it won't get truly placed until Monday) and two dealers were reporting 4-6 week delivery times and ~10 day build times. In other words, I would suspect in the next 4 days it should start getting built. Then again that may just be wishful thinking on my end.

Ordered Aug 29..Delivered Oct 8.
Mine sat in Production Scheduled for about 4 weeks. Once Status goes into Build mode it'll be through all the steps in less than a week. Will be in shipment status maybe another week after that.

Ordered mine 9/26, currently in Shipment status. Per my dealer it will be delivered 11/4
Production Scheduled took about 10 days. Actual build was pretty fast and missed it all next update was Final Inspection that took about a week and then shipment for about a week now too. So, if delivered as scheduled should be 5 1/2 - 6 weeks.

We put in our order on 10/19, got confirmation of the order 10/23, and notice that it was scheduled for production 10/24. The dealer said allow 6-8 weeks, but that they were usually coming in six. Ours is a V6 Overland, Maximum Steel with Brown/light frost. It should be a great Xmas present.

WOW, on Monday mine went from Production Scheduled to Paint, then on Tuesday morning it is already on Shipment. I hope they had time for the Final Inspection...

For future reference, when you order a Jeep from the factory, how much does that impede getting a really good deal on the price?

None, unless 5.5% below invoice is not a really good deal for you. This is an delivery time thread, price questions may get a better response in the "what did you pay" thread.

That's better than I'd have thought. And I'll likely go that route next time around. Thanks for the response.

Mine was ordered on 10/24, and it's scheduled for production on 11/16. Not sure what kind of downtime they have around Thanksgiving. I'm guessing I'll see it early December.

Hmm, 11/16 is a Saturday. Seems odd to me. Mine was ordered the 10/23 and went to "Production Scheduled" on 10/24. How did you get the scheduled production date? I don't see that on the VOTS site.

My sales rep emailed me and told me it's scheduled for production the week of 11/16. Maybe they have more info than what's displayed on the VOTS site?
